I'd hate to see the same thing happen here as well.
It was pretty much smooth sailing on StarTrek.COM during the unmoderated period. It was only towards the end that the major spamming started.
My point is that I prefer professional mods to members being given mod powers.
I also feel it's better if mods do not post in discussions and threads often, other than in threads relating to modwork, because I feel when mods do that, there is a tendency for some to develop grudges against members.
Differences in debates can spill over into modwork.
