Anongoodnurse, a moderator of Parenting, appears to be vastly overreaching her mandate. What to do? The issue is that disparate voices that have significant contributions are driven away, because it's "just not worth it." I'm aware that overmoderation is a pandemic on StackExchange, what should be done?
As per Erica's need for more justification: Moderation is a somewhat sticky wicket. It's not easy to walk the tightrope of keeping the content valid and high-quality, and "tossing the baby with the bathwater" by over-moderating. Sometimes the problem lies with the original thread-starter, sometimes with individual posters, sometimes it's trolling or malicious behavior. Sometimes, also, the problem is that a moderator doesn't agree with info that may lie in a "gray area" of objective validity, and in that situation it's very difficult for a moderator to step outside themself and recognize that they're no longer moderating, they're censoring content that they don't understand or agree with.
If the system doesn't "self correct" here, it can go into the weeds. There are several boards on StackExchange that have reputations as being controlled by "cabals." This is not conjecture or "sour grapes." When this occurs, the only recourse for the average user is to simply abandon it. And that's not a good outcome.
