Hey folks, we're looking for a few good people to become volunteer moderators here and keep the amount of trolling, bigotry, and Stick Rule violations to a minimum. The already-existing crew of volunteer moderators for Raw Story tried their hardest, but---and this is a good thing!---the high levels of activity in our little corner of the world make it hard for them to keep up. So, I'm hoping that a few regulars who like this community and want to keep it clean and welcoming could sign up. We're not asking much. If you're a regular reader of the blog comments and a regular commenter, it would be a matter of just doing what you're doing, but with Very Special Powers added that make it so you can boot some motherfuckers who are out of line.
If you're interested, please email me at amanda (dot) marcotte (at) gmail (dot) com and I'll e-introduce you to our head comment control dude.
