I read an awesome article on Verge that detailed how Facebook moderators faced the nearly impossible task of sifting through Facebook posts in order to remove things like child porn or a brutal murder captured live from public view.This moderation problem isn't isolated to Facebook, because Twitter and Reddit are sites that cater to a wide audience as well, and therefore attract bad actors.
The first question I want to ask so we can speculate(unless confirmed by a Dev.to employee) is, does Dev.to face similar issues?
If not, do they anticipate facing similar issues as the site grows?
What does Dev.to currently do to sanitize user submissions?
How many moderators do they have?
Is a site that is focused on a niche like programming immune to the garbage that moderators have to collect on open forums?
