@Cuterr: But I already have Reddit and Youtube!! Just kidding. Great list. Rbutr sounds like a thriving location for trolls, though.

I think this concern is a common one, but let me assure you that the way rbutr works, it is actually very anti-troll. It simply allows webpages to be connected to each other, and the best rebuttal will be voted to the top – so any troll-like submissions will be voted down and lost.

That’s good to know. What if a bunch of trolls start upvoting troll submissions and downvoting real submissions? Perhaps Rbutr does have some prevention against it (don’t have enough knowledge) but just a thought. It’s a common problem with most online voting systems (like the recent Mountain Dew / 4chan thing).

Of course, any system which is targetted by a large group of motivated individuals determined on wreaking havoc will suffer by the event, this is still true for Wikipedia and any other large successful crowd sourced system.

But these sorts of events, and anti-social crowds still fail to undermine the value of the tools themselves. And usually only happen over discrete periods of time which can be contained in one way or another.

General spam and things like that though tend to be controlled by the well intentioned crowd anyway – and of course, we do have (and will improve) systems in place to make this smooth and efficient etc

So in general, background noise trolls and spammers will be drowned out by the well intentioned users, and the burst trolling created by groups like 4chan can be contained and/or fixed once they lose interest in creating mindless havoc

Are you the creator? If so, it’s good to know that you have these things at the fore of your mind. If it works out well in execution, then I have nothing bad to say against Rbutr. Great job in creating it in the first place! I have lots of respect for creators. :)
