 From a bystander perspective I'm all for moderation and reducing the 
noise.  Even people who have their posts moderated would likely be 
understanding that it's for the greater good.  Lets call it peer review 
instead of "moderation".

imho someone with some guts just needs to do it so this doesn't turn 
into a bikeshed discussion
