I used to moderate a forum sometime back. And one thing is certain - we'll always get some member who'd go around and bug everyone in various threads.

Chill out lah.
On criticism, give and take. If you think soembody's critique is too much, just ignore him/her/it. Do you really have to go into emotional distress, contemplate suicide, cry a river.... (Yes I do find such things ridiculously amusing!)
On the standards in CS, c'mon, we all have a part to play in that. And perhaps others, like Sadness, Ivan, jherek, etc can join hands to help raise the standards. Get together for outings, share with us amatuers and make this http://forums.clubsnap.org/showthrea...threadid=14609 a non-issue!
