One could argue that seeing as you are a moderator, you wouldn't see any...

Are the moderators editing conservative posts more so than liberals? Are the moderators fueled by emotions, and do they act upon those emotions with bans, editting, or closures?
As i've said, a moderators personal feelings, be it political, moral or religious shouldn't (and haven't, as far as I have seen) enter in to things - people may feel sore over being moderated however, and I think that this is a contributing factor.
