Oh, I wouldn’t go quite that far, other than in the strictly monetary sense.
They enjoy what must be an illuminating bird’s eye view of human nature, warts and all. Plus, I suspect they get to dine out occasionally on the stories they are able to tell of the extaordinary quirks of human psychology they witness (and perhaps analyse). At the very least I expect they get together ‘down the pub’ once in a while and have a darned good laugh amongst themselves, at the expense of some of us (and indeed, why shouldn’t they?).
I also cannot imagine anyone who lacks a very thick skin (like, say, that of a politician) volunteering for the job of moderator.
All the above is pure conjecture, of course.
I would add that they ARE (very) occasionally rewarded by well-considered messages of appreciation, and grovelling apologies from those whose consciences force them to try to atone for the misdemeanours they have commited against said mods…
“A rather tongue-in-cheek reference to some oldies (over 35) where it might be preferred that they clear out, making way for the exciting, dynamic new Millennials who (as any ful no) have all the answers, and are the only people whose opinions matter.”
That’s good. Now I understand you.
“Too subtle, sorry.” – Apology accepted. Very gracious of you.
