Moderation is needed because without it, you get /v/whatever. The rules mean nothing if you cant enforce them.

The only thing worse than moderation is no moderation.

I wouldn't go as far as your FDA example, but I agree with the moderation need. Your FDA example depends on the idea that the government is the only body capable of 'moderation.' The store, for example, could moderate what it chooses to sell itself. One store sells venom crap and another doesn't bc its ridiculous garbage.

People will choose what they want to buy no matter what, but the smarter folks won't go to the venom store. The market would weed out a decent amount of those venom shops naturally. Because the FDA dosen't have amount monopoly on research studies, I'm absolutely sure that other entities would do research, and that info would be used accordingly.
