Quote from Azrael »Its hard to say whether installing globals/admins to continually keep an eye on certain mods is a good solution. I would certainly feel better about not having to terminate anyone, and it avoids any potential bad blood or worries about us being on a vindictive power trip. On the other hand, it might make for extra, unnecessary work for the supervisors. But perhaps I'm underestimating how quickly people can change and improve their performance, if they're told squarely and directly that it's not satisfactory.
Hmm. Here's a slightly different idea, which is somewhat in line with how I would hope to be treated if I were the problematic mod in a similar situation.
1. We post a global/admin to oversee those moderators who we feel are in need of a close eye.
2. We inform that moderator that in lieu of a termination, we're appointing a mentor to retrain, review, and supervise their actions, with authority to overrule them, until that mentor recommends that we either terminate them or return them to normal status.
3. To cover moderators who may accumulate infraction-worthy posts while tenured and insure accountability, we establish a new policy in which we record and date infractions that would otherwise be issued to a moderator, in a thread dedicated to that purpose.
Basically his reasons for leaking info amounted to hatred of the gutter, gutterites getting modded, and Az hitting admin. To that extent, all for an online card forum, Korsakovia was willing to fuel an unstable user's vendetta against the staff. It was really despicable and petty stuff, and all over what amounted to long simmering anger. That's about all I can say, but I am really appalled that someone would go to those lengths just to promote their own version of how a card game site should be run.

I know several of you have expressed frustration with the amount of disclosure regarding this situation, and I certainly sympathize with that. However, I don't think we can (safely) reveal much more than what Korsakovia and Weaver already know, as additional leaks are not beyond the realm of possibility and could be very damaging. That's why we're tiptoeing around so much, as well as wanting to keep our sources of info and evidence protected.
One critical piece of the puzzle that has not been revealed yet here, but that Weaver and Kors both already know, is that [a moderator] revealed Weaver's contact information so that we could potentially take some kind of action, in the GRR thread. Korsakovia leaked that information to Weaver, along with other comments, resulting in [a moderator] also receiving a threat from Weaver and being put into jeopardy of retaliation. So Kors has wound up potentially hurting a lot of people in a very serious way, if Weaver is truly a psychotic threat. And we don't want anyone else being put into that situation.
