> aside for the goatse cascade that would end up on the page every other update

That's the problem with any open system. There are always losers out there who want the system to fail, and post crap on the page.

If the crap isn't edited fast enough, the general visitor will just stop visiting, as most people don't know how an open system works.

That's why wikipedia works, and that's why emucamp's system failed.

There just aren't enough tech-savvy visitors to keep the system in check for a niche site such as a retro gaming and emulation site.
