Webwork, I have seen you more than any other mod allow very specific words or discussion allowed that would be blocked in other areas of the site because you believe that is the best way to understand the problem or the discussion point , I am sure that makes it more important that you keep carefull eye on that thread for abuse, I understand many of the policies on the forum and would not like to see them relaxed much but sometimes the limitations of only using widgets does not cover the discussion or problem being discussed.
As a recommendation I would like to see two mods for each specific area with one concentrating on helping newbies type questions with a very gentle touch and manner and the other mod concentrating on the much heavier type questions from well informed webmasters,
It could well be that adding an option when OP posts a question for Basic, Advanced or News discussion.
The reason I say two mods is I suspect it is hard for a moderator moving from a very detailed query from a knowledgable webmaster to a real newbie type question without appearing 1. as condescending or 2. not knowledgable.
I can think of a few sections of the site where my question might seem really stupid and I would post as basic , that does not mean I am stupid just had little exposure to that part of the business
