    I love the idea of feeling safe in discussion with civil members!

    People could offer their overall view of a particular issue in a thread, with evidence and so on for their view. Then people can discuss it.

    Isn't this something which should be happening in all threads?

    I'm a little worried that setting up an invite-only forum could create the appearance of an 'elite' in-group who convene to ponder issues without interruption from the 'deplorables'.

    I'm also concerned that valid (and invalid) alternative opinion will be filtered out leaving an echo chamber.

    Yes, that’s what I meant, as in rather than exclude other views a person making a thread on a topic they got ‘shot down’ for could offer their evidence up front, and be prepared to consider other opinions/defend their own. It was clear in my head when I posted lol.

    I like the idea. I don’t mind differing opinions. But that shouldn’t lead to incivility, reports and the like. Pleasant discourse should be the norm.
