My husband is a cyclist and I am a triathlete, and I am much much slower on the bike than he is- we joke that I prefer to do many things poorly rather than any one thing well ;)
Thank you for your appreciation of r/science! Because so much of scientific research is publicly funded, I believe that researchers have an obligation to do outreach and communicate science to the public- in that endeavor, with >21M subscribed readers, r/science is a major communication resource.
In practice, only a small portion of the 1500 moderators are active in any given month (less than 5% have more than a handful of moderation actions), and the 'power moderators' are in pretty tight communication on a daily basis. I can't say enough good things about that team of moderators- they are truly amazing in their dedication to promoting high quality scientific communication and discussion.
