Politics version 7.0 discussion safe space

to the surprise of absolutely no one, politics unchained has quickly become a safe haven for white supremacists to spew their violent, hateful rhetoric in the short time since cheezelawg took over

Good look for 2+2 all around.

This is not true at all.

The forum is now moderated and for the first time the extreme rhetoric is not being allowed

Re: ATF Chatroom, for O/T chat

"Not being allowed" apparently means "left up for the world to see"

And clear modding instructions that it's against the rules now. These rules will be enforced.

The forum is moving from one where people were free to make these extreme posts to one where it isn't. About time too.

Re: ATF Chatroom, for O/T chat

It's Chez Chez now! Or is that Chez-It. All pc all the time, can't go wrong with policies like that.

I like Cheez-Its a lot too, they have some great varieties. Only snack in moderation, ofc.

Yes, if by "enforced" you mean "ignored".

Why not delete the posts if they aren't allowed?

Re: ATF Chatroom, for O/T chat

I'm open to considering it but I'm far more interested in stopping it happening then worrying about the past. That requires rules so I'm introducing rules.

Re: ATF Chatroom, for O/T chat

It's pretty clear you have no intention of enforcing any of these "rules."

I'm not allowed to eat chocolate, so I only have three chocolate bars per day

They diminish over time though guys! Racist ******* white supremacists definitely won't find those posts and figure 2+2 is a safe harbor for their crap because THEY DIMINISH OVER TIME!

Re: ATF Chatroom, for O/T chat

so noted gaslighter cheezelawg is already pretending those posts in his forum ... well, they're still there, but there also simultaneously not their, fixed in some super position of there and not there due to the passage of time diminishing their thereness.

Glad we got another SMP troll to mod unchained. I'm sure it'll go as well as it did last time.

On the plus side, at least cheeze never seems to sleep, so he'll be there to monitor and maybe frown at any white nationalist posts that show up, and then do nothing while claiming to have done something.

Why not have a moderation thread in PU instead of taking over the O/T chat thread in another forum?

There is one but it's traditionally been used to call me names or talk about other things and tradition is holding still.

There's a moderation thread and numerous other threads in the forum where they are very welcome to bring it up.

I, for one, am very glad to see that Politics Unchained no longer exists.

Re: ATF Chatroom, for O/T chat

It does, the name is changed and there is a very thin veneer of "rules" on it but it amounts to the same 'ol white supremacist posting that PU was known for.

Re: ATF Chatroom, for O/T chat

That's not correct kerowo.

It isn't going to change overnight like magic but it is now moded with rules that will be enforced.

Re: Politics version 7.0 discussion thread for people who don't want to discuss this in Politic

Aside from the enforcement part or the being modded part, very true.

God damn there's a couple handfuls of posters really concerned about all the traffic in the new P forum.

I wondered how long one of the regular lefties from the P forum would start a thread like this...
