    You say "moderation" but what you actually want is censorship. You're not fooling anyone.

      pingouinator Do you expect people to pay for a community like this? Strawmen, accusations and brigading. Sorry but no.

      Michael have you considered selling a week long exclusive to benchmark articles to sites like LWN? High value content is better suited there, really..

        I don't really remember seeing much trolling or noise in lwn comments, maybe I missed something.

          xorbe That’s my observation as well. I believe the correlation between a mature community and willingness to pay for content is pretty solid.

            I can read Michael's content and forums for free just by setting up an account and also ad block. I pay and tip because I learn a lot from Phoronix, not because it meets some nebulous guide to moderation. He earns the pay by providing timely and worthwhile content, not by his ability to moderate forums.

            Other than a few outliers, Phoronix forums is pretty well behaved overall.

            I don't mind him asking for dough periodically because he provides a lot of value.

            On a serious vein, if you seek a mature community to discuss Linux, I would form a local LUG and fork your moderation standards to it and see how well it works. That is not being snarky, that is the Linux way. If you don't like the spin, fork it and do it yourself.
