Play nice! How the internet is trying to design out toxic behaviour

Civil Comments, a startup that looks to remind people of the impact of their behavior online and encourage constructive criticism and harmony instead of negativity and bullying, is piloting its latest software which requires users to rate select comments from other users on quality of argument and civility before publishing their own post. The final step in the process is asking users to then rate their own comment for civility and quality of argument, giving them an option to edit prior to posting.

Think before you post.
