You're rewriting history dude

morals and ethics don't mean anything when we're talking about not respecting the rules that we had as a small community. The unsaid rule you broke was manipulating votes and making yourself untrustable to users, as an admin. It was never explicited and I understand that some nero-atypical folks may not get the cue if it's not 100% explicit but you still knew you did "bad" since you were guilty and came out.

People dont resent you because you did "immoral" stuff, but because you fooled them. Most of us are here because we want a chill place where we arent bullshited by the admins. Lo a behold, you were as trustable as a reddit admin. If you just banned her and explained it the next day in meta, everything would have been almost fine.

also prob the heated arguemts with chomskyist where some folks got emotionally involved wiith a straw-man didnt help your case.

There was no vote to mod or demod her. I appointed her as an emergency measure when we were under heavy brigade without consulting anyone other than emma. I removed her privileges the same way. I wasn't going to ask anyone's permission to take away temporary privs, I'm the one who was legally liable for all the kiddie porn the spammers were posting (site is registered in my name) and I added her to handle the night shift during the brigade to protect myself both legally and health-wise from not being able to sleep because I had to stay up to deal with the constant porn spam. It was really no one else's decision and I never claimed appointing admins was a democracy.

I never banned her.

This thread is addressed to the user that said earlier I have no conscience and their moral code makes them better than me

sorry about the wrong vocab, you're right you never banned her, idk why i said that, probably meant banned from admin-ing.

I agree with your decision: it it normal, as an admin, to take decisions that will anger some users. I disagree with the way you handled it, but you prob know that so there isnt much to say anymore.

I missed that one, it probably explains your post then.
