    The attacks should be ignored.

    Mods needn't respond in a Town Hall, they can go off, discuss, and make announcements later.

    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    I would expect that the one who trolled or otherwise instigated the back and forth, the talking about members, to receive the heavier penalty. I would also expect members' history of such behavior to be considered. At least, moderation, as far back as I can remember, has done that.

    It's not being stopped.

    Perhaps that's another suggestion for improvement, let the mods run Town Halls.

    It isn't like they are guarding the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. They hardly do anything, and when they do, they generally $#@! it up.

    Moderators should respond in town hall meetings. Generally the purpose of a town hall meeting is to get the authorities to respond to questions or concerns in a public setting.
