This is related to Kev's recently posted question. Bill the Lizard informed us that mods know who flagged a post, but does this include them? If a mod gets flagged, do they get to see who flagged them? Not that any of these wonderful mods would ever think of doing anything untoward, but you never know. Bill might suddenly lose his mind one day and, if I have to flag him, madness plus "modness" could equal mayhem.
I can honestly say you have nothing to worry about, though. Even if we did something worthy of flagging, I think we're all mature enough to not try and get retribution against someone for flagging it. We were all chosen as moderators (many of us by community vote) at least in part for this reason.
Even if we went crazy...
- all of the more interesting moderator activities are explicitly logged
- most things can be undone... maybe not through the app, but certainly at the database - for example, user-accounts have been successfully resurrected
- I'm sure Jeff wants to test his backup system eventually...
So we can't do too much harm, even if we went postal
