99% of the useless noise in commentariat debates about controversial topics is *distraction* which attempts to censor descriptions/observations/facts by simply changing the topic to a whataboutism or some other kind of distraction.

A wiki that gave a place for every point to be made would fundamentally solve this censor-by-distraction problem on internet forum debates. It would have to be refuted or confirmed on its own merits, without changing the topic with a distraction, thereby fixing 99% of the problems arising from bias.

How does the lack of interest in something that geeky boys like in any way fall under the responsibility of those geeky boys, who have no influence over what non-geeky boys are interested in? It obviously does not, and that is why claims that it does fall under their responsibility sound absurd to us geeky boys.
