The Problem: Uninvolved participants can conduct voting brigades, though they do not participate, and are strictly invaders. This can be both purely positive, negative and positive, or both (upvoting, downvoting, or both simultaneously)

The Solution: Elimination of downvoting can help, but another contributing factor that can help create community is to only give voting rights to those that have a specific amount of karma in a community. This can help offset positive upvote brigading too, or, make it slightly more difficult for this to occur.

I call this feature request "No Politically Motivated general subs; explicit identification of political subs"

The Problem: Through incestuous relationships and machinations, a left-wing group of moderators have seized control of many normal subreddits. This has turned many of them into leftist echo chambers, rather than actually interesting subreddits available to everyone. Furthermore, this has led to an attack on opposing narratives in these subreddits and the removal of information, such as the race or religion of a perpetrator. /r/Politics /r/News & /r/Worldnews are examples of these. While generally leftist, there is some of the reverse such as /r/The_Donald/ although it is clearly not generalist.

The Solution: General subs such as news, politics, and worldnews would have to be moderated in an apolitical manner as part of an agreement with the administration, and the administration must keep this intact. The privilege and labor of moderation must be part of an agreement to moderate fairly. General Subs would no longer become the personal fiefdoms of Mods. Politically motivated subs would be permissible, but they would have to explicitly identify as such, and could not be a general sub appealing to all of the userbase. Where possible, Administration would seek to diversify sub moderation by selecting a variety of political views to form a moderation team, rather than an insular group.

Reddit clones will probably accelerate the process.

Once one of them gets traction, it will be all over.

This, and routing changes, have been used to reroute much of the internet's traffic in the past.
