CCP cant force people to people to post good content.
Its entirely up to each individual what they post.
Just like in the game, it completely up to players what content they provide.
Everything that doesn't break the rules, is allowed.
The reason moderation has become stricter on this board, is because some posters themselves took it too far, too often.
CCP has a responsibility to protect its staff and the integrity of its reputation, and of the forum and its participant players.
Your arguments on what mob "moderation" constitutes, is false.
Mobs dont moderate anything, they thrive instead on excess.
Mobs just want to shout louder than the other mob, to drown out their voice.
Whoever shouts loudest, wins.
Doesnt matter who has the better argument, just whom has the loudest supporters.
Definition of mob:
-a large or disorderly crowd; especially one bent on riotous or destructive action
I don't want 100 people making content hidden from me, cos they "don't like" it.
I also dont want 100 people forcing content down my throat, cos they "like" it.
Is that what you want?
I don't give a rat's anus what you do or don't like.
That is your problem, not mine.
Who are you to restrict someone else's content?
Go cry to mommy if someone's views are against yours, and you don't like them.
You want to try and hide in a mob, as one of many, with no personal accountability.
HTFU and engage the opposition on it. Adapt. Deal with it.
That is the EVE way.
A like/dislike button is fine, as a means for players to show support/dissent for a post, but that should not, in anyway shape or form, systemically change post/thread order, or cause hidden/amplified status of any players post.
If you cant be arsed to take the time to contribute content except by simply clicking like/dislike, then that's all you get.
If you want to have more more effect than that, you are going to have to put in the time/effort and get your hands dirty by posting content yourself.
PS: Your aphorism is wrong. Pissing in the wind is when you make a stupid decision and end up pissing all over yourself.
The correct analogy, is pissing into an ocean of ****, and that is certainly more true on Reddit, than here.
