I'm probably biased in my answer since I was a mod here, but since I gave up my mod powers a bit ago, guess I can give my insight into things, at least in how I approached them.. not trying to speak for other mods here.

It's a balance, not personal attacks - and needs the human touch, otherwise we might as well have crunchybot monitor things like X swears in one post gets an autoban or something. I can say, I've banned people who were buddies who went over the line, and people I'd previously banned became buddies later. I never treated a ban, warning, or post removal as anything but me having to apply the rules.
You did when, a month or 2 ago? (and why? because of not being here so much or something else?)
Yeah if a ban or not explained it would be or create some emotion (why me and not them? or, again?) with time period etc.
Also the human touch gives you a negative and positive handling.

Where as a bot would just take what it gets and send a standard message from what was wrong.
bot vs human = not so friendly or could not take some exceptions, less work and such.

About that, timeframe I think, and for a variety of reasons - partly work has gotten rather busy, but even so, when I had the ability to do something about reports, I felt the responsibility to do something about them (must've been bit by too many of the spiders in my garage, and/or they were radioactive).

Partly to try to post more in the forums and not have the title of mod hanging next to anything I say, because unless it was a post related to moderation, it was always my personal opinion, but it wasn't always taken that way.

Partly to take a break.

Partly for .. well..

I think it's more likely one of two things :
The fact that people change their views over a long period of time.
And it can't be helped that every mod has their own approach and level of patience when dealing with problems.
