The altcoin spammers are now using self moderated topics to remove any honest criticism..

if i post that its a clone my comment is removed by the self moderated topic starter.
they are flooding the forum section with a variety of dishonest and scammy coins
and it reached a tipping where now if we even say what it actually in fact is the comment is removed.

Bitcoin talk i really think it's YOUR time to step up.

Your providing a protected scammer playground and i think you should do something about or accept being held accountable for being apart of all these scams.

I strongly urge the forum staff to at the very least remove the ability for coin cloning spammers to make their ANN topics self moderated.
Because now they can simply delete any comment proving it is in fact a clone for example.
It's bad enough you guys turn a blind eye to user creating an infinite amount of accounts to post new coins with (evading the scammer tag rating system)

Yo forum staff.. step it up or i will do it for you.

thank you for your support.

i hope we can set aside any differences of opinion to agree on this idea people.

once they catch on its too late.. they will abuse it as they are already abusing this place in other ways.
what i proposed i think is far more a benefit than it is a negative if you weigh the pro's and cons..

I do agree. Newbies really get confused when they see a lot of coins. I am also in the same row.

I don't really think it's up to the forum staff to police self-moderated threads - it's too subjective as to what is allowed and what isn't.

I think that if bitcointalk wants to continue to be the premier location for cryptocurrency related information, then user-moderation is key, akin to how slashdot handles moderation. I would love a forum which allowed me to ignore every post with a -1 rating - the legibility would be much, much better.

I honestly doubt this is going to happen though - it would take some serious motivation that to date I've not yet seen from Theymos.
