#19 Free moderation on your journals


I suggest that the 'comments' drop-down on the journals have a new option: Comments with
free moderation.

Once enabled, this option cannot be disabled.
That is, only the following changes of state are allowed:
no comments->comments
no comments->free mod
comments->free mod

Once enables, the owner of the journal will be treated as if [s]he had infinite mod points, within
the journal, but no karma will result from _ANY_ moderation done within the journal. If this is
enabled after some moderation occurs, the karma changes are reversed.

    I wouldn't mind giving journal authors the power to mod
    their own journals, but we have to think about this.
    Obviously posters' karma should not be affected by the
    journal author's free moderation. Nor should posters go on
    timeout for being modded down too much (or be exempted from
    timeout for being modded up) which means the 'moderatorlog'
    table needs a new column. Highly-rated comments should not
    show up in the top10comments slashbox. Probably other
    changes I'm just not thinking of right now.

    The main advantage is that users would feel more comfortable
    about allowing comments in their journals, knowing they'd be
    able to do something about trolls. Which would probably lead
    to more use of the journal system as a whole.

    Anyway, Rob -- if you agree, bounce this back to me (or
    someone) with an appropriate priority.

    There are so many potential pitfalls with allowing
    this... I'm assigning it a priority of 1 because we could
    do it... but its an awful lot of work. So its a solid
