SUGGESTION: A section of the forum that is like the cornfield but we call it "The Mediation Pit'. The folks who's argument goes viral have a choice to go there or drop the argument and move on talking about something else. People can invite others they are having a hard time with to the Mediation Pit at anytime also - just to keep nasty arguments from spreading all over the board. There is no greek chorus of giddy sycophants enjoying that some people 'got shut down'. That nasty behavior is discouraged. Those in the Mediation Pit can choose a mediator or be assigned one (or more than one). Once they click the 'Peace' button they are returned to the community. People are positively encouraged to use the Mediation Pit as often as it takes for them to work things out with individual posters. Perhaps get an option for instant message chat in that section of the forum. DISCUSS please.
