Basically this. Which is also why I’ve said that it’d take years
of not pulling this shit for my full
trust in the staff to be restored.
Note that I have explicitly said that rules need to be restored to pre-BLM
stance, specifically, removal of the unwritten rule that negative depictions of BLM/ACAB will be removed. It did not start with censoring the nazis, it started with censoring the detractors.
Honestly there’s about equal chance of this being done after Atlantic article being caused by it (i.e. it was not planned to enact censorship, the head-staff just saw the article and felt the need to virtue signal to not be targetted by the mob), and of it being planned ahead of time
and the article just forcing their hand/being a convenient opportunity.

Note that one of said admins has publicly equated BLM the organization and BLM the term, which is dishonest even before you take the ideology in question into account, while the other is responsible for picking a programming language that is scarcely used and not normally practiced by the rest of staff
for the site recode (Elixir), which btw STILL hadn’t restored many features of previous framework and my personal experience is that it’s not even any faster
