    I think you've hit on a major problem with discussing issues like I/P here.

    Unfortunately, as people try to game the system to remove viewpoints, everyone becomes unhappy.

    What Kos is doing, in a way, is moving from a single-source content creation model (kos & the FP) to the distributed content creation model (having FP'ers post on the recent list). While we're all supposed to have our own blog here and treat it as such, it rarely works that way in practice.

    IMHO, a better system would be a distributed model of content creation, with each author having full moderation control over his/her content, with content discovery methods (FP) determined by sole community action.

    This solves the problem of moderation (responsibility of author, as it is with most blogs), but introduces a problem with recommended material.

    A "guiding hand" moderation approach might be the best, especially when it comes to content promotion to FP streams, and a separate comment system that interleaves comments there with comments on the creator's blog, a one-way street so to speak- leaving moderation duties simply to the site administration.

    FYI, this is all based on an upcoming project, but the ideas for DK that would be practicable (distributed administration/moderation) would still hold, with only egregious cases being removed.

    Again, a great exploration of the difficulties of moderation, and a very very good exploration of anti-semitism.
