I have nothing but sympathy for anyone in Eyonix's position. I also work as a community moderator (though admittedly with a posting base a fraction of the size of Blizzard's), and whenever I get frustrated with the amount of disrespect, trolling and general rudeness in the forums I moderate, I just hop on over to the WoW forums to remind myself it could always be far, far worse.

I volunteer as a moderator and admin for a large-ish forum, though nothing compared to the size of Blizzard's. It's a thankless task, and there's always someone to complain that you're doing it wrong. I can't imagine moderating in the WoW general forums atmosphere. I've commented many a time, I have nothing but respect for the people who take on that job and somehow manage not to burn out immediately.

@Nonny, JordanI also agree. I was an administrator and moderator for a few different forums and was also became the head admin for another forum, and I know what it's like. Granted, those forums were considerably smaller than the WoW forums, and the community that I was the head admin of was a closer-knit community and got along very well, but still. I got extremely frustrated with two trolls on that community that just kept coming back, so I really respect those that moderate the WoW forums. An endless amount of trolls.But it's still sad to see someone go that we know and see a lot.Also, wasn't Eyonix the one that left the least amount of cryptic messages?
