No, I haven't. I removed a comment of mine by mistake once on the old site because I was using a touch screen and accidentally hit the button. But other than that I've never removed anything of my own. Like TheoryOfAvarice said, we're discouraged from hiding our own posts anyway.
I only ever did this once. After I left the answer, I thought about it and later decided I shouldn't have said what I said (not that I have any clue what it was at this point, this was went I first became a Mod).
As Mods we're discouraged from abusing the ability to remove / hide our own posts.
No, because I wouldn't write it in the first place. Even if I'm really annoyed at a user, I try to not call them names. I've only hidden my own answer once or twice, I think, since I became a mod. That was because I was commenting on the wrong answer, so the comment had nothing to do with the answer. I hid it as "nonsense" haha..
Mods don't have the ability to hide their own posts, but they are moderated just like any other G@Ger.
Also, the reason they were chosen to be Mods is because they are great G@Gers who don't antagonize or offend, who can express themselves clearly and kindly. They've proven themselves to be people who TRULY want to help others (^_^)
Nope. Have you read the FAQs regarding how moderators are being chosen? They've mentioned,"showing your ability to communicate CLEARLY, give sound advice, and offer VALUABLE information." So not any user can become a moderator.
And also I agree with TheoryOfAvarice , Moderators can't abuse their powers. Because the admins can track our success rate of Question/Opinion/comment removals.
