Digg, Reddit, and who's Next? Slashdot?

It does not take much of any controversy for a "community" site to go down in the page of history.
People jumped Digg for obvious reasons (see the link), and flocked into already crowded reddit. Recent controversy in reddit created quite a bit of mess: leading up to the departure of interim CEO. All these things are happening without properly settling the main issues about the trolling, anonymity and a proper balance to be achieved.
Is it OK?
There are few things that happened in reddit that was bit unsettling such as manhunts, personal attacks and victimizations. Therefore, is it OK to have no control whatsoever? Which level of control, if any? Where is the balance?
Oh, where does the freedom of speech lie in this case? There is a saying, "You are free to move until you touch my nose". Well, I just made it up, but think about it.

What do you think? Which one is next? Slashdot?
