People who do it for free are crazy. It jades you and makes you insensitive to people's concerns and feelings to the point that you will LOOK for any rules infraction to ban people at times.
Training people...I pity anyone who is being trained to be a moderator
No matter what you are told, it is a 8-10hr a day freebie activity
