Good question. It seems to be very arbitrary.
The mods are young twenty something EP members that seem to get their jollies exerting their puny, faux authority over the older kids. <br />
It might be endearing, if it wasn't so freakin' irritating. If you check out their profiles, a few of them even admit they enjoy having the power to threaten the members with EP jail. <br />
I wouldn't worry about it, they will do whatever they **** they feel like doing, irregardless of your behavior. <br />
Word to the wise, just don't mess with the princess or you will be banished for all eternity.
just do what others do and only be mean in personal pms to people who you think are weaker than you
