            Well, clearly we've had the "official" reply and explanation. End of story.

            However, here are my opinions:

            What is the definition of an employee?
            A person who is hired to provide services to a company on a regular basis in exchange for compensation and who does not provide these services as part of an independent business.

            Are moderators being compensated on a regular basis for services provided to PSO?
            Yes. Therefore, they are employees of PSO. A contract is not necessarily required to engage the services of an individual.

            Are moderators trained by PSO to perform this service?
            Yes.

            Do corporations provide training for individuals to perform a compensated service for their company, and not consider these individuals as employees or individual contractors of the company providing the training?
            No.

            Do PSO moderators have a contract with the operators of PSO not to discuss or disclose internal workings and business matters with others?
            Yes. Whether this contract was agreed to verbally or as a signed agreement, it does exist and can result in a PSO moderator being removed from this compensated position, so a contract does exist.

            Between the bait and switch promotions, moderators insulting members and posts and threads disappearing, it's no wonder some of us come away from our interactions with PokerStars and the PSO feeling a little soiled and dirty.

            Best free poker training around though, and a great hand analysis team.

                  Sounds like one of those who cares conversations that has no meaning to the learning of the game, Are people saying the mods are employees of pokerstars? not true they are just here to try to help as they have proven themselves capable, if they get small rewards for this so what ,they are just players the same as me or you, so why the jealously that its sounding like i will never know.
                  Some people , get a grip ,be happy for your fellow players who have had a bit of luck for once on here.

                        annie,

                        You shared your opinion on the matter. It should be ok for others to do so as well without being met by insults simply because they don't agree with you imho.

                          I don't get envolved in most of the promotions on here unless they are poker games, BUT i was surprised when RR won this BLOG THING . Any person receiving compensation from any company is considered to work for that company wether it's $0.10 or $10,000.00 that he receives for his services. Personaly it does not matter to me who won but after reading this thread i just thought i'd add my thoughts on it.

                            Such brilliant conjecture from someone who has played on this site for roughly four years and has to waste space in here asking about a frigging server restart for pity's sake.

                            Man,the sheer tonnage of what you will never know holdem could make a continent sink like a stone.

                            As to the matter at hand I think this should close the book on whether or not Mods and trainers are officially employees of the site. If this is the company position then that, as they say, is that.

                            I know that I,for one,have saved this response from Yulianna as future reference against any attempts by the site to have it both ways on this issue.
