A species that carries two varieties:

Variety 1-A sincerely respectable and competent person who enforces reasonable rules and gives fair punishments. Unfortunately, is a incredibly rare breed.

Variety 2-A cranky person who takes things too seriously, mods people for saying things they don't like or agree with (regardless of the rules), and will instinctively play the rule lawyer game when called out on it. Will also frequently single out sole examples of the perceived rule breaking while blowing off other posters doing equal or worse.
A Variety 2 Gamefaqs Moderator in action:

"Topic deleted by mod due to being off topic"

Poster-But my topic involved various characters from the game and discussed them. And there are a crapload of topics that are just as much off topic such as crappy VS threads and yapping about your retarded fetishes threads.

Mod-Don't care. Don't like your thread. I like reading posters go on about how Sonic's furry power beats Mario, repeat unfunny memes, and go on about what underage cartoon characters they'd like to bone.


And here's another example:

Poster-"Posts his opinion on something that others don't agree with"

Mod-"Deletes post for trolling"

Poster-The Hell? I didn't post that to annoy other users or incite some flamewar. I was just posting my opinion.

And another example:

Poster: "Posts in topic that's now about a game where a black guy goes around killing white people by asking if the game will have fried chicken"

Mod: "Uses mod powers for some reason even though the post wasn't any more offensive than others in the topic that weren't modded whatsover."

Poster:''Is suspended, and doesn't get the chance to contest the moderation"

These fine people that dedicate their spare time and effort, tirelessly deleting messages that wouldn't offend a two year old.
Irratable, cranky, constantly afflicted with the condition known as sand in your vagina-itis, they seek to do nothing more and nothing less than ruining jokes, deleting stories, and violating little children with large phallic objects.

How do you become a GameFAQs moderator?
Well, here's what you need:
1. An account older than two years with a clean moderation record. Basically, you must have an account where you basically post "hi" once a month for two years.

2. A unending desire to narc on strangers.

3. Unending loyalty to a flawed, inherently racist code of laws. Read the rules. The moderators can delete any message for any reason whatsoever. It's true. You can read ever rule and follow them to the letter, but you'll still get moderated.

4. You must be a person that derives joy from ruining the fun of others. This is probably the most important rule.

5. A total of twelve smirf or similar services t0 CjayC, owner and sell-out-er of GameFAQs. Also note that you must forever refer to him as Master, and must wear a gimp mask to look especially imposing.

"Dude, I just got modded for asking a simple question!"
"What'd you ask?"

Moderator: Wow. This is fun. Maybe I should go murder some orphans and violate their corpses. Wait, no. That's what we did yesterday.

Emissaries of the worst gaming site this side of Gamespot and servitors to the infernal jag CJayC.
Think Ring Wraiths only meaner, nerdier, with less professionalism and (despite a Ring Wraith being dead and evil with no body) less chance of getting laid....and less fashion sense.

Known for extreme corruption. Using the term moderator is akin to a slap in the face of anyone whose actually cared about the site they moderate.

Traits include:
1. Selective moderating.
2. Back-assward logic.
3. Blatant bias.
4. Extreme corruption.
5. Laziness.
6. Cowardice.
7. Power mongering.
8. Overall dickish-ness. (Thank you Jon Stewart)
A Gamefaqs Moderator helled me for using the term "bichin" to describe Captain Planet's mullet under "censor bypass" rules.
I figured since it mearly contains the word blocked but presents none of the offensive nature (Bart Simpson used it) and has never been considered a curse word, I'd be fine. I've always minded the Censor system. This was bullshit.

Meanwhile a nearby thread spent several pages calling homosexuals "abominations". Though the thread "why do the moderators allow so much trolling?" was quickly deleted. The trolling continued btw....

Another user:
"I can't believe I was modded for telling this troll off but the troll went unpunished! God the mods are corrupt."

My thread under petitions/suggestions was deleted:
Title: Petition: Eliminate Moderator Anonymity
Reason: Off topic posting.

- A dumbass that thinks he is god and then suspends you for you being an individual.

- A low-life, piece of crap of a human being.
- I hate all the GameFAQs Moderators.

- "He's such a GameFAQs Moderator..."

Impotent idiots who don't even know how to run GameFAQs. Heck even a monkey can run a better site than them. You can compare them to a country that is run by a dictator. There are actually smart moderators, but most moderators are just corrupt and ignorant.
I got modded for telling about an experience i had by a stupid GameFAQs moderator.
by ReDaZnDraGoN March 13, 2005
1. The person in charge of repeatedly clicking the "ban" button.
2. The same person when he's in a good mood, so that he presses the "warn" button once for every 9 bannings.
2. The person in charge of repeatedly clicking the "uphold moderation" button.

The Gamefaqs moderators are sons of bitches who have nothing better to do than fuck CJayC,and ban a 7 year old for saying lolipop. They are nerds who have no real life, but think that Gamefaqs is their life. They are corrupt pieces of shit who do not listen to anyone's plees of innocence, and who think that they are top, when they are not.
Moderator1: Hey CJayC, wanna suck my johnny?
CJayC: Why yes, my man ho, I can't wait.
Moderator2: Alert! Alert! Someone is underage by one day!
Moderator1: Quick my gay friends, lets get to the Ban Button to exterminate them.

One of the most corrupt, hated, and incompetent people on the message boards and on the Internet. They sometimes mark and even ban users for the most ludicrous of things; and commonly bend the rules(i.e. adding something to a ToS rule), to suit their needs. It's usually no use contesting a moderation, as you'll probably receive some asinine reply saying that you're somehow wrong in your explanation.
Sensible poster: The stereotype of black men always going to jail is retarded.

*Poster is placed on warned status for supposedly breaking the offensive material rule.*

Before I continue, let me show the offensive material section of the ToS here.

Offensive Material-Users may not transmit or encourage others to transmit material or links to material considered patently offensive in nature. This includes, but is not limited to using vulgar, profane, or sexually explicit language; using race, religion, sexual orientation, culture, ethnicity, handicap, nationality, or gender as a means of insult; using threatening, harassing, defamatory, hate-speech, or libelous language; and posting, requesting, or otherwise sharing material considered pornographic, obscene, graphic, or hate speech.

Let's continue...

Contest: This is in no way offensive to anyone or anything. Using the word "retarded" is not against the rules if it doesn't fit that category.

Corrupt GameFAQs moderator: Using "retarded" to negatively describe anyone or anything (including anyone within or outside of GameFAQs, inanimate objects, or even something intangible) in any way, shape, or form is considered a severe ToS violation.

If you haven't noticed, the moderator here added the "intangible" crap to the rule; something that wasn't there. Anyone with a brain knows that a stereotype is not an object. You've seen the corruption for yourself.
