I've been browsing over past AT meets and I've never seen Anandtech Moderator. Why don't they attend the meets? Is it out of fear for their personal safety or something?

If they were there, they werent going to come with their mod caps on. They would just come as their public persona

Mods are like agents in the Matrix... they can become anyone at anytime. You never know when your average forum dweller is actually a Mod.

I still have a screencap somewhere of the time some pissed off banned member came back and posted a list of alleged moderators. Even assuming it was a correct list, it didn't really surprise me to see certain names on there.

Did I mention that I forgot all the names and lost the list to a freak hard drive head crash? Yes, I did. Really. :D

If you've been here for more than a year, and have posted some things that got immediate responses, you know who the mods are. I can name at least six off the top of my head. No, I'm not sharing, b/c...well, just b/c. Get your own private bulldog, dammit!

So wait... the mods are really just normal members.. aka RossMAN.. that just seems really odd... i pictured the mod as a single person... hmmmm

Yes we have had a moderator in one of our So.cal meets..

I wont say who.. but i know he is a mod despite we had fun.. poking fun at other mods.

and no, only a few ppl there knew he was a mod, rest didnt even know.. I was one of the lucky few who had guessed it.

Well, let's see here. Anyone that has a unique title...check. Anyone that goes to the same college that the boss does...check. Anyone currently affilated with AT's ISP...check. I guess I should stop now.


Oh yeah, and then there's the folks with multiple logins, but the same IP addy. Interesting....

I think I was on that list, yet I've been temporarily banned twice...

I didn't know being a mod was such a secret operation around here. The way you said it sounds like keeping their anonimity (sp) is national security.

SnapIT is a mod.

I always suspected but know how I have proof.

nah, he gets yelled at by the mods too much.


Ever see one Mod ban another, just to allay suspicion? Hang out...you will, eventually.

in order to see one mod ban another, you would have to know the identity of said mod... and lived to tell about it. *accusatory looks*
