"Consideration" for services rendered does not have to be monetary in nature to establish a reciprocal relationship. "Consideration" can be represented by anything of tangible value provided to the "moderator/admin" in any form in return for their time and efforts invested.

What specifically is transferred by DPR to "moderator/admins" in order to make it "worth their while" ?

Ha, I forgot about that! So far there really has been nothing to make it worth our while save personal satisfaction for helping create higher quality forums. Maybe I should bring it up again and see if we can't get a free shirt out of it or something. Too funny!
