Hi. I realise I'm coming to this discussing really late but there were a couple things I had to comment on:

I think it would help krkdnose if he/she trusted the MODs and inquired matters with grace. It's only fair for all, especially when answers are so wanted.
Trust is a tricky issue. It doesn't mean turning off your brain and making yourself vulnerable--or what you perceive as vulnerable, which is pretty much the same thing--and giving total responsibility for your safety over to someone else. That's what a lot of people use it to mean, but that's just foolishness. Real trust is knowing what you can honestly expect from a person in a given situation, and it's learned over time.
I have no idea what the original issue is, but it sounds to me like something about it has caused krkdnose some serious confusion/anger that isn't being addressed. I agree that the thing to do would be ask for explanation, trying as much as possible to hold off on judgement and accusation, but when you're in a triggery state and already confused, that's a really hard thing to do. And, well, it hasn't seemed to me that this thread is showing krkdnose much compassion.
Personally I think the GB mods are great and this is the best board I've ever participated in--it's a real community. I had a post deleted once and the mod e-mailed me to explain, and I was all, "Oh, of course." So that's my stance.
PS--I loved the new HArry Potter movie! it's made me start reading all the books again. I thought the new Dumbledore was WAY better than Richard Harris and this was the best one yet. But I'm sad to see that they're using yet ANOTHER director for Goblet of Fire...hope he's as good.
