Can you imagine if you were modding a game where someone suggests that and all the players go "Oh yeah, Guy has a point!" and there's nothing you can do to correct them? I would expect the game to suddenly and mysteriously require a substitute mod. That or you just modkill everyone.
That's the real reason you need a co-mod. Not for the help, but for being someone you can vent to.
Can confirm. Depending on the state of the game ZFR had several posts comprised of "Seriously <playerX>?" I think I could hear him facepalm once or twice all the way over here during the last game, too.
ZFR's comments are not just informative they're also entertaining. Modkill/10 would definitely co-mod again.

gonna make a dramatic reveal at the end of the game?
They could tell the mod and have it reveal with their flip.
Ohh, it would be quite interesting to play a game with secret signups and everyone using a burner account. Masquerade mafia. People's actual username would be revealed with their flip. It would be interesting to see how many people could be identified by their writing style, I bet people would figure me out straight away.
Sounds great, but I imagine I would be unanimously identified within the first page.
Either that or I wud hav too Fairfox-ize maai posts.
