What about a sort of combo.. Maybe give non-subscribers the chance to post, but it doesn't go up until a subscriber either approves or rejects it.
I'm sure the subscribers will probably work their way through the queues of messages from non-subscribers pretty consistently. The non-subscribers get to be heard.... probably... if they want to make sure they're heard, then get a subscription.
This would work IMO until some idiot decides to automate/script his troll posts, but that's getting closer to an outright attack, and something can probably be done when that happens.. If not though, oh well.
