Why don't warnings/cards give you the name of the mods?

Well?
some of the warning/cards are absolutely ridiculous and quite frankly stupid.

Clearly a couple of mods may have an agenda so users deserve the right to know if they are being singled out.

The secret police wouldn't be secret if you knew who they were.

Also one of the ex mods is a self proclaimed fascist. Tells you about the sort of company they enjoy :ninja:

We don't give you the mods' name because we know, from experience, that this would result in some individuals choosing to target a mod for doing their job.

All warning cards are given within a strict framework, but if you want to question one then the place to do so is AAM http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=266

On another forum I go to, when a user breaks a rule, the mod edits the post and gives a public reason why the post was rule breaking, along with the name.

Not sure if TSR should adopt it tbh, seeing as the forum in question doesn't even have a proper "Ask a Moderator" section.

Because then the mods won't be able to do their nasty work without repercussion.

If you have a problem with a card that you've received, post in Ask A Moderator and the moderator that gave you the warning will be able to answer your questions on that.

The reason it appears as "TSR Moderator" is so that we don't receive a barrage of privately targeted abuse for every card that we give, directly aimed at our PM inbox, which is not an acceptable environment for us to work in. Going through AAM ensures accountability, along with providing us with a safer environment to privately engage with users in. This is the same reason why mods don't deal with moderation queries by PM. :fyi:

This happens sometimes on TSR as you see some posts are last edited by a mod and it has a description like 'swear filter avoidance' or 'removing insults' as a reason for its edit.

Believe me, tehforum, if we were able to do half the evil things you relentlessly (and fallaciously) accuse us of, you'd have been permabanned months ago. :laugh:

From experience modding elsewhere, where mod names aren't hidden, they can lead to many many PM's sent consisting nothing more than abuse at you for telling them off So I can understand why it's hidden here.

Can't say I blame them for not disclosing the name of the mod, some of the trolls on this site are lunatics and can be seriously unpleasant and its inevitable that mods would get loads abuse.

Even if the mods did receive abuse, all they would have to do is simply ban them...

Which would then increase the number of bans being dished out. Not sure how that can be a good thing.
