Being a mod is more than closing threads. Well, maybe not much more on the outside, but it's a symbolization as having authority on the forum and some people feel insulted when a poster they think shouldn't have been chosen is chosen over themselves or a poster they deem more worthy. It's not really the work, it's the meaning behind the work that the admins thought they were better suited for it, or more important, or whatever.
I have no problems with Derek at all, and he can have his opinions, but I do agree that if he didn't want to name any names, he shouldn't have said anything.
