Since I keep getting asked...

- No, I will not ever go back to being a mod. At the time I was moderating, I took a LOT of heat from bans I wasn't even making. I was the exposed mod that everyone knew about so it was easiest to blame me. Being a mod on this site was one of the most traumatic experiences of my life.
The people here were SO obsessed with being banned or not that they would find me on facebook and find out where I worked so they could call my employer to say I was harassing them online. They would message my family members and friends who knew nothing about tengaged. A few users even found out where I lived at the time and were MAILING me death threats. And honestly, it's terrifying to have people know your physical address when that's way too much information for someone on the internet to know about you.
The task itself was extremely stressful. I cant even remember at this point how many stomach ulcers I ended up with from the stress I was put through as a moderator. For those of you who believe it's easy, it's not. It takes an immense amount of work. It comes with a lot of emotional baggage and stress. People will not stop to find you in real life if you ban them and they know it was you.
I don't think any of you realize how many people here are so obsessed over their accounts that they would go through getting phone numbers and addresses to get back at you.
