What is a Moderator? and what is their purpose here /
I don't think I'd want to be a moderator cause I would probably get kicked out after a couple of days for having a difference of opinion then the other mods. For example - I would ban all questions attacking religion. I would ban all questions that appear to be racist. I would ban all questions attacking muslims. I would ban all girls who talk about slutty behaviour. I would ban all people who attack people for being more righteous then them and I would ban all people who are anti-religious, anti-charity, anti-chastity, anti-humility or unwilling to acknowledge they are wrong. I would also ban some of the other mods. I blocked one who seemed completely repulsive to me and have no idea how she made it as a mod.
I wouldn't particularly mind being a mod, but I think I need to work on getting a higher level on here first. I don't usually say super controversial opinions and I try to be respectful if I do... so I doubt my behavior would change much, mod or not. If I was asked to do it, sure I would, but I'm not going to go out of my way to become one.
i'm a mod now and i love it, and i'd not throw my badge away. i'm a part of GAG's "staff" basically and this is sth i definetely love. since i've got lots of free time this will help me fulfil my mod-duties much more than users who have a lack of free-time. after all trolls and users who post mean/ofensive or unhelpful opinions r spread all-around GAG and someone needs to be on da look-out to cut 'em-off... it's a honor to have such a position.
i cannot understand those users who'd turn down such a position... it's always a honor to be offered a position as mod... and u turn it down? huh... y?
