Can you rewrite it in Python? I swear I'll totally commit myself to helping out if it's written in Python!

In all seriousness, good job. Looking forward to studying the inner workings of this.

On the other hand, unless you really like pictures of your chin, that camera doesn't have much purpose at all.

I've gone ahead and implemented some blockquote styling with your code as the basis. It goes further by decreasing the contrast of the quoted text, so the rest of the post stands out. I hope people will like it.

Unfortunately, your patch still wasn't usable without modifications. I've become very bitter about putting in all the work to implement things that people request. While you actually did provide code for a change (thanks!), I wish you would have set up a dev environment and tested your modifications to lower my workload.

dividing an otherwise strong community based on something as ridiculous as skin colour is wrong, no matter what

Have you any idea how ridiculous it is to draw parallels between racism and what happened here? You are downplaying actual, systemic racism. This is an example of the low-key bigotry I'm talking about.

No one is calling for the community to be divided by factors like skin colour or sexuality. Rather, you are calling for unity between those who fight against this division and the bigots who spit in their faces. Fuck unity with bigots.

On a side note, didn't you forgive one of the peons a little bit too easy even after asking for punishment, while the other fool is being dragged to hell even after begging for mercy, sup with that agenda?

I have no agenda. I saw a big influx in racist & queerphobic attitudes in a small period of time, and decided to call it out after individual conversations proved fruitless. One person admitted fault, the other has continued to double down on their problematic behaviour.

Calling me a white supremacist and queerphobe for that is way too much.

No where did I explicitly call you 'a white supremacist and queerphobe', but you've certainly said questionable stuff pertaining to white supremacy and queerphobia. Your continuing insistence that the argument about racism amounts to a 'disagreement on definitions' makes me very sceptical of you, because it shows that you really haven't understood the core of the issue at all. Please consider the possibility that even self-described leftists like yourself are largely products of your environments, and so attitudes pertaining to white supremacy and patriarchy must be unlearnt.

but I'm not good with PHP.

I don't think this is the issue, though. The frontend code (HTML, CSS, JS) is completely decoupled from the PHP code, but very few people contribute to that either.

Everyone who uses computers and phones is familiar with user interfaces, and has their own expectations of how they should behave. Just being sent MS Paint mockups (like this one I made) of how something ought to look like would be of much help, since UI isn't my field of expertise.

I don't think I'm going to burn out. I just feel a bit salty after someone sent me a disrespectful email a few days ago, which made me think about the unequal relationship between maintainers and consumers of free software.

For the record, this needs to be fixed so I can add more sorting/filtering options. Without a proper UI that doesn't occupy all the space, I won't be adding things like the linear view that was discussed some time ago, or options for limiting top/controversial/most commented to the last [your selection here] days.
