Makes a lot of sense, a review process usually picks up most unfair
decisions, and if they slip through there are still further instances
to talk to.

While it may be a big change to some, careful moderation of the lists
may help bring down the amount of flames and trolling a bit. We have
both moderation as well as a review process on the forums and imo the
concept works quite well there. It sometimes really pities me to see
behaviour on -dev that gives you a clear ban on the forums (e.g. clear
personal attacks such as namecalling).
