To be fair they're not banning "all pics of Aryanne". Images are still being uploaded and not removed, just one search of the OC tag would demonstrate this.
It's going to depend on the image, but if an image is trying to make nazis or a nazi avatar/supporter look cute/funny, then it's a nope. Yes, that is going to constitute the majority of the sort of images Aryanne is usually in by the nature of what she is and how she's generally been used and portrayed.
And the mods are really sick of downvote spams.Not a reason to compromise just moderation via automatic shadowbanning mechanism. Would something that gives a message "this user has downvoted X/Xmax (YY%), which is above the threshold, of the tracked tag Z in the last time period A, click here to go to their punishment-application-panel" and lets the actual mods decide what to actually do be really that much more difficult?
