MKR's moderation policies

"Besides, one problem is that at least Preethi and Frank have been censored here while MKR has all the time said that this list is unmoderated. If the reasons for censoring were that the messages were too personal, okay, but let us not talk about an unmoderated list then."
If so, we have to hear from MKR what his policies are in moderating this list. We heard from Eldon a quite detailed explanation about how he guided and monitored new people till they got the hang of it.
So, MKR, please enlighten us about your policies and/or principles for moderating this group.
(And please be timely in answering, even only to indicate that you will answer.)

My answer to Daniel's question is: I think we have gotten some answers from MKR. That is good. Some suspicions against him were misunderstandings.
I wouldn't like to beat our new moderator and hard worker more (he has had hard times lately), but I have to, because he has so loud required transparency from the TS Sections.
What still worries me is that MKR acts like a politician, who is afraid to get caught from a lie. My impression is that he doesn't answer questions properly, but is beating around the bush. For instance: he has not said if he deleted those posts or not. What he says is that the messages are safe elsewhere and that it is possible for posters to delete their messages.
This is a matter of trust and principle. If he has made a mistake, I think he should admit it, and we would be happy. MKR's own advise to Tiger Woods on this list was that Tiger should have acknowledges his sins immediately, because the situation got worse due to silence. Isn't there a similar situation in here?
Besides, one problem is that at least Preethi and Frank have been censored here while MKR has all the time said that this list is unmoderated. If the reasons for censoring were that the messages were too personal, okay, but let us not talk about an unmoderated list then.
