As the subject line says, I have some specific moderation concerns that I'd like to discuss with an impartial third party (if such a person has that role on SE). I'm hoping everyone will understand that I don't want to directly link to the post in question; I don't want to put anyone on the spot publicly and would prefer to handle it on the down-low. I just don't know who to contact. Or how. The issues, generally, are:
- I flagged a post. Two different mods publicly addressed my issue with completely opposite decisions and I'm not sure that qualifies as a resolution.
- I am concerned that one of the responses violates this moderation rule: Your goal is to guide the community with gentle, but firm, intervention. Respect your fellow community members at all times; demonstrate fairness and impartiality in your actions.
- I couldn't find anything in the moderation rules that applies to my third concern, and since this is a community-driven site, I'm not sure if I'm in the right or not.
Is there someone who handles moderator moderation? Please know I am not bringing grudge wank to the table here. If I make a mistake I will own it and not repeat it in the future, and I can handle being redirected and advised of SE policy. If there is someone I could speak to, that would be great. I did make sure and look through all the meta posts to ensure this question had not been asked previously. I also looked for some kind of contact information on the site and in both instances I couldn't find anything on the topic. Thanks!
