Forum Post: Who's running this web site?

Is it possible to eliminate some of the crap thats always on here... It might be possible to have an editor, that would screen out some of the spam, and totally irrational comments and or posts that have nothing to do with OWS... Im not saying to censor differing opinions, or political views etc... It just seems like the senate filibuster, type shit, meant to lower morale, and waste time, might those that started this site be able to take action, and make this website a little better...

I disagree - no Posts or Comments should be "eliminated" or "screened out", nor should Users be blocked (they'll probably just sign up again under a different username, anyway).

If people don't like a Comment, they can vote it down - when it gets to -4 it's hidden by default (but can be unhidden, if required). A similar voting system should apply to Posts, also.

To help Users identify Trolls, Timewasters, etc., a User's Profile should list their Posts & Comments, in reverse order, so everybody else can see, more or less at a glance, what sort of contributions they're making.

I think it would be very helpful if Moderators were identifiable on sight.
