The question was more, who moderates a moderator that makes himself a subject to moderation.
As Dann pointed out, there is more than one moderator.

You don't have to beat around the bush: just openly state that you think thread hijacking and publicly quarreling with the moderator in violation of the charter is perfectly normal behavior, and that it is indecent to criticize it. Then people know where you stand.
That's a derail. I have said nothing about the moderation action itself nor do I want to be involved in that. I criticized you (as moderator and role model) for your unnecessary insults.
Everybody is unique, except me.

Insults? If people take offense to the fact that their actions are typical of a group they consider shameful, it is their own actions that insult them! Not an accurate description of the behavior of that group.

And another derail, you are not willing to admit (or you just don't see, which is even worse) you broke the charter yourself by calling someone an anarchistic trouble-maker then you are unfit for moderator.

Now that we are talking anyway, the rule here is that we have moderator elections twice a year. Your mod time is long overdue. Are you going to take it up with Sam or shall I?
