An Interview with a Moderators (A Spoof) The life of a moderator is quite complex. Over the course of 3 years, we’ve compiled a comprehensive series of interviews from various fandoms to determine just what it is that they do. A little later in Segment #2, we’ve asked various fans what they think Moderators do. Disclaimer: Absolutely none of the Moderators interviewed are from any specific location or fandom affiliation. The names have been changed to preserve the anonymity of those interviewed. Segment #1 - Since no one knows where moderators live, we found a few of their unlisted telephone numbers through some very savory sources. After many months of failed attempted calls, we were able to get through to this very recluse group of people who have unlimited levels of resources. Interviewer: Name some moderator duties that frustrate you Mod H … I could tell you, but I’d have to hurt you! ...(sound of a dial tone) Mod Bp …Warnings! For example, I’ve given countless warnings about having jelly doughnut delivered to me…how many times must I tell them that I prefer cream fillings!? Mod W ...If I break one more nail while posting …I’ll just faint! Mod Ym …ZZzzzzz! Huh?! I'll take a fifth of what you're having! Segment #2 …Word on the Street …conducted during NFL games at various NFC-East division home stadiums. Interviewer: What do you think is the job of a Message Board Moderator? Random Interviewee: I happen to know from a reliable source, that moderators actually applaud and celebrate when they caution a poster about misspelled words or typographical errors. Random Interviewee: Are really NFL players that were released/cut from various franchises. Random Interviewee: Have coffee intravenously and will respond to any post/thread 24 Hours a day! Random Interviewee: They're all millionaires! Segment #3 Word from the Posters (if you have the nerve) … Interviewer: Very carefully …What do you think is the job of a Message Board Moderator (your response could be a spoof or serious)?
