Removing tonality and body language from a discussion makes it completely inefficient to determine the seriousness and point of view of a speaker. If you want to have a good discussion do it in person. This solves the problem of self-created viewpoint bubbles too. At some point we need to face the fact that the internet is not a magic solution to every problem and in many cases makes all of us dumber and less human.
