Too expensive :(

Until I learn how to MS $200k in a year I can't afford it.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Is it possible that the PGGM thread be taken here?

You misunderstood me also. I was suggesting that instead of simply deleting these sort of things, they can instead become "restricted" to less trustworthy noobs.

Um, how do you plan on measuring quality?

I don't think hat tips are necessarily an accurate measure. Some people may be able to post about deals, but others may have better knowledge of programs, hacks, etc. and are able to communicate them effectively.

Quality posts are pretty easy to see

Its a calculation of hat tips, posts, threads started, date joined, and active log time.

Maybe develop a rubric?

I'm relatively new here, so I probably should not be the one talking. It occurred to me that maybe there can be an option to hide threads from non logged-in users or users with less than a certain amount of posts, so there can be less risk of having things killed.
There is an option to allow only certain users to see a thread on most forums btw.

I highly doubt that it's being employed here, as I've never seen or heard of an access-denied landing page.
