Welcome to a new moderator

Our friend REWahoo is going back to retired status. Thanks REWahoo for being the ultimate in spam spotters. Sometimes you will not believe how sneaky the spammers can be.

Congrats Dude, I hope it's everything you'd hoped for.

I wouldn't ask for a raise untill your probation period is over.



Edit:
I just noticed Martha's new avatar, Wooow, how long have I missed that one?

Welcome. Don't forget you now have the special mod ability to embed messages in message so I expect to see a surge in penny stock postings in the stock forum.

Welcome FinanceDude

If I see any pop up ads on where to put my money, what's left of it, I'll know where it came from.

Seriously though, what do you have to do as a moderator. Surely you don't have to stare at the computer day and night to keep out the riffraff. Do you?

Some people do, although it's not necessary. When I was moderating I felt that I should be reading every post, even though intellectually I knew I didn't need to.

Spam patrol.
Customer service, especially complaints about other user's vocabulary/avatars.
Welcoming new posters.
Troll behavior modification/banning.
Minor thread cleanup.

Can't use the "Ignore Poster" feature, though.
