Just out of curiosity, what powers does a moderator have?

Before I asked this question, I think of moderators as people who have super powers – who can change this site to whatever they want, like changing the rep of a user.

  • I think it would be good to know that this question was inspired by BrunoPereira's comment on this Question(which got removed) saying that he can strip away rep from a user until he learns. Commented Jul 25, 2012 at 10:02

We aren't super heroes, although and we might look like it.

We have the powers and tools mentioned in this Meta Stack Overflow post, plus I have power of detecting where there is food. Although there might be twitch other twitch causes for that. ;)
