"it is tempting to think of a "Migrate to Discourse" button for certain questions on stackexchange sites like arqade that would actually be suitable for continued discussion." I dislike this as some actual signal might escape to the other thread, and similarly it'd encourage people to start noisy discussions where noise is less tolerated, as they know it would be a jumping off point.
"A child's reaction to the world and attitude/personality are almost entirely genetically programmed." Do they not teach nature/nurture in grammar school these days, or are you just willfully ignorant?

The stupidest thing about this idea is the "Wouldn't it be great if you spent less time thinking about whether the person is being untruthful?" Because it assumes implicitly that * Your adherence to "Truth" automatically means that others would adhere to the tenets * That all people are capable of telling truth from lies (personality disorders, etc.) * That people capable of telling truth from lies would consider your truth a truth and not a lie (politics, philosophies, religion, etc.) * That it's possible to narrow down solid Truths, as mentioned earlier the incapacity most people have towards opinion.
