/f/communism was an ML sub

It was not an an ML forum, I took steps to ensure that by appointing an ancom to the mod team when an ML was added and getting the ancom (nodefunallowed) to change the rules when the ML tried to make talking ill of Stalin a crime.

I told the mods very directly that f/communism is for ALL communists, not just MLs and banning ancoms without reason would be grounds for dismissal. Please don't poison the well because she's your friend.

When you de-admined shiningwing, you again did it on your own accord

She was never appointed as an admin. She was a temporary spambuster that was only given banning privs temporarily while we were being raided. I didn't need anyone's permission to remove them. Stop poisoning the well.

Edit: I removed no MLs from the forum. In fact, I modded two of them.

There was a vote to make it absolutely explicitly catch-all— since there was so much ambiguity around it. Everyone assumed it was catch-all before the banning. Up until that single action, it was functionally and seemingly catch-all.

I've repeatedly explained that her permissions were temporary and only 'admin'-like because of the limitations of the software. The software considered her an admin, so I needed to de-admin her to remove her privileges, but she was never officially or unofficially appointed an admin.

She was made a temporary spambuster, but that position was never added to the postmill code, so she was able to use an 'admin' badge, which she did repeatedly - even though she was told again and again, before and after taking the position, that she wasn't an admin.

You're deliberately obfuscating to confuse the issue.

yeah but we had to have a vote on whether or not /f/communism should be for all communists if you remember? because at the time it was an ML sub, that vote however did pass and no-defun and a few others were modded to /f/communism

Not how it happened. I appointed nofun at the exact same time as I appointed Tito and specifically told them it was to maintain a balance and ensure Tito wouldn't exclude non MLs. Stop spreading misinformation.

the only people who took offense to shining calling herself an admin, probably by referring to the role the software considered her to be, was you though.

On this point - I was concerned about it as well and had been for some time. So far as I understand, so was emma. I don't remember anyone else but I wasn't expecting to need to and there may well have been.

Raddle was never full of MLs. The forum in question was all but dead before I appointed tito and nodefun as mods. I can literally count the number of MLs that ever posted there on one hand.

The vote was initiated by nodefun after I asked them (using defasher) to take action because the tankie mod was making up sectarian rules.

/f/communism is part of raddle. Count the MLs that have been here - Sudo, tito, josefstallman (mlm), shiningwing... maybe a couple more that posted once or twice and quickly left. That forum had very few posts at the time. If tito and josef posted a few articles to an otherwise bare forum, the forum isn't 'full of mls'.
