In interviews with The Washington Post, 14 current and former moderators in Manila described a workplace where nightmares, paranoia and obsessive ruminations were common consequences of the job. Several described seeing colleagues suffer mental breakdowns at their desks. One of them said he attempted suicide as a result of the trauma.

Several moderators call themselves silent heroes of the internet, protecting Americans from the ills of their own society, and say they've become so consumed by the responsibility of keeping the web safe that they look for harmful content in their free time to report it.

If you're talking about dirty jobs in Manila, Philippines, you're referring to "Malabanan Pozo Negro" service. It's a nationwide septic tank cleaning service.

wrong forum section? nothing to do with computing or networking
Actually it does. The technical nuts and bolts of computing or networking are just infrastructure. The implementation of content filters and classification of that content is a very important aspect of the subject. Currently this is actually done by people not some machine AI programming agent without feeling. Content moderation is central to modern social computer networks.

Contrary to the headlines predicting that AI will supplant all human moderation, Accenture believes that the future is built on a synergistic relationship between human moderators and AI. This “bionic” model will change both the AI used and the people required.
