Thank you very much for your feedback.
Yes, I thought about that forum, but I was not sure if this fits the idea of building a forum, because the forum I am experiencing the problem on is built and certainly growing and probably won't stop growing.
I am being circumvent because I sincerely don't want to come across as this being into a rant. I sincerely hope that company over there with the strange policy will eventually see the light.
My view is having no moderation policy and having secret moderators and showing no sort of substantive information on penalties and appealing said penalties or providing information on time frames of penalties, and all those policies that I had come to take for granted in a forum community -- the discovery of all those being absent still has me in a sort of state of shock, to be honest. I've been a member of that community over there for about 7 years and had not known how bad the situation was.
Now the point about applicable laws is something I would like to ask about. What sort of applicable laws would you be thinking of? If you feel we are able to ask and answer such a question here.
I was asking them to inform the community members over there to at least tell us who of their groups of moderators can see the general membership IP addresses.
If an employee of that company can see our IP address I think we can assume that the employees have to follow company guidelines set out in agreements they sign. But the secret moderators are not company employees and I don't know what safeguards are in any law to protect us from possible abuse from a non-employee at that place.
EDIT of a spelling mistake.
