The mods pretty much don’t do anything any more. The vast majority of recent mod actions has been to remove some spam threads. But railing against the mods does make me wonder which ban evader you are.
That’s not it. I cannot add a mod to my ignore list. I would love nothing more than to do so, but I can’t. That is the only reason I don’t use this site as my primary discussion and gaming discussion forum. I don’t care if you’re a troll, if your signature is a giant wall of page-expanding text, or if you brag about it as long as I don’t have to look at it, but because it is so easy to be a mod, and mods are unignorable, I have to look at it.
So easy to be a mod? Hell, we haven’t changed mods in YEARS despite over half of them being inactive. To be a Mod, you have to be a Staffer, and to be a Staffer, you have to have made a Shrine. No one ever claims that shrining is an easy thing to do.
And I’m pretty sure most forums make mods and admins unignorable. If it’s their duty to enforce the rules, and that includes telling people when rules have been broken, it makes absolutely no sense to think you should then be able to ignore them. But I’m glad that you’re blaming one minor function of the forum software (which may not even be changeable, I don’t know, ask vBulletin) on why you don’t come here as much. You could potentially also just ignore them the old fashioned way of just paying them no mind. Ask Wilf about that; he took that immature route already.
