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.

*looks at your avatar* It's because you seem to be running Windows 2000... only XP and up are supported.
Most of your mods are good, but a couple of them don't install on my system and could probably use some documentation.

For it's size, the moderation here is MOSTLY fair. And to be fair to the mods, it's got a LOT better recently!

Ive noticed that after a few posted topics about issues/problems they have/seen on this site, things have gotten better as well. Seems like that may have opened some people's eyes....some but not to take anyway way from the mods.

Just want to point out something as I get the feeling you may not realize it, you realize that when it comes to the moderators and supervisors, it is not anyone's "job" correct? That all the staff except for the few that run the site are volunteers and get paid nothing at all. In fact most of them have regular full time jobs and do this on the side. So while I get the point you are trying to make, kinda sorta, this is really no ones job as you claim, so yeah, a little thanks is in order to be quite honest, as all of these people are volunteering their time in order to make it a better place for everyone else. And as pointed out, in most cases they already have some sort of "real world" job.
Thanks, I guess, although it feels forced. I know you didn't create this thread to directly get this response, but let's be honest, how would you have felt if you didn't get it (the response).
Most people have thankless jobs, you're really of no exception if you ask me. I wish I could post a thread at my Job informing everyone how thankless my job is so I can get some 'thanks', but this is real life. You wouldn't do this job if it didn't in some way benefit you; if you feel this isn't an adequate return than perhaps you should seek new ventures.
I'm not trying to be rude although I fully understand this is how it'll be conveyed, people don't generally like doughnuts without a tasty sugary topping.
