    One of the many complaints I see off and on here on the forums
    are when another poster takes a thread that was about one subject
    and turns it into another.

    So I propose a threads creator moderation of each thread if the
    original poster wants to go through the trouble.

    If it can be set up so that all posts first go to the originator of the
    thread so the owner they can then do one of two things; either
    accept the post or send it to another board called the trash heap
    or some other name, with a time limit for action.

    This way those posts that the owner feel are worthy and on target
    will be the only ones everyone sees in their thread.

    The trash heap will be where everyone will see all posts denied,
    and that way everyone will be able to see how fair each moderated
    owner is.

    This could be done on a single board first as a trial without regard
    of subject matter as a test run. I think it would be painful for those
    that want to moderate their threads. Posters could have a choice
    a switch they turn on if they want to continue to moderate or not.

    Just an idea.

    That the originator feels is worthy? Sounds like the death of good debate and conversation.

    I say a strong nay to this idea.

    It wouldn't be the end of good debate since all posts are revealed;
    however, it would reveal one thing, how someone filters others ideas,
    and it would keep the topics side issue free for those that care
    enough to monitor.
