Up to a point. However, there are a number of Mozilla hackers who would
certainly agree that you can have too much of this particular good
thing. Which was the point of the discussion.

Implementing moderation would be another further mistake in the same
line. People would argue about moderation, demand meta-moderation,
complain that their important comment was getting ignored because a key
person had a threshold set higher, etc. etc. This is a can of worms we
really do _not_ want to open.
