Auto-checking quality of language in posts?


(Michael Downey) #1

Has anyone thought of integrating more opinionated language checking into Discourse, to (hopefully) catch a lot of offensive, hurtful discourse before it starts? For example, something that would work similar to http://alexjs.com/

Seems like this could really go a long way in reminding folks who inadvertently post stuff that hurts others. Thoughts?

I know that @erlend_sh was talking with PerspectiveAPI who I believe do stuff along these lines. Not sure where that discussion ended up though.

Yes, you should take a look at this:

@deevolution is still working on it.

Alex looks interesting. The plugin we’re making with PerspectiveAPI could perhaps eventually ge generalized to work with othe APIs. It will at least provide a handy example implementation.
