When Q arrives, there will be infractions.
I noticed a change in how Q is RP'd since Brandon took over. So I believe BranFlakes is used when community building, PR, positive stuff is posted. And when the hammer needs to fall he brings out Q.
That lets Brandon keep a positive image while enforcing the rules at the same time. Probably lessons learned from the time when crackdown style moderation was all over the Dev Tracker. It was not received well by the community.
