The ones we have to drag in by their ears are usually the best. *puppy*

While I cannot claim to speak for the mods on this site, there some desirable qualities that a moderator in any forum should have: willingness to help others (the most important!); expertise in the forum's subject (which for this site could include general Windows knowledge, network security, an understanding of viruses/trojans and spyware cleanup); an ability to keep a calm head when dealing with difficult threads (and/or posters! ;D ) and the good sense to decide when a thread is getting out of hand and needs intervention; consumate diplomacy and a keen awareness of the importance of phrasing replies carefully (especially since it is so much easier to misinterprete and take offence from an online message).You do not need to be a moderator to help out - the benefit is that a moderator can move posts/threads if they are in the wrong place and are presumed to be knowledgeable and able to speak with authority.
(please note I am not volunteering for any of this - the existing mods do a perfectly good job and those HijackThis logs give me a headache!).
