Once upon a time, the now four websites were united under the banner of the glorious Bunker, after the tribulations of the Year of Shooting Induced Permabans. The Bunkerchan, LeftypolOrg, GET, and LeftypolNet, although moderated by different factions of moderators, all had coexisted on one site under the superficially aloof and often absent dictator Space, presiding over the boards but not directly interfering in the everyday affairs of management and moderation. Thus, though the factions of moderators could squabble to no end, the personage of Space under which the regime on the Bunker existed could symbolize unity, stability, and continuity. However, the catastrophes began when Space, in a hotheaded moment of half warranted suspicion, elected to descend into the sphere of the politics of ordinary moderators, and blackened the legitimacy of the administration of the Bunker, so that the illusion of the benevolent but removed ruler became no more and factions of moderators initiated the war of all against all. After that, the history repeated, because the site administrators didn't conduct themselves in the ways of the benevolent coronate and perform the correct rites, instead meddling in the lowly affairs of state by managing the jannies' infighting. Hence the drama that has wracked not only this site recently but also of the past the GETLF incident triggered by the crisis of King's surprise reentrance and the even earlier infinityLeftypol BO spergout. In order to arrest the slide into lawless anarchy of Leftypol and avoid any potentially imminent future problems, there should be a suitable shitposter of noted lineage crowned potentate of the USSC, in whom the ultimate authority of site administration be vested, and by this action restore, to former glory, the great harmony of the state.17 posts and 1 image reply omitted.

the only good one was the 8chan bo
Well, I would probably give a brainlet response, but I am also keen on knowing that absolutists themselves, even despite criticizing Plato, really preferred him to Aristotle, as Hobbes said that Plato was the best of the Greek philosophers.
I think there does need to be fresh blood, but vetting mods would be probably be a good idea. Where the modocracy is right is that getting new mods takes time and you need experienced hands on deck… and Bodin says, that it is good to have fewer than many more for the modocracy, because "more governours, more factions, their consultations will be more hard to determine". But also those who are already heavily invested in the board.
The Herodotus debate also talked about this problem, "But in an oligarchy, the desire of many to do the state good service sometimes engenders bitter enmity among them; for each one wishing to be the chief of all and make his counsels, violent enmity is the outcome, enmity brings faction, and faction bloodshed."
