Because the people who run/moderate this site know the person in question IRL and know she can be trusted.




Checkout the EPIC5 script I work on, LiCe. Makes console based IRC fun and easy to use, just like the old days!

Based on credentials they've presented to a mod, or their credentials are already established through personal knowledge of the person. The mod will then have discussion with other mods before the status is listed. Freitasm posted a thread ages ago on how the trusted status works.
