    I hope content moderator is not being discussed as the hardest job in the world. These things can happen anywhere. There are people in the military that literally risk their lives every day. People doing dangerous labor jobs with heavy equipment that take physical abuse alongside the verbal and mental abuse. People crushed to death by presses in tool and die shops. Oh noes! The stress of monitoring internet conversations! Obviously , no offense intended to the awesome mods of this forum or anyone like them but if Facebook and Youtube are that hard to work for then find another job.
