  •  Ha! (7+ / 0-)

    That really sums it up well.

    I think a team of paid moderators is the only way to go, and the only way I would donate. We can't use people from the site, because everyone is biased one way or the other.

      I wouldn't take any moderating job, even if they DID pay me. I used to moderate Street Prophets and it nearly gave me an ulcer. (And the community there was nicer and gentler than most parts of Big Orange.)

    •  yeah it's hard to be unbiased (8+ / 0-)

      even with someone from outside, over time, they'd start to know who's who and ally themselves to certain people.

      I really think they should get rid of HR. Relpace it with a report button, X number of reports gets it hidden, and admin can review it. Or something like that.  As it is, it's used a lot as a tit for tat. I rarely HR these days. Either Kos wants us to moderate ourselves, or he wants a free for all. Apparently he's been ignoring reqests for moderation.

      Which reminds me, slightly OT, but BBT is so quotable:

      Sheldon Cooper: I see what's going on. This is the opening salvo in what will be an escalating series of juvenile tit-for-tat exchanges. Well titted.

      Raj Koothrappali: Thank you

      Sheldon Cooper: Stand by for my upcoming tat!
