The demodding circumstances have a lot to do with whether there's a meltdown. Some mods become heavily invested in the site and being demodded is like a betrayal and it is also a loss of face.I was once a moderator here and did not blow up when I ceased to be moderator
I remember Smiffy, he got his nickname from hanging around the bicycle sheds and sniffing the still warm girls bicycle saddles and then heading off to the toilet cubicles with a stalk that would beat pigs out of a creel... Sick sod.Cruimh is on Irish Politics Online as a nazi mod .You get by there by posing inane rubbish .
I remember a guy at school with the nickname smiffy maybe its him ? He had this wierd habit of calling people for no reason .
