Did you even look at their post histories or just add the first people to volunteer?

One of them is running around this sub right now arguing for the dismantling of public education because they didn't enjoy highschool


The top mod started pming me...

Apparently he just accepted the only people who said they wouldn't remove disinformation because that would primarily effect "the right"

Only two did and we chose them, wish we had more not trying to censor the right since some were saying “I’ll remove disinformation and etc.” Which violates one of our policy in giving the right a voice since look disinformation may be bad, but removing them is censorship and our goal is not to reform that echo chamber that was r/politics


This community is fucked.

No one is going to become a mod here unless they agree to let people spread propaganda...

20 years old, no job, far right and emotional unstable. I think we got the perfect candidate!

No, it's worse...

The top mode just pm'ed me saying he only accepted people who said they wouldn't remove disinformation.

Because that would mean more conservative comments got removed, and apparently that's biased and not what this sub is for.

The new mod just defended Trump calling nazis "very fine people."

A civility rule attached to a community that regards platforming fascist misinformation as an obligation just results in mods bending over backwards to make things comfortable for fascists. We've all seen this shit happen on reddit, and I for one don't have the energy to participate in such a community here. I see no reason to provide content to help such a community flourish.

Any suggestions on another politics community that isn't hell-bent on becoming r/anothernazibar?

Welcome and good luck, I’m sure it’s bound to get rowdy around here.

[-] Yarla98 6 points 10 months ago

As with any controversial subjects, it is bound to get rowdy at times.

Remember to wait 30 minutes after eating before moderating, otherwise you’ll get a cramp.
