IMO many, many more mods need to be added to the r/bitcoin Reddit.  it is too important, and I realize the same power structure that exists on these boards also exists there.

Decentralize the bitcoin media - as much as we can IMO

IMO:

1)  r/bitcoin is extremely important.  It should have many top bitcoin community members as mods. 

2)  Current Mods: theymos hugolp

3)  I believed there to be some /bitcoin manipulation on Reddit recently.  I was going to report it to the moderators, but frankly what's the point - I believe this forum administration to make very pro-Butterfly Labs moves in all areas, in all ways.  the recent splitting of the BFL thread and labeling it a "troll museum" when the founder is an indicted mail fraudster seems to be without any merit. 

4) I know many in this community "don't want to make trouble" and "want everyone to get along" but as my new friend TJ the Juggler recently told me, "sometimes doing nothing is an action" which certainly applies to things like freedom of speech and the ability to be an outspoken critic without being silenced. 

Let's start with the Reddit IMO.  add 5 or so moderators?  have voting?  bitcoin foundation members? Gavin to start? Bitinstant memebers, bitpay guys, coinbase guys, mtgox guys, get the big boy bitcoin businesses to each have a rep.  I do not want to be a moderator of the /bitcoin reddit and refuse to accept the position, as I have enough bitcoin-media channels that I already control and am likely too controversial to be generally accepted, so this is not a push to get me in there - this is wanting the reddit to be fair.

I do not believe moderators are the answer. What is the exact problem on reddit? Is it scamming?

Wait isn't reddit a self moderation platform, so I see no point in this, plus it is reddit who cares...

Set up a new forum using Discourse.  It is much more interesting to use than SMF.

Introducing constraints to the economy only serves to limit what can be economical.

You can do that by starting a bitcoin forum.

I don't understand the point? I use /r/bitcoin often and I don't see any problem with it.
