Kill the moss, aerate the lawn (corer) or a spiker will do, throw some sand down the holes, rake it and throw a few handfulls of grass seed around, job done.
My old boss used to always swear by spreading lime on the lawns too, but to be true i never really noticed any difference.

(I knew the answer, but used google to find the document )
A quote from the Penn State Turfgrass Department, shows many influences:
"Attempts to get rid of moss are rarely effective
unless a dense, actively growing turf is established in
its place. To control moss, you must carefully consider
the reasons why it began to grow in your lawn. Moss
usually thrives as a result of conditions that are not
conducive to good turf growth, such as shallow, rocky
soils; poor soil fertility; low soil pH (acid soils); heavy
shade; and excessive moisture. If any of these factors
limit turf growth, moss can invade the lawn and
Taken from :
They mention lime, but when I had my Pennsylvania soil tested (by Penn State), they indicated I needed lime. I don't remember the exact ratio, but it was on the order of a few TONS per acre!! So if you have tried lime, perhaps you never used enough? I settled on putting a couple bags of crushed limestone on each year for the "good parts" of the lawn. The parts I don't bother with are full of moss.
I also agree with the aeration, that advanced my lawn significantly when I used a tow behind plugger in the fall and then early spring. Major improvement!
