Reduce the abuse

Summary

Input gets a non-trivial amount of hate speech and other abusive responses. Per our community guidelines and our legal notices (both are linked to in the footer of Input, we should be deleting or redacting egregious examples.

Up until now, we had no good way of identifying and dealing with such things. This project will yield the infrastructure to allow us to measure and deal with inappropriate Input content.
