I keep wondering if a way to assign reputation in the Internet would be a cure to the issue of the bullying, a way to help people filter the bully background noise from the enriching dialogue.
Such reputation would be given a starting value based on education and be curated with the weighted interaction with other people. Reputation could be inherited from one social media to another.
Attacks/disagreements from a high reputation majority of people would, expectedly, be open to dialogue and to enrichment for both parties and likely lead to an increase of reputation at last.
Those attacks/disagreements directed from a low reputation majority of people would likely not provide a ground for dialogue neither alter the reputation of the bullied. Thus could be easily ignored.
I am not good on technicalities, but I guess the reputation scores ought to be stored encrypted and reputation transactions ought to be secure. Maybe using the Bitcoin backbone.
