...and more then moved on to the forum post above, when I later decided to deactivate his account, which in retrospect looks to have been an even better decision for devtome but demands some suffering (or ignoring) in the thread.

Definitely the lesser of two evils, since this avoids further dilution of generation shares. Plus, now that the new devcoin thread is moderated and I think 90% of us have the troll on ignore, it's a very minor annoyance  :)

Now, back to the matter at hand, what if there were some sort of reward tied to helping "clean up" the wiki? There would be the potential for abuse that we would have to account for (ie: what would prevent a spammer/scammer from marking everything for deletion?) but it would provide some further motivation for the average user to help keep things tidier on the wiki. Furthermore, anything marked for deletion would be exempt from the wordcount for the latest generation shares, which would help stop drivel if users can respond fast enough.

Just one idea, of course, and not yet very fleshed out...but coupled with EmilianoZ's thoughts it could provide an effective deterrent for writing garbage.
