  That is precisely (and once we've got actual, written instructions also 
explicitly) what the curators are suppose dto be doing. Incidentally, 
everybody is already able to do the checks for spam and malicious/illegal 
content, which you only need to be logged in as a user to be able to do. That 
functionality is in the Details box on the right hand side of any product's 
page.

  Exactly, the curators are there to help ensure that the stuff that shows up 
Plasma and other apps' dialogues will, in fact, work. Just because we might 
possibly think something is dumb doesn't mean there isn't loads of people out 
there who might very well appreciate a bit of that exact flavour of dumb in 
their lives, and they should totally be allowed to go for it ;)
