What if people could start their own boards, assume deputy administrator responsibilities there, and invite others to join them? And those who were invited could then invite others?

I think if they were "invitation only" there might be less incivility -- and what incivility there is might be more tolerated. Invitations could even be treated like sponsorships: if someone's blocked, their "sponsor" could be, too.

Having designated deputy administrators might enable me to delegate more. And maybe only get involved if someone complains? And if there are too many complaints, I could just close the board.

There would of course need to be restrictions on who could start these boards. Maybe based on how long the poster's been around, how active they've been, whether they've been blocked, etc.

As with PB 2000, it might seem elitist, but it might also help those involved to feel more supported, which is the bottom line...
