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.
