1. Yes there is a private administration forum with a number of threads on administrative matters.
2. The behaviour of members is naturally discussed in the admin forum as moderating member behaviour is one of the administrative duties.
3. Yes.
4. A)Its the large amounts of psychotropic drugs and B) if the forum is out of control then there will be a lot less productive debate on the topic that the forum is specifically intended to be about, so basically Percy would just be wasting his money to indulge a bunch of out of control people by providing a venue to say whatever they like and flame each other.
Those are my own personal answers, the Admins are not of one mind in all things so others may have different responses.

Re: Any Suggestions?
It is hard for me to understand why so many religious topics are admitted”such as "The divinity of Jesus"”that have nothing at all to do with evolution v. creationism; yet a perfectly good and relevant topic in science can be rejected on the opinionated whim of a self-promoting Admin.
Because the science forums are held to stricter standards than the faith forums. If you have an example of what you consider a good and relevant topic unfairly dismissed there are at least two suitable threads to bring the matter up in , General Discussion Of Moderation Procedures 13.0 and Topic Proposal Issues.
TTFN,
AW

Re: Any Suggestions?
Because the discussions are meant to be scientific in nature and positions should ideally have evidentiary support. These are not considered primary concerns in many of the faith forums. Don't ask me why, I don't frequent the faith forums generally either as a member or as an admin.
One reason might be that if the same rigorous standards were applied to the faith forums then a number of the creationist members excluded from the science forums for failing to support their arguments might similarly be excluded from the faith forums. I'm not sure if we currently have any such members active, but there have been a number over the last few years.
The existence of this 'double standard' has been gone over ad nauseam in many threads both public and private. It still seems to be the best compromise which has been proposed.
TTFN,
WK
