That's why we have a good sized team to sift through some of this shit.
That said, the one form of compensation I do get is the ability to do some things the average user can't to create some lulz for myself, and others. I'm disclaiming right here, right now, that I plan on compensating myself more frequently. You all miss Bob Dole and his antics? Well then let's bring them back...
Dude, part of being a moderator on ChiefsPlanet IS abusing your powers. It is part of the sites charm. Part of its lore as well. Mods "torture" individuals from time to time and most everybody gets a laugh out of it. A few take it too seriously and get their knickers all knotted up and everyone laughs at them too (or accuse them of being pussies). It is just a part of this place. If you are a mod and you don't do these things at least once in a while, you suck at the job.
Like you said, you are doing a lot of work, putting up with a lot of BS, for free. Those who have a problem with the way you or any of the other mods do things are welcome to pay you to do the job in a more "professional" manner. I'm sure you guys wouldn't mind.
