At the moment I have one main reason not to, I would clash brutally with Ramshutu and struggle to have a good working relationship with bsh1. Nonetheless, I could be a great mod if I really treated this site like a job and I have already come up with the perfect way I'd handle Ramshutu and bsh1 (neither would be banned, especially not bsh1 which has no justifiable reason to ban) in order to tame them and make them happy to work under me if I were chief moderator.
As for why I am not moderator yet, it comes down solely to Mike and his worry that people wouldn't like me. That itself stems from knowing I am both intelligent and unpredictable, which makes me dangerous for his agenda because he knows I would not be easy to remove once I am in power. If he were to demote bsh1, bsh1 would likely not throw a major tantrum, same with Virtuoso. Ramshutu would but Ramshutu is consistent in that he will value gaining power back over expressing discontent over the power lost so Mike knows that Ramshutu would tame himself if Mike simply offered him a much lesser role and gave him a pat on the back. On the other hand, there is me. I will come and tell you that I am a sexually dominant genius motherfucker and then spit verses out of nowhere too. While I have my boundaries and never directly violate CoC, I also treat this site as what it really is; a recreational place to let off steam, not a professional environment to be a member of staff. If I were to be moderator, Mike would need to provide me an account that is used pretty much solely for that stuff. If he did that, I'd put on my professional self's mask and be a quiet, disciplined moderator but he already knows that even then, the rebellious 'don't you dare demote me' guy would be present and I'd intentionally be partly corrupt in order to keep my position and please the masses.
Being a moderator and being corrupt go hand in hand, the difference is that moderators who know what they are doing will pick the right friends to be corrupt with and get rid of real assholes and scumbag users in the correct fashion, even going as far as legal action if need be if the users begin threatening or continually abusing the website's means of signing up etc to bypass bans. It's not easy to be a moderator, I never ever suggested that. You will get haters, lovers who then will partially break rules later that you'll struggle to punish and so much more. I don't lust the job but I know I'd be great at it, regardless. I would be someone everyone feared and/or respected in their own way. It would begin small but over time I'd snowball it, have a real team working under me, delegate moderation (especially if the person being punished is my friend, I don't want to deal with that manipulation but I also know that lowkey I'd want to avoid banning them for my own sake) and that's basically it. This is also why Mike won't pick me for moderator; I'm too damn willing to admit that I'm going to be biased somewhat and openly will tell the website 'I went easy on X for Y reason and went ham on Z for B reason.' and will even openly discuss the why's and how's to keep drama alive and activity going as well as being seen as a fantastic moderator by all (even my haters).
The reason why bsh1 stays in power is he's timid. He knows how to make everything appear like someone else's fault (his MEEPs are always angled, always bullshit wording and whether you vote yes or no his enforcement will not at all alter, especially with the recent 'delete debates against banned users' which solely was for me and enacted retroactively which he now will say it wasn't but was always against the rules). He does everything sly, lowkey and knows how to constantly shine the limelight on someone else like myself, disgusted and even you if ever drama breaks out too severely. This is why not enough people ever build a 'remove bsh1 from power' thing for long enough. He knows how to say to Mike 'I did nothing wrong man' and make it indeed appear that way to his lovers.
