Something zeezsh said set me thinking. Actually I have long thought that KIA needed decentralising and have made repeated attempts to change things in that direction but zeezsh's continued attacks and accusations against me made me realise this really needs action.
For blogs, I would like to propose that: a) Blog authors have the right to moderate comments on their own blogs to their own tastes. b) Additional moderation requires concensus as per forum rules (see below):
For forum posts, I would like to propose that: a) All calls for moderation or banning be made publicly as a new thread in the 'issues' board. b) That as the one wielding the power to actually moderate, I be banned from making calls for moderation. Possibly I should attempt to remain a neutral party in the discussion to reach consensus, and should be excluded from blocking consensus on such issues. c) That the accuser and accused also be excluded from blocking consensus. d) That if consensus appears unblocked for a certain period of time, the comment can be hidden. After a further period of time it gets deleted permanently. e) That a call for ban initially places the author under moderation if consensus is reached for a certain amount of time, with a full ban enacted after a yet further period if consensus remains. f) Once banned a user needs consensus to rejoin.
