I've always admired Slashdot's moderation system. This question of link drops essentially comes down to needing more distributed moderation, because sometimes there are grey areas where somebody has to make a judgement. The question is, what can WebmasterWorld take from that kind of system of earned mods points given out randomly?
Whitelists may seem fine, until the whitelisted sites introduce new linking policies or UGC sections, and you get a whole new dimension of spam opening up.
