  • Heads up to the mods and users

    A link to ETC has been shared in the dakka thread about dakkas failure to tackle the issue of users using fascist playbook tactics to lock threads such as the one about the Spanish tournament which didn't eject the neo-nazi.

    So we might potentially be getting some new people who we might want to watch carefully in case they try to use the same tactics here.

    Thread is here in case anyone wants to give it a gander: https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforu...st/802192.page

    I'm kinda surprised Formosa, goldenhorde, and so on aren't here already. Maybe because they know they'd be banned? IDK.

        I don't think the end result of getting banned is what stops them, getting banned is like a badge of honor to show that the snowflakes can't handle a real opinion in their safe space. I think what stops them is that they get shut down within 3-4 posts, which sucks the fun out of trolling and then getting banned.

          They have a much bigger audience for their bullshit there is my feeling

            Probably also because dakka would never ban anyone unless a mod takes a disliking to them.

            They move slowly, could be argued too slowly, but the vast majority of bans are leveled at one side. For example there are a couple of the worst users from the first thread you can't see in this one. Did they ding everyone you and I think deserves it? No. But they did clip some, and some progress is better than none. Unfortunately, the overly soft touch does allow people like Golden horde to just go off on tangents and ruin threads, again and again, without any consequence because he's (apparently) staying just this side of polite (fuck knows how he's 'just this side of polite' though)

          It’s true. There’s no way this forum would allow someone to argue for pages and pages that expelling people openly advocating nazi ideals would be bad.

            To be fair, the apologists on Dakka went a lot further than that.

          Looking through that thread was thoroughly depressing.

              I'll never stop laughing at the one poster who doesn't know what a tankie is.

                I don't quite know what it is, either. I no longer Google various political slang terms, anymore. I don't want them in my search history, and I don't want Google thinking I believe in them.

                feeder, Tankie is honestly a pretty obscure one in my experience. It hasn't been part of political discourse in decades.

                Tannhauser42, Tankie is a pejorative term invented by communists to demean other communists. Basically, it refers to someone who supports authoritarian communism and was used by anti-Stalinists or Trotskyists who espoused other forms of communism. I'm actually curious where they even picked up the term. I'm not aware of it being used much outside the internet as a tongue-in-cheek gag or as a pejorative for people who think Stalin did nothing wrong. I almost never see it outside of communist boards (and this one very funny fanfic I read >.>).

              Upsetting authoritarian types?

              I mean speaking about current day forced labour camps really really pissed people off didn't it?

                Because when your reaction to "could you please not be a cunt?" is "I will not have my speech mandated!" people will fairly rapidly catch on to your persecution complex and direct you to go rant somewhere else. It's not about Chinese labour camps, it's about the gigantic chip on your shoulder.

                  Oh right, I said something you disagreed with. Gotta ban for that

                    Case in point. Your behaviour is not conductive to a fruitful discussion. Creating a strawman to paint yourself as a victim when that's exactly what I accused you of habitually doing in the first place is an interesting strategy though, I'll grant you that.

                    If I called for people to be banned simply because they said something I disagree with I'd be calling for everyone else to be banned. The crux of the matter is not in the disagreement but in the nature of the disagreement.

                    An explicit refusal to follow the rules is probably the most slam-dunk case for a ban I can think of, it's kinda the point of the rules existing. Discussing them is fine, arguing for a change in rules that one thinks is unfair is fine, but you can't exactly be surprised if you get banned while refusing to follow the rules. We already had Zardoz! trying that shtick, didn't work out so well for them.

                      For being a frothing neo-nazi shitbag. Oh sorry, you probably prefer "freethinking fascist apologist."
