Or maybe clamoring for nothing -- it's just not that hard to ignore a
thread ....

Frankly, I think the bigger issue is all too human -- we get sucked in and
participate when we really know we shouldn't (or maybe that's just me).

And I'm having a hard time figuring out how moderation would actually
result in the "good" discussion we really want in an example like the
"beautiful is better than ugly" issue, without someone trusted individual
approving every single post -- I don't imagine anyone wants to do that.

Let's just keep it on email -- I, at least, find i never participate in any
other type of discussion forum regularly.
