To offer a nuance, there are staff members on ERA that are perfectly reasonable people, atleast from my experience. Just like how ERA errornously takes GAF as a whole in their criticism, the opposite is also true. There is proper staff there. Its just that they are only in a position to moderate within limits.
I´m not sure this is actually true. The 2 or 3 mods I thought were "reasonable" are not mods anymore.
