I support moderation, but only loose moderation. If you sub's about gaming, and someone posts about cats, well, delete it. But if your sub is about news, and you start deleting posts that support a particular point of view, then that sucks.

Yeah that's about it really. It helps to stay on topic, otherwise we might as well have one big subverse.

Also, on a small sub, good mods can organize events, poll for opinions etc. which is nice. Not to mention the css.

What if your sub is about fat people hate, and people comment that fat people should be treated with sympathy, or less hate.? Is it appropriate to ban people for not agreeing with your views?

I wasn't thinking about that when I wrote my comment. It depends on what the community wants I guess. I think also it's more important for big subs to not be heavy-handed.

People should be able to make obscure rules for their owns subs. However, I agree with "loose moderation" only being applied to default subs.
