What do you think of DebateIsland's new 'civility' feature?

Debate Information


DebateIsland has just introduced a new 'civility' feature, preventing inconsiderate arguments from being posted.
Personally, I'm not happy with AI deciding what's considerate and what's inconsiderate. Debra AI is great, but it has its limitations. And I don't want those limitations to get in the way of my posting.

    So many are not civil, on this site. Nothing is ever done, about libel or abuse.

    I agree. But what do you think of the feature? Is it helping to reduce inconsiderateness? Or is it just an annoyance?

    Thank you. I hate it, because even when I am being civil, my comments don't always make it.

    ***** Nothing is ever done, about libel or abuse.

    Yet this was brought in to stop abuse so that’s something , 

    Lucky for you nothing is done about libel

    @YeshuaBought Mute Dee if you care so much. I am honestly tired of your trolling and drama

    why so serious?
  • I agree it's a good thing due to the lack of high quality. I mean there is good quality here but right now it seems a lot of the times people are acting like obnoxious children. To me, it's not about quantity; it's about quality. Funnily enough, I think that's also how most webmasters work and do note this is a relatively new site. I am actually quite optimistic that this site will have many more good things to come. I think there might also be a consideration in place to automatically prevent irrelevant off-topic posts in the future too.

    I have done nothing wrong, and stand by what I said. You don't have the right, to lie about me, and I am reporting you, for abuse.

    Debra AI was added a couple of years back, to reduce the need for moderators I presume.
    The civility feature, however, is fairly new.

    We are honestly looking a scenario where robots could have extreme dominance over human society. This sounds like a dystopian society that nobody would like to live in.

    That may be true, but here's the thing: the robots do a better job than the humans. As humans, we like to be in power, but we would probably be better off if we handed some of the power over to the robots.

    And if you're worried about robots taking over, don't worry because our main concern is that they do whatever they're told and never rebel, even if they're told to go out and kill people. You see, this is why I'm not happy in relation to killbots.

    @XIj_dolphin_473 This is a dangerous point of view. It seems fatalist and i would recommend seeing a psychiatrist about this point of view.

    Well your point of view seems old fashioned and archaic. Robots do many things for us, which have improved our lives in many different ways. I am not fatalist, I am pro-automation and pro-humanity. We may look forward to a future where we do not even have jobs, and robots provide our necessities. @JGXdebatePRO

    This thing is even worse than I have feared.  When you quote a post, it includes things said in the quote as part of the civility of the reply.
