So there is a certain mod here that I love because they are tough but most likely fair.

Anyway. Have you ever posted stuff you weren't sure whether it's going to get you a warning but then you do it and then again and then again and then again.

Then you start to think hey that mod must be on vacation, looks like I am good to go.

Then you see their name popup and the fear runs through your spine until your butt puckers.

Anyway, mod that shall not be named I love you!



And



Fear you!

Nah, I say what I want and if my account is banned, I’ll just create another one.

Thou that shall not be named is a cool cat.

One that realizes with these BS times we are living in, we should be allowed to express ourselves, within T & C.

Especially, when we speak truths about our freedoms. There is no grey areas — thanks to our founding fathers.

I often have to remind myself that the mods are generally not out to get us. They're just protecting the interests and reputation of the site (try to imagine what it would be like if there were no moderation at all. I don't see a good picture here.)

It's not personal, though it can be vexing sometimes, when our posts get removed.

Lol of course you are correct. Allegedly there was a times that I may or may not have fully understood that.

I've posted things I worried were going to get me spanked, but got applause.

I've only been disappointed with a mod action once, but I wouldn't say it was technically unfair.

I've managed to avoid butt puckers, that's one typo from an involuntary posting break.

First one still. Never had anything to say until I seen Trump supporters being demonized on my favorite site. So I joined up to own some lefties, but not gonna lie I’ve been owned a couple times as well.

I use to be a mod on a small site and it sucks. You have no idea what it is like dealing with people to protect your site.

And I was also that person drunk posting # and didn't really blame them for deleting it after thinking about it.

Just try to stay with in T&C's , post what you feel or know , just don't be a repeat offender or outright bully and you should be fine.

If when in doubt, just run it by a mod. They are people to.

yeah, being a mod can suck majorly a lot of times. but when I'd say it's kind of cool overall.

That being said I don't think I'd ever want to do it again, but I guess it depends on what kind of site it is.

If only that little envelope still lit up...


Meh, I know it isn’t me because during my fifth year of being a mod there was a thread made wanting to know who I was because I didn’t even show up on the member list. Well except they kept adding a space on a copy/paste or auto fill in or something. That was great.

I've posted things that have gotten applause from one Mod and taken down by another.

Usually when I post something I know is wrong it is about .7 seconds after I hit the "Reply" key when I realize that.

In my defense, I really don't have a brain/mouth filter... much less a brain/Message Sent filter.

But in retrospect, I don't feel that I've ever really been treated unfairly here by the Mods.

The one the OP was probably talking about used to give me an anxiety attack when I saw THAT name in my inbox.

That Mod turned out to be really cool on a personal level.

Also, you have to remember (paraphrasing another Mod here) it's not like they are trying to herd cats.

They are trying to juggle cats.

On crack.

And on fire.

So I have a certain empathy for them now.

After all, they have to deal with me on a daily basis...

I posted a GIF that was really disgusting on accident .

I found that I fear my conscience and what the good people here think more than any mod.
