You are utilising faulty logic, you don't know the fact this forum you speak of has no moderation is responsible for how bad it is, you don't know sciforums would be like that if it had less moderation. I could easily find message boards with tonnes of moderation that suck horribly and use them as an example of why sciforums should lighten up on moderation. I think sciforums is potentially great, but I don't think the moderating has anything to do with that, it's the diversity of the members. A message board dedicated to racism or saying bad stuff is boring because it's frequented by only one kind of person, not because it's not moderated, but because it lacks diversity. Sciforums has a more varied array of members, that's why it's better, but the moderation at sciforums is only detracting from it's potential diversity.
