Can we approve discussion on a forum before they even appear on our main page?

Merry Christmas everyone,

I really wish Ning can come up with this feature so we can have full control on our forum. I am running a small Ning website with over 6,000 members from a small island Country back home in the Kiribati, The Republic of Kiribati.. the problem is everybody knows everybody on the island so when my members have problem with someone they know on my site.. they went straight to the forum and attack that person on the forum. In most cases they often share private information about that person even if something that it is not suppose to be discuss in public.

Now Ning how can i handle this problem? I know the only way to deal with the problem right now is to delete those topics from the forum but sometimes.. it could take me a day or two to check my emails and people are already screaming at me in my inbox because their private information was already exposed to the public..

What can I do Ning?

Thanks and again Merry Christmas and Happy holiday to all Ning Creators...

Hey There! It's not currently possible to moderate all new forum discussions. To force new topic moderation would undoubtedly make new activity go down drastically. To be honest, I'm not sure there's a great answer to a community issue like this one other than moderating out abusive members who violate your community guidelines. 

I think this is a required feature..removing unwanted discussions will increase the quality of the content
