I love the moderators on WP. They help to keep things running smoothly on WP. If I stray from the rules, they remind me not to post things that I shouldn't post. They're the colonels who keep everything in order. I also appreciate how they made me feel protected during my first 11 years here when I had a much thinner skin.

Agreed :) . It can't be an easy job for them sometimes. I used to moderate a fan forum years ago and it was a lot harder than I first thought it would be. Great job mods :) .

I am also impressed by the high quality of the moderators on this forum. Thank you all.

I'd drink it :) - even though I don't drink! Thanks for the affirmative thoughts - I'm sure the whole team appreciates your acknowledgment. It can be quite challenging at times.

It is extra hard to do the job they do because of the software and the fundamental disagreements as to what autism is and whether it is a curse or a gift.

I don't know how the mods do it.

Whenever I think, "This thread is amazingly interesting" it's immediately banned, and whenever I think, "This thread should be banned!" It's supported by mods.

So, my theory is they do it by telepathy directly into my brain, and then take the opposite action.

Very clever, mods! :jester:

The vaccination thread, the "why do people want children?" thread, the thread where GF admitted to drug dealing, and 47 others, which I will name when you send me your credit card details.
