This only does the same thing as the final command above, rather than
send you an ale, as you might be hoping. Sorry.

<h2>Moderation</h2>


Fossil forum moderation is easy:

<ol>
    <li>Add the <b>Moderate Forum</b> (<tt>5</tt>) capability to any of
    your users who should have this ability. You don't need to do this
    for any user with Setup (<tt>s</tt>) or Admin (<tt>a</tt>)
    capability; it's
    [http://fossil-scm.org/index.html/artifact/b16221ffb736caa2?ln=1246-1257
    | already included].</li>

    <li>When someone without <b>WriteTrusted Forum</b> (<tt>4</tt>)
    capability submits a post, you'll get a notice on the timeline if
    the type filter is set to "Forum" or "Any Type". It will also appear
    on the <tt>/modreq</tt> page; you might want to keep that page open
    in a tab in your browser, and reload it occasionally to check for
    pending moderation requests.</li>

    <li>On an unmoderated post, click the "Approve" or "Reject" button.
    "Approve" writes the message semi-permanently into the Fossil
    blockchain, from which only [./shunning.wiki | shunning] can remove
    it. "Reject" deletes the post permanently, with no way to retrieve
    it. Be careful!</li>
</ol>
