What if there were a little icon, like the "new posts" icon or the little flame that marks hot topics, that would show up when a critical number of readers marked a thread as an argument or an echo chamber or a black hole or whatever?

Interesting idea. Possible buttons:

  • Actually useful
  • Teacher, yes/no?
  • Existential crisis
  • Off-topic
  • Off-off-topic
  • Instant classic
  • No, I was wrong, not instant classic
  • Marx Brothers had nothing on this
