Stuff like that, no censorship (unless in very severe cases) and no role modeling. The guys chosen for the job are people who have been around for very long, read the forums thoroughly so they know what has been posted, what is in the wrong section etc. I think 5 moderators might be a little overkill though, but at least we can be sure their work gets done this way. Because especially forums like the c&i and the how do I? became a pile of crap lately.
Five might be too much, my line of reasoning, however, was that that way there'd be less work per capita.
