Possibly because moderators are held to higher standards.
And just how have I lowered my standards by being honest? Being a moderator doesn't meet that I no longer have any opinions, or that I should never express my views here. If you all want moderators who never express any emotions or passion, then perhaps Tom needs to replace me with a bot.
How does writing that I agree with what another poster wrote equate with lower standards. All that I was agreeing with was the direction of this Flight forum, as far as the majority of posts are concerned. When Flight was first released, the majority of posts were mostly about the flightsim aspects, but now they are mostly about the gaming aspects. I am both a gamer and a flightsimmer, but I have always stated that I felt that Flight has great potential . . . but only if more emphasis is placed on the simulator aspects, and less is placed on the gaming aspects. That has not changed since my first day as a beta tester.
If that is never going to happen, and Flight is never going to be much more than a flying game (simplified flightsim), then I will eventually stop using Flight and resign as moderator on this forum. But that has not happen yet . . . an I am still supporting Flight, and still have some hope that it may mature into a more comprehensive flightsim. If that doesn't happen, I will likely end up moving on to P3D.
