This is ridiculous fear-mongering, u/Graphenium is being intentionally misleading.

It's always been the policy for politics to be opt-in, when browsing via communities.win. In fact, until two weeks ago, none of the sites with their own domains were included on the front page at all.

Two weeks ago, we added the three "topics" of Politics, NSFW, and Other for the front page. By default, users have the Politics topic disabled.

This was the first time any of the sites with standalone domains were featured on the front page, and we were clear that politically focused communities would be tagged as political communities.

This policy has not been at all swayed by any users, we have remained consistent on it.

Politics is opt-in.

Huh so you guys can rapidly show up to squelch dissent but can’t answer any of my questions.

Did y’all delete ragnars account or was he so embarrassed by my exposing his shilling, or had his account served its purposes?

How is this sub “politics”

Doggos 11 points ago +14 / -3

Anything that one could reasonable argue is politics should be tagged as politics based on our current plan.

Let's look at the top 10 posts here currently.

  • vaccine
  • vaccine
  • Biden
  • you
  • vaccine
  • election
  • not sure, some video
  • vaccine
  • not political
  • covid

It's not a bad thing that this community is political. I love this community. I think it's hard to argue that it shouldn't be tagged as politics, though.

What the fuck? Vaccines are “politics” now? ...Or do you just not want “anti-vaxx science denialism” on the front page?

I Agree with you. Uniparty appears lockstep on vaccine. But the argument you made was that vaccine was not political. It IS. I do follow your greater argument too that this change in site policy is a slippery slope. Sorry if I was patronizing . Wasn't really my intent. Just over all still really appreciate this site and don't want to believe it is/will get corrupted. Lol. As in im blindly/naively trusting plan.

If both political parties (realistically, not just both, but every major party on fucking earth) agrees on the vaccine, how is a discussion of it “political”?

COVID and the vaccine have obviously been politicised.

We're going to be prioritising the home feed so that users can customise their experience.

History has been politicized, is a discussion on that “politics” now?

Race has been politicized, is a discussion on that “politics” now?

Humor has been politicized, is a discussion on that “politics” now?

Religion has been politicized, is a discussion on that “politics” now?

Life has been politicized, is a discussion on that “politics” now?

Totally unable to grasp language.

The vaccine is supported by both parties, so clearly you guys are using some crazy definition of politics to reach this conclusion.

Or you don’t want things that are “off-putting” to normies on the front page. That’s fine, but that’s a moderation issue within a community, not one that can be solved by slapping the label “politics” on it and treating it like retard containment. That’s how /b/ started and we all know how 4chan turned out. Not to mention Reddit’s quarantining of TD through various backend manipulations...

Politics is opt-in.

POL'ITICS, noun - "the science of government; that part of ethics which consists in the regulation and government, for the preservation of its safety, peace and prosperity".

A forum represents the jurisdiction over its participants; the moderators the law enforcement. If one is under control by others; all is political. The opt-in aka consent by free will; came before the forum; the internet; the PC etc.

What now is called opt-in represents a deception to cover up the chain of command already established. Just like up/down voting, and division into sub-forums, this all represents a suggested substitute choice.

So they're going to remove conspracies.win from the front feed? That's pretty fucking gay if you ask me

Graphenium [S] -1 points ago +5 / -6

Yep and it’s mostly all at the request of that “Ragnar” power-user queer with 92,000 (!!!!!!) comment karma, and his fleet of alts.

I know for a fact he has atleast 6 accounts if not way more - he used them to flex (such a sad life) on me once by downvoting me on 6 different accounts within a minute of my posting (and not a single vote on it in the two days since lmao)

They want to destroy this place as well. Just leave us alone.

If you look at his criticisms, they seem to solely fixate on {noticing patterns}. This place is a little too woke for the “trust the plan” shills that run things, I guess.

Just like on reddit, if this happens a series of consequential actions will occur.

By default, Conspiracies will be hidden from c/all and c/home (because you are unsubscribed by default).

Thus, for the best content of the sub to be seen by anyone who isn’t already here means it would need to be cross posted to, for example, c/general, or c/health or whatever.

But wait, those subs are all now “moderated” by faggots like u/ragnar_danneskjold (after these changes, right now the mods are just the admins themselves for most subs). You’ve been banned for “off topic posting”, you’re told “there’s already a sub for your garbage”. You’re then “blocked” by the autistic cripple in a breath powered wheelchair, I mean moderator.

Fin.
