I don't and that's precisely why a majority of my answers are anonymous. For one, you can tell that some of these people have very questionable thought processes based on some of the answers they give. Two, a former mod had deleted her account and when she came back, she acknowledged that if GAG mods don't like you, they'll continuously hide your posts in an effort to get your account suspended. Three, I've watched them let their little internet friends get away with violating the rules and making sure they report posts their friend has a problem with but leave their friend's antagonistic posts up. I also remember hearing something about GAG mods who targeted a specific user either until her account was banned or until she left. It was something I had skimmed across on a post where an anonymous user was being accused of being someone then the asker was basically bragging about how she, other mods, and maybe some users had obsessively stalked her posts to report anything that even moderately violated the guidelines, hoping to get her account deleted.
Do you think GAG mods are trustworthy?

You are spot on about their little friends. They can curse you off insult you, and never have their posts removed. I have reported posts months ago that were never taken down, but ofcourse my entire side of the conversation is removed. In fact some of them get promoted to mods or editors of the month. Not saying all are like this, but as everything is done in secret, it's impossible to tell who is letting people get away with this. I feel your pain. Just an FYI you upvoted one of their favorite female pets.4

I can tell you right now that I remove just as many of the posts from people that I'm cool with as I do from people that I'm not. I don't understand why people think mods have all this power. We literally send posts up to admins for review. That's it. Are there mods that abuse that? Sure. But it only lasts so long because if it doesn't break any rules then the adminis will reinstate it.11
