Well, okay. But I mostly was concerned about what one of the site's administartors said:

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.


It's not very clear what "trying to make nazis or a nazi avatar/supporter look cute/funny" means exactly.

Does it include Aryanne simply looking cute in a picture that would result in banning?

If yes, then for some reason that OC herself is being compared to a real nazi or nazi supporter…

It's times like this you actually gotta look up to the furry fandom. They got the same 'nazi problem' accusations too! Nobody cares, e621 still allows nazi stuff, haven't heard a peep about it since.

I've considered this elsewhere but with enough mental gymnastics I could see any combination of "MLP + nazi" count as sufficiently trivializing Nazis. You know, since one is using a literal children's TV show to bash Nazis. Which I'm not opposed to, in fact I'm glad to upvote it when it's not complete cringe, but it sounds pretty infantile and trivializing to me.

At least the "trivializing" wording is removed now, though, so it's a less relevant point.

Surprising, I thought that would have been gone a long time ago.

Deleting (or even hiding) an image is a fairly simple task, from what moderators have told me. Unless I suck at counting (very real possibility, I'm tired) less than 20 images of her that could count as "trivializing" have not been removed.

My goodness, a series of spam comments were removed from one of my drawings just a few minutes ago, so it's not like they're completely hamstrung or anything.

Aryanne uploads chugging along unmolested really supports that "Mods are now Hitler, who was bad" argument

What do you think the game plan is? I think that this whole thing is looking like the result of freedom from accountability for too long plus the mods being separated into their own bubble, so their is a chance that they won't make moves that make much sense.

@WyrmSpawN
What's your reasons?

Honestly? It looks like a split in the staff team. The "old guard" of admins, who have caved under the continuous pressure and became subverted by an authoritarian ideology, vs. "the actual mods", which do not buy into said ideology yet.

@WyrmSpawN
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?

@Boxless
Also this. Downvote-spamming certain fetishes is "fine" and ends up with real moderation, but the moment it happens to undisguised propaganda that some of the staff support it's haram and must be prevented at all costs?

Though I think it is hard to discern from the outside what exactly is going on. I do think that a lot of the mods seem confused so it is something probably being done from the top down, but haven't only a couple spoken out against this though?
