I think it is important to recognize the importance of moderating a blog. Whether blogs are restricted or not, there is still a need for a moderator. Posts can contain inappropriate language or be mean spirited that should not be posted publicly. Moderators must perform the following tasks:
- Keep posts clean and move off-topic posts to appropriate categories
- Communicate with unruly members and advise them of the consequences of disruptive behavior
- Edit postings when necessary so that they conform to the forum’s content guidelines
- Delete or move single posts or entire threads when necessary
