This is definitely an abuser with a VERY creative excuse.
Even if it was true the person was ''doing quality control investigation'' Why pick a Spanish person, who doesn't even know the italian language?
Secondly, no one doing such an important thing like that, would ever expose what is suppose to be done in secret because once the word goes out more people will be alerted about this and will be aware that they're been ''monitored'' for quality work as a moderator in a specific language and cover their tracks.
In all honesty, I like that idea but to all LANGUAGE moderators, of course. Yes, what you're saying is true, volunteers are working hard here but you have to admit some are also doing a very poor job here, and it needs to stop. I still see Spanish subtitles so bad bc it's obvious they were done with a translator, and that takes a lot of quality in the subs. Some claim to know Spanish when they don't and their native language just assimilates a little with Spanish.
I DO feel that these ''quality control investigators'' as that smart abuser called herself, should be proficient in the language they are ''investigating'' That way if a moderator is not doing what she chose herself to do as a volunteer moderator, she can be removed, replaced and never again be chosen to moderate any drama.
I did subs in some Japanese/Spanish dramas where the moderator who was in charge of the SPANISH team was not proficient in Spanish at all. A few only knew to communicate with me in Spanish using a translator! Why they were moderating a Spanish team still baffles me to this day. If you look around some old dramas are still in limbo to this day bc of those moderators. They are really easy to spot.
We have wonderful moderators here I don't debate that but we also have a few that needs to go and they still moderating teams from left to right because ironically those are the one most eagers to take 3 and 4 dramas at a time. I feel that many good or new moderators get turned down because of them.
