I've seen and experienced several examples of mis-moderations. Cases where people with high reputation misuse their power to shut down the voice of others, even when there was no intended vandalism or verbal abuse. Such cases suggest that there is an ultimate authority of what is Truth -- those with the power.
For example, a moderator find an answer "low quality" or even "wrong" and they delete the post where no further input from the community is possible. How does one know if the moderator is wrong? No one gets to know.
It seems that with the right voting model, reputation could be allocated perfectly and no moderation would be needed -- even in cases where vandalism or intended misinformation is given.
Do people think it is possible and/or worth trying? To solve this problem solves a > $1Billion dollar problem for the world.
- Do you think it's possible?
- Is the potential gain for the world as high as I think?
