As I navigate in overwhelmed by the volume of proposals and discussions and replies. Scrolling through doesn't always get me to the state of the debate.
Wondering if possible to somehow have people classify their comment. Basic would be tags like "factual clarification", "qualified agreement "," request for details"etc.. On a typology of comments... Which could then be shown at the top, or sidebar clustered together..
More advanced would see people tag "agreeing /disagreeing with @whoever", "building on @whoever suggestion", etc... so that threading could happen thematically and with sentiment.
If I can quickly see my opinion has been expressed, question asked, I can like or up vote existing comment instead of adding to the thread. Might also slow the repetit nature of some discussions as new people get dragged into battles.
