So, I'm kinda torn on this, honestly. I'd like moderators around, so that if some jackass comes through and carpet bombs the place with MLM offers or nonsensical bouts of Tourette's transcripts, someone needs to take them out to serve the public interest.
That said, I appreciate this place because everyone knows what it is. McBear calls it "Internet Paintball", which is very accurate. Paintball is awesome as long as you know you're playing paintball. If you're just walking around and get lit up by someone, it's a pretty shocking and painful experience. They're playing a game, and you're not.
I think, by and large, we all know when the masks are on and when they're off. I hope D_320's early response to the bridge collapse was just a very fucking ignorant joke, because that's one of those threads where the masks are off (which, in paintball terms, means cease fire motherfucker).
Ultimately, that's why you need mods. Not to be draconian or dole out corporal punishment, but to let people know when to cease fire.
