30. Because as I said, we are not perfect
In the last five hours, I've gotten over 50 alerts on various posts in GD alone. As Moderators, we're also supposed to provide consensus on actions brought in by other Mods. This doesn't even count the posts you seem to expect us to spot automagically and without fail.

We get one nasty post, and manage to spot a few others on our own, and fail to see the other near it. After looking at all the dreck we have to look at, literally thousands of posts a day -- some of them so bad, they make me physically sick -- we're bound to miss some.

I'm sorry, but WE ARE NOT PERFECT. And DU isn't going to come to an end because we Mods fail to live up to impossible-to-meet standards of absolute perfection. You would not believe the hell it's been this afternoon, trying to stay on top of everything -- and then getting slammed for failing to get every last offensive post as quickly as everybody here would like. It makes me question why I even volunteered, to be quite honest.
