Also we're kinda waiting to see who still actually wants to be a mod when the dust settles because a lot of people right now are concerned about getting doxxed or otherwise targeted.

maybe we should reconsider making the super cop a super mod if they are the only ones who wanted it?

Trump fat is a bad joke.

Trump fat and it's entirely his fault because he lives an incredibly hedonistic lifestyle and his followers often depict him like he's a Greek god is a very funny joke.

The concept of fatness being someone's "fault" is body shaming. You can justify it however you want, but if you're going to call people Nazis for making jokes that otherize people and imply that some lives are worth less than others, you don't get to plead nuance.

c-spam is pretty much going to stay ungovernable until they take the incredibly easy and super loving simple step of giving us mods who are from c-spam and enjoy interacting with us. this is not loving difficult, and should've been done after it became apparent that the forum was not going away after 2016

Quit being so ungovernable. Accept the will of TFR and DnD mods

Is less their baggage and more that there's quite a number of insane stalkers on the forum who think paying means they're entitled to harass anyone who prevents them from posting (i.e. probations/bans).

Also a lot of people on offsites who think this place is the epicenter of SJW Cultural Marxism and would happily seize on any opportunity to destroy someone associated with this place.

Well I suspect the worry about doxxing is presumably because

a) the closure of FYAD and ongoing tension about bigotry on the forums has riled up a lot of the dodgier posters on-site
b) the intense amount of attention currently being directed at the forums by the scummiest offsites thanks to the months of drama
c) one of the mods just turned out to be chilling on nazi discords with chuds who also have forums accounts

mean that this is a dicey time to be a visible authority figure on SA, not because they're all crypto-fash.

i assume the serious answer here is that this is a webforum and no one has to actually tell us anything

no i know that cop mentality is endemic in practice, i was talking as someone who wants a fairly moderated forum with no unnecessary drama so i and all other comrades can shitpost in peace

and from that perspective i don't really see why the guy who okayed and kept shielding nazi plane jones: pro discord sleuth under no mitigating circumstances should get to make more potentially horrible decisions

It's insane to me that the PPJ stuff came as a huge surprise to everyone.

edit: That's not really charitable. What I mean to reference is that tons of people were asking for scrutiny to be given to PPJ for months.

and i'm with you 100% but this isn't a situation where we can vote out the people at the top or overthrow them. they can just ban you and if you want to come back then you gotta give them money. its a wonder that they're even considering the possibility of doing anything at all

Maybe have someone you trust look through it and see if there is anything in there that actually needs action? If not you can just delete it and they don't have to tell you what it had.
