Being a mod isn't all it's cracked up to be. Trust me. As a mod of the largest computer security website I don't envy their position but sympathize with them.

That can't be right... I thought Lotek was Jealous and I was Envious. There couldn't possibly be clones of us running around this forum.

And it actually has little to do with people living here to. I have been living here and posting for a while (2nd top poster) and only recently got asked. IT is actually pretty random haha

Oh god...mc hammer...please no....

I tried being a mod on a different board once....wasnt too good...it's jsut frustrating at times. Not again man, not again.

I also am a guild leader on an online game (everquest), so I still have a lighter version of board mod .... "omg this guy is making me mad, he sucks, plz make him stop!!!"
