There's room for interesting tools here, for sure. Metafilter makes good
use of timeouts: one to three day lockouts that amount to "go and cool
down for a while". BoingBoing and Making Light sometimes use
"disemvowelling" - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disemvoweling - as well,
though I find that one kind of distasteful.
In any case, line between passionate debate between strongly-held
positions and abusive behavior can sometimes be fuzzy, but it's usually
pretty obvious when someone's decided to plant both feet on the wrong
side of that line.
