The Moderator by Allison-beriyani The Moderator by Allison-beriyani
And Now for a Special installment of the Internet fauna series: The Moderator.

Previous: [link]
Next: [link]

Also Known as the Admin, or Staffies, the Mod is one of the few creatures on the internet that actually hunts trolls. As an apex predator, it actually feeds on drama of all kinds, and patrols vast stretches of internet in search of food. These territories are so large that it is rare for a Mod to actually be present at the site of a troll attack or other disturbances.

It hunts by watching for scuffles to arise between internet denizens and charges in while they are distracted, swinging the hard bony end of it's powerful tail, commonly known as a "banhammer" it's not a precise tool, however, and the troll's prey and innocent bystanders are likely to be hit as well as the trolls themselves.

While extremely powerful, the Mod is not invulnerable- Other Mods can and often do take them out, either to gain their territory or to stop the spread of God-syndrome, which is a fatal disease that causes them to behave excessively aggressively.

Do admins of groups count as Minor Moderators?

They're of the smaller species of the same Genus.  There's also Chat Hosts, Software Admins, Forum leaders- literally any role with the ability to kick out (Banhammer) someone from a region of the internet.
Thank you for the insightful question!

^w^ You're most welcome. Personally, I carry traits of the Fetishist, the Roleplayer, and a small mix of Troll and Go-To. As an admin of the Conjoined-Club, I may be a member of pack-based Moderators.

And I'm remembering the one time I got Post-4chan Stress Disorder. I cured it rather easily by satirizing the creepypasta I've read. ^^

Fetishists are an important part of the internet ecosystem- they're also some of the oldest creatures around.

"Giggle at the Ghosties" if you will.

Here's an addition: Moderator plumage is almost always kept immaculate, in case a special event like a contest or similar occurs. Moderators then show off their plumage to all other fauna, though when trolls and occassionally critiquers talk about issues the site may be having, they tend to become aggressive and wield the ever-present banhammer.

It would have to be immaculate- can't go around with the blood of other users rotting on oneself, can you?

Indeed no, considering the impressive mating displays that moderators do, rotting blood tends to detract from the overall appearance, and female moderators have a keen sense of smell!

I'm not up on the mating displays of moderators, as I'm usually in poorly patrolled areas studying troops of trolls.
Do they dance? offer up fresh kills? sing?
