Re: Why is it even an issue on SE?
I am a moderator but I don't have time for it, which tells us all we need to know about crowd-sourced moderation. My time is devoted to answering questions on my software.
I like SE. I have found lots of usual information on it and I hope I've helped others and I think that the software gets a lot of things right that other forums have failed and the credit system isn't completely flawed.
But that doesn't mean that there isn't a lot of crap there.
