Friendly Ghost

It's because they just don't trust their audience.

NewPR has gone a similar way. It began as a superb idea, a digg-alike for PR, voted for by PR professionals. Recently it lost its nerve and introduced moderation. I don't know what form that moderation takes but I daresay it includes an element of human involvement and immediately the many-to-many 'democratic' model is shattered.

Like digg and like any massively interactive site - indeed like democracy itself I guess - NewPR and MySpace just need to trust their populations.
