Why would you tell someone they are perfect when you only know one thing about them? Being yourself doesn't make you perfect. And in some cases being yourself makes you a threat to other people.

Mods don't really make the decisions here. People discuss it and then vote on it.

Well I guess that's better. Still not as good as having a clear policy on what content is and isn't allowed.

But sure, if you just want a place you can post literally anything on, you'll probably want somewhere else.

"Literally anything," or "literally anything political?" Because the former is another strawman, and the latter might just prove my point.

That was a text book strawman.

My concern is with what gets defined as "sexist" and "propaganda." You might not feel NRA channel videos are propaganda, but a moderator might.

And the NRA channel thing is an example. I could sit here coming up with all kinds of examples, but it just makes more sense to instead to look for a site without a suspicious left or right-leaning slant. I don't like what I'm allowed to see being filtered through someone else's politically skewed lens.

People need to realize that the r/megalinks reddit sub isn't the place to discuss alternates to reddit. Do it in the discord. No one is going to let you use their own platform to drive people away from their platform. It's ridiculous to expect that.

With that said, I'm not convinced raddle is a good alternative. With the far left vibe and threats of censorship for whatever they consider to be hate speech, it doesn't seem like a good place to freely share content. Some movies, video games, music, magazines, etc. will be against their political ideals and I have no reason to believe that they will allow it. If someone wants to upload and share some NRA channel series(for example), they should be allowed to do it. This is right now the biggest concern of the r/megalinks community, and it would be a shame to see people hastily jump ship to the wrong site.
