I enjoy being a mod just fine. I neither love it nor hate it. It's a job that needs doing, and I think that is the balanced way to look at it. If you cling to it, you become too much of a people-pleaser and lose sight of the best interests of the subverse. I've been clear that I'm willing to let the role go, but the notion that there's some uprising against me is a false narrative, and I think this is mostly about kevdude's ego and Vindicator's people-pleasing tendencies (and perhaps his ego as well). (I recently refused to back down from Kevdude on the issue of users linking removed submissions, and I was rather frank with him, but turnabout is fair play, yes? He has always been quick to act like I'm power-tripping, which strikes me as sheer projection). Modding has been going fine lately. There are certain shit-stirrers who NEVER shut up and always try to find stuff to blow out of proportion. @kevdude, I see @Disappointed is a rather old account? Do you know him?

You have way too much fucking ego to moderate a forum about child abuse. This forum was never about you, fuckhead, and if you were really so nonchalant about the whole thing you would have went and fucked yourself a lot earlier before whatever happened recently.

Well said! I always got the impression MF is the type of rigid, boring IT or accountant type who has very little emotion and too focused on hard facts, but your ego angle makes a lot of sense too

Maybe have some appreciation that I've been doing this for a year, all the while wishing there were someone else to do it. I would rather be doing my part by continuing to expand the Executive Summary I spent weeks working on, but I'm not able to do that because nobody else seems willing to do the thankless job of moderating

That was you 3 weeks ago. I can only go off what you say. I think the best idea is to let it go for bit and see if you can all uncover some more leads while seeing how things go.

Kudos to you bro and thanx for digging that up. I was planning to do that myself but you saved me the trouble. He is always a victim, he is never wrong. He says he does not have time to mod, will not let people help him. Has said several times he would like to step down but nobody will do the thankless job he must do.


Now we can watch him make a masterpiece out of the summary since he has time, but suddenly he does not want the time. His excuses are endless and thank you @kevdude.


I look forward to the days when people can see cool stuff to post and not fear their time will be wasted away in vain by having it deleted.

Yes, that's true. I am very ready to step aside if someone else can do the modding work, but I won't be removed by kevdude's decree. He's acting like it's a forgone conclusion (because he wants someone who will submit to him readily), while the community hasn't had a say yet, and most who have weighed in support me, even though this sort of thing always has a bias toward attracting complainers and shills (and that ever-present troll with hundreds of accounts).

@Millennial_Falcon: I wanted to personally thank you for all your time and input. Very few of these people are aware of how much work this sub put in last year when this issue first broke. Truthfully it was a mess and in need of order. You brought that. Maybe it was thankless, maybe you tired of it. I know I did as a poster and researcher. I had to take breaks. I had to walk away and find “life” again.

And for all the newbie whiners who have no clue why harsh moderation was and IS still needed will never understand. I turned down being a mod twice because I knew how polarizing and difficult a job it would be. My skills were and continue to better spent on research and education.

So thank you comrade. Your efforts by those who know why will always be appreciated.
