Not like this place has Reddit tos to be cautious about. Seems like unnecessary rules to be able for mod to remove whatever it wants.

Because the guy who officially runs this sub and the guy who unofficially runs this sub are both eurocuck, atheist, alphabet weirdos who are only playing at opposition to the left.

That's why. They've been challenged on this in the past, had no good rationale for their actions, and repeated some stale line about "muh platform".

The guy who runs the sub is a sub pretending to be a dom.

You can take the janny out of Faggit but you can't take Faggit out of the janny. This has been brought up many times since this site started and it never goes anywhere because being a censorious faggot gives Dom a hard on.

The rules have been redundantly subjective, almost to old twitter standards. The last row I got into with the mod was over getting a ban for comparing the fbi to redcoats. It’s a joke so just take the piss out of it and have fun.

That’s a bit harsh. The redcoats weren’t nearly so bad as the fbi.

Only because the technology of the time didn't allow it. The red coats would've been just as bad if they were able to.

The kind of person who would be best suited to moderating a forum is often the person who would never seek that job. The kind of person who is worst suited to it often does.

Its not an unpopular opinion, you didn't need to make an alt account for it.

But since you did, you look like a scaredy coward and undermined your own point.

I had to make an alt because faggot mod banned me for posting while a handshake. No I didn’t break any rules, just wanted to change accounts. My original account wasn’t banned either but mod came after me because I broke the stupid rules on a post.

I'd like to push again for adding a pop of color to handshake icons. I did it with It Stylebot and it really makes them stand out.

If we could get rid of handshakes, spam, and porn, that would be a good first step.

You've got it backwards, handshake.

Rules don't give mods the power to ban people, they could do that with no rules at all.

Rules stop mods from arbitrarily banning people (ostensibly) or at least make corruption obvious.

Rules only work when followed and enforced consistently. This also requires the rules to not be subjective too.

kia2 is still a thing on le reddit. It may be wise to 'behave' ourselves here, particuarly as this is public, more so than over on reddit.

There is, for now, some value in keeping the same rules.

sounds like commie (or woman) talk, complaining about shit without providing a reason for it or offering an alternative

what specific rule is the problem and how would you change it?

Realistically we could ditch the vast majority of the rules. No spam, no porn, and nothing illegal is all we need. The current ruleset is just a playground for faggots.

No spam, no porn, and nothing illegal

I've been thinking that for awhile, but the current mods insist on acting like they're still on reddit here.
