We have Red Diamond threads were the moderation is allegedly tougher than standard. Why not experiment with the anti-Red Diamond - specially designated threads where there is very little moderation? Those that choose to participate in the thread know that the discussion will be a bit more of a free-for-all. With the trolling and flaming directed there, perhaps there might be less of it in the standard threads. If the anti-Red Diamond concept is more or less popular in use than the Red Diamond concept, it might give the moderation team a better idea of what the community really wants.
