Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This is moderator list on meta:

Why are some moderators in one list but not in other and is Anna Lear not showing on none of them?

Anna got job at Stack Exchange and hence is no longer an elected moderator.

Before SE 2.0 was introduced, all trilogy moderators got to be MSO moderators, accounting for Ivo and random (SU). Kyle and Joel got their diamonds for running the User Voice pages that SO used for feedback before MSO was created.

Was ready to give the Adam Davis CW explanation...but you're not Adam Davis. So why is this a CW??? – Adam Rackis Feb 6 '12 at 22:24
@AdamRackis - Have you seen how much reputation I have here on MSO? There's nothing I want to put a bounty on and this needed an answer rather than a comment. – ChrisF Feb 6 '12 at 22:25

@AdamD - I think somewhere Jeff's ears perked up – Adam Rackis Feb 6 '12 at 22:34
