Otherwise, best keep them out of spaces that are already minefields of piss-poor human interaction.

There's one possible beneficial use case - Youtube.

As a 'minefield of piss-poor human interaction', it's got a bigger problem than Somalia (that's regarding 'minefields', not piss-poor.... Ok, that as well probably). Letting a few thousand loose on the Youtube comments might actually dilute the god-botherers, racists and plain 'ole ignorant and ill-informed pontificating some.

Certainly couldn't make the Youtube comments sections any worse.
