I myself have left groups because the moderator seemed like Nero far too often.  There was also a moderator who wanted all the praise but did not want to do any of the work.  She subscribed to the idea of “Work smart”  Get others to do all of the work. Yes, my finger was sliding over to the delete key if there is a thread I’m not interested in, as with the topic that has raised the comments about lack of moderation.

And I will say, "Amen to that!!," and have, including on groups I moderate.

Moderators follow the philosophy of the group owner(s), and on lightly moderated groups we're not playground monitors. gives the end user exquisite levels of control over the traffic they receive from any group, up through topic preview, which allows you to pick and choose only those topics you wish to continue to see once you've seen the first message.

I have posted the instructions, Controlling the Messages You Receive via E-Mail from (docx), on every group on which I participate.  It is absolutely up to end users to avail themselves of the controls they can exercise and if they will not do that, or don't like how the group owner(s) and their staff administer a group, can unsubscribe or go to the no mail option and read via the web interface.
