Nowhere in the main post have I mention banning, I guess they can't read either. Also I have no power, I just asked for opinion on something I noticed. They have their own safe space so they can fuck off from raddle if they can't handle a normal conversation.

I get your point now. I don't see it as anything going against consensus or adding bureaucracy. It's simply having username being part of content policy. At worst people have to think a few seconds more about their username at best admins can delete account without waiting for the obvious trolls to talk, like /u/GrimWillow did with /u/TrumpPence2020

I think it's kind of away from the conversation. It's not about username vs. what a user wrote but that neither should include fascism, racism, etc.

My suggestion is that name should be in line with the content policy. If your behaviour is shitty and you don't work on yourself, you are banned. If your username make it looks like you are supporting fascist ideology and refuse to change it, same consequence.

People should be asked to change their name first of course. If we make it that username needs to match the ToS then yeah account that get created and doesn't respect that get deleted.

Thanks! I had no idea of this mess, I only knew of him since the 2016 election. Then I would agree that it's in bad taste but I never came across them and lacked knowledge on Sanders.

Now we have a case of active user(s) that I came across and I'm bringing the subject to light as I think username should follow the content policy.

yes

BernieSanders is not the real one (or that's what they want us to believe!) and obviously a joke. If it was "I support Bernie Sanders" I would think they might be annoying liberals but Sanders isn't a dictator.

I think the second one is tasteless but they haven't been here in 10 months so I never saw their post.

Edit: the third one is kind of clever and I don't think it promote these people. What the user write is another thing though, I didn't bother to check it up. In the end some might think the name is of bad taste and we should reflect on it.

I understand you, on the same principle, I wouldn't complain at a tribe of hunter/gatherer that they eat meat. Black nationalism is kind of legitimate, as far as I know it doesn't come from a "we're better than other race" but more of "white ruined everything, we only have ourselves to trust". Not that we can't criticize black nationalism but I feel like it's more a critic that should come from them.

Good point but can we simply make a lexicon of the words used in the ToS? Their definition doesn't have to be ours.

Could always use "white nationalism", "systemic racism / racism against people of colour". I think a wiki lexicon make more sense though.

There is a difference between being and doing. I don't see f/shoplifting spreading shit around nor having offensive username. The keyword in the ToS is "promotes" as long as no one is promoting fascism it doesn't matter what they deep down believe.

I never suggested to ban anyone base on their ideology, simply that the content policy should apply to username and that it includes fascism, nationalism, and racism.

I thought supporting fascism was basically a ban.

"Promotes white supremacy, homophobia or heterosexism, transphobia or cisgenderism, misogyny or patriarchy, classism, ableism, body shaming, antisemitism, Islamophobia, colonialism or age discrimination."

Guess I was wrong, I would add fascism, nationalism, and racism to the list and include username to uphold the same policy.

Any thoughts on that?

I just went to the SCS engineers website and there is a Doug Doerr, the guy on TDWorld goes by Douglas S. Dorr (Doug Dorr). Their bio doesn't match so it's not the same person.

that video just look like a really hot metal that burn the plants put on it. Let's say it's conducting electricity (as they are at a radio tower i assume) If you need to touch the object to get electrified, it's not different than holding an electric cable, that isn't wave getting thrown all around the place, it's just putting a branch on an electrical source.

Being an asshole and a conservative is about the same. It's nice that they are more leaning towards anarchism now. I hope they didn't have time to do damage to others while being conservative/alt-right.

I always wary of people as some proclaim being anarchists, feminists, etc. but don't actually apply it. I don't mean direct action but simply being a decent person.
