Okay, I'm sure I'm going to p-off everybody one way or another, and I'm going to get labeled a brown-noser, etc., but I don't really care.
I seriously doubt that the moderators get paid for taking their time and effort to make this forum function as well as it does, and to try to keep everything civil and organized.
If they don't get paid, that means they're doing what they do here for no other reason than a love of the hobby, and a desire to help this place operate smoothly. It DOES take time and effort to do what they do, and I really don't think they're on ego-driven power trips.
The constant carping about little things that they do that might be not exactly the way someone else would do them seems to ignore entirely the POSITIVE contribution the moderators make, every day, just by being available to do a largely thankless job.
That's all I got on this one.
