Let me vent my opinion.
No one has ever claimed they are more important. Bringing importance of a person into this is like bringing religion into politics. They are too different, and joining them only causes problems.
This is an argument about authority and respect.
No a 35 year old admin is not more important than a 10 year old newbie. But they have more authority, which means what they say matters more, and has to be listened to. It also means they have earned more respect, which means people take their opinions more seriously than some 10 year old kid yelling, "THATS UNFIAR! HE BNNED ME CUZ HE WS BUTTHRT!"
It is clear that certain people have more Authority and Respect over others, and this is needed. Little children complaining that they cant do whatever they want, and that they want to have as much power as the staff is essentially suggesting a form of communism on this site. Which if you look at Russia's past, with a large population, frankly: it doesn't work.
Im not going to go into detail about that, as many probably do not understand it. However, what I will leave you with is that mods are chosen for a reason. They have more authority, which means that you HAVE to listen to them. This is a website, not a democracy. Their word is law, whether you like it or not. They also have more respect, as they have earned it, and if you show them the respect they deserve, 90% of the time good will come of it. If you get your way with one thing, then more and more people will want to get their way, and eventually there wouldnt be any mods at all.
Almost every one of these rants I see (with the exception of some) are by little kids who are upset that they didn't get everything they want. Grow up. Yes. No one is more important than another, but they DO have more authority, and if you want to stay here, frankly, you just have to accept their opinion. You can't walk up to the president with a gun and say that he isn't more important than you so he can't stop you.
