I woudnt say that i regard the staff here as my enemy, but i have watched some threads get locked due to seemingly small "triggers". Certain things, no matter how civilly put, seem to cause massive problems to certain mods.
Just to point one thing out since a lot of people don't realize this, the forum mods have very little to do with the site staff that processes submissions. The teams are for the most part completely different (though there is two member overlap since so few people are even willing to do either job). This is btw also why it might seem at times that staff approves things very inconsistantly. There are simply different people and some might make a judgement call on one thing and then it only later shows that the general consensus swings otherwise. There simply aren't enough ressources to have a multiple eyes approval process going. Hence why there is the option to flag submissions afterwards and get them cleaned up when the public had the opportunity to play and can comment on specifics of a hack.
In an ideal world there'd be enough staff members with enough free time so that several people playtest a hack for a while and then discuss on whether to approve or not. Unfortunately the reality is that one staff member reading the description will have to suffice for the most part. And even then things can pile up in the queue for several days before someone gets to them. It sucks but it's what we have made work for the last 10 (!) years. Let's not tear it all down over interpersonal drama.
