Everyone on the board can be a mod. By reporting any post that actually damages the board or good discussion
The reaction time in the OTC is very slow because there are inadequate number of responsible watchers able to quickly dismiss the unnecessary into the garbage pile. Waiting hours or even days to delete rascist threads is unacceptable.
The reports are not anonymous... the system admin and/or mods of the particular forum can see who reported whom.
To respond to gts's comments above, I have learned just not to look in many threads because they get so caustic. I guess its a choice and an unfortunate one to be forced to make. However, it is a by-product of this kind of avenue of open communication and I am not sure that it can be mitigated unless you have full time baby sitters.

Something else: There's a whole subforum about the NBA drafts. How about moving the hundreds of draft related topics posted in the "general NBA" forum in there, so that the "general NBA" keeps its real meaning?
