Discussion in another thread (about how trolls apparently drove Roxy away from Sherdog) made me wonder what if the UFC forum was separated into a "free to troll" and a "civilized discussion" forum? Sherdog seems very self-aware that it is full of trolls. Contrary to what you might expect, I am not even against trolls. Everyone needs to let off some steam and aggression once in awhile and a place to do that might not be a bad thing. At the same time, it is also nice sometimes to have a civilized discussion with people who are interested in and capable of doing the same. Clearly, the two cannot coexist. So what if there were two forums, one where you're free to troll and another for civilized discussion? Also I'm curious about ideas for a democratic process by which people can gain or lose the privilege to post in the civilized discussion forum that does not rely on mods? Maybe, for example, there is a "dislike" in the civilized discussion forum that causes someone to lose privilege to post there for a certain amount of time if they accumulate too much in some time window?
