Raddle already has an extremely high barrier of entry just because of how eloquent, thoughtful and well-read its users are; making most newcomers too intimidated to join in. That's the praxis version of an entry barrier - set high standards with a high level of discourse. Then the right people will work to improve their politics (and their personality) before participating much.

Making people take an exam before they can get in is just gatekeeping and assumes there's only one 'correct' answer to questions; which is incredibly short-sighted.


Also, raddle moderators aren't here to remove 'shitty posts' - just commercial spam and other terms of service violations. The users downvote shitty posts for quality control. Just click /controversial if you want to see a sea of shit.

What are you politics, out of curiosity?

  • I mean shitty posts as in fashy posts.
  • I am only suggesting this in the context of postmill, and not that of raddle per-say, as a means for communities from facebook, discord, and other not nice places to have better options, that use a vetting system.
  • I agree with you that Raddle does have a high barrier of entry naturally and that is good
  • as we are speaking hypothetically, your speculation of its nature is valid, [some text here that speaks to my idea of questions as not really one-sided, or the issue of one-sidedness not being an issue when it comes to fundamentals that might concern a group]

I am an anti-capitalist (except I am kinda fine with market-socialism to an extent xaxa). I really haven't solidified on a certain school of thought, and I think there are different approaches that need to be taken within different contexts to achieve liberation.

Fashy posts are against the ToS so that shouldn't be a problem.
