I think that if an open IAA thread is put back up here, it should be moderated by an impartial Mod i.e. Someone who does not feel as if they have been "wronged"* by any past committee or committee member.
I would like to see Steve or even a non-airsoft Mod for the job. As it is an information channel for a Sports membership and committee, I cannot see why this would not be possible. This person should be free from any coersion for moderation decisions made.
There is too much history between the majority of the current mods and the past IAA committes/committee members for impartial moderation to take place. I don't say this to stir the pot but simply to state a fact.
My 2 cents. Do with it as you please.
* Wronged = online or face to face slagging matches, personal grudges etc.
