The second thing is a hidden "moderators" category. Its a busy site, and we get postings from all time zones. Fortunately, there are a number of moderators, and between us, we overlap coverage pretty well. If something is blatantly against TOS, it gets nuked instantly. If something is borderiline (and we try and err in favor of the users), it gets locked, flagged, and a note gets dropped in the moderator's section. A second confirmation of it being against TOS, and it gets nuked.
I like this idea.
And generally on moderation, I think WW is going to be my model - I think they get it right most of the time. The tone is set here, it's easy to get a feel of (the tone) IMO i.e. respectful - and that's what I want my forum to be like.
