Re: setting to moderate every thread a member starts #suggestion

Dave Wade


As others have said, in most its usually people who need moderating, not topics. In most groups there are one or two vocal individuals who need careful management.

They divert threads off-topic and hijack sensible discussion. Even then they are, if membership is not moderated, prone to opening new accounts….

.. so what I am saying is that whilst I can see some benefit in it, I am not sure it has general and wide spread utility…

Of course. But that's not a reason to throw in the towel. You may as well recommend doing away with moderated threads completely because people will always find a way around them. Is that what you are advocating? Because that's the logical conclusion to your objection.
