how-to block ads
Unpaid, part-time moderators have the power to delete, move or edit anything they find offensive. Please thank them, because without their efforts, the boards would not be as useful as we think they are.
In any forum that has a host or hosts, you can click the host's avatar at the top of the forum. This will bring up a box telling you who the host(s) are.
Forum mods have powers within their forums only. There are a few site-wide mods who have power in all forums. They are not distinguishable except to other forum mods.
Sometimes the system will hold back comments for special attention. Users can also highlight comments as being inappropriate.
Generally, though, the majority of posts to the forums appear in their original format.
