maybe they want some time to think about or consult on their reply, hassleing moderators makes about as much sense as hassleing cops because you don't like traffic laws, just try to get along, if you're looking for problems, you'll probably get them!!
18 years ago I made one of the most important decisions of my life and entered a local Cambodian Buddhist Temple as a temple boy and, for only 3 weeks, an actual Therevada Buddhist monk. I am not a scholar, great meditator, or authority on Buddhism, but Buddhism is something I love from the Bottom of my heart. It has taught me sobriety, morality, peace, and very importantly that my suffering is optional, and doesn't have to run my life. I hope to give back what little I can to the Buddhist community, sincerely former monk John

You clearly have a problem, or you would not have started this thread. You are being disruptive, which is a hassle for the moderation team.

Check out the Complaints Procedure thread.

Dave has already indicated that it takes time for the moderating/admin team to consider such requests:
daverupa wrote:Different moderators have different moderating tools, hierarchies, and priorities, which makes consistency a troublesome goal at which to aim. If you like, you can PM the moderator to ask them specific questions about the issue, or await commentary here.
Due to time-zone differences between the team, discussion can take some time.

If there is a post that needs to be moderated please use the report button. The moderators are not omniscient.

I've stated the issues calmly and clearly. If members of any description,want to post false statements and accusations based on a clear misunderstanding of the situation,thats entirely up to them.I rest my case on the evidence at hand.

As with public complaints about posts, please do not publicly complain about moderation, as that is disruptive to the forum and is not the appropriate method for resolving such disputes.

Seconded.
Unfortunately, sometimes moderation decisions which require consultation among moderators do take time as a result of time zone differences and the availability of moderators - all of whom have busy lives outside Dhamma Wheel.
Likewise, complaints about moderation decisions are taken very seriously and investigated thoroughly and do take time.
In the interim. I ask that you remain patient.
With metta,
