So far as I know, I'm the only staffer with the level of power I have... and that's because I'm highly active and volunteered to help Wes more.
That said, I'm not really in approval of the post-by-post moderation thing. I've seen how it works for news post, and it's actually something very labor-intensive that's likely to fall only on Wes and me. And part of my goal of being in this position is giving Wes less work.
There was a point in SARP where people were able to better behave themselves. Where this wasn't necessary. I still believe in people; why have you stopped? Just move forward and try to be better.
