    Add to that religion and sexuality. And saying anything that goes against mainstream opinions.

    The infraction system is hands down the dumbest and most infuriating system I've ever seen on any forum. And I've been part of many much larger forums where somehow I don't seem to get punished or moderated for the exact same behavior...

    I know for a fact that some people created their own communities on discord because the moderation on MMO-C is too extreme.
    I've been here for like over 13 years (lost the account info on an account that had over 4,000 posts) and the literal only time I ever get infractions is for flaming when I flat out call someone a fucking idiot, lol.

    And a radical SJW echo chamber is better...?

    The aim should be a neutral forum. Without politics.

    What you view as incapable I view as spirited discussion. The mods on MMO-C if they had their way would have us post in the equivalent style of the english courts, in makeup, whigs and robes. Never speaking out of turn, never getting angry, never showing any emotion whatsoever.

    In short...the mods on mmo-c are basically attempting to recreate equilibrium.

    IDK it's fun to poke holes in conspiracy theories as much as it is to defend the conspiracy theories. It's when people come across like they KNOW FOR A FACT! that X is Y and Z is Y too that it goes off the rails and they get mad and start calling people names. Then again at one time "The Earth is a sphere" was just a conspiracy theory.
    Me thinks Chromie has a whole lot of splaining to do!

    I usually feel it's not moderated enough. Certain turnip farmers should have been shitcanned ages a go. Or certain alt-right t-word lunatics who keep regurgitating bullshit for 30+ pages straight. Tired of seeing people meticulously countering any and all crap they (almost always the same people) spew, and basically only stopping after someone gets banned or the thread locked.

    There are plenty of forums that match your description if you want those. I don't think MMO-C wants to open that can of worms.

    They tried in the past and it just made the site a lot worse for any other types of conversations.
    If you reply to me with a full essay I'm probably not going to bother reading it, sorry.

    Always makes me curious as to how the Greeks got it right thousands of years ago only for some idiot to start pushing the Flat Earth model all over again. Is this a case of things looping back around like fashion trends?

    You're free to go somewhere else or make your own website if you don't wanna follow site rules. No one forces you to come here.

    100% Agree with the first sentence.

    As to the infraction system, at its core it's a way to not get banned the first time a moderator takes action. The problem with moderators however is that they are like your entry-level monkey job, they are having to make decisions on things that don't really have a handbook for. There are *way* too many gray area things that the mod or the mod's mood is going to depend on what happens to you.

    As to having your posts moderated, you do realize that the size of forum, or hell even the "type" (gaming, movies, etc) of forum you visit has absolutely no bearing on whether you'll be moderated? If you go join a furries forum for 12-year olds, you'll be moderated for a lot less than a car forum for 30-year olds.

    Like you said, the problem seems to come when you have the slightest opinion against the mod looking at the reported post, talk facts about things that go "against the grain", etc. Don't get me wrong people do abuse the fuck out of the report option as well and that in itself should be something that's looked at but still.

    you can't even talk about pr.iv.ate servers or even spell the word "tr0.ll" that you get automatically flagged and banned
    You don't understand. Having an unpayed full time job that no one appreciates is the magic of classic.

    It's about the journey. The journey into depression. The journey of running a daycare full of middle-aged alcoholics ignoring their SOs and avoiding social engagements to fulfill something they wanted 15 years ago before everyone realized it's not hard at all.

    Instead of banning those discussions why not just ban the toxic people?

    "So the fact you can't give me a straight answer and choose to be repulsive and childish is my fault? Okay champ, let me know how being that righteous and foolish works out for you in life"

    When I asked if the mod who banned me could prove I was trolling (I wasn't) - guess who never got a reply?

    It objectively has worse moderation than 4chan, and that's impressive. Luckily it's not like I pay to be here or have to deal with ads - but I would take this place more seriously if they had actual semi-decent mods
    Yeah I've had the same bullshit thrown at me once or twice with similar results. I wouldn't go as far as to say
    it's worse than 4chan (pretty sure that place is still the wild west in terms of moderation), but "good" and
    "fair" moderation here is few and far between.

    This. I can name some once good mods that have become power-hungry, bias, and easily triggered if you even have the slightest opinion that's different from theirs. Oh and don't let yourself be someone they don't like! Anything that you post will be considering as "trolling". Oh and people can insult you and you can report them and nothing happens to them. Take up for yourself though? INFRACTED.

    I get it, there has to be some control, but sometimes it goes overboard.
    I made a post about being sick of rioting and they banned me for me. It was a genuine post, not a troll post but yet they still banned me.
    I contacted the legal council for the parent company and they immediately unbanned me.

    Mods are good in most cases.

    this. mod's mood is bad? youre in trouble. and no point to appeal any infraction, you get no response. they read it and don't reply. same thing when you message a blue or they'll just take up for the greens.
