I’m more arguing about solution-finding that “no you’re wrong it’s better 
to get stuck”.

However I’m still dubitative about the fact a single person could get ALL 
A PROJECT project stuck alone, without exception.  If the only way is then 
to make the person gone… well that’s then a fragile project with a fragile 
social structure…

even if exclusion looks like it solved anything, to me this is only 
appearance… in a world where cointelpro existed… I wish we would work to 
more resilient social structures.

It is different in that that anybody have the free choice of moderation, or 
not.  You could have your own moderation filters overriding those of your 
trusted friends, you could change the amount of trust you give to each, 

The simplest thing is a boolean: moderation / no-moderation.  That already 
would be really good.

Only then people would begin to actually realize that moderation is 
subjective, and not obvious.
