If you want to participate in our community, you have to follow the ToS. According to the ToS, creating multiple accounts to evade bans or avoid restrictions is prohibited.

Now on to your post, I am not sure why you're so centered on criticizing Americans and Liberalism as if we aren't highly critical of both the US and liberals. Also, to my understanding, the majority of Raddlers are not American (I can only think of one off the top of my head).

So why, when faced with the huge oppression women in countries like Iran, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia or the UAE, don't Raddlers have the BALLS to express the fact that it is due to the religion these countries have in common that women are treated in such a backwards way there.

You're removing the entire context and imperialist history of the middle east, and showing a poor understanding of what religion actually functions as. This shows you're either poorly studied on the topic, or that your view is informed by a nationalist/racist worldview (which isn't surprising if you frequent right-wing forums, as you claim).

Why do you think these are the ways things are done here?

This is a forum run on anarchist principles. That is we try to remove bigotry and oppressiveness in all its forms - even in our language. The question is why should we subject ourselves to whatever is personally convenient for you?

Anarchist 'principles' (lol) strongly emphasize personal responsibility, freedom of association and direct action. Removing a racist from our space is 100% anarchist. It's not a hierarchy to stand up for oppressed peoples when a white European man is inciting hatred against them.

Fighting against oppression and exploitation is anarchism. This is our space and if you don't respect our (very reasonable) rules then we can tell you to leave.

It's really obnoxious when you claim so much to understand Anarchism and then go and spout out a bunch of garbage that instantly reveals your ignorance. I would be more inclined to engage in discourse with you, if you weren't acting like you're the ultimate judge of Anarchism while having a toddler's understanding of the subject. You're completely missing any notions of context, intersectional solidarity, and safe spaces and insisting that they have no value.

Why waste our time with this nonsense?

You're exactly right, not sure why people are downvoting... Raddle does have a hierarchy. Right now, this hierarchy is actually used for good (such as getting rid of bigotry), and most decisions are taken in concensus or by voting, but that doesn't change the fact that hierarchy is a pretty important part of Raddle right now.

Would you allow a neonazi to sit in on your meetings?

It's not like the admins or mods here ban on a whim. We're just custodians acting according to the ToS which can be changed at the community's will via /f/meta. As with any online platform, there needs to be someone to fulfill this custodial role. Feel free to challenge anything in the ToS, or anyone who is a mod, and propose it in meta.
