It's the idea that counts, giving physical manifestation and order to something that would be otherwise be inconsistent and difficult to see.If you really feel this way then wherein lies the novelty of a Siberia exile?
Mods and Admins are the samething here. They have the same abilities. Those listed as mod instead of admin just haven't been here in years. So they lose a few abilities for security reasons.Moderators are placed on a higher totem pole than administrators?
That's... rather backwards, but ok.
While that is true, can you be so sure when you do post it has no value?I'd like to be exiled here sometime. In that event, I would be sure to post absolutely nothing of value.
Does this statement relate either to your thread title or does it matter how many moderators there are?This forum has many more moderators than I suspected it did.
Hitler had a problem with some of the financial and thus economy directing forces and thus part of the rule in Germany being done by jews. In GERMANy. What makes the jews fit to rule in Germany, it's not like it's called Jewmany or something.While that is true, can you be so sure when you do post it has no value?

Since this is an INTP forum, do you have an opinion of moderators being non-INTP or does it matter? Does that not seem strange?
No, and in fact I've somewhat rescinded the idea the none of my posts here have any value, even if I originally did mean it in earnest. As most of my posts here are extensions of myself, I can at least say that the vast majority of them are useful to me. I just wonder if most of them shouldn't have been relegated to a blog or text file.While that is true, can you be so sure when you do post it has no value?
Neither, really. The thread title was purely consequential. I happened upon the other Bans thread in Crime and Punishment and that made me for some reason think about what I said in the OP. But now that you mention it, that thread also made me realize how many moderators (administrators actually, I guess) there are.Does this statement relate either to your thread title or does it matter how many moderators there are?
Strange? Perhaps, but it doesn't bother me. Although Latte makes a... eh, at least decent, point, I actually prefer it to a system where those in positions of authority have to conform to certain standards that may not be any indication of whether they would be good and just in those positions of authority. I like to think that the reason the admins on this forum got to where they were because the Supreme Ruler saw them as valueable members who are also clear-headed and decent humans, and I can only look up to them for that.Since this is an INTP forum, do you have an opinion of moderators being non-INTP or does it matter?

"Jewmany"! That's a good one. Never heard that before.Hitler had a problem with some of the financial and thus economy directing forces and thus part of the rule in Germany being done by jews. In GERMANy. What makes the jews fit to rule in Germany, it's not like it's called Jewmany or something.
As someone who purposely and purposefully attempts to find meaning in the mundane and abstract and correlate it with large-scale issues and / or questions as a mode of living, I can say that this is truly an apples and oranges comparison. Disregarding other factors such as career, motivations, etc., which would only detract from the essential point, what do teaching and forum moderating have to do with each other? One group is imparting their knowledge onto others, and the other is... making sure the rate of spam and maliciousness is kept at a minimum, and punishing those who cause the levels of these acts to be above threshold tolerance. Forum moderating requires only a very general set of skills that can mostly be seen as common sense or can be picked up in very little time at all, as opposed to a good teacher requiring years of specialized training, good communication skills, and in some cases the ability to maintain order in a chaotic environment and a large dose of patience.Consider this: Those with degrees in physics might be qualified to run a science class, but would those with degrees in fine arts be?
Mebbe. Mebbe N's. Mebbe TJ's. But F's? F's could appreciate but wouldn't they be almost as likely to depreciate? Seems to me a mix would be a good thang.Maybe NFs and NJs are better at handling INTPs. There's nothing automatic about INTPs being better equipped to handle a forum full of INTPs.
In fact, it can probably be argued that NJs and NFs are better administrators and community managers even for an INTP heavy forum, through MBTI... and on the side of that possibility, one could argue that mods should ideally be "employed" (selected for noble duty) based on individual merits rather than their particular type.
I have to accept what? How can I accept what I don't know what I'm accepting?I think you misunderstood the jewmany analogy because the criticisms of it has nothing to do with the commonality between the situations. Germany was German oriented. You're basically Hitler D:. Just accept it. Accept the Hitler within.
We know how nice mommie is to do that for you. But better to not do it in the first place so you can can qualify to be a man some day and get a woman of your own who will set you free.Clean up the pee on the floor and the poop in my pants ;_;
