Good post - nicely written.
Personally, I am not left wanting.
But, some may feel otherwise.
The situation I am speaking of was a "cleaning house" of all mods on one board for no apparent reason.
My point in forwarding these feelings to Admin was a suggestion on how they could strengthen that symbiotic relationship with their customers.
We may be the hosted, but we also put the food on the hosts table and keep their lights on.
