But, I feel that moderators would put a bit more time and effort into investigating whether or not something is stolen.
If some users don't recognize something as stolen, and we scout that user, it might end up buried under hundreds or thousands of other submissions (perpetuating a problem that previously existed) and will only be discovered by the if the track gets posted in the Clean-up thread.
What I would like to see is a "Report stolen audio" feature for unscouted users - or, maybe, for every user. Rather than relying on the Clean-up thread, the 'report' system would bring flagged audio to the attention of the mods. And perhaps even 'hide' that user or submission from the unscouted list until a mod takes action.
