The problem with 'forum moderator' as a job, is that anyone could do it. How do you find the ones worth paying for it?

Given the dismal state of even the better forums on the internet, it wouldn't take a very advanced AI to replace the job of a forum moderator.

White-collar jobs are gradually obsoleting themselves anyway, as people keep building tools to automate (and even replace) their jobs. This will lead to some interesting situations if we don't find ways to make our food cheaper without compromising its quality.
