Imagine taking charge of a forum that has been decimated by spam and cleaning it up to grow the membership. Not fun at all weeding out the problems, spending days going through the membership to find the spammers, removing spam blogs and posts, going through IPs for dirty ones and email addresses and you do this all on 'YOUR' time to make forums enjoyable for others. I could do better things with my time, but I too am a member just like you and I really don't want to read posts about diet pills or making my computer faster or bad behavior.

I make sense all the time. The problem is you only listen intermittently

There's no violins or symphony orchestra.
If anyone feels up to the challenge of being a moderator, contact the admin and step up, give it a try.

I play tennis and fish for a challenge. Heck, when I get the urge I do long distance riding.
No doubts that the mods have an important job in any forum.
Your work is appreciated.

I was a moderator for several years for a web hosting company. I scoured members sites for illegal content etc. You would not believe the things I came across, i.e. child porn, drugs for sale etc. Several times I would have to make reports to the proper authorities. Dealing with "trolls" on the sites forums was the least of my worries and regular honest members would make short work of them and away they would go.

Looking back, the most disagreeable thing we have to deal with is Trolls.


the other things, like Merge threads is common place and easy to handle, and does not irritate anyone.


Passwords used to be a real headache because the email system does not work well, if you have changed your email address and lost the old one. To resolve that, I posted up my personal cellphone number in the Error, Password incorrect statement....


I have not had any calls at all that I can trace back to posting up my phone number that way,
but I do get a lot of calls from members expressing relief at hearing a human voice and being able to get their passwords fixed.
