That last line.... Hmmmmmmm...

I have a co-worker who is a beekeeper .... bzzzzz. :)

Looks like Dale's new job isn't culling bad people, but creating unlikely friendships? :)

That's one aspect. Really it has switched from pushing down bad people to pushing up good people. It's about cultivating a healthy society. You know how, in well-kept online venue, somebody starts trolling and the nearest five people jump on them to indicate that kind of behavior is unacceptable? Same thing works in meatspace. You need a thriving community to make it work. That means establishing connections between people, teaching them to respect each other, using collective problem-solving methods, etc.
