I think a system based on peer pressure that incentives posters to
write good and relevant articles would be a positive feature. I think
newcomers would limit themselves to posting comments to existing
threads untli they become familiar with the list dynamics.
Look at sciscoop.com and of course kuro5hin.org for examples of scoop.
