 +While it is a good idea to have an usage policy and to put in place proper user education, it might not be a totally foolproof solution.

 +It will be very tedious to appoint a moderator to scan every posting.
 +
 +Therefore instead of having the site or the organization to be responsible for it, is it possible to adopt a policy similar to YouTube where the hosting site will remove any objectable materials from the site when it has been informed.
