I moderate a Discord server unrelated to EA, and recently we had a discussion where participants were being dismissive of each other’s POVs and making personal attacks. I think the EA community has better discussion norms than other online spaces I’ve been in, and I wish I could spread them to the other communities that I’m part of to improve the quality of discourse in those spaces. Has anyone tried to bring “EA-like” discourse norms to non-EA spaces? Is it easy to improve a community’s discussion norms?
For reference, my server is less than a year old with about 100 members, ~15 of whom are active, and many members come from the same two subreddits.
