Would DN be better as 'invite-only' again?

    There seems to be two issues being discussed here: the rise of spam, and negative users. Although the first issue can easily be solved with becoming invite-only, many of these negative users have been here a while.

    I've folllowed DN for quite a while, even prior to starting an account. As DN grew, I feel like there was a sequential growth of users that only ever post negative, snarky, and thoughtless comments. This really changed the previously friendly, welcoming, "Be nice" aura of DN that existed before.
