"free speech under the constitution only guarantees the government won't stop him saying it and does not guarantee his right to say things and have no consequences at all as a result. also i completely doubt that he is motivated solely by "i'm saying it because i can" and is probably motivated by a more shitheady motive like "i think it's funny to annoy people and Rustle Le Jimmies™ and is just hiding behind the first amendment to try to deflect any consequences or make you realize that being allowed to annoy people is a superior moral right. you can still disdain someone for doing things for dumbarse wankery purposes and you have evne more right to ban and insult them for it" ~Trar's friend about Potato.

Assuming the situation were that Soul needed to recruit some mods, that would no doubt mean that the responsibility would far outweigh the power. There are some of us who might do well, but not a single person who would think to misuse the position really deserves it.

"The Mod Delusion" I fuckin lol'd. Nice one.

As for the whole mod/admin thing, having been a member of this site for close to 7 years, with a good chunk of that time spent as a moderator there was definitely a bit of allure to it, you're criticizing people for romanticizing it but they aren't too far off base. I'm not saying you're wrong, it shouldn't have been that way but it was. Being a mod did sort of make you a role model, it helped to mark active members of the community and people who held respect.
That's not to say it didn't have it's problems, some regarded themselves as better because of the title, there was power abuse, security breaches with accounts getting hacked (Ju5tin sticks out), and straight craziness occasionally with mass deletions which happens to be how I lost my mod powers. Correct me if I'm wrong Soul but I believe me snapping was the catalyst for the first great forum shutdown. Or maybe that was after Vatman.

Anyway, it seems to me like SS is doing okay right now with just soul. I think it would be cool if mods were brought back but it's by no means necessary and probably more of headache for Soul than it's worth.

lol, I have no idea. There were so many shutdowns and mass-deletions and other chaos. Hard to keep track. Laugh

I <3 my anti-spam plugins. Spam was the only reason I made people mods in the first place, but it kind of spawned all kinds of unintended side effects. Why get people to do something that scripts can do? Razz
