Are moderators really reading through every post to determine if its valuable or not? 


Not anymore.

How do we call attention to posts that really suck?

The report button.

  Can we ban people of low intelligence?  Is it right to do so?

We could, but no, that wouldn't be proper.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'

I've no interest in participating in any forum whose rules take longer than 3 seconds to read.

But yes, subjectivity is your main problem: a lot of uninteresting posts are entertaining, a lot of entertaining posts are uninteresting.

Repeat ad nauseum.

Would hate to see this please get legislated into oblivion.

Who gets those reports? The mod of the corresponding forum or the poor admin?

The policy to not remove anything worked when the forum was small. Now that we have thousands of posts a day, we can't afford 50% of them being junk. The moderators are now instructed to be less tolerant of low-value posts.

Some guidelines:

1. Free speech - you can say anything as long as it is relevant and presented in a calm and polite manner. Swearing, SHOUTING etc. make your post more likely to be removed.
2. No zero value posts or threads, like "SELL SELL SELL"
3. No pointless or uninteresting threads.
4. No referral code spam
5. No NSFW content
Amen.

I don't think it is a right thing to ban people just because they say something really stupid unless and until they take to personal insults (though you would usually expect them to)

Bans really aren't given out lightly. You would have to say hundreds of stupid things, and make more than a few personal insults, of which you would recieve warning, so it wouln't be a surprise before you get banned. Posting Malware and such however is a good way to get banned.

Super forum. It's great to be on a forum that isn't reliant on adsense and therefore beholden to their rules. I haven't noticed any moderation and that's always a good sign. Not that it isn't happening just that it's not a huge drama.

Thanks for this sirius. I take it that means we are not allowed to comment 'bump' on certain threads?

After 9 years regular army and a lifetime as an interstate truck driver, I believe I've heard it all, but expletive suffused posts still drive me spare, so I excersise my own form of moderation, if you can't express yourself in a Proper manner than I will simply ignore your post, no matter how relevant, informative or interesting it may be.

I've been part of ( and still am) many forums where offensive language is simply not tolerated, likewise with personal attacks involving race, creed, colour or religion, sexual proclivities or otherwise, yet the debate still remains robust.

Free speech by all means, but with free speech comes responsibility too and a limitless courtesy and respect go a long way.

The Army ain't decentralized. Please ignore me.

So what about linking to NSFW sites? e.g. Sexcoin links to porn websites where their currency can be spent.

That's fine, just mention the links are NSFW. It's hotlinked images that are the problem.

I'm wondering about the altcoin thread. Today it has grown to a crazy number of "alt's" and seems more like a casino of pump&dump- get rich schemes.  What is the reasoning of having this? Maybe to "keep an eye" on the competition?

"We are just fools. We insanely believe that we can replace one politician with another and something will really change. The ONLY possible way to achieve change is to change the very system of how government functions. Until we are prepared to do that, suck it up for your future belongs to the madness and corruption of politicians."
