I haven't cause honestly, I couldn't care less. Whether Skip called it a "lifestyle" or a "sexual orientation" or whatever word he chose, I don't see the big deal.
Forgive my ignorance here it seems like I'm stirring trouble. I'm not. I just don't see the big deal.
The point you seem to be missing is the implication that his final post is the correct view and then he closed the post as if his word was the final comment. If he had closed the thread with no comment he would have my support, but weighing in on one side and then using his supreme power to end the thread was at the very least bad form. If you view moderators in the sense of the word as its used in political debates, they are there to keep the arguments fair and on track, they dont throw their weight around arbitrarily.
