I have never been a mod of ZD or any other site. It was a different mod that either closed a thread or deleted any posts that were made, not me.
If mods did do that, it was because there were rules being broken and if it was me breaking the rules then I would have been banned, but I wasn't, other people were. This is also not a mean/hostile so I apologize if it comes off that way.
You didn't put a questions mark on your first post, so it came off as a statement, not a question and sorry for snapping it's just I've been trying to deal with this huge problem that some members from ZI seem to have with me and lately it's seemed like everyone is against me.
If by driving members away you mean getting flamed by members of other sites just because they don't like how I theorize, then yes, you would be correct, but I have yet to see any memeber leave ZD for the reason being that they don't like me and if any memeber ever does, that's there problem, but like I said, I haven't noticed anyone leaving ZD.
