I think you have to pass the Fascist Regime Ruler test and then you get a moderateer hat, jackboots, and shock collar.

And if you are really lovely, some psychotic wannabe member will name you one of Dawno's sparkle cows.

I have a secret plan underway.

I can't tell you what because, well, then it wouldn't be a secret.

Let me guess. Your secret plan either involves tuna or a piece of string. AmIright?

Just looking at this thread, even now, I know it's definitely safe from "trolls" what with the presence of all the mods here.

I thought they were called Tomatillos - we are growing some in the greenhouse (despite living in Ireland were the average temperature is minus 3)

The Mods here are fab. Really. And I say that as someone who has been supported, and sometimes told off by them. They are fair and forgiving and they do a great job on a very, very busy site and all for free.

When I have a question, problem or query I know I can always ask a mod. They are brilliant at policing some of the more heated discussions too - allowing everyone to speak their piece, but without letting argument s get out of hand.

If you look back at some of the more contentious locked threads, you'll see the ways the mods here handle those situations - with fairness, diplomacy and grace - and it makes being here so wonderful. I know that, unlike some other forums I've been to, that I'm not going to be stifled, or have my posts edited (seriously - some forums do this. TwiMoms I'm talking to you here) or be attacked for my comments, views and opinions.

The Mods keep everything in check. Can you imagine what this place would be like without them?
