It was isolated to just post and few other subs I moderated. Like, killallgames didn't have quality standards, but games did. We only removed posts that were otherwise harmful, like racist and sexist and stuff.

They're largely recreations of subs I made on reddit, in general because I was trying to get away from the overbearing moderation on SRS subs. There's a lot of people who have interesting things to say, but feel intimidated by large lists of rules and community expectations. I feel that encouraging low effort posting (I won't call it shitposting) is a great way to get people involved who might otherwise be lost or bored. It is about inclusivity.

It's funny that you mention there being more serious articles now, as we've actually stopped moderating for quality at all.
