Actually, the mod should be able to suggest a new subverse and OP should approve. If OP doesn't approve within a timeout period, post is deleted.

Just to keep the balance of power weighed more towards the OP and help keep mods more like friendly janitors from disneyland.

I think this would work a bit better.

What if OP doesn't approve?

What is the point of a timeout period when the mod has ultimate say and all a user can do is quietly acquiesce?

How about restricting mod actions to those posts that fall beneath a certain threshold of downvoats? That at least gives ultimate power to the user base and prevents mods from abusing their positions by moving posts they may find objectionable.

I would propose that the post end up hidden, and the user can choose whether or not to accept the new subverse, or possibly choose a subverse of their own preference to send it to. This seems the least destructive, at least to me.

I agree with this approach much more.
