While moderators may become necessary you'd need to make sure that said moderators were scattered around the globe or the board will simply grind to a halt when the USAians go beddy byes. I notice that another one of these spammer's messages has just popped up here. I don't know if it is feasible technically but perhaps moderators might only be necessary for posters with less than five posts.
