    There's something about the rule that just doesn't.... quite sit right with me.

    Some time ago (way back?) I saw a moderator post something that, while not directed at me (or any other MMi user), was a pretty nasty, and pretty deep insult against a group of persons of which I was a member.

    I responded by returning that insult- at the mod who posted it.
    Got infracted, and warned.

    The infracting mods, explained to me that the original post was acceptable, since the user wasn't insulting any specific member. But because my response *was* specific, that was unacceptable. Essentially, that people who know the rules are allowed to game the rules.

    What I understood at the time: mods are allowed to insult and attack people, users are not.

    What I understand now: there was probably a lapse of judgment on my part, and possibly on the part of the mod who made the original comment. There aren't any "double standards", and mods are ordinarily expected to be polite, too. And if they are impolite, it's appropriate to Report their posts.

    Still, the fact that some types of insults and attacks are permitted and others aren't, does allow people to actually attack and offend people on the site, and not take any flack for it. That the original troll was a mod-troll, only improved their stealth a little. Fortunately, it's not abused very often as far as I can see. (it's been a few years, since that incident, anyway).

    ^ I would take that a step further and say mods are expected to be held to even a higher standard than regular members. We really shouldn't be arguing at all with people even if we are not directly breaking any rules. I don't know much about the incident you are speaking of (before my mod time I am guessing) but I do know what 2K said there was in jest. Hacker is kind of like the mods play toy. We are never fully serious when we say something like that about him.
