I mean in a sense the "Stop Snitchin" thing is (and that's way worse, as that's not just like "don't tattle" but "don't help rid our community of violent criminals")- but it's not just people trying to be badass that drives the notion that it's not cool to say, report an offensive post.

I mean, this is ingrained in people when they're very young that telling authority figures is wrong - it's an us vs. them thing. I'll say I'm a post reporter, and that's because sometimes threads get out of control without moderation, and if I wanted to read a bunch of terrible posts, I can go to any other sports message board on the Internet.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Holiday Discussion

I'm far more likely to report someone for AIDSing up a thread rather than making a racial slur. One is easy to ignore/has no effect on me, while the other ruins conversation.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Holiday Discussion

Lot of laws/rules are dumb, lot of punishments for non-dumb laws/rules are overly harsh because of deterrence effect authority figures seek, this makes the number of cases where it is acceptable to snitch small in which case you aren't snitching because everyone agrees that punishment was deserved. Posts regarding El Rata were mostly jokes.

Hope that helps.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Holiday Discussion

snitching is bad because it violates an implicit trust between two people. do you think people trust snitches? most people want to be trusted so they dont snitch. most people that do snitch deserve not to be trusted because they are likely to continue to alert others to information that isn't meant to be fully public in the future.

seems somehow appropriate for bobbo to be getting in his slur temp-ban in this style.

heels' ban was super weak tho, was clearly just making fun of THAKID's casual bigotry. should fall under the possibly non-existent satire exemption imo.

right, but the difference here is that 'snitching' by reporting posts - unless it's a BBV4L sort of thing where people are trying to hide nudes or the like - isn't a violation of anyone's trust. it's usually me saying to the mods 'if i were a mod, i'd do something about this, but since i'm not, i think you should take a look at it'.

i also think that dids doesn't understand that snitches are paid money or generally offered something in return for what they do - while stop snitching also covers good samiritans or do-gooders in general, it also covers people looking to profit.
