Toujours summed it up pretty well.

That's precisely correct. Think about what the word 'moderator' means. It doesn't mean 'caretaker,' 'babysitter,' or 'mother,' and in short it also doesn't mean that the people that fall under the category of a Moderator should have to always play nice with members. Of course, there are times when being able to balance your own self-respect, maturity as well as attitude and current state-of-mind come into play and acting rudely toward members is unacceptable, but for the most part Moderators are hired to
a specific section (keep it clean of spam/flame etc) That should be the end of it; nothing more, nothing less.
I will respect your opinion that a Moderator should never be judgmental or discourteous toward a member, but ideally it's not their primary goal not to be any of those things - it's just a respectable quality.
