What the people at gametalk live for. Either the mods are real power hungry (except for a few, some can be nice), or people practically beg to become a moderator. See mod wannabe for more on that.
Gametalk is no longer a video game forum, it's a place where losers worry about who's going to be a mod.

When a guy is a huge cocksucker and lives only to monitor a cam-whores page for offensive comments to her even though hes not getting any off her.
Alex has been such a moderator lately always moderating.

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!"

1) a sane person;
2) someone with a political belief that sits between the two extremes of liberal and conservative, usually combining aspects of both (example: liberal on social issues yet conservative on economic issues);
3) someone who seeks compromise on political issues and as such gets insulted by the two extremes who just don't get the idea that this form of government survives by compromise;
4) someone whose political beliefs seem quiet and mild, and as such always ignored by the media, which seeks out people from the screechy Left and shrill Right because they make for better sound bites.
Moderates rule. Turn off FOX News and CNN and turn on Cartoon Network!

1. By definition, the greatest political alignment on Earth.

2. A person who actually thinks for themselves instead of automatically adhering to all beliefs of a bipartisan system.

3. Someone who views political issues objectively and in a open-minded manner.

4. Someone who is actually willing to listen to another person's viewpoint without completely bashing their ideas.
1. I am a moderate...yay for me.
