yo, are you gonna do anything about moderator abuse? That's a huge problem on reddit. For example the free will to ban someone permanently from a subreddit is abuse in my opinion. They ban for vague and often changing reasons. A mod should never be allowed to permanently ban someone from any part of the site, only an administrator. And furthermore, I think users should have the power to vote mods out.

That qualifies as abuse if you live in a tiny mountain village and everything you say or post has to be approved by the village elders. On the Internet you are free to post to some other place.

Yes we have f/meta for voting mods out if they abuse their power. It's written into the ToS to make sure mods don't ban people without good reason, and everyone including admins are accountable to the users. Everything is transparent, so if someone bans a user that isn't doing anything deserving of a ban, they need to explain why, and if the community disagrees with the ban, it'll be overturned.

Good because every mod should be open to critical feedback. And if you're talking about the history of World War 2 and I quote something from the movie Borat that shouldn't be grounds for indefinite banning. Even light hearted trolling, you dont like it? down vote them. You dont need to ban anyone. In my opinion, yeah spammers or doxxers should be banned. You got a problem fascists i get it you dont want the site to be overrun like that other site. Maybe, at a point in time you can make a box for the fascists to talk into.

They already have a box.

It ain't entirely fascists over there. I have an account over there, and I'm a rabid Bernie partisan who quit the other other site when one of the /r/SandersForPresident mods went and systematically deleted every post I'd ever made to the sub, because I offhandedly suggested that we should be killing the masters, not fucking negotiating with them.

Your "critical feedback" might be trolling. The same as your "trolling" can be "constructive feedback" to some other folks.

So you won't do it. Others will. And everybody else will choose based on content. There are no should and should nots.

Listen, you fuzzy little shithead! I've been fucked around in my time by a fairly good cross-section of mean-tempered, rule-crazy cops, and now it's my turn. So fuck you, Officer. I'm in charge.
