Let us imagine, for a moment, a system wherein there are numerous individual rooms for socializing and chatting. Rather than being handled on a room-based basis, however, moderation is somehow distributed over the community such that every user with moderator abilities is somehow expected to be able to handle any conflict in any room.
Contrived scenario, I know, but bear with me here. In one of these rooms, a small out-of-the-way room that nobody frequents except for three people who (let's be honest here) don't know any better, someone decides to take issue with one of his fellows. This user somehow signals his discontent to the communal moderation system via some means (a "flag", if you will).
At this point, all three users in this poor unsuspecting backwater would glance at the darkening horizon and see coming toward them a...something...of moderators, eager for blood and/or justice.
I have seen mention of the oncoming mass referred to by a variety of nouns. The most recent (and the one that prompted this question) being a "flock". This, however, seems insufficient, as flocks are relatively harmless things: One does not fear an oncoming flock of sheep or cower under a flock of chickens. While a flock of seagulls may pick clean the virtual pavement of our system's parking lots, moderators en masse often leave naught in their path but death, destruction, and maybe some sticky notes to mark their territory.
This, obviously, suggests a "pack" but, whereas a pack of wolves is noble and organized and unified in purpose, incoming moderators often have no clue what they're supposed to be doing. They obediently come running when called, as any good pack of wolves does, but they do so blindly, formless and void.
Which brings to mind, perhaps, a "swarm". They can be both destructive and foreboding, but what they have in quantity they lack in quality. A swarm of ants, a swarm of locusts, a swarm of butterflies, a swarm of bees, yes they can be terrifying to behold but the individual units they comprise are not only tiny, but effectively mindless. Which, as we all know, is hardly becoming of a moderator who is always impressive in both mind and body.
I have Googled collective nouns and terms of venery for this topic extensively (well, for a few minutes, but I type real fast) and the closest I could find is a demeanor of judges. This, however, appears to be a non-standard usage.
So I figured, hey, if anyone would know the appropriate standard collective noun for a group of moderators, logically it would be a group of moderators. So I cast the question out to you all: What is the proper collective noun for a group of moderators?
