Ain't it the truth.

In addition, what type of people (if any) should be entrusted to enable gated topics, using what criteria (if any)?

Regardless of whether this mod exists, what do you think of the concept being applied to the eplaya?
On the plus side, I would love to create a thread that can't be sunk under a mountain of irrevelant ego-wanking such as current eplaya threads frequently are. I think it would actually enable discourse to return where it is absent today.
On the down-side, some of that ego-wanking involves lots of thread creation which has occasionally generated good discussion despite the inanity of the original post. Also, it could be used punitively at the sole-discretion of the thread creator, so a new conciousness of who created the thread would have to be in the mind of respondents before they post.
What do you peoples think of this? Does 'radical thread responsibility' jive more with the BM culture than 'ownership' of a discussion clash with it?

It's taken this long for the board to pick up speed.
