how-to block ads
In any forum that has a host or hosts, you can "mouse over" the host's avatar at the top of the forum. This will bring up a tag telling you who that host is.
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.
