If you've noticed, there are quite a few very red faces on this board these days. So many that it almost seems like that's all there are! (Perhaps it's their posting habits that helped them gain this position in the first place, along with content).

Anyway, INTL seems to be a place that believes in the American tradition of hanging around somewhere long enough that you get more notoriety than all of the new people and you become cooler and more accepted than them. See: Jews, Italians, and any immigrant class ever.

Now, look at me. I never do a god damn thing, but I'm still a moderator! Even after my previous forum was destroyed for lack of activity... Imagine sitting in the lobby of a doctor's office for such a long time that they eventually put you on the payroll. Then imagine that the doctor tears down his building, so you sit in the next one and the same process repeats itself. That's a lot like what my job here is. I'm not complaining at all. In fact, I relish and admonish this system. It gives me hope that perhaps my every day life could be like this one. A life full of "who-you-knows" and coincidence!

Being a regular and background fourmer brings me pain and misery, but only in the best of ways. INTL needs to become a political party.

We couldn't be a viable party. We don't agree on anything, we bicker uselessly, and there's no way any of us would unite for any purpose.

Being on both sides of the situation, I'll say that I don't miss the responsibility of moderation. I have enough to do without having to wipe noses on the internet too.

Well I make sure to tell all my rl friends that I'm a moderator on a forum and the internet prestige and all that. It's quite important, you know.

I tell everyone that I'm a run an Internet message board and they all think I'm cool and want to be my friend, because if they get on my bad side, I ban them from my message board, even before they ever get an account.

During my weekly call home, I told my mom that they made me a moderator on the forum I post at.

"Hey mom, they made me a moderator on the forum I post at a lot."

"where is this?"

"at the forum I told you my friend runs"

"isn't he in Iraq though"

"yeah"

"I thought you said you weren't going to Iraq"

"I'm not mom"

"don't you lie to me, last time you went to Iraq you didn't tell me about it until you were there for three months"

"no mom, it's on the internet"

<pause>

"that's good, right?"

"yeah mom, thanks for the congratulations"

As you can tell my family was very proud, and that's enough for me.

I don't think drah's comment really applies to you Snowy. You haven't really been here that long.

Also, I would never tell my mom that I am a moderator at this place or even that I forum here. She'd probably disown me.
