Moderating a blog

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
