    Re: Thank the moderators day

    I'm not thanking anybody, even though they deserve it, until my Willow bunny killer threads are reopened.

    And tacos. I want free tacos.

    Sort of. You can also become a mod via The Quickening. We don't like to talk about that, though. Unpleasant.

    Re: Thank the moderators day

    I would like to personally thank all of you who need moderating. Without you, my life is barren and meaningless. It would force me to actually work during the day and no one wants that.

    I performed the Heimlich maneuver on Keep when he tried to prove that he could fit an entire zucchini in his mouth.
    Apparently lying is a critical moderating skill...

    I'm just taking notes. Please continue.

    Hang around that Fitzy guy less. We all know he's shifty.

    Initially, it helped to be the older sister of the site creator. Then being "site mom" also helped.

    He'd be my deputy. He's one of the brightest young minds in the moderating biz.

    Thanks to all the mods. Today begs the question...has a mod ever been banned?

    So seriously, you mods make, what, $140k/year for your moderating services? As much as I want to be a moderator for the dignity and power, I'm really just wanting some of that sweet mod money.

    Hmm - I don't think so? We've had some people step down, and others who weren't good fits, or any other number of situations, but I don't think anyone has been banned. I think you stepped down when we re-upped about... seven years ago, right?

    Not anymore, but it definitely helped when there were about 8 people on the site!
