Be a hero! Join the Malicious Intruder Removal Team today!
Volunteers who wish to help keep DU running smoothly should consider joining the Malicious Intruder Removal Team (MIR Team). The role of MIR Team members is simple: they are empowered to revoke the posting privileges of people who show up at DU with the intent to disrupt.
Members of the MIR Team are NOT responsible for removing posts, locking threads, or dealing with violations of DU's Terms of Service wherever they may occur. To repeat: the MIR Team is solely empowered to revoke the posting privileges of people who show up at DU with the intent to disrupt.
If you are a DU member with at least six months of membership, at least 1,000 posts, and proof of identity (ie. you are a current DU2 donor and made the donation in your own name) then you can apply to be a member of the MIR Team.
How do I apply?
Simple: just post in this thread to let us know that you'd like to give it a try, and you could be selected by the Admins. There is no application form to fill out, and no confidentiality agreement to sign. MIR Team members do not have access to any privileged information about other DU members.
Members can serve on the MIR Team for no more than 90 days, and can resign at any time without penalty. For much more information about the MIR Team, click here!
