I don't want to leave this uncommented. Contributing to VirtualBox does
not require any moderator status in the forums. The one thing is
completely independent from the other.

The main reason for removing the moderators group from your account is
that your patches are not official Oracle patches and we don't want users
to mix up things. Discussing things is nice but it means much more work
for the others if users start to use half-baked patches and run into
problems. Remember when I helped you to reproduce the problems you
reported a few days ago and it turned out it was one of your local change.

Thanks for your understanding,
