At an absolute minimum, you need to prune the spam; e.g. offers for 
penis enlargement pills. I tend to feel you should not prune more 
than the absolute minimum. (i.e. it's also a maximum). The slashdot 
self-moderation system is very interesting. IT allows everything, but 
tends to hide the "first post/Natalie Portman/Pour Hot Grits Down My 
Pants" posts. It also makes it much easier to finds the best, most 
thoughtful replies in large threads.
