Imho, not even weird ideas should be rejected.
Perhaps a better idea is to give people a quotum, say, 20 posts per day for everyone, 3 posts per day for 'people with alternative viewpoints'.
At least there should remain room for threads like the one with Tim Golden about polynomials, or else it would become a very boring group.
Other advantage: it allows robo-moderation (i.e. no delays).
