I am actively working on the modbot. I have been testing it with several people on the server over the last few days. Many users have seen it. In fact, I did a "dry run" on the CAP server just last night. I still have more work to do before it will be available on a regular basis. When it is done, I think it will solve many of the issues being discussed in this thread.
For those of you that do not know what the modbot will do -- please don't make assumptions and post your worries, fears, and complaints about it here. I'm not going to post all the details now. Just wait until it is done, and we'll go from there.
