They seem to think the position means automatic respect, but somehow missed out that it also means a whole lot of works.On top of this they have no idea that, in fact, "love and respect" are two of the hardest things to get as a GM, you're more likely to get lots of hate every time you punish a player, or, play a part in a choice that was for the good of the server but perhaps not what a good deal of people desire.I think those who flood that section with applications do so with, probably, innocent intentions. They just want to be popular and loved and maybe be able to show off. They are simply failing to realise that things don't work the way they hoped, and sadly, if they do get hired, they're in for a very rude awakening.

I've had a lot of players say "Oh I would love to be a GM you get everyone to talk to you blah blah" not taking into account most of the time people talk to you it is to complain about something or demand something. My favorite is always "Well why does blah blah take you guys so long, it isn't really THAT hard."

And sometimes people assume that "Oh, no my friend is a GM, I can get away with things" so when they end up banned they blame you for allowing it to happen...
