The Moderator forum exists to facilitate private conversations between the site moderation staff.  It will be the primary means of communication between community empowered moderators and Microsoft moderators. 

Typical usage of the moderator forum might involve polling the other moderators opinions before taking moderation action, discussing problems with the moderation features of the site, or communication of announcements to the moderation staff.  Another use may include the discussion of potentially nominating community members to help perform moderation.
