hot take, administrators, moderators
Just because you have "years of experience" or you administer or help moderate a big group or community, doesn't make you a good role model.
I've seen and personally met/talked with plenty of moderators and administrators that abuse their power, are there for the clout, create their own cult-like followings, and are generally abusive and toxic. Also, news flash - if they feel the need to constantly advertise their experience, they're not a good admin/mod. They're a power hungry or overly zealous admin/mod that wants to use their prior experience as a tool to trap you into trusting them.

Final note, if they refuse to make a good CoC or ToS, they don't care about you or your experience. They care more about their ideals and whether or not they can continue to be buddy buddy with their friends than they do anyone else's experiences, and you shouldn't trust them.
