On one of the answers made by a moderator to a question on Parenting.SE, I made the following comment. I highly recommend reading the question and answer for background. For those who don't follow the link, the answer is given by a moderator and ends with the following sentence:
Sorry if this sounds like a rant. It's not..
This might be better suited for meta, but I'm having difficulties with the following combination:
Sorry if this sounds like a rant.and the diamond next to your name. Don't take this personal, but shouldn't moderators avoid posts which can be considered (within reasonable terms) a rant? Disclaimers don't cut it IMHO.
The moderator responded and agreed this should be posted on Meta. I raise the following questions:
What's the general opinion about answers of which the author suspects it might be read as a rant?
Are disclaimers enough or should they such answers be rewritten?
Should moderator status be considered in such?
I've said this before and I'll say this again: this isn't personal.
