The moderation on DT is so laughably bad and the safe space snowflakes are mostly to blame.  

Literally everything going on in the news right now is political and y’all are seriously trying to keep politics out of a current events forum? lol ok

It’s been entertaining watching this shit show but with the way events are developing, I’m skeptical if y’all can keep up these arbitrary enforcement practices, it must be exhausting. 

Good luck and god bless tho! 

So let’s see, there were multiple complaints in the Portland thread that the topic was political, why are you allowing this in DT, etc...and now that it’s moved, there’s complaints that it was kept off DT.

But it’s the moderation that’s arbitrary, ok.

I'm just baffled by what part of "non-political current events" is hard to understand. If politics can't be separated from a current event, an obvious pigpen has already been provided for that topic. 

Then again, there's a pretty obvious bit of Goofy-level mendacity involved in saying "garsh I don't WANT it to be political but it just IS, goldurnit, hyuk hyuk."

The problem is that issues are extremely serious regardless of the politics of them. 

An unmarked military style police force abducting private American citizens is active in one of our major cities. That's a big fucking deal and needs a Daily Texan thread. 

I'm not going to ban people for telling others to use their fucking brains and/or challenging beliefs based on fucking figments of their imagination on something that serious.

CHAZ - 30 page thread full of Infowars, dog whistling, and right wing circle jerking. No problemo!

Secret Police - 3 pages of talk about civil rights and unmarked federal/military policing arrests and disappearing. Too political!

Fucks sake.

You’re a lot like parsley.  Add absolutely nothing, take up useless space, and have no taste.

This thread is hilarious. We have an aggy website owner acting like a gigantic baby, and the LSU socialist complaining because his insane political views aren’t being represented enough. 
 

Why does this website have any representation of the University of Texas again?

Dunno maybe you should find a new site though since this one is overrun by a bunch of people trying to ruin your perspective on America.

He’s not wrong. The political nuts here go ape shit when they can’t discuss their ideas everywhere. Clearly they’re not happy with their echo chamber, and therefore venture into other forums including DT in search of arguments.  And, you are an Aggie. 

I like this place but visit it less frequently than I otherwise would because these idiots kill DT for me.  That wasn’t always the case. It’s fatiguing and I just go elsewhere.

Motherfucker feds are snatching people off the street and won't leave a state even after being requested by their governor and legislature. That's martial law, and it's a current event. Sorry it's hard to separate politics from discussion of that.

I would bet this site's traffic is maybe 3/4 of what is was on Shaggy and its predominately because of this.

I don't have an issue with you; but didn't you just publicly rant and rave about someone fucking with you on the board?  I'm not saying it was unjustified, it's just unusual as fuck to hear this post, given the recent circumstances.   Tears must have dried up real crusty-like.

Sure. You can describe it however you'd like, I just thought it was interesting that you were saying other posters "just can't help it" when you are one of the very small handful of posters who has lacked the maturity to follow the literal one single rule that has ever been posted on the DT to the point where you were banned for it.

It’s not a shot at you or the moderators. I would guess traffic wasn’t the same before the pandemic started. I waste as much time on this site as anyone and I’m thankful for it. Maybe some of the vitriol will die down once the pandemic is over, but I doubt it. IMO, that vitriol is what is causing people not to post and it was there before the pandemic began. Regardless, I’ll continue to waste time here because I enjoy the conversations and the laughs this place generates when it’s not being hateful.

This is stone oak 3 hours ago yet again injecting political argumentation into DT.

No one had discussed anything even vague or remotely political. He's responding obliquely to me claiming that Jeffrey Epstein was assassinated and he assumes I mean by Republicans (?lol?) because his brain is so thoroughly captured by political mania that it is literally the only lens through which he can view current events.

I actually think that's a huge problem here; it's not that the discussion is political, but the mental translator many have just translates it into political terms as you process what someone else is saying.

The huge problem is you, Hugo and many others that never post out of CR are now frequently posting in DT and here. You’re like people who move into the neighborhood and put a couch on your porch and a car on cinder blocks on the front yard. I just want to leave.

So you call the board police to come take me away.  The analogy between the protesters/police cannot be understated here.

@blacklab I’ll take my warning. But I won’t stop calling out @stone oak for following me around and negging me. 

You have a moderation problem and a troll issue. 

So you’re getting a little taste of what I have gotten from your CR pals like Upper Westside and Calihorn who do the same shit to those of us on the right. Y’all crowdsourced banned EMAWesome just because of his political opinions. To neg someone’s political opinions on the POLITICS BOARD when they’re not trolling is an example of the hatred of free speech and cancel culture tactics by the left. What is the purpose of the CR cabal’s negging of the right? It is the same pussy ass reasons the Twitter mob comes after folks - y’all don’t want to hear or engage with folks who have different viewpoints. Fuck you and your pussy ass cunts in the cesspool.

Yeah when much of the world is at home and can’t really do much, I’m sure it’s purely the lack of sports.

It's not negging posts that are conservative, it's negging posts that are full of fallacies and have zero supporting evidence. And usually are propagating lies from the White House under the guise of "jUsT aSkInG qUeStIoNs". The negs come when butthurt snowflakes like yourself cry foul after being unable to actually support your position with evidence instead of rhetoric.

Sorry you can't post your wishes of shooting immigrants in the CR anymore. I personally think the place is better off without extremists with violent wishes, but to each their own.
