Indeed - I absolutely have nothing but time for, and a lot of respect for Mr. Wolf.
On his own, he's absolutely the moderator that's needed, takes time to discuss things both privately and publicly, without talking-down, otherwise belittling, being confrontational-without-reason, or indulging in general dick-wavery.
(At least from my own experience)
Even if one disagrees with the reasons, he's shown that he has thought about what he's trying to achieve and has reasons and moderating positions that are thought through. (Even if one disagrees with them, they're there, and not just ad-hoc'd)
The issue, as you point out, wasn't (and isn't) with him. Which is where the point about consistency comes in.
Apologies for the mini-essay - your point was a good one, and I thought it worth expanding on.
