Also both mods that you’re complaining about aren’t on the modteam anymore (and by and large aren’t on the site anymore) so this is an incredibly weird hill to die on

I echo Psyche's comment. This is certainly an argument you can have publicly, if you so choose, but this isn't the place to rehash your interactions a year ago un an entirely separate thread with a mod who is no longer a mod and who hasn't posted in this thread

Also agreed. This whole conversation has been more complicated than "X person did Y wrong"; we can definitely have this dialogue, and there's likely a lot to learn from it, but this thread isn't the place for it.
at last, my transformation into xofelf is complete.

The point has been made that this isn't the topic to have other discussions, feel free to PM me, or to start another topic to discuss this.

incredible that you feel the need to comb back through an old thread to a whole post about people who aren't mods anymore for the sole purpose of showing the forum your entire ass. phenomenal unforced error. well done.

feel slighted that you didn't quote my more incendiary and combative posts from the same thread. can't imagine why that would be since your intention was to prove that I was being "unprofessional" in my 7th year at an unpaid volunteer job moderating a web forum devoted to a party game. they were good posts though so I'll repost them.

ah, but you're saying, I have a nuanced view related to free speech and this is silencing my-

let me just stop you there by saying I don't care. no one on the mod team cares. you will not find a friendly ear on the mod team by demanding that you should get to use racist language.

while i am in heavy opposition to his stance on speech, I don't think he is a fascist. im shocked i have to clear tht up.

yes.

I used to be gung-ho radical free speech etc because I'm a left-wing libertarian type but years of moderating a web forum has taught me that in a communal space you've gotta have *some* rules about racist/sexist language. there's people out there who like to use racist/sexist language to make other people feel bad because that makes them feel good or just because they get a kick out of rustling jimmies. you don't lose anything really by disallowing racism, but you do lose the voices of people who will just avoid the space due to discomfort. I'd rather have the 9 people who would just avoid conflict than the 1 person who loves to hurt people.


I'll just cap this off by saying I would tell you to shut the fuck up, but it's probably better to have people regularly proving that anime avatars are a handy marker for stupid posts that you can safely disregard.

This thread is locked.

To re-iterate: players may not use the word Lynch. We hope to not ban (m)any people over this, but please feel free to gently remind other players of this rule. Expect some people will slip up -- that's not a big deal as long as we're moving away from it.

Thanks, everyone!
