Please listen to us. If we state a topic is breaking the rules, please do not continue to post in the topic. Just because we're not a Forum Assistant or General Moderator or an Admin doesn't mean that you shouldn't respect us. We have a lot of responsibility because unlike a Forum Assistant or even a Forum Leader, we're responsible for some 40,000 members and all of the forums. Everything from NMQ&A to COT is our responsibility. If you think that isn't a heavy mantle to bear, allow me to inform you that you're wrong. It's a lot of responsibility. It's a lot of stress.
All we ask is that you listen to us. Is it really that hard?
