This article describes accurately the situation we are in, and 
how better things could be if using some kind of classical 
solution. I wish the problem was taken seriously: this is a 
scaling problem.

I have seen one phpBB forum killed by my own refusal to ban one 
abusive user - it was a friend - experienced people were telling 
me to ban him. That user would jump at every newcomer in the most 
odd way, and very quickly this friendly online community dwindled.

We have a thriving D Discord because the moderation team won't 
tolerate abusive behaviour. The ToS is to follow... the Discord 
ToS. And people do not hesitate before interacting there, as it's 

I think we have a lot to win there.
