"Just having that visible presence of moderation, knowing that someone was deleting threads and banning people, turned it around in about a week," Carroll said. "People start to self-moderate. They tell each other off. They start reporting things.

Incidentally, this is the subject matter of a little book called '1984' that you may have heard of. It wasn't meant to be an instruction manual though.

Having some enforced rules and a level of decorum is a far cry from complete submission to and control from authority.

Doing what's written in a contract is also not submission to authority... all in all a pretty strange post by MT Silver
