I chat with Prof_Don, a moderator, all the time and we always argue lolol I'm always bold enough to say "You're arrogant." or "You sound like a real prick right now with all that f***ery." Just ask him :)
I'm not one of those users who's going to come here and kiss the a** of mods. It's just not my style. Plus when people make them feel like they are in a higher position where they deserve utmost respect and kindness, then it reinforces the idea in their minds that they are in a higher position where they deserve kindness and respect they have not earned. In reality, these are just people who were present enough on GAG to get special privileges. I'm not just going to give someone the utmost respect because they are called a 'GAG moderator' lol especially if I've seen them be an ass.
I would like to think that people didn't act differently towards me now I'm a mod. I'm still a human being and just your average GaG user. I'm no different to others and if they want to be honest with me, then they have the right too! I'm not going to report someone for having an opinion and tells me politely! Obviously, if they just insulted me, then I'd report them like any normal user would!
