It is the responsibility of the moderators of online discussion communities to take necessary action to reduce hateful comments and attitudes in the community.
Here's Your Participation Trophy.
Every soldiers a "hero" regardless.
Depends. What bias does the moderator have. Who decides what is what is acceptable.
That bias will always be there...that is part of the problem. But what can you do I suppose...even if there is a set of rules.
Not if it means removing comments. What's considered "hateful" can be subjective.
No. That's a sure way to lead users to question what else is being erased and a quick way to lose them.
No. Ideas are just ideas. You aren't going to change minds by not allowing people to express their ideas. You'll just drive those people into other areas where their bad ideas can fester and grow.
Also, this whole idea that some people should be shut up or shut away from everyone else just for having ideas you don't like is unsettling. I personally think it is more offensive than these other ideas you'd probably want to ban.
Some online communities do not have moderators. It seems more the responsibility of the community itself to not tolerate the hateful comments. Don't feed the trolls, ignore them.
I have heard many people say that they do not put anyone on ignore like that is a good thing, and then complain about the comments from users who are very consistent with their comments.
If you plumb your upstairs toilet so that the pipe empties into your living room, you should not be surprised with the result.
This user is currently being ignored
Completely disagree. I don't wanna live in some watered down, made-safe-for-me society. Let people say what they are going to say and let natural consequences happen
Why would it be the modifiers sole discretion. We all should be responsible for what we put on the website. Those who lack that responsibility should be shunned by the rest of us.
Free speech =\= consequence free speech. Tony owns this app. If he chooses to ban you for whatever reason he chooses your ass is banned
That's the beauty of the free market. If Tony wants to crack down on your mouthy craploader, he'll alienate his cash flow. So, he may keep a few manageable punks around to boost hits.
So hopefully you'll be on here a while longer.
Love ya Tony! Thx for no bans!
Tony ~is~ a generous god. Others may demand that you stand, but Tony requires only that you install SOH on your Apple, Android or Windows device.
And if you upgrade to the "Power Plan", he will make you the warlord of all Greece*
*Note that Greece is not the country. Terms & conditions apply. Only one per household. Not eligible in every state. Other conditions may -- and proly do -- apply. Offer expires immediately.
Respectful conversation with joking tones
You need to bring it down.
But that problem with that is that mods may adapt different meanings of hate speech. That and they can't monitor every poll at all times. "Mods are sleeping! Hail Hitler!"
Eh.. I'm not sold on mods. I like the self monitoring system of reporting comments ourselves.
The term moderator being used loosely...such as the people who step in and review the situation once a comment is reported.
Hear, hear early bird.😈😎
