This tweet is from 2019 and Coma doesn't even have a twitter anymore apparently. Therefore I'm anchoring this to avoid confusion.
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.
