I'm working on a side-project to build the perfect forum for political (and other) debates.

It's called Gruff and the goal is to build a troll-resistant (or, really, troll-ignoring) site that allows people with opinions to build a canonical list of arguments around a specific debate and come to a consensus around the reliability of each argument.

It's kind of an absurd goal, but there's not a whole lot out there that is trying to do full-featured, social, pubic debates on any topic so it's worth a try (Wrangl has smaller aims, but a great interface. And there's a genre of crowdsourced public policy sites that address a single question that have some parallels.)

Disclaimers: it's ruthlessly alpha-quality, has many bugs, lacks many features, doesn't really have much of a UI yet. Feel free to use it and leave feedback if you want to.
