Yes they get paid, being a mod is a full-time job.

No, they get paid in laughter. Which is given by you.

Yes they do. They even get all-expense vacations to Las Vegas for the ISH Admin/Mod conference. I heard the conference is pretty hype. They go through several seminars on how to control their anger and how to treat trolls.

Why pay for something people would do for free?

Every once in awhile, Jeff will "release" one of his female .. "companions". These are women that for some reason have fallen from grace from him, i.e. they ****ed up his eggs by burning them too much around the edges or they no longer fall within his generous threshold of 9.998+ out of 10 on the hotness scale.

Then he makes the other mods fight for her in a bloody battle. Only one man can be victorious.

Jeff's kind of messed up, to be honest.

Because the people who would do it for free would do a terrible job. Would you rather pay someone to do a great job, or not pay someone to do a shitty job.

There's people that spend hours on this board, who's too say they won't do a good job. The only reason modding is lenient now is because Jeff is the same way. You act like this is some community service stint. People actually like being here and wouldnt mind helping.

I believe we should know Jeff's answer to this one.

In all honesty, the modding is pretty good in ISH, the problem is that the mods have very limited powers which makes them seem ineffective, although they aren't.
