This sounds like a great idea because as it is, everyone makes their own 
judgement as to whether to answer a question, and sooner or later 
someone may supply an answer!

As I understand it, the moderator looks briefly at the content of every 
message to filter spam, so this might be a viable suggestion that would 
not involve Steven in any extra work.

I am sure the work of moderation is considerable, and I think it is 
extremely important that we do not increase his workload - e.g. by 
suggesting he reply to deleted messages.
