Your best hope to have Kirk's posts moved would have been to ask nicely. You instead saw yourself as entitled to such a service.
I do not see myself as entitled. You're engaging in mindreading.
You claim that one of your responsibilities is to keep a thread from getting hijacked. It doesn't say that one has to ask you "nicely".
You seem to like to add a lot of layers to the simple tasks of unbiased moderating, which includes acknowledging that "some farm animals are more equal than others". Is Kirk one of those more equal farm animals? How do we get a list of these entitled farm animals? Keep in mind that it is this context by which I am engaging Kirk until you weigh in on whether or not he's a farm animal entitled to "more equality" than others. Kirk is a very nice person, when he is hijacking a thread.
