Above all, it needs to be discussed because it has apparently led to Elvis abruptly resigning (!) from his position as Moderator after only seven months. (This is why I started the Thread for Elvis -- in full solidarity with Elvis and in full support for him.)

"Rigorous Intuition", the board which you sponsor, has been going downhill for some years now. One important and integral factor is the inconsistent moderation, which has been quite a problem at times. This is an ongoing issue in the time since you left, as you once played a much more active role in cultivating a healthy culture within the community.
Never has that been more apparent than now, under the defacto rule of the unaccountable Elvis Administration, which seems intent on running the board as the personal plaything of a small group of problematic posters. It would be no exaggeration to describe them as an ideologically aligned group of serial abusers.
Ultimately this is something that must be figured out in accordance with your own inner presence. I urge you to investigate thoroughly and reflect deeply on what Rigorous Intuition is in the process of becoming. I then urge you to act according to the voice of your deepest and truest conscience.

There are many questions that could, should and must be asked about this. For instance, exactly whom is he casting aspersions on? Why doesn't he name names or provide evidence? Exactly how did he get back in here after Elvis had suspended him? Four days on, no one has answered those questions or any others. Right now, only American Dream is demonstrably present, knows the answers to those questions, and can provide those answers easily.
