Running an online forum is not as easy as we imagine, besides online forum owners having to think about sources of income to pay paid to post to their members, be it income from Ads networks, advertising on forum sites, sponsored content, affiliate subscriptions, etc., admins or forum site owners too must apply legal and compliance laws on Information and Electronic Transactions such as: Complying with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which does not only apply to one country but applies internationally, defamation, spreading fake news, copyright violations, insults and threats against other members, badmouthing religion, ethnicity, race etc. Online forums must also provide Terms and rules, Privacy policy,

In several cases that I encountered, there were often differences of opinion between members who often used dirty words, insulted each other, etc. This is one of the roles of a moderator who must be able to resolve these problems peacefully. A moderator must also give a warning/ban if they encounter copyright violations/plagirism, adult content, etc.
