We have admins out there some where. I don't know about mods. But maybe I've not been looking hard enough to find those.

We should probably expand the staff, though. With all due respect, you're one guy and you're not always on, but there's an endless supply of people who think that sexual harassment is the right way to open a conversation. Gotta have someone around to whack the moles.

(Before someone brings up /ignore: It works poorly at best, and doesn't stop people who literally open with obscene messages.)

Also doesn't stop people from just registering a new throwaway name account to do it again with absolutely no way to stop it :/ Completely unsurprised there are people on this site who have issues with consent tho.

I'm not a mod, haven't been one for over a decade now I think, and I would not only make a bad mod (I don't have the attention span, energy or right kind of disposition for it), but I'd barely be around enough to be effective even if I wasn't a bad mod, but I think possibly the backend is still kinda... fubar at the moment. Moderating the site is still kind of a massive hack job and a tangled mess of work-arounds.

I don't know the moderation back-end, so I don't know whether IP addresses are recorded so that an actual C&D letter can be sent (if we can catch their actual IP address on the first entrance) - but the weakness of the defenses is a continuing problem, and the only realistic solution (because a code-based solution is not in the cards) is to have more mods capable of whack-a-mole.

We can add more moderators.

Would you like to do that, Moon?

It somehow had not struck me that there even was such a thing but I think it has made me realize that I've never tried to think about it.  What a strange and magical thing it might be.

I volunteer as tribute!

But no, seriously, I've been waiting to put my name in the hat for moderator-ship for the past, goodness, 10 years. When Vivi (and Robo, and Palehorse/Ed) were originally promoted to MainHall mods, I hesitated - people laughed at the thought of a "girl as a mod." I'm still here though.

Some points to think on:
I've been part of the Keep community since 2001.
I have been a known and regular OOC-entity since 2008.
I have never been banned.
While drama can touch all of us at some point, I stay out of it generally.
I am still a well-known OOC-entity. Enough that people have asked me (Me!?) questions in regards to finding mods, AUP issues, etc.
I know the AUP. I know it's posted, but I also follow it!
I'm not scared of the more vocal degenerates out there. (AKA I don't have any craps left for people to make me cry and leave).
I have already approached Irra, Vivi, and Web about this possibility. :)
