    I’m biased because I mod some large subs, but I’d say 95% of the time I see them as an ally.

    Having seen behind the curtains, I’m glad they clean things up to keep the stage nice for me. You’d be shocked by the shit we see before it gets removed.

    That said, that 5%-20% of mods that suck really suck.

      Exactly. I’m a mod in a few subreddits, the biggest of which is /r/Showerthoughts. People don’t notice our existence unless we interact with them directly, and you rarely interact with users unless to ban them or to remove their content. So it is expected to be hated.
