A call for a rant...from the MODS

Rants about the mods or against the mods have been standard ATS fare for as long as I've been here at least, and no doubt longer. But I've never seen the opposite type of rant: one in which the mods "turn the table" and get a chance to let off steam about what must be a fairly stressful and mostly thankless task.

Personally, I've never had any negative experiences with the ATS mods. They have always responded fairly and rapidly and treated me well when I have had occasion to call upon them (which has not been often). And the few times I've had my knuckles rapped, I suppose I deserved it. So I have no complaints. But I bet the mods themselves have complaints, which is why I started this thread.

Ok mods, here's you chance to let it all hang out. What bothers you about dealing with us peons? What makes the steam pour from out your ears? What do you wish you could scream at us? I'm just curious, and I am sure you have some amusing rant-ish tales to tell. Go ahead, gripe at will - I can't speak for others, but I'm listening anyway. Let us know. Obviously you can't use real names, but if the T&C permit, by all means let the bile flow. And if this thread is somehow against the T&C for mods, I'll understand if it has to die a quiet death. But if this idea is acceptable, I'm all ears.

Might be counter productive for the mods to let us know what actions get under their skin.

Some people might just use that against them...constantly : )

Peace

What sort of magick is this?

Are you confused or disillusioned? I cannot fathom the incomprehensibility of this request, surely you seek to gain an upper hand, by requesting this divulgment?!

Are you a sinister secret sadist?

You glow yellow in darkness, and yet appear as normal when peered apon.

Your quirks are foreign and illuminating, as I sit here in suspenseful ponderance.....

O.o

Or in other words... ARE YOU MAD????

Well, no more than the next guy, I suppose.

"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.

"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."

"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.

"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."

I know I would!

I just recently discovered I could say asshole on this site and I'm dying to use that too.



I'm joking but I know some people will still get pissed off and that's okay. I just don't care n-e-more.

Cats.

Mods don't rant because mods don't get upset.

Mods don't get upset because we don't have emotions. We can't because, if we did, we'd be bothered by all the fan mail calling us nazis, government shills, republicans, democrats, cia agents of doom, psyops specialists, pro-alien, anti-alien, etc.

There are no mod rants because mods are desensitized.

Nef's hate of cats. Being that I am the cat elder god and all. Seriously, all cats come un to me with excitement and joy to bask in my praises. Well except for the atheist cats. Since they don't believe in me they go to doggy heaven since I didn't bother with a kitty hell. What can I say, I was napping when it was time to make one.

Sigh.


There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple. English muffins were not invented in England or French fries in France. Sweetmeats are candies, while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat. We take English for granted. But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square, and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.

And why is it that writers write, but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce, and hammers don't ham? If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of booth beeth? One goose, 2 geese. So, one moose, 2 meese? One index, two indices? Is cheese the plural of choose?

If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat?

In what language do people recite at a play, and play at a recital?

Ship by truck, and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run and feet that smell? Park on driveways and drive on parkways? How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites? How can the weather be hot as hell one day and cold as hell another?

When a house burns up, it burns down. You fill in a form by filling it out, and an alarm clock goes off by going on.

When the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible. And why, when I wind up my watch, I start it, but when I wind up this essay, I end it.

Mods are great, have never had a problem with them, it is a thankless job, I know as I am a Mod on another board.

The thing that bothers me are new members who come in and rant and tell stafff how they should run this board, sure they have heard it all and considered it all.

This is a well run machine in my opinion.

I hate that semporfortis brings all those damn donuts to the office and studio...hows a girl to stay in shape with that crap around??













oh oh oh you mean a rant against members?


hmmmmm....yall are such perfect angels, I cant think of anything......hmmmmmmm.......

ok ok....

I really dislike (hate is so strong) when members feel that staff are not allowed to have and voice an opinion here, especially a differing one. If you do not agree with my opinion, that is fine! However, don't get all angry if it is different than yours and tell me not to post it! Moderators are People too!

I really hate when I'm wearing lace up boots. Then there is a small pebble in my shoe that is discovered one minute later. Then I have to unlace everything to remove said pebble. Then the pebble must be found. Removal of said detected pebble. Then go through the rigamarole of putting boot back on. Only to realize I forgot to lace one eyelet. Laces must be undone. Then lace up properly.

That I can't argue with but if my understanding of the Brit definition of "bits" is right, wouldn't that be against the T&C?
