An internet oasis of open discussion without personal attacks

What to do then? Who polices the police? I am boiling inside with anger when that happens, when a person of authority on this site abuses the policies and very rules of this site. Other than going to fly a kite, what else can I do about it? Reporting it is stupid, they won't correct themselves, or ban or discipline themselves.
This is a real issue, and it's getting worse and worse. Pleople ignore the rules, or else are not familiar with them, and it's the worst when an admin/moderator does that.

I meant the post that was offensive - not this one - I was not clear - sorry.

THIS is exactly what I am talking about. You just broke a rule, Woodart, and you are not even aware of that, despite being a moderator. According to the rules, no user (moderator or not, admin or not) must tell another user what to do or that he has to do something.
Yes, I'm breaking the rules, too, now, but at least I am aware of it. If that's an improvement of any sort over your breaking the rules. My rule-breaking action is to reply to rule-breaking post, instead of reporting it.
You see what I mean? The rules are completely, completely ignored. I don't know why we can't have a site where the rules are followed and enforced.

Not all rules apply to all forums. Read the first few lines of the first post in this thread once again. Woodart seems right on to me.
