I see mods often offering very insightful posts within threads, and I watch those posts carefully, because I consider them to be the example that we
all must follow.
I had a most unpleasant exchange with a mod yesterday on a political topic, and I actually felt that he was so rude and snarky that I let fly right
back at him. I did say "I expected better from a mod, but since you say you're just another poster, then....FAIL!"
Really, I felt the guy was rude, and a very poor example for a moderator. All people with power should be a good example. That doesn't mean you
can't post, but the bar is set higher for you.
Let's face it: When you have "Moderator" attached to your avatar, you are no longer really "one of us"....you've gone up in to upper
management, and you can come down and post with us, but you will not be treated the same. Either a bunch of kiss-ups with make it a point to agree
with you and shower you with stars, or they will avoid you so as to not be on your radar.
It's lonely at the top, no?
I do like your posts, Hefficide, and I have never found your posts to be anything but professional. It's when mods go on the attack in pissy little
ways that I am turned off, and can't help but wonder why they are acting that way....because they can and nobody will censor them? Again, super rare
that it happens, but it did happen to me last night, and I was damned mad over it because he was a mod. We cannot forget your position just because
you tell us to.
