Conflict of Interest thread

This thread was just shut down, and that was wrong:Mod conflict of interest

That thread should not be closed.

The issue is not really whether or not What Exit should Post in another MB. Sure, stifle discussion about that, fine. We should not have brought that up, but that is NOT the issue.

The issue is not really whether or not discussion should have been shut down in the other thread.

The issue is whether or not a Mod should shut down a complaint about his own actions. The only answer to that is No. That is a clear and obvious conflict of interest.

Shutting down that thread is 'circling the wagons"= “we can’t allow any serious complaints about a fellow Mod.”

A conflict of interest is a serious complaint. This needs to be taken seriously and not just shut down.
