An internet virus.

A very little man, probably the spawn of J. Edgar Hoover with Cromwellian tendencies of stamping out opposing views on internet forums and chat rooms and rewarding sycophants. He's long given up the stakeout, the binoculars and the wire taps in favor of online activities behind the scenes. The more banal the website topic or thread, the crueler his tactics and iron fist becomes. His past is riddled with rejection, inability to hold a job or maintain friendships. And this arena, or "forum" is precisely the drug he needs to fulfill his illusions of grandeur and the taste of power over others.

Avoid him at all costs and find "real" humans to talk to, not avatars on a computer screen.
Guy#1: "I got booted out of that history forum today!"

Guy#2: "Really, why?"

Guy#1: "That moderator got po'd when I corrected him and told him Dumas was French mulatto and not 100% white. He said he'd banish me to internet Siberia if I attempted to challenge him again."

Guy#2: "Wow, that's just plain wrong!"

Some trolls on forums start arguments about every little tiny thing or start lots of controversies by freely offending people left and right,and then the gay faggot mods turn around and ban people for getting defensive over the agressive trolls.

mods are total fags who can't see the truth
Moderators cause almost as many problems as the trolls and hyper spammers do.

Tend to keep and feed trolls as pets.
Get rid of mods and trolls and spammer-trolls (see spam) and you will have a peaceful forum.If you have zero tolerance for trolls and spammer trolls then you wouldn't need mods at all,just a couple of bouncers to ban the obvious idiots.People should be allowed to have opinions and beliefs and express them but if you can't spot a spammer-troll(spam-bot) or an ordinary troll right away then you have no business being a mod and trying to mediate who can say what because then biases creep in and you've done a shitty job.YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE YOU MODS YOU!

A person who keeps peace and joy in all forums. While some mods can be immature and annoying, some of them are nice, mature, helpful and funny, all at the same time. But that's rare.
That moderator is really nice, he never gets mad at noobs who ask weird questions!

A moderator is a person who watched an internet message board system and deletes posts that break the rules, and move threads and such. They often are voically abused by rude teenagers who like to post porn.

Moderators are the strong-hand of the administrators. They are like administrators, but they have limited permissions. There are two types of moderators, global moderators and local moderators. Local moderators are often focused on one or a few categories, global moderators are focused on all of the categories on the forum. Sometimes, with enough activity, all work will be paid off and you may even become an administrator.
Moderators need to be active in order to be promoted to be administrator.
