How do become a moderator:
never ask you to appoint as moderator - if you ask - you never be moderator!
be balanced - troll-resistant! you must withstand at least three bites from troll at once, without changing the heart rate and pressure!
be accurate - minimum of innocents suffered from banhammer
be wise
be cool
be literate
to know at least two languages ​​(know curses, insults words in several languages)
to know whole Steam - for to help users

OP reading your thread I can say you are not moderator material lol, at least not on the steam forums, they need serious people and you don't sound like one :P

You just need to help others in the forums.

If a mod position opens up, then they will ask someone from the forums that they think will fit in with the position, be responsible, respectful and helpful to others.

OP,
Found this from another thread with the same queation.

http://steamcommunity.com/discussions/forum/7/846941710343534858/

"Regarding the OP, the saying back in the day was something along the lines of "Don't ask to be a moderator, the opportunity will present itself if you are deemed worthy."

In other words, if you have to ask... well, just don't ask :p" -ianskate

"Hi everyone. We frequently are asked the question, how do I become a moderator of the Steam forums? I should first say that it is a special, fun, and rewarding, yet serious role. And it is good to see that some of you are interested. But back to the question asked... How do I become a moderator? Well, there isn't an application. Additionally, there isn't any kind of checklist of items to complete. The best advice I can offer is remain an active member of community, help others, and do things to gain recognition (but don't go overboard). New moderators are added in small numbers when a need arises. There is an element of truth to what ianskate said above. Typically, Valve invites you to join the moderating team--not the other way around. Hopefully that answers your question. Happy new year." -Matt

You are chosen to be one and NOT able to apply.

Being a moderator isn't fun anyway.

That is up to the individual himself to judge. Been plenty of fun times as a Moderator. One of them being the rage you get from users. It has it's plus sides.

Don't think so. It is a fair ammount of 'work' though. And Responsibility.

I'm going to bet some of you have a 'i've been called a X' notebook out there, with the best 'compliments' you get from certain people.

You have to be able to re-enforce the full control of freedom of speach and don't tell me only posts that are attacks, personal or otherwise is deleted cause that's a crock. All sub posts pertaining to said post even if it is helpful are deleted to cover up the original post. I could never agree with this, wouldn't be for me regardless of the help I give around here. Being blunt seems to be a target around here.
