The guys behind StupidFilter hope to somehow clean up the Internet and do away with poorly made user content (like this site but without the quality found here). Sounds like the Nazis are back.
Seriously, the whole point of this grand Internet is so that we can put whatever the Hell we want to on it. No, its not always great content. Often it is terrible but its sometimes funny or thought provoking or heart wrenching. The quality content makes it to the top through a rather democratic process. People often give high fives to what they like and then more people see it, pushing it higher. Of course you don’t always find the best work at the top of the list but I frequently have.
