The Nazi Moderator

The Nazi moderator is a strict leader. His own views are more important than others and he uses his moderator powers to surpress members that post disagreeable content. He also demands total respect for his Führership.

The Politically Correct Moderator

The politically correct moderator has reasonable leftish political viewpoints and fights against politically incorrect subjects such as racism and homophobia. On paper he is the worst enemy of the rightwing extremist poster were it not for the fact that it is politically incorrect to discriminate against these retards. Hence their views are allowed.

The Time Bomb Moderator

This moderator is usually selected for moderator duties at a whim or after popular demand. Usually the smart forum members already make objections to this particular selection of a mod but their worries are written off casually. After some time this new moderator explodes doing something that makes you think, "was that really necessary", leaving a mess. The moderator in question is quickly banned till the administration makes the same mistake a few months later.
