    Right now we have a dictatorship (or at best a representative democracy).

    Slashdot style moderation is democratic.

    Community moderation is power to the people.

    A digg style moderation system would be a lot easier that slashdot. You only have to keep a count on the posts, no individual mod points. You can also choose to block specific trolls (yay!).

    Most community moderation systems suffer from groupthink and the tyrrany of the majority however. It'd be an interesting experiment though.
