There would be 3 or 4 volunteer moderators (not me), who would disallow posts that were off-topic, me too, spam, lacked content, or contained personal attacks. Ideally, the moderated group would set the bar for the quality of the messages. The original newsgroups will remain as the free-for-all wild west that makes them both fun and perhaps a little intimidating for some. While I like the wild west approach, many others clearly find it uncomfortable.
With some irony, I count 5 "me toos" out of 10 posts on just on this thread (at the time of writing. 4 if I'm not being harsh. 50% pure noise and this is a small thread. So you can count this as a me too too!
