Well, I agree and disagree. First off, CF isn't bombarded 24/7 with spammers, idiots, etc. but we do get them sometimes. Secondly, people who don't come on for a while, like a real long while, really don't deserve the position. OK, sure, they might come on once in a while, for an hour, ok, that's fine... but they are people out there in this place who actually put a lot of time into learning about comps, into learning about troubleshooting, into learning about how to help people solve their problems, etc. and sometimes, when those people are on and a spammer comes on or a person like bobthelol comes on and spams, uses profanity, etc. and there are no mods to clean it up in time, those people who spend time on CF can all just really sit back and watch. Who knows what happens. Some kid might read the profanity and repeat it somewhere (which can get pretty bad, trust me). Some idiot might post gay porn in a thread (which I actually saw and could nothing about) and there are consequences that are unknown to some with that, and more. In my mind, the people who became a mod, spent a little time on here, and just left with their "status" all high and mighty just isn't cutting it. I thought in order to be a mod and stay a mod you have to be active, know a lot, are helpful, kind, etc. What's this? I see your point setis, but it just doesn't make sense to me to have this hierachy almost of these ranks and positions and have only a few people out of a whole list be actively participating... ah well.... just my thoughts...
