You forgot the Moral High Ground Schmuck, who request threads to be closed because they don't meet his "Quality". Or he's offend and can't take it. So he breaks forum rules by telling mods how to run the forum. And by default is questioning a mods decision.

Being the middle-child people pleaser, I might be taken as the guy who tries to get along with everyone...except I still manage to annoy people from time to time, so I absolve myself. Are you annoyed? Stuff it.
