I'm just curious about this. Can a moderator surpass the daily limit of 20 reviews?

    $\begingroup$ Perhaps the question is "Why?" since you've just confirmed we can. $\endgroup$ – Pedro Tamaroff Jan 12 '15 at 21:27

    $\begingroup$ In general, if the question is "can a moderator do ____," the answer is "yes." (Generally speaking.) $\endgroup$ – apnorton Jan 12 '15 at 22:42

    $\begingroup$ @AsafKaragila Mods can also come into your house at night and leave your milk out. $\endgroup$ – user147263 Jan 12 '15 at 23:10

    $\begingroup$ @Fundamental: I don't have any milk, so they will have to bring their own... $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Jan 12 '15 at 23:14

    $\begingroup$ @AsafKaragila They can, but the question is: will they? :-) $\endgroup$ – apnorton Jan 12 '15 at 23:45
  • $\begingroup$ Wealll, it's a (hopefully benign) dictatorship, albeit an elected one. I guess. If they can do anything. $\endgroup$ – Robert Lewis Jan 13 '15 at 6:56

    $\begingroup$ Moderators can do anything, yuppers. Hopefully they do their anything moderately. One might even commend the saying, "Moderation in all things . . ." $\endgroup$ – Robert Lewis Jan 13 '15 at 7:32

    $\begingroup$ @Robert: But now by induction moderators have to moderate the times they moderate their moderation; but also to moderate the times they moderate the times they moderate their moderation; and so on ad infinitum. This sequence does not converge, and after $\omega$ steps there is still limit! $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Jan 13 '15 at 15:10

    $\begingroup$ @AsafKaragila: Recursive moderation! I like that! Something to keep the authorities occupied and looking the other way! Cheers! $\endgroup$ – Robert Lewis Jan 14 '15 at 6:50

Moderators don't have a limit for the number of questions they can close, nor a limit for the number of the questions they can review in the close review queue.

From here, where you can also see the screenshot of a moderator with 60 close reviews in a day (vs the limit of 40 on Stack Overflow).
