Two things:
1 - It is easy to justify broken behavior (public, unproductive,
emotional fighting) when possibilities are defined in an artificially
narrow manner.

Amongst the many other possibilities are to change to a moderated list.

2 - "success rate" = what? Number of people who publicly admit they
were wrong? Number of people who change their behavior? Number of
times such bloated argumentative threads appear?

I would argue that if there were a success rate worth talking about
these (huge and emotional) threads would cease to exist. Period.
Anything else is failure.

How do you measure the numbers of people who leave offended?
