I'm planning to write up a first draft of a terms of service tomorrow and ask the community for their input.

Shall we allow tankies (I don't mean the generic MLMs, but the people who will scream "SUPPORT DPRK OR TO THE GULAG" at you)?

Only if it's on an ironic humor sub like f/fullcommunism imo. I wouldn't want to see that in a sub like f/socialism.

What should the policies around slurs be? Is "stupid" and similar a slur?

I think we should have a bot that auto deletes the 7 biggest slurs like we had on the old site, while the rest should be up to each sub's mod team.

But part of the terms of service for mods should be that they remove deliberate bigotry and oppression or risk being replaced.

What exactly does "reactionary" mean?

Bigots and far right people.

Can liberals and other ask questions or is this a radical-only space (alternatively: is this a place FOR radicals or ABOUT radical leftism)?

I think liberals should be welcomed to the site in general, but each sub should decide how much liberalism they're willing to tolerate before dropping the ban hammer on them. There's an anarchism101 sub for instance, so if they're posting on f/anarchism but are completely ignorant to anarchist ideals, they should be redirected there. There are also plenty of non-political subs where liberals should be welcome as long as they don't use raddit as a platform for oppressive ideas.

What would you consider the seven biggest? Just curious, in case I need to start curbing my vocab.

Jesus, those really are big ones. I won't have to change my vocab at all.
For a second I was worried common words like "stupid" etc would be counted.
People tend to get into hissy fits when that happens.

In some subforums I imagine such words could be counted, which I think is a good thing to allow that sort of autonomy.

Yeah, these seem like good words to ban. It doesn't really limit the content of what we say but it prevents serious bigotry from establishing itself here.

Is this a slur? Sorry, I'm not native in english, but I always thought of it as just a swearword, maybe a bit worse than "fuck", but not a slur. Looking it up, it seems to be used derogatory towards women, is this true?

It's a slur against women in America/Canada especially.

Oh, I didn't even know. huh

It doesn't really affect me, I rarely use that word anyway.
