- Handling Calls to Remove a Moderator 24 answers
Suppose a moderator has politically incorrect "inclinations" as observed (fairly often) in, say, a chat room. In the event that a couple of users take offence at this, can another moderator possibly "deal with" (and not remove) the offending moderator?
By "deal with", I mean chat kicks, bans and such. Also, can this be done single-handedly or would it require the broad consensus of other moderators (who belong to the SE site the offending moderator is from) as well?
Additionally, in a such an event, can the kicked/banned moderator appeal this "verdict". If so, how would he go about it?
Note: This has nothing to do with any actual moderator out there. I'm (relatively) new to SE, so it's just a curiosity question.
The kind of "offending" moderator that I have in mind, is one who performs his duty pretty diligently, doesn't slack, and is fairly active... but can be a pain in the butt sometimes during chat. Opinions he expresses in chat aren't outright offensive, but they do tend to cause a stir. Hence this wouldn't warrant a removal, merely a kick or a chat ban.
