i think they have their favourites who cant do anything wrong and if you report these then they ban you as a trouble maker.
I disagree (and as someone who gets labelled as a trouble-maker, have some experience) - yes there are "individual personalities" with each moderator - but the basic rules they operate under are fair and it's always (in my experience) been possible to get into a dialogue with them about anything you disagree with.
I can also say, that despite peoples "thoughts" that advertisers get preferential treatment, they dont, and advertisiers complaining and threatening to take their business elsewhere get the basic answer " where would you like your refund check sent to" !
Have I had infractions @ WHT - yep, plenty.
Have they been justified - sometimes, sometimes not, sometimes arguably
Have I complained about them - occasionally.
Did that help - a few times
Do I get "victimised" or "attacked" or "badly moderated" - No.
I have had the good fortune to meet a number of the mods, inet staff and others involved with WHT on multiple occasions, especially through HostingCon, which I *completely* recommend you all attend if possible.
Remember, Mods are people, and people make mistakes based on their own viewpoints, sleep habits, personal frame-of-mind, home-life and experience - it's not perfect, but it's better than anarchy
