View Full Version : What do the Mods say in their Secret Mod Meetings? (Necro Thread Alert, From 2008!)

I've always wondered this. We know the moderators have their own secret private forums at AW where they hang out and talk about us regular folk and make their Big Mod Decisions.

What goes on in there (besides making fun of our misspelled thread titles)?

Any theories?

A paranoid mind would like to know.

This one time, a mod (who shall remain anonymous) requested I send him/her a thread bomb he/she'd seen me post, for use in the mod room.

It was this one:

They start every day with their own prayers

Grant me the Patience to deal with them
The Keys to ban them
And the Wisdom to know which Super Mod to blame

then check to make sure we've all had our medication

then they argue over who was the last to have the lobster dictionary and didn't put it away properly

(I suspect they may even have a campaign on to 'x' out all Friday's from the calendar and then draw straws to see who has to monitor the TorD thread, but that's just a guess)

Since everyone seems so interested in what the mods "say in their secret mod meetings," here's a typical exchange:

Holy crap! You won't believe what so-and-so just posted.

Everyone crowds around to have a look.

Wow. Is she out of her mind?

Apparently.

Someone should intervene.

Yeah, someone should.

Everyone in the room avoids eye contact.

Well, isn't anybody going to do something?

Silence.

So, how about those New York Giants, eh? That was some game.

The plan is that eventually, to get onto The Internet, you first have to go to absolutewrite.com. That domaing WILL BE the Internet.

At the rate AW membership is growing, they'll be set to buy Google any day now. Then you'll see:

"Ads provided by AbsoluteWrite and not endorsed by Google."

And they'll all be ads for books written by mods.

Words from Roman History

These men once were horn-blowers and attendants
At every municipal arena, known as trumpeters in every village.
Now they present their own spectacles, and, to win applause,
Kill whomever the mob gives the “thumbs up”.


—Decimus Junius Juvenalis; a.k.a. Juvenal (c. 55-140 A.D.), “Third Satire”



Juvenal refers to the Roman custom of spectators’ voting on the fate of wounded gladiators with their thumbs. You may think a gladiator would appreciate the crowd’s “thumbs up” (verso pollice), but exactly the opposite is true. Where we give thumbs up as a sign of approval, it meant death to its Roman recipient; much to the crowd’s delight.

Thumbs down, signified “swords down,” which meant the loser was worth more to them alive than dead, and he was spared apparently so he could make up for his disgrace the next time he appeared in the arena. Keep this in mind the next time you give someone the “thumbs up” sign.

Our reverse interpretation of this custom apparently was the result of the work of the French artist Léon Gérôme who apparently understood the Latin verso (“turned”) to mean “turned down”...

Sheesh, get some books or maybe a tv for the mod room will ya?

Birol
02-13-2008, 09:46 AM
We play a game called, "Who wants to volunteer to...." We line up in a single line and when the person who is IT says, "Who wants to volunteer to..." we all step backwards as fast as we can. The person who steps back last loses. It's good training for when Mac asks us to do something.

In between games, I beg for permission to ban everyone until I have more time for AW. Everyone else, except Shweta, laughs at me.

There is but ONE MOD.

Jay is correct. I'm not real. Neither are the other Mods. We are all computer created bots that interact with you fleshies. We start out appearing to be fleshies, but we're only AI.

And, the Master MOD (Manifested Operator of Doom) owns all of you fleshies now. Stand by for reorientation...

You all missed a good discussion in the Mod Room last night. Between appetizers (bacon wrapped scallops and shrimp cocktail), we talked about a stunning image a new member is sporting. I wanted to pilfer the lovely work of art and use it in my sig line, but it was decided that would be stealing.

So I borrowed it, just this once, to show it off here. Isn't she a thing of beauty?

Nope, his crown is gold colored. Mine is silver. HUGE difference.

Now if I can only figure out how to photoshop a tarpon on top of that handsome piece of hardware, I'd be in heaven.

As a former mod, I can assure you that we didn't talk about the boards at all. We banned upon 2 or more negative posts without reading them.
In the private rooms, known as the Silk Palace, we were given the secret pass codes. TOGA was the first pass code and we changed it every time we decided to lock a former mod out. WE laughed when they discovered the surprise lock-out then deleted all the posts complaining about it until they cooled down.
Since I was kicked out I don't have the latest pass code. The last one I had was PaNtiEs (case sensitive) but it has been changed.

On meet-ups we would take pictures of our somewhat promiscuous behavior and shared them only amongst ourselves. We locked the right-click mouse-over options so we could not copy-paste and share with the internet in moments of anger, such as when i found out Lori was cheating on me behind my back.

For the most part it was fun for a while but it got old - well actually we got old - and we recruited some newer, younger mods. but the new generation just doesn't get it. It's the Mii society and us oldsters are a little too real and fleshy for them.
So they kind of took over the joint and some of us have been ostracized.

I am not bitter; actually I am able to get a lot more writing done. But I do miss the mod orgies.
They were fun.

Dang, you're right. And now it's too late. Alas. Just as well, some of the pics were panoramics and it would have taken several dozen prtscr's.

Mike, I'm sorry if I hurt you, but you were starting to get a little creepy. I told you, many times, that I was not in an exclusive relationship with you, that I wanted as much fun as I could get while looking for the One. And you, well, you're just not the One.

They say the same things about users that you say in rep comments to your friends here. They just say it in a forum format and actually discuss it.

Example:

Mod1

Rumpletumbler is an asshole. He is stirring the pot again. Lets ban him.

Mod2

At least he isn't Hillary.

Mod3

That's true. Nothing could be worse than that.

Mod1

You're right. I'm sorry. Will everyone forgive me?

Hahahaha... Hilarious!

Actually, some of us are fine with Hillary :D
