It is my opinion and my opinion ONLY that we lost e-Sangha for those reasons. The site going down due what apeared to be injection attack-related database problems came as no surprise to me.
Besides that, I found the heavy-handed, arbitrary, unfair and at times vindictive moderation practices to be distasteful in the extreme. I would prefer to not see that happen here. If that means keeping former e-sangha moderators off the moderation team, so be it.
And as far as the Tradition Which Shall Not Be Named goes, I couldn't care less. I see the problem as one concerning them and the Gelugs only. I'm a Kagyupa. My allegiance to the Dali Lama lies down the list a ways - after the Karmapa, My Guru and His Guru, in that order respectively. I have not seen or heard anything from those venerables on the subject, one way or the other. What His Holiness chooses to say on the subject is of no interest to me and quite frankly I rather not be bothered by such squabbles.
