Donna, Hope you don't mind me butting in, but here's a couple of things: 1) It is always advised to take things private. It not only prevents any accidental embarrassments for either party but it also gives users here the privacy of not being called out in public.
2) What he asked wasn't some abuse of powers at least from my perspective. Can you be a little more clear on how you see it as that? (since you prefer public, I'm asking here. But we can take this private if you want) You stated:
Oooops. I shouldn't have said that because this post might be moved and I'll never find it again.
It has always been and always will be the "rules" that we moderators have to follow, and that is to move threads to the proper forum. And so Reboot was simply asking you if you were joking or not. If not, then perhaps you needed to be explained the rules again. If it was a joke, then so be it. ha ha.
3) Uhm, those people didn't leave because of his heavy handed moderation. If they did, I didn't hear about it. Surely they would have complained to Neil, as any of you all have a right to do. If they don't complain, then there is no problem, correct?
This is the first time I have heard that you are having a problem with the moderation here. So I don't know what's up.
But....we are one of the lightest moderation forums that I know of that's a business one. Yeah, the private ones like MCC are non-moderated, but go to Adobe, MacNN, etc, and you will see a LOT more heavy handed moderation.
Heck, go to the tech section here and people go off topic at the drop of a hat. Do we move/delete the individual posts? No. Should we? Yeah, we probably should.
So, anyway, sorry you feel this way. I hope we see you again some time in the future. You are always welcomed back.

Thanks to everyone understanding that I had other obligations than to deal with this on a weekend. This weekend, I volunteered my time to head up a 1000 person Soap Box Derby with 100 kids racing. I'm pretty spent, but it was another great event -- 4th year now from the event that I founded in 2007.
As for this specific issue, I will handle it behind the scenes with Donna directly. Donna, my email is very public. Send it to publisher@MacTech.com and we'll talk there.
