Secretly we just sit there like the Soon cat waiting for someone to slip up and then we pounce.

As a moderator on another community,I can say the thread's tittle is just right.

Most of the members did take a victim attitude in front of the Staff,misjudging their decisions (e.g:me) in order to find a way to be offended.

When I'm on the other side,I can see how's it really.

So,thanks for keeping the things right,Neowin team.

The best moderators,& the one's most respected, are those that arn't ###### with power.

I once saw on the Rainmeter forum someone asking a question about a uTorrent skin.The question was duly answered but then some high handed,supercilious moderator chipped in posting to the forum member,make sure you do not download anything you shouldn't do or words to that effect!

I said,who the hell do you think you are?It's none of your business what people do with their computers,least of all forum moderators.Needless to say the moderator removed their comment!

Sounds like the moderator was just reminding the person not to download some unknown file and possibly infecting their machine. Hardly sounds anything at all like some supercilious person. Sounds more like some one reading to much into it as so many people like to do on the internet.

 

As topic states though, moderating is definitely a very thankless job! ;)

I'm just glad you're not an editor with the way that was written.
