A Proposal that is not even slightly modest...

Given that people are not going to be banned from conventions, or significantly shunned; given that under the shouting and daft threats and wrong actions and endless accusations of bad faith and acts of bad faith; given that people are threatening each other, or silencing themselves for fear of consequences from people who may be tempted to abuse power, but probably mostly won't; given that most of the remedies proposed, from TOS wars to consumer boycotts are liable to produce a decade of toxicity- what we have is vastly more cluelessness than malice, vastly more idiocy than bigotry, we need to find ways forward.

This is one useful idea which I commend to your attention.

Might another be some sort of peace process along the lines of South Africa's Commission for Truth and Reconciliation?

Later To which the response would appear to be 'clearly not'.
