I was perusing through the Discourse feature and moderation lists while thinking about various enhancements that could be made to the platform.
I stumbled across this post that was focused on how implementing various moderation features to the League of Legends chat dropped the number of offenders down 40-50% and generally improved the chat space. This got me thinking - could you use machine learning to proactively moderate a post?
As a user is typing, their text could be analyzed for toxicity, and a warning might let them know that what they are typing may be flagged after they post, perhaps helping them to re-word their post.
Has a feature like this been proposed already? Is machine learning being used anywhere else on Discourse?
