I think a great feature on that site is the user's ability to "ignore" certain posters. This means I can hit a button and put them on my ignore list, which means none of their posts show up on my browser. This would also give you added info in seeing who gets ignored the most. This might then alert you to potential spammers and repeated bullshit posters. Also, The Motley Fool allows us to "recommend" posts, which then show up on the title page. I know how many responses there are to certain topics and if they're worth reading (based on the number of recommendations). These are equalizers of sorts that help keep people somewhat honest. Check it to see what I mean.
I agree ,but what would be the cost? On another topic how many of you use the search option at the top? I try to use it ever time I leave GameBanshee.If it would help to pay for something like this i believe everybody should do this, but this is only IMHO.
