I don't want to speak for Gabi (or anyone else for that matter) but I took it that she was being tongue in cheek with that. Perhaps that might not have come across for everyone?

As far as what Dave said, that response to bans does actually come up more often than you'd think. Is it really that toxic? Can you shed some light on how it's toxic? The response to moderation is rarely positive. Keeping one's distance isn't received all that well, and posting as regular members in addition to posting as mods gets people's hackles up. I'd argue that one kind of jokey post from a mod is less toxic than a few people ganging up on said mod and being pretty rude and toxic themselves. Seems like all the pots are calling the kettle black.
