Deaf ears? Hardly. But the old saying "actions speak louder than words" apply here and I haven't been convinced. In this thread alone which was made by a content maker who had talked to moderators about allowing a free discussion on the subject, the moderating staff are swinging the banhammer around almost at random with the best comparison being a crackhead operating a wrecking ball.sky14kemea said:Thanks for being civil and telling us about what you think we could do better directly.LordLundar said:Nothing new. They allow posters who have posted essentially hate speech to go unopposed but if you dare mention you have adblock running or, heaven forbid question their practices you get flagged immediately. I also suspect that disputing the flag is a waste of time because it goes to the same mod that flagged you in the first place who simply dumps the complaint. Put it simply, the way the mods act, I don't expect much (if anything) in the way of integrity.
I'm done with this site. The content doesn't justify the scatter shot enforcement by the moderators who seem to be more interested in protecting their own image than the integrity of the website.
If posts are missed for moderation, it's because we can't be everywhere at once. We rely a lot on the report queue which is filled with reports from normal users. Chances are if a post got wrathed, it got flagged by someone here, not by a Mod.
As for the Appeals queue, we've said this many times in every thread complaining about Moderators. The Mods do not run the Appeals queue. Only Site Staff get to see those appeals and overturn those decisions. There is a 0% chance that your appeal will be seen by whoever gave you an infraction.
If this falls on deaf ears, please feel free to leave anyway.
There is a prioritization issue here where comments made specifically to start flame wars gets a lower priority compared to someone saying the moderating group are behaving poorly and abusing their powers.
So no, not deaf ears, but not convinced I'm being told the truth. Maybe when there's some proper oversight on the moderators I'll return, but I don't see that happening anytime soon.
