I think we have lost the ability to have civil discourse in America. I want to build a site where we can have discussions about social and political topics but without being abused having the conversation devolve into just name calling and finger pointing.
Does anyone think there would be an interest for something like that?
Idea 1: When discussing a topic, if attacked someone can flag a user and comment. Then the users in the discussion can vote to see if the offending user can take part in the discussion from that point forward.
Idea 2: If a topic gains popularity to a certain trigger point, and one side of the discussion is overwhelmingly in favor, automatically trigger a petition created on the WH website.
