I was just wondering if you guys have thought about implementing some kind of voting mechanism for individual posts, similar to what they have on Stack Exchange sites. (Up vote for good posts, down vote for bad posts.) Might be a good way to allow the dz.com community to moderate itself. Posts voted down enough times could be deleted or hidden and responses consisting solely of "+1" would no longer be necessary. Seems to me this would go a long way in reducing the crapola** moderators and users alike have to wade through. Might also reduce some of the (apparent) antagonism between certain users and certain moderators.
I did a search for similar suggestions, but didn't see any so I thought I'd throw in my input. Take it or leave it, of course, but thanks for listening. :D
**Crapola, meaning pointless bitching, blatantly bad advice, etc, etc.

Yeah we have thought about it and when we get to performing some much needed changes on the site, there's a high probability such a feature will be implemented. We use it on rockclimbing.com, and while sometimes abused by users with personal grudges, it can be quite a valuable tool.
