Recently, there have been many unfortunate incidents relating to our moderators. Several have felt the need to stop moderating - others have (maybe) been thrown out (?).
I have great respect for our moderators and I'm sure they play a significant role in making SO a great place.
I have not - at least not as far as I know - had a lot communication with moderators. An episode or two where a moderator has been involved - but not that much.
From the responses to various "resignation messages" it is my impression that many other SO users have had more communication with moderators than I.
To me, it seems as though moderators act in the shadow - removing stuff that shouldn't be here.
I've never gotten more involved.
So I would find it interesting to know how others interact with moderators. My question is:
How do you interact with moderators? When/how/why is it that you get involved in communication with moderators?
