Though Rusty posted the item mentioned above, the quote (and opinions) were mine. I'd posted the item to Scoop, where as any of 5,000 Anonymous Heros will tell you, these meta topics really belong ;-) Rusty referenced (and extensively quoted) the item here on K5.
Much of the moderation system at Kuro5hin is based on ideas I knocked around with Rusty while he was first putting the site together. The Sub queue has gotten better (and works pretty well, most of the time -- I tend to agree with it more than I don't), though it's obviously got some glaring bugs.
It would be very useful for newbies to take a look at the Scoop discussions, the What Now topic, and sid=moderation for some background on why K5 is the way it is -- and what might still make it better.
There is a list of unimplemented features, and there has been a lot of discussion about moderation, submission queue, filtering, and karma. The last tends to be a bit of a hot button.
