Tightening Up Moderation?

Several users on this forum are basically just spamming outright racist BS or completely worthless responses. Any chance this can get cleaned up? Feel like discussion quality is noticeably worse than ~2 years ago.

The weird incel posts are pretty rough too. Although the occasional one is incredibly funny.

that sounds like spam which is against the T&C, get rid of them

I just am a free speech absolutist even when it comes to racism, bigotry, etc., let idiots say idiotic things. in order for good ideas to be able to be freely expressed, we must also have the freedom to have bad ideas

lol you act like the spam hes talking about is good discussions with each side hearing each other out. The kind of "discourse" that goes on here is only more divisive, and definitely isnt solving any bad discourse.

Notwithstanding the trolls as OP mentions, which is a legitimate concern, these forums are also littered with actual spam/scammers that somehow make it past the moderators. There are multiple spam posts on the trading forum at this very moment that I reported this morning, but alas they are still up. I see multiple posts every day promoting everything from the latest crypto coin that nobody has heard of to escorts and drugs. Wish that would at least be clean up.

That's very strange… I almost never see these sorts of posts. As I understand it, once a post has received multiple flags, it gets hidden from users until a moderator checks it out. In the case of people who receive a ton of flags/MS, I believe all of their posts get hidden until moderator review. Could be wrong though as I'm not 100% sure how the system works.

JG_wentworth is right, I see them a lot too. Sometimes they get quite a few replies from people on here and nobody realizes it's a bot/spam.

Composition of the userbase of this website has fundamentally changed. Handful of trolls routinely post extremist incel bullshit here and a large percentage of actual posters here now unironically agree with it. Not much to be done.
