But I know it won't happen. I have seen it suggested before:
The ability to down vote posts, like Reddit has.
I can't tell you how nice it would be to do that, to have a way to respond without words, because this place is an echo chamber, on both sides. It seems that engaging in a discussion can't happen with far too many people, because those people are not comfortable listening to voices that don't say the same things they are saying.
I didn't put this in the rant forum, because I am not really ranting. It's just sad. We cannot have any kind of unity when we spew our beliefs then stick our fingers in our proverbial "ears" and refuse to listen to others.
Listening is a virtue that is becoming far too rare.

...I don't see us lasting the year under the current circumstances.
More and more ad networks are deciding not to run ads on sites with comments. Our entire site is comments.

I say go for it. Downvoting allows forum gangs to deligitimize comments and certain points of view.
It would run off what little opposition to right wing groupthink there is on this forum. The transformation to the borg will be complete.
