To Moderate Or Not?
[New text highlighted below]
Right now The Listology is a fairly intimate community that is high on mutual respect. Should it become popular, this will change. All popular discussion sites are either overrun with offensive or off-topic posts or they have implemented some kind of moderation to prevent that from happening.
While I don't think we're at that point yet (so far everyone has handled confrontation here quite gracefully), it seems to me like it might be a good idea to have the "how to implement moderation" conversation now instead of if/when our signal-to-noise ratio becomes bad enough that valuable contributors stop coming back.
Here are some possibilities:
- Don't moderate at all.
Any thoughts you have--even incomplete ones--are welcome, as I try to keep us on track. It is most important to me that the folks that love Listology continue to love it.
