There is a nice thread at Search Engine Watch Forums that asks Where are all the SEW Moderators? This question is in relation to the moderators not discussing or posting on Google's recent index page drops. I haven't really even covered the topic here, of Google dropping pages from the index and then re-including them and over again. With that specific topic, it is just too wild to say anything concrete.
This leads us to the question, as glengara points out in the thread.
Do Mods necessarily have answers unavailable to the rest of us peasants?
No, moderators, including myself, do not have all the answers. Moderators do not know it all.
It is the discussion in the forums that help everyone, moderators, members and lurkers learn it all.
