I have read on this forum many times why D has fail and will 
never succeed.Such posts is unacceptable at least on the D forum. 
You an do that outside this forum but on this forum is completely 
unacceptable to me.

stack overflow has a voting system. We can add a voting system 
that can help the people in charge of the forum to take decisions.

(1)We can force people to select options when reply to post-such 
as relevant,on topic, out of topic

(2) we can allow people reading the post to also vote by just 
clicking a button.

We need some level of moderation on the forum
