When a moderator or administrator abuses his (or her but let's be honest, it's usually a guy) powers to rule over other people and suppress their posts. Usually done by websites that promote bad moderation teams eg. GameFAQs.

When mods of a Discord server troll people in a way that is technically not against the rules.
Example 1:
> "Jab just gave me the 'go to ultrakill land' role, now I can't talk except in the #ultrakill channel!"
> "It's legal mod abuse so you can't complain about it."

Example 2:
> "Why do muted users get locked out of the server but can talk in that one channel?"
> "It's so mods and other people can make fun of them, it's legal mod abuse."

Example 3:
> "my nick has been changed to 'short people fucker' what the hell"

"i can't change it either"
> "legal mod abuse moment"
