How to prevent a mod from attacking is very complicated

I think most mods here are experimental A.I being run in Springer's office.

Mods aren't allowed to moderate the threads they participate in so they are no different from anyone else. Just keep this in mind and reply to them the same way you reply to anyone else that's what I do.

So you created a thread all your own and everything is going as planned until .....duh,duh,dah. A "mod" joins the discussion.
At this point most people will be on their best behaviour but if you don't intervene it could lead to the mod commandeering your thread.
How to prevent a mod from attacking is very complicated.
Stroke the mod and compliment them.
The best defences are creating a boring thread, (just like this thread), or ignoring the mod.
The last thing you want to do is anger a mod!!!! When they are angry mods are reported to act irrationally and lash out at unsuspecting victims.
P.S. - Don't feed the mods!
