Anyone can but the bar would be raised for the casual troll. I am not so sure about the method of requiring pre-approval but once someone gets $n level of down votes we have a fair indication they are up to no good.

Perhaps life can be made harder for trolls and spammers with little chance of hurting true seakers of knowledge. The community certainly seams to get their number pretty quickly and flag them with heavy downvoting. At least a goal worthy of discussion

Cheers,

    This place is more wiki style than slashdot style. Such is the culture and gosh darn it, I like it.

    As for $n level of down votes, some people, in earnest, don't get it from time to time or for a large spanning period. Good contributions are good contributions.
