Moderators are so Web 1.0. There are no moderators on Digg or Slashdot. Unnecessary.
Karma is kind of overkill while we're so young and small though. I'm not going to go nuts with the forum modifications until after I get the wiki and the guide running. But first I have to eat some more boudin.
Morbid curiosity, what are the defenses against a "karma bomb" attack or however you want to phrase it.
Say, someone with an egregious opinion, like the "Michael Vick Dogfighting Club" president, comes on here, starts a tumble, and then gets his buddies to karma him up twice for every down vote he receives?
