Pointless musing follows:
Is a wiki inherently a ModeratedForum??
A traditional moderated mailing list or newsgroup has these properties:
More common on online bulletin boards is this model:
without #3, so the public sees everything until such time as the elite moderators do their stuff and remove some material from circulation.
A wiki works on this model:
Even where there are filthy steeeenking sysops who are "more equal than others", a wiki is essentially a bulletin board where everybody is a moderator, and everybody sees all comments until such time as some get screened out.
This isn't meant as an apology for superpowerful sysop users, just a self-reminder that wikis shouldn't be treated as unmoderated fora. They are inherently moderated, with some ImpliedResponsibility? on the users' parts.
Yes - if anything they are supermoderated - or at least they can be. It's all about the culture.
