Chief is back with his privileges restored at the request of many, however, it is my understanding that it has come at great cost. I hope the rumblings are not true and that Aaron has not stepped down from his administrative duties. If they are indeed true, then I cannot help but equate this most recent incident as the final straw for Aaron. If this does prove to be the case, then I extend my deepest apologies to Aaron as someone who may have been a contributor.
From time to time we see harsh words and feelings directed towards the site admin (elves) for certain actions or the lack thereof. Often, we fail to realize/understand the difficulties of their position(s) and the issues they must weigh and balance in performing their given duties. It is easy for us members to mimic judge, jury and warden as it is of little to no consequence. For those who are charged with those duties, their actions are very real. It seems that we do indeed dismiss their degree of difficulty and take their jobs for granted, such as when we push for the banning of some and the reinstatement of others. This is not to say that we as ordinary members should abandon our efforts in what we feel would help imrove SP and it's environment, rather, a little consideration given to those who make the ultimate decisions and a little appreciation for the difficulties they face is in due order.
Aaron, my sincere hopes in that you reconsider your position.
