As per: Moderator powers are unchecked. Closing 7/10 programmers-related questions.
I agree whole heartedly. There are a couple moderators of programmers.SE who have gone power mad, deleting important content and leaving off-topic remarks in its place. They close questions that the community is obviously interested in with no regard for that community at all. These individuals are a detriment to the site and need to have their moderator priveleges revoked.
SE is a community run and driven architecture. We are able to vote IN moderators but I've yet to see anything on how to vote OUT a moderator. Surely if there is such a method it should be clarified, and if not it should be created. During the voting procedure there's little to tell people how well a person will moderate and when it becomes clear that they are abusing their powers there should be a method in place for the same community that voted them into office to get rid of them.
How does one begin the process of impeaching a moderator?
It should be noted that there's actually only a couple such moderators. There's always a bad apple in every bunch. I'm not saying the site doesn't need ANY application of moderation, only that certain individuals need to stop, have been asked to stop, and now need to be taken out of office.
Since Mr. CRT wishes names to be named: https://softwareengineering.stackexchange.com/questions/88953/what-kind-of-programmer-can-i-expect-for-near-minimum-wages/89262 <- review the edits made to that post. Perfect example of moderator trolling.
