On a daily basis we get threads regarding this topic which devolve into endless autistic screeching, moralizing, thinly veiled or mask off reactionary judgements, essentialism, bastardization of materialism, conflation of gender and sex, liberal crybullying, woke scolding, false flagging, without the conversation ever moving anywhere and overall it's just very tiresome to deal with to the point that it would be necessary to do something about this before it completely undermines the already lack luster quality of the site.

If nothing is done, we might as well all just stop posting here and leave the Culture Warriors to do their thing until they cause yet another split.


Try >>>/sfw/


Aaaw >>> doesn't work for overboards

Try https://leftypol.org/sfw/

It filters out si/b/eria


If the site mods plan to continue the usage of word filters on slurs, it should at least be applied evenly to other slurs of historically marginalized folks instead of simply the pair of slurs or so that are currently in effect.

Frankly, though, the filters should be removed.

There are excellent posts posted that become incomprehensible to nonimageboard users because of the word filters. Instead the rules should be made more accessible and probably better enforced against raiders and slide threads, which are far more detrimental than a couple of bad words. Also, the mods should post always with the modtag on while they are on their tenures.




As an a transhumanist (like, an actual anarcho-transhumanist) it has been mildly annoying having the slur word filter lead to some accidental conflation. Particularly when there are reactionaries running around casting transgender people as some kind of capitalist-transhumanist plot. I did find the wordfilter funny though.


>Also, the mods should post always with the modtag on while they are on their tenures.
People are already annoyed by avatarfagging. I think that would simply increase discontent with moderators over non-issues.


In defense of the current slur filter: it's purpose isn't protecting any group. It's there to troll raiders.

>There are excellent posts posted that become incomprehensible to nonimageboard users because of the word filters.

What excellent posts are calling people offensive slurs?


Kys faggot.


>which devolve into endless autistic screeching
this could very quickly devolve into everything i don't like is autistic
this is true
>thinly veiled or mask off reactionary judgements
that might also be an opportunity to change minds of lurkers if proper refutations are made.
>essentialism, bastardization of materialism
nobody here is free from idealism honestly, it would be helpful if we could level up together
>conflation of gender and sex
You can't enforce this. The gender identities separate from sex that were recently invented or discovered, aren't yet scientifically verified. At the moment they are just based on people saying that they feel a certain way or another. That's good enough for sexual preferences that don't apply to everybody, but if you apply new baseline-categories to all people you have to be able to independently verify that stuff. (I don't feel like i have a gender separate from my sex and I will not accept you applying this to me, unless you have evidence, i also don't have a race or soul, nor am i possessed by demons, and i would be furiously angry, if you tried to contradict me on this)
There also is a strategical problem you would re-open the door for white supremacy, they could easily change it from hwhite race to hwhite gender. Don't look at how it is being used right now, look at how it could be abused. Technically speaking purely self professed genders are based on essentialism and it's not a materialist analysis if you have to accept it on faith. So you are breaking your own rules.
can somebody explain to me what that is, i read the dictionary definition: "harassing others while claiming to be the victim"
but i don't really get it.
>woke scolding
it feels like that occurs slightly less now.
>false flagging
how do you tell if this is the case
>without the conversation ever moving anywhere
that is sort of a general thing online, although if you compare it to a few years ago, the stuff like Ay Q and bell curve inforgraphs spamming has declined, racialist essentialism has gotten worse though, there is definitely change but it is glacial, and it's not always improving.
>undermines the already lack luster quality of the site.
We would need a way to get people to read theory, if you could make a bot that posts sections of theory texts and effort-post-copy-pasta based on key words, it might lure more people to read theory.


Better slow than glow.


Truer words have never been spoken.


You'd be better off banning all discussion of the topic if you don't want to see it. Prevents radlibs using it as a wedge topic to seize control of a community and inciting inflammatory responses. Banning one side of the argument only amounts to allowing the other to sperg endlessly. The fact that the ogres were insistent on only banning people who rejected the ideas of Butler, Serano et al is a large part of what revealed them as reddit radlibs. As well as the endless butthurt about reddit's stupidpol (which allows dissent on that topic).


This is how we become org
