There is a reason why there is no dislike or -1 button. This only lead
to mobbing of "most disliked persons", and that possible useful
discussion about tags to be hidden away in yet another discussion

Maybe removing the private message function in osm.org (like
wikipedia) and replacing it with a forum would be enough. This has
several advantages, such as a possibility to spot predatory behavior
on new comers.
