Here's a simple solution to this whole moderation hammer: add a downvote for poor comments (ala Reddit). The spam and garble comments will automatically be moderated by the community as a whole.

Turning HN into Wikipedia Moderation Politics is not a smart idea.

There are down-votes. You just don't get the ability to down-vote until > ~500 karma (it may be a bit higher now).


There already is downvoting, it just isn't enabled until you hit a certain karma (I think 500, could be completely wrong as it's late and I'm tired)


HN already have this.
