Locking this thread before it gets too out of control. I do not enforce steam rules, only our community rules, but this topic is rife for rule 1 and 2 violations and would rather lock it then have a steam mod ban someone.
As grapplehoeker stated, Tynan has no interest in adding achievements as he feels it conflicts with the conceit of RimWorld and would force people to start playing in certain ways to achievement hunt. Even with the new quest systems, he deliberately made them all optional, you can ignore quests if that's how you want to play RimWorld.

If I recall correctly, it was posted someplace that he wants you to try to break the game with as many mods as possible... so probably not yet. The best way to handle this, is to tell people to provide a mod list order, and the save that broken. It is probably the fastest way to get a bug fixed for him.
The posts I was seeing there for a while were not productive posts, but it's died down anyway.
I am unable to moderate in Steam Workshop pages, sorry. If mods themselves are reported I can review them, but not the discussions in the mods themselves. However I would encourage mod authors to use the RimWorld Community rules for self moderation and not feel like they can't delete people harassing them.
If the community would like to post Steam Discussion specific rules, please let me know. I have seen a lot of reporting of necro posts, for instance, which is not against our rules in general but am open to making this one if there is a good consensus. Also spamming self replies is another rule that may be useful. Let me know what you all think.
As we are now taking a more active approach to moderation here on the Steam Discussion board, here are the RimWorld Community Rules.

Goals: In no particular order:
We want the RimWorld community to be enjoyable, informative, and inviting to as many people as possible, while also supporting respectful disagreement, unpopular views, and edgy content that is posted in good faith.
We want each participant to have the same rights and responsibilities, and to have rules enforced the same way, regardless of identity, connections, or viewpoint.
We want all participants to be able to predict what is allowed and what isn't instead of being subject to penalties based on standards that seem arbitrary, whimsical, or personal.
User responsibility: Participants come from diverse background and have diverse interests and feel...
