"5) i would like to STOP the reporting of perceived violations by some members they should learn to ignore them and move on"
in my POV that seems to have been the fuse on this bomb. Yes there have been infractions, but crybabies made life hard for the mods.
I know I was toning down after a nudge and an elbow in the ribs from Square Peg. Carefully done, that sort of thing can help us help each other, coming from someone respected as long as worded right and not done too often.
I don't mean just her doing it. I mean each of us dope-slapping each other time to time. I think you have reminded me once or twice that the sun is shinning outdoors and what a nice day for a walk.
Excellence is its own reward!
