Poll Question:
The Dark Lord: For Moderator

I present this petition to the community at large. I say here is your chance to prove what a truly evil moderator is like. Vote for me. Vote for the people of this community to find out what it's like to have a real tyrant in a position of power. Vote for nepotism. Vote for favoritism. Vote for bribery, blackmail, drug trafficking, child slavery, and real-life death threats. Vote for greed and arrogance. Vote for child pornography. Vote for unadulterated spam and anything else you want.

Or . . .

To all members who think people need to stop whining . . . Vote for people to stop whining about the moderators. Vote for the truth about the current moderators. Vote for how wonderful a job they really are doing. Vote for the fact that they care so much about keeping this website from spiralling down into a bottomless pit of childish name-calling, frightening death threats after spirited debates, porn, and infinite spam. Vote for a person from a different country living under different laws of whom is desperately trying to bridge the international culture gap. Vote for world peace through understanding and listening. Vote for a healthy community of wonderfulyl gifted internet people seeking each other out over thousands of nautical miles. Vote for love and kindness. Vote for the individual. Vote for the community. Vote for the little things in life. Vote for life and not death. Vote for children who might someday shape our future. Vote for God's everlasting kindness and mercy. And vote for yourself . . . you who came here a stranger . . . were openly welcomed . . . reached, traversed, and spanned the Earth's historic geological barriers to find not only that you're not alone . . . but also that there were people waiting for you when you finally arrived here; people much like yourself: curious, lonely, imaginative, and adventurous. And after all that distance you travel all that way through the modern marvel of technology and science and what do you find? People just people. People with hearts and minds and spirits looking to talk to you where ever and when ever you might find yourself in your real life.

I'm willing to fill the shoes of your local neighborhood jerkweed scumbag if it meant people would stop criticizing good moderators. Some people don't realize what a great place this is. And there's something to be said for the old saying, "You don't truly know the value of what you have until you've lost it".

I guess this thread is labeled "Spam Fest". Can't imagine why anyone would say such a thing.

The next step would be to haul it off to the Wastelands eh?

Ah, that'll never happen. The other mods are too much sticks in the mud. It's a good thought, though. Blackmail! Favoritism! Bribery! Think of the possibilities!

I'm going to give this thread a serious bump.

I know this thread is some light-hearted banter, but I do have something worthwhile to add. I was actually shocked to find that nepotism is considered a serious taboo here in the West, honestly I can see its pitfalls but there is no proper antonym for the 'negative' term to refer to the positive aspects (such as solid reference, or picked and chosen based on reliability by people that know you).

All my life I have been hired or offered jobs (while I was doing voluntary work, subsequently those that came along and saw me daily would offer me jobs, and while I did those I would sometimes receive offers out of the blue while doing even those). In my mind this would also come under the umbrella of nepotism, you're not going for standard due process, you're being cherry-picked by those who have grown accustomed to you and have seen you work, but you might not necessarily have a vis-a-vis relationship (or a professional one).

English imho defo needs a word for this. Nepotism might not be worth the effort to reconcile as a positive term, right now it's just synonymous with favoritism which imho should be the true culprit of all the negatives.  

Also Conny has my vote.
