What to do about rep inflation?

Should the rep limit be raised for access to moderation tools? As the site's continue to grow more and more people will breech the 10k barrier(currently 100+ on SO). I'm not 100% sure that this is a problem, but is there ever a point where too many people having access to mod tools becomes a bad thing?

I think it should be... somewhere around 22,830. – mmyers Dec 29 '09 at 23:03
@mmyers: 22,831 to be exact. – Ladybug Killer Dec 29 '09 at 23:06

The moderator tool for 10k users aren't that powerful anyway. – Georg Schölly Dec 30 '09 at 18:15

I'm sure this is a duplicate but I'm too lazy to search.

To summarize the old discussions: Basically, as the number of questions increases, we need more moderation and we'll get more moderators and we'll end up having a stable moderator/post ratio. Increasing the threshold will reduce the moderator/post ratio.

Correct, but no upvote. I do not support laziness. – Ladybug Killer Dec 29 '09 at 22:59
