      Ukraine deserves more help : it’s a shame nuclear threat is preventing that. May you receive all the support you need.

    A heartbreaking post made by a true war victim was the first post here until it was deleted because …well, because of his dire situation. See, he let his heart speak too much and this … against a repugnant troll.
    He then said : “Please forgive my speech…” yet he was banned for a month from WorldNews.

    Moderation work is certainly challenging and yet … i would have hoped for a little more compassion for his situation, yes.

    Thank you for your concern.

    Un post déchirant fait par une vraie victime de guerre fut ici en tête jusqu’à ce qu’il soit supprimé parce que… eh bien parce que son auteur est en situation désastreuse. Voyez, il a trop laissé parler son cœur, et ce contre un troll répugnant.
    Puis il a dit : « S’il vous plaît, pardonnez mon discours… » et a été interdit pendant un mois de WorldNews.

    Le travail de modération est certainement un défi et pourtant … J’aurais espéré un peu plus de compassion, oui.

    Merci de votre sollicitude.

        Since we discussed in private the banning of Serge Tarkovski with a positive outcome, it might be appropriate for you to make one more comment here.

          I’ll mirror the response I gave you in the DM in the interest of transparency:

          I don’t know this user’s history, maybe the admin who performed the mod action has dealt with them in the past, I can’t say. But I kind of agree with your. I would have removed the comment immediately, but most likely would not have banned them.

      Users should know. Will you, or other administrators, issue a statement ?

        No official stance because why would we involve the instance itself into it? We have our personal stances, that’s it.

        @AgreeableLandscape @a_Ha Why would there need to be an official position of the instance? It probably shouldn’t be a problem as long as the admins don’t start modding out contents based on whether or not it supports their opinion

            We have specifically refrained from doing that that on Lemmy.ml

            In fact, there is an ongoing discussion on whether actual, patently false disinformation (climate change isn’t real levels of patently false) should be removed outright or if leaving them up would be more valuable because the community on Lemmy.ml has been pretty good about calling out a lot of misinformation, the argument for that being that pointing out that it’s wrong could be better than hiding it.

            Edit: I see you’re from Lemmygrad, and I also just want to mention that it’s a different instance with different goals and its own rules, so what I say doesn’t apply to that site, because I’m not an admin there.

      Risking nuclear war is bad news for humankind.

      Ha ha! Russia manages to irradiate huge swathes of its own territory pursuing nuclear-powered nuclear ice cream. It’s not 1950 anymore. The Americans have railguns and plasma cannons. Wake up.

        If yankistan is so powerful, why doesnt it intervene militarily in ukraine? Seems like they are very scared.

          Apparently the only way to get funding in the Russian military to slap the word “nuclear” on there. Bonus points for multiple instances. Nostalgia for the glory years, I guess.

          I doubt very much the US is scared. It’s seems more like a cold calculation, to let Russia break itself on the rocks of Ukraine. Plenty of US munitions get sold and no dead American soldiers on the evening news.

              Tired of Putin’s failure to lift himself up by dragging the rest of the world down, for sure. Why do you love him so much? I bet your favorite character in Lord of the Rings was Wormtongue.

                I don’t love Putin, but reality has nothing to do with what you love or hate. I understand how the world financial system works, I understand how Russian economy works, and that’s what’s going to decide how the events unfold. Meanwhile, you built your whole identity around hating Russia and you’ve invented a reality for yourself where Russia is some incompetent petrostate that’s going to collapse.

                  I don’t hate Russia at all. I admire the Russian people. It’s Putin that’s created a mafia state, rewarding corruption that favors him, poisoning his rivals, and perverted the truth. Imagine what Russia could be with Kasparov at the helm. It’s like what could the CCCP have been able to accomplish without Stalin purging anyone with a mind of their own?

      Pretty sure covid madness is what’s happening everywhere outside of China right now. Having lived through two years of how Canada handled it, I’ll take Chinese approach over that any day.

          Actually having lived in Canada for a couple of decades, I disagree that there’s anything better here. Having had to endure the past two years of sheer governmental incompetency finally got me to start learning Chinese.
