The old members are whats currently killing bitcoin, they identify abuse as the unintended consequences of their actions. Most of them believe that they are holier then thou because they discovered bitcoin 2 months before you did. The community can't grow with the current leaders, they are no better then any politician.
//who moderates the moderators?//
They're lucky that they haven't discovered bitcoin together with you, you could have been their/our great leader.
It's the Admin that moderates the moderators, that's my best guess.
