I don't blame you, you've always been great.

Genuine question here though: In this case, did it? Was anybody hurt by a tankie saying tankie shit in those first days?

Alana was pissed and worried, i've been annoyed since the beginning. No idea if there was more people agreeing with us but because of leniency we lost Galdra and Toast.

I hope this won't sound like an attack but I really want to share my opinion about this.

In the 10 months I've been there, tankies have never been welcomed so that history is really far behind. Let's not forget that bans can be reversed, it's ok to make mistakes and correct them. Not acting on obvious trolls just hurt the community.

I agree that banning user is not being useful when they can make more accounts, but violating the ToS is a ban according to the ToS.

Users that demonstrate a pattern of intolerance or attempt to use raddle.me as a platform for fascistic ideas and bigotry will be seen as violating these Terms of Service and will be banned from using this site.

So shouldn't we ban and then having a discussion to deal better with such situation instead of letting bigotry happen because we aren't done talking about how to deal with it in a better way?

The criticism wasn't about admins having a life outside of raddle, but that at least 2 admins were aware of u/Mao and no one dared to act.

Which led to a debate about "image" and we needed to get Emma's and Mofongo's opinion because they are marxist (from what I understand). Emma gave hers but Mofongo missed the discussion.

Today we manage to make u/Mao clearly violate the ToS but for some reason there was suggestion of demodding because "it's more fun to take tankies power away". Which shouldn't be a suggestion when someone is breaching the ToS with transphobia. And then talking about it in the chatroom there was still talk about waiting for Mofongo's opinion.

Have you read the first link you post because it doesn't say it doesn't exist, it says it exists but not to the extreme people thought.

The system doesn’t actually exist—at least as it’s generally portrayed. It’s not surprising that myths about the system are spreading, given the shrinking space in China for civil society, rights lawyering, speech, investigative journalism, and religious belief; its increasingly ubiquitous, invasive surveillance capability; and the Chinese Communist Party’s push to apply big data and artificial intelligence in governance. China’s party-state is collecting a vast amount of information on its citizens, and its social credit system and other developments internally and overseas raise many serious concerns. But contrary to the mainstream media narrative on this, Chinese authorities are not assigning a single score that will determine every aspect of every citizen’s life—at least not yet.

The scope, scale, diversity, and language of the evolving system have caused a lot of confusion, particularly with respect to the existence of a single social credit score. There is no such thing as a national “social credit score.” A few dozen towns and cities in China, as well as private companies running loyalty-type programs for their customers, do currently compute scores, primarily to determine rewards or access to various programs. That was the source of at least some of the confusion.

That's my point, asexuality has nothing to do with queerness but the relationship is. Having a low libido isn't being asexual though. If you mean having sex for the sake of the other partner and if both are cishet then it's not queer.

I hope it doesn't sound like an attack on anyone, I just want to share my view and hearing others.

If your politics are important to you and your girlfriend doesn't like your beliefs you might just have saved yourself.

What probably happened though is that she might simply felt like the joke was out of place like you are telling her that burning herself isn't worth to complain about.

I've banned you from f/News for posting old polling result instead of news. And linking to Breitbart. As I've already told you, a random rant of praise to Stalin isn't history. The East is Red is historical and I'm not deleting it.

He is but this has nothing to do with history, it's just rambling about how "great" Stalin is.

As someone that isn't affected by the debate, I side that asexuality isn't queer except if you are actually queer as a person. A thing I'm curious about is how asexual are facing oppression, nobody knows if you are having sex or not. And if someone knows and is being a shit about it, isn't it similar as being a shit toward men that don't fit the "manly man" stereotype?

No link to the poll, no idea how many were polled, not really news and a month old.

Deleted!

The problem is original content can't be verified keeping anonymity and if it's not verified you don't know the source or the legality. So the only possible thing I can think of is sex worker advertising on raddle. Also it should be on it's own forum.
