Nah, a moderator was moderating /leftypol/ while not responding to or reading mod updates or congress discussion. In the weeks before this incident, they had made some controversial, unexplained deletions leading to multiple user complaints, and yesterday was found to be continuing to use a powerful anti-spam feature against legitimate users they had falsely identified as ban evaders, leading to the accidental deletion of /leftydeutschpol/.
Three days ago a proposal was suggested for their removal as they had not responded despite evidently being online. Their moderation powers have now been stripped as an emergency measure due to their recklessness.

This OP will (hopefully) remain updated with the latest information on voting. I won't be explaining too much about the process as it's currently only unofficially being used until a new constitution is written. The basics are that any staff member can create a [proposal]. Two other users approve this proposal for voting, this is not approval of the measure but of the clarity and purpose of the proposal. Once approved it can become a [vote]. Votes finish in 3 days or when a vote has majority approval/disapproval. There are also fast track votes, but we don't need to get into those. With that out of the way, here's the current view:

Ongoing Propositions:
* Proposal: Vote on whether we should use our public names in the mod meeting, if names should be up to moderator choice, or whether all mods should only be identified via numbers.

Votes:
* Vote: Extension of 3 days on board merger vote. – Vote ends Jan.3rd – 4 yay
* Vote: Have a conversation on switching staff rooms from matrix to another, self-hosted, FOSS software. Possible alternatives include, but not limited to: rocket.chat, session messenger, matterhorn, zulip, scuttlebutt, jabber. – 5 yay 2 abstain – Ends January 8th
* Vote: Merge /games/ and /anime/ into /hobby/ (while keeping a backup of the current threads of each for future use) Vote ends 31st Dec 10pm UTC – 6 yay 3 nay

Recently Completed:
* Get rid when possible of the side bar and the HTML frames in the home page. – PASSED 6 yay
* Vote: delete hidden boards from leftypol – PASSED 5 yay
* Make Dark Red the Default Theme for now. – PASSED 4 yay 3 nay

Hello everyone. We found the results of the last survey useful, and we would like to now gather more feedback on a different variety of subjects. The results of the previous survey have been analysed here, if you are interested in a statistical analysis and some conclusions. >>>/meta/7357

Here are the questions for this month; please don't feel pressured to answer every one if you don't want to, if you have no strong opinions then you may simply leave the question out of your response. Feel free to write as much as you like but please try to answer our quantitative questions as well as this helps us to interpret the results objectively. So, without further ado, here we go.

Question 1: The moderation team wants an evaluation by the userbase on their performance since the migration to leftypol.org in a few categories. Give a number rating with lower being worse and higher being best and a brief comment on performance if desired.

On a scale of 1 to 10 how quickly do the mods respond to rule-breaking content?
On a scale of 1 to 10 how do you think the mods have lead to a /leftypol/ conducive for quality discussion?
On a scale of 1 to 10 how well do you think the moderation has responded to user complaints and requests for the site and boards?
A simple yes/no, do you think the structure of the site overall is the best it could be as structured by the moderation?

Question 2: Thinking more generally about the way that /leftypol/ is now, the moderation would like to know exactly how the users feel about the composition of threads. Feel free to briefly comment to expand your thoughts if you wish.

Do you think that there are (A) too few generals, (B) just enough generals, or (C) too many generals in /leftypol/?
A Yes/No, do you think the prevalence of general threads is impeding the creation of worthwhile smaller topic threads? IE is the US general impeding the creation of more nuanced threads about US politics?

So, it looks like i'm somehow banned for calling an kurdish( or maybe greek /Pol/yp) ultranationalist "goat-fucker" but why?
Why can't we attack reactionaries with their own language? Fascism is not only a first-world thing, there is a amount of fascism at third-world. We attack white/burger fascists in a fascistic way, so why can't we attack others same way?
Like if a hindutvafag comes, can't we attack hım like "streetshitter" or "show bobs and vagena" ?

I am unable to find this ban, is it still active? Can you give the time or duration of the ban, or the exact ban reason?
I am willing to bring this up with the moderators, as it does not sound like an offense.

How do we know that /leftypol/ is not a CIA honeypot? Remember that they tried to create a fake social media website for cubans to incte subversion against the revolutionary government.

Also if something "suspicious" (not necessarily illegal, just "sus" in CIA terms) happens the admin is supposed to give them the logs right? Since the servers are located in the US.

I'm not trying to bash this good website, I just want to know what others think about this.

My opinions:
>You shouldn't be doing anything political online without protecting yourself. This site is no exception.
>This website shouldn't be used for IRL praxis or cybercrime. For starters, it's public-facing and clearnet, E2EE is infeasible unless you go full PGP.

At the end of the day, you usually can't trust a website, even if the admin acts in good faith. It's hosted by a provider who can probably get subpoena'd by whatever government the site resides in. ISPs can track IPs in and out. This is the same deal with almost any website and is hard to avoid without making it darknet-exclusive.
leftypol.org supplies a Tor node and allows proxies and usage without JavaScript or 3rd party connections, so people protecting themselves can use the site pretty securely. But at the end of the day, this site isn't designed to handle those problems. It's a public imageboard.

You are failures of an administration team
You allow the same old liberal bait and copypasta to stay up time and time again until it gets 200+ replies
You allow unfettered /pol/ argumentum ad nauseum to run rampant on your website
You do not moderate your website beyond the bare minimum of removing spam
The pic related is you
You are weak and I hate you

Okay, I agree we've been letting things slip a bit, unfortunately there's quite a bit of disagreement in the mod team about what and how to moderate. But we will try to sort it out and do better.

First start by moving all the coom stuff to /b/ or at least a (sage) cmon, you don't see rule34 threads all over /games/ and /hobby/ do you?

There's a lot more of random shit that obfuscate discussion but degens are a constant on anime boards so there isn't much you can do, those are the most obvious ones

As for the loli and shota threads i'd outright delete them. Weather you think it is genuine pedophilia or not this always devolves in the discussion of it and its fucking sickening
Also jannies should know what happens to a site when they let these things slide

It seems like the people on /anime/ like those threads though, and they would get drowned out on /b/. Honestly if someone made a porn thread on /games/ I would be fine with it as long as it was related. I asked a while back on /anime/ if they wanted me to do anything and they said no, so I didn't do anything.

tl;dr: Why the fuck can I say here jewish nigger but not uyghurish?

Marx begins his letter with explaining how miserable his financial situation is due the civil war
>From the enclosed scrawls you will partly see how bothered I am. So far, the landlord has allowed himself to be placated; he has yet to receive £25. The piano chap, who is being paid in instalments for the piano, should already have had £6 at the end of June, and is a most ill-mannered brute. I have rate demands in the house amounting to £6. The wretched school fees — some £10 — I have fortunately been able to pay, for I do my utmost to spare the children direct humiliation. I have paid the butcher $6 on account (the sum total of my quarterly takings from the Presse!), but I’m again being dunned by that fellow, not to mention the baker, the teagrocer, the greengrocer, and such other sons of Belial as there may be.
<Aus den einliegenden Wischen siehst Du teilweise, wie ich bin bothered. Der landlord hat sich bisher beschwichtigen lassen, hat 25 £ zu bekommen. Der Klaviermann, der Ratenzahlungen für das Klavier bekommt, sollte schon am letzten Juni 6 £ erhalten, und ist ein sehr grober Lümmel. Steuerzettel für 6 £ liegen mir im Haus. Den Schuldreck von ungefähr 10 £ habe ich glücklicherweise bezahlt, da ich alles tue, um den Kindern direkte Demütigungen zu ersparen. Dem Metzger habe ich 6 £ abgezahlt (und dies war meine Gesamteinnahme eines Vierteljahrs von der „Presse"!), aber der Kerl tritt mich wieder, nicht zu sprechen von Bäcker, teagrocer, greengrocer und wie all das Teufelszeug heißt.

then he rants about Lassalle
>The Jewish nigger Lassalle who, I’m glad to say, is leaving at the end of this week, has happily lost another 5,000 talers in an ill-judged speculation. The chap would sooner throw money down the drain than lend it to a ‘friend’, even though his interest and capital were guaranteed. In this he bases himself on the view that he ought to live the life of a Jewish baron, or Jew created a baron (no doubt by the countess). Just imagine! This fellow, knowing about the American affair, etc., and hence about the state of crisis I’m in, had the insolence to ask me whether I would be willing to hand over one of my daughters to la Hatzfeldt as a ‘companion’, and whether he himself should secure Gerstenberg’s (!) patronage for me!
