I don't think we need a moderator protection rule. Other sites, even other very successful, much larger sites than this one have rules where you can't question moderators whatsoever. We don't think our moderators deserve to be abused. Do you think users should be able to abuse moderators without fear of repercussion?
On a site where abuse is an acceptable, every day occurrence for the membership (and where mod abuse is also a part of the culture, btw) yes I do.

And fear of retribution is always present even without a rule to justify it because we've had plenty of examples of mods here getting their feathers ruffled by particular posters and then letting it bias their decisions. The rule just makes it easier for mods to take revenge without having to deal with the accusations of bias and butthurt.

And as for "other sites", that's what I meant when I said that this place continues to drift toward being just like all the other message boards on the Internet. I don't consider that a positive even if some of those sites are "successful".
