The whole potential of MaidSAFE will be its impact on what currently comes under the heading “Off-Topic.”
The idea that the average hacker or engineer or person aware enough to check out this site needs their hand held on telling science from pseudo science or help with contextualizing or calculating odds on the paranormal or spiritual is laughable.
Short of core MaidSAFE staff, who is to say what is actually related or relevant or potentially relevant to MaidSAFE, its not a task that can be reasonably delegated to an enthusiast mod. Maybe a retired judge or retired professor, someone with maturity. Short of that the risk is high of silly games with moving posts around.
In my opinion, the site doesn’t need an editor, the point of the site is not prestige but communication and idea formulation and evaluation. There is a creative alchemy in cooperative efforts. The off topics may be noise or venting in some cases but it may be part of the creative process. It need not detract when its easy to switch off and does not take up the bulk of the forum entries.
