Leave it as it is
While I'm a fan of "Presume good intent" it seems unusual to see folks whose entire interest here is in how the CoC is enforced - one rep users with no accounts elsewhere.
The CoC is virtually the core and basis of how the entire network works. The recent changes are also so extensive in their nature that many people feel personally affected. It is no surprise to me that so many people express their feedback.
I'm noticing some patterns already
What kind of patterns? More feedback than usually?
But isn't this a good sign? In my opinion the amount of feedback is huge, but this is wonderful because it shows how important the CoC is and that people actually do care about the health of their favorite site.
We're going to have to deal with a lot of folks thinking they're really clever. There's also going to be folks not as smart as they think they are.
What do you mean exactly? Could you provide examples?
At least for the duration of the current drama, or at least a week or two, could we set a slightly higher threshold for new questions?
I don't think that excluding 1-rep users from discussions would have any positive effects. On the contrary, many interesing and fresh perspectives could never see the light. I fully support daleyepiv answer where they raised very good arguments against that idea that are much stronger than saying there are patterns and not providing any evidence.
What is that really concerns you? Is it the number of posts or their quality? Personally, I didn't see anything alarming and nothing that I wouldn't have seen before. Addressing people is a topic that is about everyone so you can expect everyone to have something to say.
The more people who show their feelings the better, and even with so many questions and answers they are all pretty unique.
