Mods are volunteers?

Just Visiting | Nov 14, 2013 04:01 PM

It just dawned on me that the fact that the mods are volunteers is questionable. This is a for-profit company and presumably, CNET makes a reasonable profit or they would eventually pull the plug. Is this volunteer mod thing a hold-over from the Jim Leff days? It really seems inappropriate to me to have people working for free for a for-profit company.

It also makes me wonder what kind of people take it upon themselves to police others for free. Is that perhaps behind some of the mod problems that some - including me - have experienced?
