I suggest a rigorous post approval process...

...where the moderator or 'Forum Coordinator' screens every single post for appropriateness prior to its being allowed up on the board. Also, if for some reason this moderator or 'Coordinator' disallowed a suggested posting, the submitter could then email back and forth with said coordinator arguing the case for the questionable post to be admitted to the Forum for a period of up to one week or 100 emails, whichever came first.

In addition, the screener would be required to maintain a toll free OTD Forum hotline, where he could argue with disgruntled forum participants and answer any questions relating to posts or just about anything at all for that matter, and then transcribe these conversations, for posting elsewhere on the Forum as interesting fodder for the OTD viewing public's entertainment. Sound good?

Granted, this system would create a lot of work for the person responsible for the screening BUT as compensation, he would also have first shot at any of the terrific items potentially offered up for sale. I believe this would be more than fair.

Just my .02 worth!
