Let's start with a basic description of the GameFAQs Message Boards and the moderators. The mods are basically like a certain group in history that tried to kill anyone that they did not like. I will put these guys into simple catergories for easier reading.
Users - These guys could either be the civilians that snitch on people in hiding for cash(which, in this case, is karma)or these guys could be the short-lived rebellion. Within the rebellion group, we have the sub-catergories. We've got the defensive ones that don't do anything unless they are provoked into doing so and then you've got the offensive guys, who will try to strike first. The defensive guys are basically the users that usually do good enough to not get any moderations, but when they get a moderation for something silly, that's when they cuss out people, thus resulting in more heat from the mods. The offensive guys, are the guys that intentionally get themselves modded, as a symbol of defiance. Most of these guys are the trolls(who are explained later) and the account suiciders. These guys, ironically, are the only reason to even step near the message boards. They are so entertaining, that even the suckiest troll/account suicide topics are hilarious in some way.
Then you've got the snitches. The guys that are the "I never do anything wrong!" type of guys. They mark messages here and there, thinking that they are doing anything of significance. These guys have hopes of becoming moderators(as weird as that may sound) and they believe that by getting on a mod's good side, they will eventually be raised up to moderator level. One benefit that these guys have is that they DO get on a mod's good side by doing this, and therefore, are banned less than the regular users. By regular users, I basically mean people who post a "Help Me!" topic once every two weeks.
Mods - "The Green Police" as they call it. These guys are responsible for everything, yet nothing. What I mean is that they do all the work, but truthfully, they are not the masterminds behind it. These guys are the most unforgiving bastards you will ever see, and I'm including real-life, too. If these guys don't agree with your opinion, your post is considered trolling. One user has even gotten warned because his sig separator wasn't the default GameFaqs one. If these guys don't understand how your topic is on-topic, they'll simply mark it as "Off-Topic." Posting a telephone number for a phone company is considered harassment. These guys can ban you for ANYTHING. They will even go as far as to create a temporary rule that you 'coincidentally' broke at the same moment this rule was created. Topics with pornography in it last about half an hour, but anything mentioning how abusive the mods are gets deleted within the first 5 seconds of its lifespan. Remember, there is nothing in the rules that says you can't have an opinion against moderators. It IS against the rules to post porn, and as a matter of fact, it is one of the worst weapons to be used by account suiciders. Apparently, talking about how corrupted the mods are is considered "Trolling: Inciting Other Users to Post With Flames." It seems that everytime one of these topics come up, the only users offended by it are the mods themselves. When you try to contest a moderation, the response you get most of the time will be "It was a ToS violation" with no further explanation. Now, if you have a mod that's experiencing a period, that's another story. Banned right away.
Adminstrators - Finally, we've got the Nazi leader himself(or themselves, in this case). They do nothing but sit on their fat asses waiting for a mod to give them a user's contest. These guys are rarely known for any direct engaging, and are more strategic. They give out orders to the mods, which is basically a one liner that says "Eliminate them all." The mods give them a contest, and because Mod Joey and Admin Frank are pals, Frank takes Joey word for it. They don't read the responses. This makes the contest system absolutely worthless. And the message it has above the box where you post your contest, "However, because two mods agreed that it was a moderation, you most likely won't get it restored."After you contest it for the admin, and he disagrees with you (or disregards the fact that you even typed anything) there's no more hope left. You're finished, and you can't do another contest for....no not 3 days, no not a week, no, not even a month, but THREE MONTHS. It's a pretty stupid penalty for having a different viewpoint from the admin, who grinds on the mod's dicks anyway. At this point, you should just say 'Fuck GameFaqs' and the leave the site. Of course, there's one group of people that will make you stay.
Trolls - Ironically, it's these guys that keep you on the website. These are the guys that generally push people away from GameFaqs, but these guys also rope in much more than the amount that they made leave. These guys are clever, funny, and believe it or not, intelligent(for the most part). These guys are not aligned with either the users or moderators. These are just crazy guys that unintentionally piss of the mods and all of GameFaq's moderators. Their hilariousness will keep you coming back to GameFaqs. These guys are the general target of the GameFaq's staff.
The Mods and the GameFAQs Message Boards suck balls!!!
