I watched a trial of this on another forum a couple of months ago and it didn't last a week. What happened in that case was people just negatively voted for people they didn't like so their posts were voted against regardless of whether they were relevant or not. So in that sense, self-moderation didn't work. Another way it didn't work was that users just couldn't be bothered with it.
Interesting :) I've seen it work several times though, you aren't suggesting people would do such a thing as vote posts up and down based on their personal opinions of the poster and not the content of the post on pf are you ;)
I see your point, pf is strange in this sense (to me any ways)
There is another way you can "self-moderate" when it comes to posters like noimmigration, just don't react to them. :)
I agree to some extent but if you have strong feelings on some topics such as child abuse and rape etc it is difficult to hold your tongue. (or should that be fingers)
Thanks for your input PD

Who said it was broken?
I just said it's something I'd like to discuss.
