Forum Editor or CEO

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
This thread got me to thinking what is the best, from a users perspective, model for a Forum. I think the best model could be that of a publication where the Forum owner/manager functions as an editor, or hires someone to perform this function. This model could be why I like WC. Ellis runs it where his role is editor. A publication doesn't reject stories that are unfavorable to advertisers, if the story is true and beneficial to the subscribers, for example. Nor does a publication have a lot of rules and procedures. The more I think about it the more I see WoodCentral as a publication with editorials, news, cartoons (whoops those were banned :) )current events, advertising, etc.

The CEO Forum model is to run a Forum like a business. Maximize profits and manage accordingly.
