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.

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 unpleasant individual who uses his or her power to silence those he or she does not agree with. Apparently anything can get you modded by them. Including this example below.
Heck, I've taken my pokemon hacking to a new level. I'm running pokemon mills. There's thousands shoved in cages in a huge warehouse inside of a tardis-like computer. It's hard running a giant scamming job in between all the murders/robberies/puppy-killing I do. But man, do I try!

Man GameFAQs Moderators are douchebags.

Someone with no sense of humor who will ban you for posting a link to this page in your signature.
This account has been banned from posting any further messages on GameFAQs. Bans are only given out by the site administrator, and only for severe and/or repeated TOS violations. This ban is permanent; this account can no longer be used.

You have been banned from this site. Because I'm a Gamefaqs Moderator and therefore, automatically, a fag.

The internet police force on the popular gaming website gamefaqs.com. The moderating staff is made up entirely of volunteer, unpaid members of the larger GameFAQs community, yet most of these volunteers treat their positions as if they're part of an actual cyber police force. The moderators are obsessed with flaunting their power whenever possible, dishing out a number of moderations on average that most forums don't even come close to approaching. GameFAQs moderators are also obsessed with maintaining their secrecy for whatever reason, hiding behind a system that allows them to give out moderations anonymously, so that they don't have to deal with disgruntled users. Overall, this gives the entire forum a "Big Brother Is Watching" vibe and results in mutual distrust between the regular users and the moderators, who act more like corrupt police officers than volunteer members of a message board community.
GameFAQs moderators are amongst some of the most biased, powerhungry and corrupt moderating staffs on the entire internet. Whereas many moderating staffs try to maintain healthy relations between them and their userbase, GameFAQs moderators seem more concerned with being an online dictatorship.

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.

Bunch of nerds who have had their heads dunked into so many toilet bowls in their lives that they lost count.

Prime targets for locker-shovings and wedgies when in grade school, high school and college.

Take out their pent up rage by having a small amount of authority to delete children's messages on an internet forum. They have spent almost their entire lives on GameFAQs and have submitted applications to become moderators for years just to have this small feeling of power.

Mostly late 20-something year olds or 30-something year olds who control the flow of information on a website designed for children. Still watch anime and live in their mom's basement.

Basically these are Toys R Us kids who never grew up. Pathetic excuses for human beings and social rejects. Failures at real life who get a catharsis through being online dictators. Follow no rules other than the ones they make up on the spot for banning you. Official Site Rules are basically just put up as a joke and are not even worth reading.

Virgins for life or have some sort of ugly ass companion who they have painfully awkward sex with once in a while.

Wastes of oxygen.
The GameFAQs moderator went and banned some guy's account because he said he wasn't a fan of some stupid anime show that he liked.
