You shouldn't be in that position. You are a user, Reddit shouldn't out you in a position to have to do their job for them.

At the very least, you should get a cut of the ad revenue your sub brings in. No technical reason they couldn't do that, and it would incentivize you to behave, as well.

Well I enjoy the topic I moderate so that's why I do it.

How does the power you have over people who are otherwise identical to you play into it?

Because I put in the time to make the sub what it is. Weed out the bad actors, update the theme, etc etc. I donate my work for the better of community. Who watches the watchmen? If not me then someone else could do it sure.
