Why do so many people on /qa/ complain about boards that they clearly do not browse?
Why can't /qa/ chill out like we used to.
Isn't that what moot wanted?
It might do something to halt the multiple threads calling mods out on their incompetence, and their determination to destroy certain boards.
But then the mods would be reminded that they aren't particularly good at their job, wouldn't they :^)
>Why do so many people on /qa/ complain about boards that they clearly do not browse?
They hate that those boards even exist on the same site as their home board.
>Why can't /qa/ chill out like we used to?
Because everybody here thinks they know best.

It's partly his fault. He was a decent admin from a technical standpoint but his total lack of will to stay in touch with his userbase came off like neglect and apathy. This emboldens trolls and makes conspiracy theories flourish.
It's further compounded by the mods hardly ever posting under their trips anymore, being incommunicado unless they're on IRC, and bans being on the ban page now instead of being threadly exhibitions of mod power (and humor).
I don't know if this was a directive moot gave them long ago or if they did it on their own but whatever the original intent was has backfired and caused unintended negative consequences.
I think that at some point moot decided to make 4chan moderation into a great faceless wall which enforces rules as written, to prevent mod personality cults and stave off lynch mobs.
It's pretty boring, though.
Anon, the mods could be the literal meaning of perfect and transparent and /qa/ would still be mostly people bitching about the mods. That's the sort of people a meta boards attracts when its big. There is a reason people say /qa/ needs to go and stop being treated like /q/. It's because most of the people posting are fucking idiots
That's only true if everyone were like you. If everyone were like you then there'd be nothing to complain about to the mods as they wouldn't be enforcing or endorsing any bad behaviour. Humans have disagreements and neither side is correct. You happen to be in opposition to the mods. If the mods did something that you liked then somebody else would be in opposition to the mods. We're snowflakes.
>Humans have disagreements and neither side is correct.
I understand what you are getting at but some sides are simply not defendable (like mod abuse for example.) Some things simply should not be but yeah complaining won't do much of anything at this point.
