He didn't say YOU did, he said SOMEONE did, but for your knowledge, you shouldn't do that kind of stuff.... Moderators are leaders. They have an intimate knowledge of the information that they moderate (for example, I'm a moderator, but not of the Viruses and Spyware section, I'm a Moderator in the Visual Basic Programming Forum). So, my point is that Moderation (at least here) isn't about if you are qualified to edit posts (to add code tags), mark things as solved, move mis-placed threads, and delete spam. It's the fact that you can answer most of the questions posted..... and if not, you can point them in the direction of the information.
It's not easy. You have to be able to spend a bit of time doing research, to figure out what's going on..... asking questions to get the information YOU need to help them..... Pick an area, become extremely knowledgable in that area, and answer posts. Period.
