    It would be great if we could post a thread and be given moderator status for just that thread. For example I want to ask about hosting at multiple hosts for multiple IPs, but I know as soon as I start that thread, half the folks will post stupid shit that doesn't help. Then whoever comes along will have to sift through a lot to find the gold.

    Even stickies tend to get filled with crud.

    In my case, if someone actually posts a hosting company's name and their experience, it would add to the thread. Everyone else is wasting our time.

    It would be great if I could just click an idiot button to get rid of worthless posts.

    I understand where you're coming from, but do that then those idiots will just start crap threads and delete any dissenting opinion until a mod has to step in (those guys/girls are busy enough).

    IMHO the ability to say what you think / rationalize an opinion against an OP's thread is one of the reasons that this place has never turned into WF/DP. I think that's a very good thing.

    Keep in mind that inflating post count with useless posts is against forum rules - every now and then when i see somebody posting crap, I take a quick look at their post history and if it's just full of 2 word posts like "oh yah" "good post" "thanks for the info" I just hit report and 9 times out of 10 that account is no longer there an hour or so later.....
