    I was hoping to know whether or not all the Moderators and Administrators mind being called mods and admins. So?

    As long as you don’t call them Sue, they’re fine with most anything, but Mods and Admins will do.

    Or Sir (or Madame)

    If "mod" is fine, what about "s3m", "mtm" and "xm"? ;)

    OK, sir. :)

    I wanted mainly moderators/administrators opinion to see if the terms mod/admin were offensive to them. But everybodys welcome to comment. :)

    This is such a bizarre thread. I imagine the mods and admins couldn't care less about that, especially as I'm sure they've been called much worse many times over.

    Personally I hug them and squeeze them and call them all George.

    Speak for yourself! I demand to be addressed via calligraphy wrought by the blood of young lambs.

    Or whatever... I really don't care.

    The blood I demand does. You're using the wrong lambs.
