Yes, Yes.
Please oh please, STOP all the *Bleating and Tweeting* that is ripping
society apart.
The business model of all these bubbly "social networks" is to find things
we disagree on, then fan the bleating and tweeting flame wars as much as
We won't be able to survive this
<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mlRnotq4npw> unless people do the work
required to implement a solution to this problem.
No matter where you go on the internet, even the so-called "trusted news
sources" and any so-called "peer reviewed Journals" someone can just call
it "fake news", as is even evident on this long thread getting off on
polarizing tangents, already.

We desperately need a trusted source of information, which can be achieved
by building and tracking consensus on important moral topics.  Nothing is
censored on Canonizer, but you can't stop someone from creating a camp to
point out how evil a camp is.  And of course the good camps will achieve
far more consensus than the haters in lonely camps, finally achieving some
trusted sources of information.

Just FYI, our 3.0 from the ground up rewrite of Canonizer.com is about to
go live, so it might finally be a bit more usable.
I trust all you guys so here is an early link to our beta version of
canonizer <https://beta.canonizer.com/>.  Do you think this is any better
than the current 2.0 version of Canonizer.com <https://canonizer.com/>?

Nobody can do this alone.  We need help from people to achieve a critical
mass.  Otherwise I fear we will all end up destroying ourselves as we
approach the singularity.
Before you bleat or tweet something questionable, canonize it so people can
have a chance to weigh in on, and build consensus around the most moral

Building and tracking consensus is what I'm working to do differently!
