COVID and the vaccine have obviously been politicised.

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

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.

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.

I'm not the only person with the code. We give it to as few people as possible. The rogue individual is the only moderator who asked for the code. Why did he want the code? He can't code. He wanted to reuse and conduct a full takeover of 'thedonald.win'. That's our conclusion, at least.

Code code code.

I don't believe the platform (in this case it's "Win", which hosts a number of different communities) should be making any decisions like that.

I believe censorship is wrong, and I very strongly support freedom of speech (even though I don't particularly utilize it).

I don't think that banning people for disagreeing is good for the health of a community, but it's also not a platform's place to create or enforce rules for communities.

Unless a Win community permits posting illegal content (such as illegal porn), we won't take any action.

Perfectly valid concern. I am responsible for the development of all the Win sites, so naturally I was a moderator here before release, and simply have not yet removed myself. Axo is still the top mod here.
