Including being a Fluther mod? Or any mod on any site?

“To suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune.” To learn by experience. To do what is needed to be respected by one’s peers.

It’s a matter of doing the hard work necessary to understand the fundamentals of a job, profession, or craft.

One usually doesn’t know if one has paid one’s dues until passed over for promotion or recognition, and realizing one is slighted.
