Sounds good, except that I introduced the whole banning and privilege abusing into Defcon (in 2011?). First I wasn't able to deal with 3 or so assholes/trolls (on the game servers) because I was to lazy to investigate and react properly. Then I enabled and encouraged half of the Defcon players to use (in that context) violent tools on Defcon players without defining rules. I even had a philosophic concept on that matter to ensure myself on the rightness of collateral victims. When I finally realized that the damage of privilege abuse superseded the initial trolling I allowed it to continue and finally I left because I could not stand it. Abandoning what I initially build with the noble goal of preserving the past.
You think I am a good candidate for forum moderation, I do not.
And I don't understand the matter. Vic and Laika seem to handle it alright, your reasons to distrust them appear negligible to me. I don't think it is required to be a saint to help IVs forum to not fall apart anyway. And if they should turn into assholes, I totally trust this community to handle it as a collective, like we just did (thanks folks).
As I stated before, leave it be for the time being.
