Article: Phoenix Rising Forum Moderators/Greeters Opportunities

The value and importance of moderators was clear when Phoenix was down for several days and we looked to other sites for news. The nastiness, misinformation, bashing, paranoia - all directed at each other, scientists, organizations - wasting all that energy instead of working for the cause. The only way we can have a productive forum is for larger numbers of people to volunteer to moderate to keep the forum focused on the goal. (That's not censorship; it's fulfilling our purpose of contributing to a cure.)
