COTH moderating has also been through a journey. They learned a very hard lesson that these boards can't be un-moderated if a large-ish section of the public has access. It just becomes a troll-fest, and if you read COTH a few years ago you know how bad it was and how many of the great people who post there now avoided it. It's really been cleaned up. But they still allow a lot of personal remarks and baiting that we learned on Blab go nowhere in terms of a discussion people want to read. Although I guess the "penalty box" means they are tightening up a bit more!
