A rant about the moderation Sputnik##SgNipD 11/11/2019 (Mon) 16:42:42 No. 2657 [Reply] [Last]
I've already said this before on here but I may as well make a thread dedicated to it.

The mods on /leftypol/ are trash, extremely trash and I think the moderation team on this part of the site needs to be completely changed I know I'm probably pissing in the wind but in all honesty but one of the benefits and points to an imageboard is anonminity and the lack of a circlejerk, the mods don't respect either of these aspects and because of that this site has been seeing less and less users coming into this site the few users that do show up now are mostly redditors, remember that this place isn't Reddit nor is this the moderator's personal circlejerk and that was the main problem with the original /leftypol/ when it went to hell, not the fact that it was run by a tankie or something like that.

tl;dr the mods suck

I am getting rather fed up with the overmoderation around here lately myself. I've started to see mods shutting down discussions when they simply personally don't like them or can't handle the heat. This is the kind of behavior I started to see when 8ch/leftypol/ was going downhill. When this happens even one time it needs to be called out and dealt with, failure to do so builds a culture of impunity and elitism among the mods.

Idpol ban Comrade 07/30/2020 (Thu) 21:53:01 No. 6006 [Reply]
This is unworkable. Who defines idpol? Sorry but I've spent so much time trying to educate radlibs that idpol without class is fascist-adjacent shit, but we don't need to go to the other direction where we simply talk about class without anything else. The world doesn't work like that. Yes idpol is a social construction, but so are the """commonsense"" explanations as to why capitalism spread (this is literally in marx btw). What was wrong with having a thread about it? Are we seriously going to have a leftypol where talking about racism is banned on site, but we can have a e-celeb general? Come on, I thought this place was supposed to be better than that? Are we not allowed to discuss the New Afrikan Black Panthers anymore? Theodore Allen? Stuart Hall? B.R.Ambedkar? Fred Hampton? Something I've realised (and there was a thread by someone else about this recently) is that all the things we despise "idpol" for, the hysteria, the categorisation of victim/oppressor dynamics..these are already being talked about by the people in that mileu. If you want to ban bait threads from tourists fine, but that should already be covered in the rules, but all that's going to happen is that people having meaningful conversations about the intersection of race, gender and class in a capitalist society are going to be disciplined into second guessing themselves because they will wonder if their post will be banned. Say goodbye to any effort posting on that front. Not to mention that this will also encourage bad faith posters to try and shut down threads or posters they don't like by screaming "IDPOL" and mashing the report button. The current sticky in leftypol doesn't say anything clear. it just says "the mods will crackdown". That's not good enough. Be clear about what will and what won't be tolerated.

>>8532 not a bullshit buzzphrase. if you can't understand gender, sexuality, or race as a dialectical then you're not a marxist just a joke
>>8544 They are bullshit buzzphrases. There is no dialectical reasoning behind "non-cis gender helicopter-kins" It's the kind of autism that wouldn't even pass Marx's, Lenin's, Engels', Stalin's or Castro's minds and is blatant attention whoring by people whose egos are alienated by capitalist aimlessness and who search for an identity in anything, even made up sexual rubbish.

leftypol (even in 8ch days 6 years ago) has always been a bit too liberal with calling shit idpol but a recent trend of labeling LGBT issues as 'bourgeois decadence' is both a regression in thought and without any real precedent. Aside from Paul Dickblast, I'm not aware of any popular Marxists who are so avowedly anti-lgbt.

>>8415 To be fair, we have a 'special relationship' with /pol/. There are probably other places that are better for garnering converts, but there's probably nowhere that is better than /leftypol/ to 'acclimatise' a /pol/ack to leftism. In addition, I see redpilling a fascist as infinitely more valuable than making a left-libertarian mildly less SJW-fied, though that is still a good thing. We have reached out to other places than /pol/ in the past, though usually not in an official capacity, for example reddit, Facebook, and so on. Also, I have now learned that tweet is from 2019 so it is practically ancient history in internet terms. Thank you for your concern however. We do value feedback.
>>8418 >we have a 'special relationship' with /pol/ >I see redpilling a fascist as [...] valuable Can I ask why you are of this opinion? I don't agree and consider /pol/ to be small and increasingly irrelevant -- even if they become relevant - they become relevant in the manner in which we need to have strong numbers in a red army to neutralize them, before they succeed in acting at the behest of the conservation of capital. >infinitely more valuable than making a left-libertarian mildly less SJW-fied Meanwhile, the demographic of "liberal" (in the broadest sense of the term) is by far larger, more relevant, and pertinent to our immediate work: in ridding the proletariat of false consciousness, in countering dominant ideology succinctly, in knowing what arguments to prioritize to the average person (an unconscious liberal) and why that is. This may sound easy, but it's not. It requires deep philosophical, historical, economic, sociological and lately ecological understanding on the part of our side. Liberals rely on modern economics, psychology, sociology, public relations, massmedia... Nazis rely on deprecated anthropology from a century ago and appeals to emotion. Do we want to be influential? Because I think that we could be. We aren't now.
>>8424 I agree that converting liberals is important and if we do so, then awesome, but our website format is offputting to Reddit/Facebook/Twitter type liberals, so we are not the best people to convince them, probably. I also think that fascists are a more immediate danger to the left/to society than the average liberal. If we convert fascists, we might actually stop people from being killed in eg mass shootings. Now, perhaps the people far gone enough to do that stuff could never be convinced, but even so they will be less encouraged without their echo chamber. To sum up, I would like to attract all people possible, but we can't throw away what people like about the site to chase liberals or any group in particular.
>>8427 >Now, perhaps the people far gone enough to do that stuff could never be convinced I'm reasoning like this because the people I grew up around that actually went fascist had those influences in the household (i.e. they were conditioned into these sets of beliefs by significant personal influences in their lives) and so to me they indeed do seem entirely far-gone. This usually isn't the case for people that base their evaluations on liberal presuppositions, especially because Marxism has been explicitly developed as a critique for this, but also because liberalism at least tries to rely on logic, reason, science, even though the manner in which they do is incorrect. >we can't throw away what people like about the site There's so much more (for me at least) to chan culture than being a reaction to /pol/. That's why people often experience nostalgic feelings when encountering /GET/ for the first time (not that I'm putting GET on a pedestal here, but it's a good referential example). I don't see why we couldn't have wide influence if we leveraged our hand well. Look up the history of LulzSec for example. That was an emergent phenomenon of an anonoymous imageboard before /pol/ had ideological hegemony over the political side of chans. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Op_Payback#Operation_Avenge_Assange https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LulzSec Not saying we should directly do things like this, just that maybe we should broaden our prospective horizons of what's possible.
>>8427 >our website format is offputting to Reddit/Facebook/Twitter type liberals Could've fooled me with the constant threads about what literal whos are doing on social media shit.

Why does this board no longer allow dissent? When I first started posting on the old /leftypol/ on 8ch over 4 years ago I was drawn to it precisely because of its unrestricted nature. But now I get regularly hit with bans for making unpopular posts despite providing plenty of evidence for my views and always seeking to engage people rationally. Yet I get called "schizo" just for being frustrated with the world and seeking to convince others. I fear within a year or two /leftypol/ will be totally dead.

Am I going to get banned here? Comrade 08/07/2019 (Wed) 02:16:17 No. 1365 [Reply] [Last]
I didn't know where to post this so I'm assuming the meta board is the place for such questions.

/pol/ refugee here. I'm going to be completely honest, I'm a Fascist. Well, Fascist in terms of 'worldview' but politically a Strasserist and here's my beef:

>Don't:
>-attempt to cloak reactionary politics in left-wing rhetoric (Strasserism, "Nazbol" Strasserism, National "Socialism," Zionism, "Die cis scum"/"Kill all white men" SJW shit)

So is the person advertising this place unaware of this? Wtf do I do? Am I not welcome and is anything I say gonna get me banned? I'll be blunt, I've been a 'National Socialist' since 2012, but I was a little 's' socialist. Over the past two years, I've become a big 'S' Socialist. I used to think SJW'ism was Marxist, but it's become very clear this is a product of liberalism and capitalism. I slowly began to see the impact of capitalism and industrialisation. I'm anti-capitalist, big unionist, worker collective anti-'porky'. Is my input allowed on this board? Are threads discussing race, race-class dynamics allowed? I have multiple threads ideas that feel more comfortable here than on /pol/ but frankly, might be better on /pol/ if only to bring others over to anti-capital ideas. Or at least to oppose 'conservatism'. I wouldn't know how to not 'cloak' my views in left-rhetoric when those are my views and I hold an economically left but socially hard right perspective.

Or should I take the hint and go elsewhere? I don't know why you'd advertise this with such an odd rule which clearly tells people like us to get lost.

Also, no offense, but this interface looks like shit, is there a way to change the colours and fonts?

>>8379 M8, the big problem we're having is that there are mods voting for Biden and who think that liberal idpol is A-OK. These same mods have ignored reported /pol/-posting until it complaints of said /pol/-shit is explicitly spammed in /gulag/. Meanwhile liberal idpol and sectarian baitposting is left up for days or weeks on end. Then when someone makes a post critical of liberal idpol it gets deleted because the language or terms used aren't 'PC' despite us being a politically incorrect site. Moreover, /b/ is being moderated irrationally, with porn being spoilered by mods for no reason, them deleting content for no given reason and again, ignoring posts of literal /pol/propaganda. Moderation needs to be cleaned up and to write and follow some basic ESTABLISHED rules, which I have suggested and have been utterly ignored >>>/gulag/7986 TL;DR The top of the page in /leftypol/ states "no idpol or sectarianism" yet we don't see this being done consistently or fairly. People have written some fair guides for Global rules, use them please.

This tweet is from 2019 and Coma doesn't even have a twitter anymore apparently. Therefore I'm anchoring this to avoid confusion. >>8384 The mod team is made up of a cross section of ideologies, and yes that includes some element of reformism. Mods can have their own views about the election and whatever else. I would like to point out that we haven't banned everyone who says they're voting for Trump so why should we do the reverse? As for liberal idpol, please see the manifesto, which addresses this topic (in a manner of speaking), here it is; "An important part of /leftypol/’s unique character is our opposition to identity politics. We believe that conflicts between genders, races, sexualities, and so on are distractions from the wider class struggle that are intentionally fanned by the ruling class. This does not mean that oppression based on personal characteristics does not exist, but that it should be approached from an egalitarian perspective which is not personally accusatory and does not assign ‘victim’ and ‘oppressor’ groups. The rights of individuals to live according to their own wishes is a fundamental part of leftism." We try to moderate according to that definition. Yes, we do still disagree sometimes, and no, there is no perfect definition of what is and isn't idpol. >Then when someone makes a post critical of liberal idpol it gets deleted because the language or terms used aren't 'PC' despite us being a politically incorrect site. We protect your right to say 'stupid' and similar things that Reddit doesn't like, as for 'faggot', 'nigger', etc etc, those terms are allowed only at our discretion, if we feel they contribute to a genuinely reactionary post they may well merit its deletion. Communism is politically incorrect but there is nothing inherently brave about screaming racial epithets into the wind. >Moreover, /b/ is being moderated irrationally, with porn being spoilered by mods for no reason, them deleting content for no given reason and again, ignoring posts of literal /pol/propaganda. /b/ is still experimental and we are still deciding what the rules should be. For now we have decided to spoiler porn in OPs. Other stuff is still up in the air.

Aside from it just being dumb and immature for you guys to filter an actual useful term just because you happen to disagree with the theory behind it, it also breaks any link that has p.m.c in it, since, since it will just get filtered to "people of college". If you're going to have word filters, at least make sure they work properly and don't break shit. pic unrelated
We voted on the filter and I still think it's a good idea. Also, it is rare that a link would happen to have 'PMC' in it. Please use a link shortener in that case. We cannot add spaces to the filter on the current software to eliminate 'filter inside word' issues. That is why IQ is no longer filtered sadly. Answered and anchored.
