Since Cowcatcher and Emfleek will be court marshalled and likely banned for violating site rules i.e. piracy, I will act on behalf of Playground and become the interim moderator until further notice.
Finally, someone with an education
Cowcatcher and Emfleek have served honorably. They have stood watch like no other moderators which is why it pains me to have them court marshalled.
We weep about members being banned and we curse the moderators. Cowcatcher and Emfleek have a greater responsibility than we could possibly fathom. We have that luxury. We have the luxury of not knowing what they know. Members' bans - while tragic - probably saved Playground. The moderators' existence - while grotesque and incomprehensible to you and I - saves Playground.
We don't want the truth - because deep down in places we don't talk about online, we want them on that wall - we need them on that wall.
Moderators use words like code.......honor.........and loyalty. They use these words as the backbone of a life spent preserving something. We use them as a punchline. Moderators neither have the time nor the inclination to explain themselves to a you and I who rise and sleep under the blanket of the very freedom they provide - and then we question the manner in which they provide it. Moderators would rather we say 'Thank You' and went on our way. Otherwise, we should pick up a keyboard and report a post. Either way, moderators don't give a damn what we think we are entitled to..
