I just had to remove about 15 posts, (and someone kept making new accounts) from atlantic and variety, from people claiming we’re homophobic?

I just added a harsher signup and posting timeout as a short fix, which I don’t really like doing, but I have shit to do today and I have no choice.

edit: To clarify the mod policy here, homophobia / transphobia is a bannable offense.

I wouldn’t hesitate to remove explicitly homophobic or racist posts, and I don’t hesitate to remove western propo either (at least for now, until we decide what sectarianism is allowed here)

I think we need to ban online anarchists in its entirety, the Anarco-communists dont tend to be too bad, but the rest need to get the hell out of here, they’ve showed that they have not come in good will, and came to attack the “tankie red fascists” and there can and will be no left unity with anti-communists, white chauvinists, or pro-imperialists. Let them post what they want on Raddle if they want to be confrontational they can stay on Reddit, we need a place for MLs without threat of getting couped or brigaded by these guys, and free from pro-west spam posting.

Yeah anarchists are shit and will always be shit

But at least I can respect IRL anarchists who seem to be much better

Online anarchists are 15 yr olds that dont like capitalism but at the same time swallow every single piece of propaganda against previous socialist states and 3rd world countries that aren’t banana republics for western consumerism

So far, they’ve been only from atlantic, guardian, and variety, very anticommunist western news sources known for completely unsourced lies about VZ, China, Russia, NK, etc.

edit: To clarify the mod policy here, homophobia / transphobia is a bannable offense.

Not believing completely unsourced articles from western news companies owned by tech billionares about muh russia or china isn’t.

@vendemiaire

Then there should be an actual rule against those sources in the sub, not just banning people ad-hoc for breaking an unspoken agreement.

Fascism is when I get banned from communist websites, and the more accounts I create the fascismer it is.

Yes, twentieth century society was very homophobic. Yes, twenty-first century society is still very homophobic. No, using The Gulag Archipelago as a source should not be accepted here.

What point are you trying to make, Very Online Anarchist:trade_mark:?

Homophobia is bad and we should fight it always. But signing up to a site and making baseless accusations is not the way to do that.

@vendemiaire

I’m not agreeing with everyone else that just doing this automatically counts as homophobic, but the modlog is public. People can see what’s happening.

I’m not one of the people brigading, just pointing it out. The articles were first removed before all this started.

I dont know why he initially deleted that post, but it was reposted like 10 times, and that is definitely not the right way to handle a disagreement. Neither is brigading from another site.

I made a thread in /c/lgbt to talk about it. Fighting each other won’t help anything. https://lemmygrad.ml/post/508

Why would they brigade this site with what, 5 semi active mls?

Oh yeah…Theyre anarchists

All we can do is to laugh as we gaze at this spectacle, for one cannot help laughing when one sees a man fighting his own imagination, smashing his own inventions, while at the same time heatedly asserting that he is smashing his opponent.

It should be AFAIK. Currently the sidebar says “for anything and everything to do with the LGBT+ community.” If it’s considered a violation of sitewide rules, that’s out of my hands I guess.

Hmm…apparently the reason is because it’s an Atlantic article? We should probably have a /c/lgbt sub-wide discussion to clarify these issues.

Like I said, purely as a mod, I agree just removing posts without prior warning is a bit much, but I wish everyone could have a productive discussion about this. Dividing ourselves because of drama is just what reactionaries want.

I mean, people who censor and ban you for opposing homophobia ARE reactionaries by any definition.

Stop brigading please. Go to raddle, or reddit, you already have a space there to try to link marxism to homophobia.

Discussion Community for fellow Marxist-Leninists and other Marxists.

Rules for /c/communism

Rules that visitors must follow to participate. May be used as reasons to report or ban.

  1. No non-marxists

This subreddit is here to facilitate discussion between marxists.

There are other communities aimed at helping along new communists. This community isn’t here to convert naysayers to marxism.

If you are a member of the police, armed forces, or any other part of the repressive state apparatus of capitalist nations, you will be banned.

  1. No oppressive language

Do not attempt to justify your use of oppressive language.

Doing this will almost assuredly result in a ban. Accept the criticism in a principled manner, edit your post or comment accordingly, and move on, learning from your mistake.

We believe that speech, like everything else, has a class character, and that some speech can be oppressive. This is why speech that is patriarchal, white supremacist, cissupremacist, homophobic, ableist, or otherwise oppressive is banned.

TERF is not a slur.

  1. No low quality or off-topic posts

Posts that are low-effort or otherwise irrelevant will be removed.

This is not a place to engage in meta-drama or discuss random reactionaries on lemmy or anywhere else.

This includes memes and circlejerking.

This includes most images, such as random books or memorabilia you found.

We ask that amerikan posters refrain from posting about US bourgeois politics. The rest of the world really doesn’t care that much.

  1. No basic questions about marxism

Posts asking entry-level questions will be removed.

Questions like “What is Maoism?” or “Why do Stalinists believe what they do?” will be removed, as they are not the focus on this forum.

  1. No sectarianism

Marxists of all tendencies are welcome here.

Refrain from sectarianism, defined here as unprincipled criticism. Posts trash-talking a certain tendency or marxist figure will be removed. Circlejerking, throwing insults around, and other pettiness is unacceptable.

If criticisms must be made, make them in a principled manner, applying Marxist analysis.

The goal of this subreddit is the accretion of theory and knowledge and the promotion of quality discussion and criticism.

Check out ProleWiki for a communist wikipedia.
