I don't typically initiate conversation about me being a mod elsewhere, aside from INTPc and except to private individuals who I end up being close friends with. Why? Because it's kind of irrelevant, and I don't want other mods on the sites to feel nervous or fear I'm going to try to throw my weight around. (It helps that I use a different userid than I do here, so I can go stealth easily.) From a rational standpoint, my mod status here has no bearing on my authority on another site: I'm just another member and will have my contributions weighed as such.
