If an elected moderator participates as a principal in a given thread by either asking a question or providing an answer... And then subsequently uses mod powers in the same thread to either delete, modify, or otherwise obstruct valid information contributed by others...
Is it a conflict-of-interests? Or is it OK? Should they ask another moderator to perform the intervention?
I'm not talking about incidents of Chinese spam or transparently obscene material where intervention would be unquestioned. These types of things are outside the scope of this question.
Question: what can a moderator do to avoid the perception that they have engaged in a way that raises the ugly spectre that they have intervened to their own benefit or to the benefit of their buddies?
Of course a TSE member can flag, but the flag can be anonymously declined by the same moderator who benefited. Dilemma... Hence META to gauge community response.
