I agree, thats pretty much what I was getting at. I favor a systemic solution, not banning sites. The problem isn't that people submit bad stuff, its that the community upvotes it and has no ability to filter it.

I'd like to see tagging support in the software. I think that would go a long way towards helping. It just might be a long time before someone implements it...


I see this often in forums that don't have tagging, where users say, "tagging will fix this!"

I haven't seen so many forums that use tagging where it actually works in a very useful way.
