How can we remove someone as a moderator?

In the Middle East section there is a user called "Halawala" who behaves like a dictator. He closes threads that disagree with his political opinions, he deletes posts that criticize religion, he constantly insults people for no reason, and he often refuses to write in English even though half of the people in the Middle East section in this forum are Iranian, Israeli and Turkish and thus do not speak Arabic. He's told people "don't dare criticize Islam" just because they disagreed with the behaviour of a Muslim extremist in Germany.

It's all getting out of hand and I'm just wondering where or who I can go to to have a member removed as a moderator?

AFAIK you have to contact the administrators and present them with evidence that a mod is abusing their power.

Where can I get in touch with administrators? By email, or do they have accounts on SSC?

I tried looking on the "Contact" section on this website but it didn't work for me (something went wrong with it)..
