>>117479>its because half the staff are oldfags that have been on the site for a while and the other half are people that were either posters on /leftpol/ or moderators on /leftpol/ and all of them want to pretend theres some kind of meme democratic process so we're stuck with
Mostly agreed.>both parties
America box. There aren't two sides. Each mod has their own values, just like everyone else on this board does.>making passive aggressive or aggressive aggressive jabs at one another within congress chat
I haven't observed that ever, so much as simple disagreements over what should be banned.>and moments when /b/ and /leftypol/ end up getting heavily axed in terms of discussion and other times when its relaxed, the sites in a state of schizophrenic moderation
This is an issue, especially on /b/ which is essentially a non-defined place, see below. The mods need to talk this through before it becomes a crisis.>and a lot of the banning, post deletion and other shit done on /b/ is out of some sort of petty spite
I have never seen this happen.>or out of some retarded paranoid belief that people […] are subverting and sabotaging the site when people call the avatarfags retarded
If you're thinking of the Pennyjak fiasco, judging by Congress, most
of that was from soyjak.party raiders with no post history outside of soyjak general. It was literally external raiding. It's not a paranoid belief when you can see their threads on their homeboard telling people to harass a user. Of course, there were regular users here who did likewise because it was fun and they found avatarfags annoying/unwanted, and they shouldn't be punished for it.
I think at one point there was overreach that came down to the interpretation of mod/s that quoting a post verbatim with a soyjak is literal spam that shouldn't be part of /b/, and again, it looks like this comes down to their conflicting interpretation of what /b/ is (combined with literal daily raids at that point). Is it a 4chan or 7chan /b/? Clearly not, since there mods can do whatever the fuck the want. Is it a 'general discussion' lounge? Clearly not, since low-effort posts are often toleratePost too long.
