What is this moderator stuff?

I just noticed some posters have the "mod" sign attached.   I also noticed some of those moderators are as arguementive as anyone else and are posting as opinionated posts as "regular" posters in some of the threads.  Anyone here know what is the deal?  Does the "mod" badge give them more authority in their opinions?
