Back when I actually moderated every post of a game thread, it would take me a solid two hours to get through it all. If I moderated the GT in real time, it took even longer (~5 hours to include pre- and post-game). For volunteer work, that's a lot to ask of any moderator every evening.
This is why the I love the report post function so much. It saves us mods all kinds of time as we aren't stuck reading every single post.
