The problem with Zope.org is not the fact that anyone can post, but
that it has no real, day-to-day management. Never had, and I doubt it
ever will have. There is a Brazilian saying that goes something like
"a dog with two owners will starve". Zope.org has two owners: Zope
Corp and the Zope community.

If we have editors, it's no problem to manage and monitor user
contributions, and the site will greatly benefit from those. If we
have no editors, the site will not thrive, with or without user
