>Inb4 go to >>>/meta/
I already did for the last month. However for one, basically no one uses /meta/ unless they also get complaints about moderation. And secondly, the administration has completely dropped the ball when it comes to feedback, thus /meta/ is practically useless at this point.

And as dumb as it is knowing the contents of the thread, I also appeal to the janitors to not forcibly migrate the thread, or just to delete it entirely.

THE PROBLEM
Ever since the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the janitor staff has went berserk with its moderation policy towards the discourse surrounding this topic. Any opinion veering towards supporting Ukraine, calling out Russian crimes, doubting certain enforced naratives that originate from Russian state media or daring to commit the ultimate sin of suggesting that perhaps this time NATO is the lesser evil, is subject to bannings.

First of all, not one of the positions I described above violate any leftypol rules (which so ironically get linked every time you see the ban notification). Not only rules are not linked, the ban "reasons" half the time state non-reasons that just boil down to "I don't like what you said", or vague "glow" responses. If, say, the rules were updated, like with the Covid denial rule, then at least it would be understandable - "alright, guess we aren't a non-sectarian leftist board for all denominations anymore", I'd say, "but at least the staff has the curtesy to say it out loud that we are all now expected to be putinbots".

Secondly, not once have I received proper feedback in /meta/, the board for giving moderation feedback, over the nature of these bans. And not just me, but other anons who got similar treatment over the pro-Russia frenzy of the administration. In other words - janitors literally aren't doing their job, refusing to elaborate their bans on posts that don't violate any rules and are intent to keep silent pretending like Brezhnev just died and we all are now supposed to listen to Swan Lake on loop.

And finally, out of the five or four bans I have received over the past month, all of which were for posts that are practically identical, at least 2 of them were overturned on appeal. No explanation was given once I asked why these were overturned but not others, or why is nothing being done about powerabuse. So we can only guess that the moderation team doesn't it self know what is supposed to be done about the Ukraine moderation policy, they also are completely fine with bogus bans remaining half the time.

WHY DOES THIS MATTER TO ME, BALTOID NAZI?
I realize I might be quite unpopular for my anti-Russian position now, however this problem is wider than Ukraine war question. I am not even debating what should be the correct position on it, actually I even encourage the moderation team to openly endorse Putin so that some clarity about moderation could be found. No, the problem here is that janitors have openly shown how little they care about their own rules, how they don't care about their duty to give feedback and to be open to the users. Its only a matter of time until some other issue, one where perhaps I'll even be on the same side as the moderation team, arises, and they will decide to keep the same sort of arbitrary moderation style as now to police away wrongthink from "THEIR" board.

Thus I openly propose these ideas:
1) Mandate moderators to state in every ban which rule was broken
2) Update the rules accordingly whenever a new ban-worthy position that is not accounted for by the current rules is found
3) Temporarily revoke moderation privilages on repeated successful appeals to their issued

Has it ever occurred to you that maybe you shouldn't be allowed to push this insane line?
You've received plenty of push back but still insist in derailing the thread with your headstrong position. You are at this point just very disruptive and extremely repetitive.

The Ukraine thread is not for you to engage in the same arguments over and over and over again. If you want a thread where you push your NATO shilling, maybe I'll support it and advocate on your behalf with the other mods. As it stands, the Ukraine thread is not for that, so stop posting this shit there.

I actually agree with GPS's proposals, but I want to add one modification:

4) Make openly shilling for NATO and the USA bannable offences by adding adherence to an anti-imperialist line to the rules.

And you base this on what? My on-purpose retarded and idiotic namefag? Literally everything I said about Ukraine was still leaps and bounds more neutral or even pro-Russian than what average person in the west now believes. I agree that I keep spouting the same arguments like the Iraq war comparison or "whataboutism" with Yugowar or Grey Wolves, but that hardly makes me mad.

Your opinion is a minority opinion and dominates the thread discussion with repetitive arguments. It is disruptive for majority of the people using that thread. As I said, if you want a thread where you push your "NATO is the lesser evil" or "we shouldn't support Russia" line, I'm willing to be your advocate, but as it stands, your participation in the Ukraine thread is disruptive.

I invite you to read this post by an anon >>>/leftypol/903772
I agree with them that you aren't arguing in good faith and assume positions of others that aren't true.

As a personal note, I think your anti-Russian upbringing, assuming you had one, is clouding your judgement of what people are saying and doesn't contribute to the conversation.
>>19222
>So the Ukraine thread isn’t for discussing Ukraine?
That's a dishonest way to frame it. Discussion is hindered because of NATO apologia, for example. If rightoids were allowed to spam their ukraine nazi shit, surely you'd want them banned because they are disruptive to the conversation.

Well I am very busy and these confrontations are usually emotionally draining and time consuming. Also, speaking as a mod, even if its just a personal opinion always carries with it some sense of "official position". To actually give an "official position" about something requires a lot of work.

I've also not banned you myself, at least not recently, so I'm not exactly aware of the nature of your previous bans, which means I need to investigate to give you a solid answer.

Also I had the impression you had already received an answer before. At least through ban reasons.
>I'll just stay away from the Ukraine thread then.
I would appreciate it. As I said, if you want a thread where you, for example, equate Palestianians with Ukranians and Russia with Israel, as you're doing now in the Ukraine thread, we can discuss it. I'd be willing to advocate on your behalf.

For the record, I usually agree with your posts. At least the ones I remember. I find your positions on the Ukraine conflict to be disappointing and uncharacteristic.

>but is no room for reconciliation possible in order to get their mods back to work
Before their entire split nonsense, there was a strong rule in place forbidding internal factionalism in the mod team. They violated that with a secret faction meant to usurp power and selectively purge a handful of mods they had tried and failed to purge in the past through vote, restoring them to any degree of power would be irresponsible and damaging.

Also, just on the logistical side of being a janny, those guys would unironically start multi-hour fights in the moderation room. Some people on the team still joke about how they slightly panic to see 100+ messages in the mod room only to see it was casual conversation rather than endless arguments. Shit was so bad people regularly took long-ass breaks that made us even more unproductive despite our "larger" numbers. I can say for a fact we're far more productive without them, and we work with far less stress too.

maybe.. you should consider why that is. I mean really think critically of how things are not "because we are fucking great and everyone is toxic/lazy/drama fags/leftychanner blah blah"

Either less people are using the board, which means you have failed in your job as janitors. Unless you are seriously going to contend you have presided over an increase in quality, which would be frankly hilarious at this point. More on quality later (x)

or more people are using the board, but they don't want to be a janitor.

In which case they either don't want to be a janitor because you all suck, or because its too much hard work, but why then are this hypothetical new crop of posters who don't want to work, different from the posters of old who did want to be part of it?

A different kind of poster? A new, less engaged poster. Why so? A different culture on the board perhaps? A less engaged culture, a more aggressive and insular culture, a culture less accepting of new ideas at odds with the general hegemon of the board? A healthy debate around Covid, perhaps the defining event of the last idk decade, 50 years? Was stultified by mods adopting and harshly enforcing a completely normie position. Debate on the Ukrainian conflict, biggest thing to happen in geopolitics for a while, again, is stultified, and insularity and monoculturalism has been encouraged.

Now back to quality (x) You really think if generally posters are putting less effort into the board, i.e. because less people want to be jannies, that is reflective of an increase in the engagement of posters, posting high quality posts, etc?

In this one sentence "we get less applications every time" you have clearly shown a gaping hole in your entire thesis of board management, and proved it failure.

A board in decline, a board with less input from the userbase, unengaged, having the same arguments, rarely engage in anything besides sharing dodgy twitter links from whatever conflict and then shoehorning in pure ideology takes onto whichever sports team side you support.

Just think for one tiny second. People have a huge variety of opinions, generally, people who post here probably agree with you jannies on 90% of shit, then they have that weird 10% of strange beliefs.

Why do you focus on squashing that 10%, rather than proliferating the 90%?

The 10% of where we will find the dynamism of thought, truly interesting and new perspectives, rather than just all saying "yes capitalism v bad imperialism v bad yes" round and round with each other over and over.

Compounded is the concept in your last paragraph, yes, there is less conflict in your matrix chat. It is so much easier for you now… and yet… the above mentioned decline.

Have you considered that, quite contrary to liberal dogma, and, perfectly in line with marxist theories of the world, conflict is actually good a progressive.

It is through conflict that all good things happen. Conflict is the engine of dialectics. So you had to argue with people, well, maybe you should have found better ways to systematise the arguments so they didn't go on forever.

By very nature of them going on forever also, must have been a back and forth, so have the self awareness to see that perhaps you may have had something to do with that, instead of childishly blaming the other side 100%

What I see from the mod team is late 80's social democracy. Degeneration with no will to go above and beyond, merely to tread water and not to swim, ideas wildly above station, but lacking any imagination or radical push. The end of history, exemplified in fucking image board politics.

Labelling everything as skitzo is precisely the boring, normie pilled shit that has lead to this stagnation. Questioning the Covid narrative is hugely prevalent amongst all sections of the population. While I am 1) Vaccinated 2) in favour of lockdowns and such, the liberal tendency to shame everyone into agreeing with such things proved, again, an abject failure, and the blocking of conversations around it and labelling everyone as skitzo is precisely part of this liberal shaming.

Among other things, its peak reddit. Hilarious how we are willing (correctly) to fly in the face of like 70% of popular opinion when it comes to Ukraine, but with with vaccines we must 100% accept the most mainstream of narratives to the point we don't even allow discussion of them.

You wouldn't know, if there was dynamism of thought, because you won't even allow the space for the thoughts to grow.

By the way, you might have inadvertently learned something about vaccines, vaccine production, their history, if some anon had decided to take a "vaccine skitzo" to task and produce counter effort posts. Which is what I mean, by dialectics, conflict being good, etc

But it doesn't get to that stage.

The fact that you've summed the whole thing up as 1 line:

Sage, you are insane, and I've called you an insane loser weirdo since the entire incel general shit. People don't want to moderate because it is time-consuming and most people here are working class, with jobs and lives. Any time doing moderation necessarily eats into posting time, or even into your other recreational time during big events like the Ukraine thread or, god help us, the coming midterms.

This is why people are "inactive" or whatever, because not everyone has the time to be as hyper-engaged as your crazy ass. Even a lot of our moderation is not as engaged as you. That is why we had to deem projects of user democracy impossible, because the engagement necessary would mean that most users would be practically barred from participation while a hyperminority would rule, which you and a gagglefuck of others have managed to do on something as inconsequential as /meta/ as well, only proving us right. Whatever aesthetic you like to wear as the people of the poster or whatever insane self-aggrandizement you chose to put on today is just a front for someone who camps on a board nobody uses partly because of you and we usually do not respond to cause it is overwhelmed by schizophrenics which don't represent the majority of users, not even close.

For reference, it is fucking fine for people to not be engaged with the inane politics of internet imageboards. Most people want to rightly just post, and so llong as the means of posting are available they will do so. We curb the excesses of select giga-retards for a variety of reasons, but the prime reason is because this is a leftist chan primarily. If you want to see the fate of "free speech" altchans, look into the graveyard of them. Moderation trimming away the fat of ultra-schizos that make everything about their bugbears is simply part of the work necessary needed to keep things running smoothly, keeping posters engaged to the site. Hell, most complaints are that we under-moderate, not over-moderate, aside from the aforementioned insane bubble here on /meta/.

The post quality has also gone down dramatically, with less effort posts, and less people posting about books they read, more people posting Twitter caps etc. Which makes sense, because an admitted Twitter head old BO was the one who pushed everyone out, with all the book heads leaving.

By how people talk it is actually evident that most posters now are in university or just after university. There is much less diversity, people used to have more life experience, particularly more working class life experience. Used to be more posters with a military background, more posters who has been in prison, more posters with actual stories to tell.

The board has undoubtedly become more middle class and student orientated.

There has been polling done regularly on these boards about age, class background, tendency etc. It has been equal in seriousness across time and shown clear trends.

>>19293
>it’s your fault that the dialog breaks down when we continually lie and make shit up and every opportunity instead of admitting fault ever

Except there has been clear admitted evidence of the boards decline, I.e, less engagement which came out of a mods mouth first, and instead of considering the implications, you’ve made up a bunch of excuses which have no baring on reality.

Suddenly everyone is an old ass authentic worker when you know it’s simply just not the case.

The facts are there is less posters than there used to be, less engagement and therefore less people applying to be mods. Couldn’t be more simple

What you want me to dig up random polls from 8chan done 8 years ago and compare them to now?

Everybody knows it, it’s been commented on multiple times by various posters. You equally have no proof that everyone is older and more working class these days.

So less work with what we do have proof of, there are less posters, engaging less. I asked why, the response was everyone is older, no proof given.I wasn’t the one who brought age etc into this, that was you mods.

 No.19305

Keep in mind I never took a side as I have no interest in baseless speculation (from where I am sitting it looks like several people have engaged in such, the fact they are on different sides is altogether meaningless, as is the discussion itself, I am only interested in the assumptions).
It's normal to show "data" and acting indignant about being asked to do so does not inspire confidence. That's all, you can continue with your regular discussion.

listen listen how about this for dialogue.

I will stop complaining entirely, for 6 whole months, if each mod, with their trip on, simply admits these two things.

1) I, sage, was right about Haz
2) Mods, all mods, .org mods included, were wrong about haz, and they gave him preferential treatment and banned posters calling them wreckers and feds for oppossing haz.
3) this had a detrimental effect on the board and the leftosphere at large.

If you can all admit these things, which are objectively correct, without blaming somebody else, minimising, or otherwise deflecting or being insincere, I won't post in meta for 6 whole months.

How is that.

All you have to do is tell the objective truth one time, each of you.

You are arguing with random users once again sage. You are just acting schizo to feed your need for attention and ego maintenance. Not to mention if you actually had contention with 'mods treating infrared too well' or something you wouldn't be letting them live rent free in your head all this time when most people have forgotten about them by now. And of course there was mods opposed to infrared starting drama here, in fact none of the current mods here supported letting them make a bunch of threads to spam the site or whatever your stated point of contention is. The people that actually simped for infrared for a while, mainly zer0 and comatoast have self exiled. This is pretty dumb and kind of sad.

Get fucked retard. That thread is just filled with the most fucking insane goalpost moving of vatnik retards high on fucking pro-Putin cope it's outstanding. You idiots are literally beyond fucking InfoWars Sandy Hook shit here.
Also how are us Antiwar people "Repetitive" while none of you vatnik United Russia retards can explain how making NATO the most popular it's ever been, having Finland and Sweden join, and Europe rearming, is somehow better for "anti-imperialism", oh wait, it isn't so you just ban instead.
>That's a dishonest way to frame it. Discussion is hindered because of NATO apologia, for example. If rightoids were allowed to spam their ukraine nazi shit, surely you'd want them banned because they are disruptive to the conversation.
Yeah those of us trying to discuss things neutrally are those ruining the discussion, not the fucking constant goalpost moving and "GLOW GLOW GLOW" of vatnik chauvanists like yourself.
>That's what getting you banned…

Also this just touches on my point, my thread was completely neutral, if anything, the header actually sided with a more pro-Russian position than 99% of people in the West atm. I had links on NATO expansionism, leaked NATO documents showing NATO did know it's expansionism was a thread, tonnes of links on Ukrainian Neo Nazism, war crimes against donbass, as well as only 3 fucking links discussing the rise of Russian right wing chauvnism in it's foreign policy.
Yet I get banned for fucking "glowing", because dumb fucking retards like this shithead couldn't even be bothered to click a link that war reporting on the UKRAINIAN FAR RIGHT RAPING AND MURDERING CHILDREN IN DONBASS. Oh no, it was Reuters and RFE, it has to be glowing.
Meanwhile, these cocksuckers in the "Ukraine thread" (sucking more Russian cock than a conscript in a hazing thread) can post all their bullshit clearly FSB rightoid Russian chauvinist propaganda, MoA, RWA, RT and it's perfectly fine!
The fact you faggots never even bothered to click on the link that showed THE UKRAINIAN FAR RIGHT MILITIAS RAPING AND KILLING CHILDREN IN DONBASS, shows that you faggots are knowingly completely acting in bad faith.

My position has, and always will be anti-war between Capitalist powers and this conflict has been a disaster for the left, as it's essentially erased the past 20 years of US/NATO fuckups and has countries like fucking Finland joining NATO when arguably, NATO probably wouldn't have existed in 20 years if this didn't happen.

>And you’re there, in hostile territory, stuck in your armored vehicle, unable to tell civilians from the enemy, an easy target to anyone with an RPG or Javalin. Yeah, you sure are gonna be rational about things, aren’t you? And you’re not gonna be jumpy and unload your massive caliber machine gun on some poor sap riding a bike in your direction.
>There is a sad kind of predictability to people on this staunch denialist side. They’re basically the exact inverse of the rabid neocons running America’s foreign policy and media machine. To the neocons, Russians are savages and barbarians, no matter what. They’re always to blame. To the denialists, the Russian side is always telling the truth and Russian solders never do harm because to they’re liberators and on the right side of history.

Even Yasha, one of the most Pro-Russian/Russian sympathetic commentators out there finds you Self hating Neocons cringe as fuck.
Again, I used RFE because it was reporting on Ukrainian far right militias raping and murdering children in the Donbass and telling Zelensky to go fuck himself. Something the rest of the MSM was completely ignoring. No-one who isn't a delusional Vatnik could have thought my thread was pro Ukrainian dipshit, I was literally posting internal NATO documents showing they absolutely knew that their expansion into Ukraine was going to cause a war and I provided like 10 different links on Ukrainian war crimes and how NATO lured Russia into this war.
But oh no, I'm not a Vatnik Neocon who thinks Putin is some holy saviour of communism so I'm 100% a fucking "glowie" while you cunts aren't totally just assmad Russians.
