If you have never had a run in with a Neowin forum/news comments moderator and have been here a while, then we're doing a good job. If you have, I hope you appreciate the bs we have to put up with all the time :p

Be cool, thank a (Neowin) moderator today! :)

haha nice image to go with the point :)

It might be a thankless job in many respects but I think everyone here appreciates the work the mods, the news team and the owners do, so keep it up guys and gals.

I hate seeing people bitch about mods because it's a tough task and, like you said, it's rare to ever see them getting thanked or appreciated. So yeah, thanks for all the hard work guys!

When I was younger I used to be moderator on every message board I could get my cookies on. :p

My feelings were that I'd just make sure everyone follows the rules, and that was the end of it. Everything else was just to make chat and contributions like everyone else.

At the end of the day you're all (mostly) volunteers. No incentive to do what you do other than because you want to.
