Each (human) user reading the site is a moderator. A small group of 
staff couldn't possibly check every post, so empower the people to 
moderate instead!

When you post something, others can up-vote or down-vote your comment 
using "mod points" - comments with a very low rating are collapsed in 
the conversation tree out of view. There will always be spam, but the 
user-moderation keeps it in check pretty fast.

Users get mod points by posting informative comments (up-votes) and 
maintaining a good "Karma."

Most active posters use a registered account, but you can post as an 
"Anonymous Coward" if you don't want to burn your Karma or just want to 
stay anonymous.
