I suspect the numbered mod names were meant to avoid any sense of cliques, but for me personally it ends up feeling like a voice from above is announcing to us how it will be - somewhat 1984-ish, rather than members of the community who are making decisions and rulings.

I'm not sure this makes total sense as I don't know exactly how to explain how having threads locked/deleted/etc. by a number instead of a person makes it feel different. Anyone else feel the same?
