The problem is you are impossible to talk to because you hold onto your principles so hard that they overtake any attempt at proper discourse. There is never a moment that i talk to you where I think you'll maybe give what im saying a shot. Also you say a ton of bigoted bullshit, but honestly that's not even the main point, you're just awful at arguing and an impossible person to talk to because you're so thick headed.

The only area I ever have that really happen is with the whole 'IT IS OKAY TO OPPRESS PEOPLE I DISAGREE WITH' shit. Though I might add, even there, it's actually more about the consistency of the thing. I ended up on fairly neutral terms with Scyph, a bit ago, with his more general "it shouldn't be an issue for anyone to get punched unseriously" lot, because he was consistent with it. He said it would be okay if someone he politically agreed with got hit, too.
At that point, it isn't the principles I have an issue with, so much, since the principles are even and universal. They apply to everyone. So then we had a nice simple conversation about the practicality of it, and whether or not it'd lead to anything worse, as it were.
What I'm getting at here is, you're confusing ''having'' principles, with ''not'' having principles. Yeah, I get uppity at people who do not have principles, who do not apply a standard to everyone, but would rather run around with special treatment based on arbitrary nonsense. That's because they aren't consistent. You can't really have a position without consistency. It'd be like saying 2 + 2 = 4, but also 2 - 2 = 50. Doesn't work. It isn't consistent.

What have I ever said that was bigoted?

Because you guys say a lot of shit.
But it isn't true.
I know it's not true.
But you keep saying it anyway.
And every time I try to explain to you why you're full of it, when you claim I'm doing something I'm not, you just run straight to insults and act like I just don't get it.
I'm left with only one possible interpretation, here: You just don't want anyone around who'd disagree with you. That seems to be what the evidence here suggests.

So that's nothing then? Good to know you're talking out of your ass.

As far as bigoted stuff, mainly all I can thin of stuff like sometimes using racially charged 4chan slang like basketball-americans or say, "If someone is from an urban black culture, it's not racist to discriminate against them." We had that argument earlier and I'm not wanting to get into it, but at a glance if you look at it as hot takes, it's looks like a thin justification to act racist while claiming not to be racist.

That and likely since you often post anon and there are a few alt-rght anons, gets it hairier and confusing. As far as other bigotry, people think you literally want to either nuke city dwellers or make their vote count for 100th of your vote.

As far as argumentation style goes, it's not so much that you don't compromise but that you tend to hold people to your own meta-ethics. Not necessarily thinking they have the same values as you but thinking they should construct their ethics in the same way. What I'm saying is that sometime's you're autistic with the principle thing to where it's like "You can't support both seat belt laws and liberty! You want all mankind to be slaves in comfort to the tyranny of seat belts and speed limits! You lie when you say you believe in freedom if you also support stripping people of their rights to go 100 through a residential!" I know the example I gave is pure hyperbole and ridiculous, just to show that sometimes you go full absolutist with values and then character attack people for not also being absolutists on values.

So it ends up at an impasse if it's not so much what the values are but how the values are used in the ethic system.

NoonimCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 13087

>>13086
I don't think I have ever said either of those things. Certainly not basketball Americans, though I may've said some negative things on urban black culture, which I don't tie to race since outside of those areas you find blacks are very different.
I'm not convinced "hot takes" ought to be considered "bigotry". Especially since the only lot I'll take a direct stance against in such a way is Islam, but that's an ideology, not a race. It's not something you are necessarily born in to. Even there, I'm of the opinion they just need a reformation, as Christianity had.

I do not post as anon any more. Though, given the above lot, I wouldn't be surprised if some things other anons had said got credited to me.
I do not want to nuke city dwellers, or take their vote. I do want as local votes and governments as possible, and I really hate cityfags, but my principles would never allow me to hurt them. I won't deny I have a bias against them, though. That's a personal failing no doubt, though I do feel I have my reasons for it.

I can see what you mean here. It's more due to how principles work, but I'd guess if someone didn't really understand the lot, they could see it this way. Your example is really good for this, actually, if we replace liberty with self ownership. Not having a seatbelt on hurts only you, and so is your responsibly. If a person owns themselves, they are the party responsible for the own care. Thus, supporting seatbelt laws and the principle of self ownership would conflict.

NoonimCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 13088

>>13086
The last thing's probably the biggest issue, ultimately. My stance is that you either apply your principles universally, and stand by them no matter what, or you don't really have them.
Ultimately principles, even ones of a "greater good" shouldn't need to conflict themselves. As, a greater good should mean that you are always working towards that goal, choosing what benefits the most, for instance.

Problem is, I don't think most folk truly look at their principles. It's fine to have principles that supercede one another, but it seems like most people are willing to just toss them aside for convenience and emotion.
This is where I have huge issue. Because if you don't stand by your principles, you didn't really have them. Maybe you thought you did, but if that were true, you wouldn't have the issue. They're not true principle, at that point.

algolCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 13089

>>13087
Ah I could have sworn you used some 4chan slang like that at some point. I'm just trying to think of what the issue is and explain it to the best of my ability. I guess maybe you get all mad and personal attack folks sometimes as enemies of liberty who want to enslave everyone who lack any sort of principles but it's a bit hypocritical when half the posters on /ef/ don't even need to get worked up to that level, they just burst into a thread, their first post in, going full capslock mode with 20 angry posts in the span of 3 minutes.
>>13088
Hard kantian ethics can get into weird places like that. Things like the seat belt example, hard kantian would say that either you don't want seat belt laws or you're equivalent to hitler on the authoritarian scale if you think seat belt laws should exist. It provides no room for the idea of values applied "in moderation" or "at reasonable limits". Like most people who support seat belt laws in america want a modicum of liberty and whatnot.
Or a classic example would be "liberty, fraternity and equality" You can have one in an extreme amount, two in a large amount of all three but in incredibly mediocre amounts. Most folks want two of those rather than just one.

NoonimCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 13090

>>13089
I'll definitely admit I get worked up early quickly. But, yeah, seems like a lot of folk on /ef/ do. It is something I'm trying to work on, at least. Big thing is I really need to stop applying other similar arguments of opposition on someone, like with the lot between Scypth a but ago. I assumed he'd only be okay with it against certain people, and that sent me in to a bit of a tirade.

Not necessity. Or at least, that's not my issue. My issue is that you can do that, proved you have a principle at a higher level. Lets say, life itself.
Then you can have principles of a standard, without issue. The problem is more that if you do not set the principle as a flat standard. It's why principles have to be set, because they're your basis for your ideal scenario. They're what you use to determine what is "good".

algolCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 13091

>>13090
Yeah, with the "You get mad and insulting." it feels hypocritical to single that out when you look at everyone else on /ef/ as well.
The whole "It's 3 hours past when you should have gone to bed. You have work tomorrow. You're currently writing a thesis where your thesis is how shit a person this other guy is. The thread is 200 posts long now." Literally anyone who talks politics a lot on the internet has ended up there at some point.

As far as politics go, I think it's more important to look at what someone vision of a utopian society is since that's what generally guides their values. Any viable political ideology historically requires some sort of vision of a better world.

I don't really see how you could pull /pol/ on it myself. The most 'bait' stuff was basically Anonthony and others running in to start screaming at anyone who dared think that having a tight border is a good thing.

Trump's supposed "shithole" comment just made this type of thing something people payed attention to. Something in current news. Of course people're going to want to talk about it. The thing that seemed to stop discussion was just the massive amount of vitriolic hatred a fair number of posters had for anyone daring to bring it up.

Basically, I'm saying you're taking something as bait that I do not believe should be taken as bait.
If that's bait, then half the posts on /ef/ are bait.
The OP was frankly written quite tame. The only "offensive" line possibly taken was the "shitholes" bit, which as mentioned has become a point due to Trump's alleged comments.
Otherwise, the thread's damn well straight forward. It doesn't call out any specific group of people, it isn't particularly sided, it's just a simple, flat statement, that until the thread I had thought nobody could have an issue with.

Look, flatly put, if this is what constitutes bait, you're better off just flatly banning politics.
I wouldn't even complain, because at least that's specific, and not just some loose personal-opinion type shit that can vary from person to person, and is basically just a way for people to remove whatever they feel like, rather than to remove a specific problem.

On a partially related note: If this is the standard /ef/'s going to be held to, there's no point for /oat/ to exist.
Or alternatively, /ef/, but that's more debatable thanks to the SFW jazz.

Sure, but I do wish you'd at least go the route of clear set rules, rather than personal feeling junk that's going to doubtlessly cause all sorts of problems.
This isn't the first time these types of things have happened, you know. It never ends well.

I know you're trying to do the right thing, here, but that doesn't mean you're doing the right thing.
You don't have any kind of set standard for what "bait" is, and the only thread we've got so far to go by was definitely not bait by any standard I've ever seen.

This type of shit right here is WHY it's so important to have clear cut rules. To actually establish what is and is not allowed. If I were the OP of that thread, my thoughts wouldn't be "Yeah, I deserved that ban, I was clearly baiting". My thoughts would be "Oh, the mods here are clearly biased against right wing positions".
And that's when you start bleeding posters real quick. Nobody likes to be unjustly attacked, especially by authority.

Anything could be classified as bait. Like we've seen with that thread. /ef/ is supposed to be where we talk about politics, isn't it? That thread was built with a very simple, tame political discussion OP.
I do not see how you could frame it as "bait". Not without being able to frame literally anything as bait, anyway.

A good example of a low quality troll would be someone with a post history with no sense of decency, or someone whose posts are so atrocious that they contradict their own logic they pass off as "political views". We would probably deem the latter bannable because that's the line crossed where the poster is abusing the system to gage a reaction and disrupt a perfectly functional thread. Your posts don't seem to fall in either category. A few other anons could easily be considered bannable by the new rule revision, and it appears that many users must have thought one of those anons was you.

No one wants to partake in a discussion where you have to constantly worry about which users are sincere, and which ones aren't. However I do believe that this ordeal was blown way out of proportion. Both staff and users alike have to recognize the shortcomings of political threads on a site that prioritizes a shitpost as much as a well-thought-out argument. The updated sticky in >>>/ef/24024 doesn't use the same language mentioned in >>13092 but it attempts to counteract that problem by rationing out accountability. I think the only discipline that can close the gap now is self-moderation. I can only assume that users who filtered you in that health care thread had their filters disabled, although there's nothing stopping you from using a filter on Anonthony or Trip either. You three seem totally incompatible with each other.

I'm hoping that this change keeps all the drama de-escalated because our next resort would have to be to board-scope all of /ef/'s IDs and have filters for those too. I don't want that to happen.

By the way, Mikie promoted me to a moderator position to reflect my involvement in staff decisions lately.

NoonimCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 13114

>>13113
I don't filter people. Why would I? The issue's only ever in political threads, and then it's only around words. My biggest complaint between the two would be that they engage me at times, then seem to stop in the middle of arguments because they can't actually back up their positions. And that's something filtering wouldn't solve.
Besides, Thony apparently hasn't much an issue going anon to rant anyway.

If it's only going to be used against users what continually flip their position, that's one thing, though I do believe you would be better served doing what Chrow does, and simply pointing them out. My problem here is more the deleted thread what's triggered this whole lot, and seems to be the primary example of a 'bait' thread to a lot of people.

I have no idea who you are.

That final comment wasn't actually meant to be directed to you specifically. I just know someone was going to question my tag being changed.

This was unfortunately a problem on /oat/ back before we replaced /anon/ and /gala/ with /chat/. The politics is fine; the "/pol/-tier" threads weren't. Unfortunately the latter was what showed up on /ef/. Drawing more lines to enforce the rules helped the situation, although I wish more people would just learn to ignore a post.

Really, we're going after trolls first and foremost.

>>13116
I remember seeing threads that popped up on /oat/ from time to time, however, usually it struck me as that the issue was more politics didn't belong on /oat/.
In the case of this one, the OP is far too tame to really be read as "bait" to me.

While I'm sure you intend to go after "trolls", my issue is that I do not think such an item is as clear cut as is assumed.

NoonimCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 13118

>>13117
I should add; This is the first thread of this type in ages, least from what I'm seeing. /ef/'s not exactly got any kind of problem with these supposed threads.
It would appear to only be one, of which'd be easily hidden and no longer a problem through people just simply clicking the [-] button.

Does anyone have any other examples of this as some kind of prevalent problem? I just double-checked through /ef/'s catelogue, and the only thing I saw that I could see anyone getting uppity about was the DPRK thread, which got only a handful of posts before it fell off the lot. And that's only really worthwhile, I feel like due to the "Regardless of it's abuses of human rights, it's horrific concentration camps and it's disregard for basic international laws;" lot.

Perhaps this was a problem a while back, but it does not appear to be a problem currently. Besides that, the problem prior seemed to just be a matter of moving the threads to their applicable board.

Do you have any examples that were on /ef/?
I have not seen any, nor can I find any in the catalog.
The only example thus far people're pointing to is the immigration lot, which as mentioned, I don't see as particular /pol/ tier bait.
Derailments ought to be dealt with by removal of the derailment, not the destruction of the thread. Otherwise, the derailment didn't actually damage anything. The thread is to be executed either way.

>Otherwise, I'm fairly sure there was always a "place to take them".
Not on merged Ponychan before /chat/ existed. We had to jam them in a serial because it was too easy for people to make inflammatory threads with an OP implying that they were inviting conversation. Both TOPF and Pipes were notorious for that.
Surprisingly MLPchan didn't have a problem with /pol/ tier threads.

Yeah that's how they get away with it. They aren't stupid. They know not to make an OP so obviously bait so that they can attract users first.

I don't know about that. MLPchan's /oat/ was rather full of political threads, and there were at least two posters that were full on nutters.

>>13130

Then at least have the courtesy to provide examples of that poster's conduct that was, as implied by >>13113 , had contradicted his own position and was just after a rise.

Because otherwise, I'm left seeing an OP talking in very tame, plain terms about immigration, with the only noteworthy aspect being a term that has been massively popularized due to recent alleged claims of statements from Trump.

You may well post on /pol/ occasionally, but that does not make this bait. This would be laughably tame by /pol/ standards. This is literally nothing, mate. It's an incredibly basic thread. Fuck, it's not even a partisan issue. It's not even one that, at least prior to Trump, has drummed up much controversy.
It was the standard for ages now not to bring in immigrants of poor quality. Every president for ages has sought to bring in high-standard people, not bottom-bin types with no skills.

Mikie, it wasn't bait.
Or if it was bait, you're going to ban every remotely rightwing position.
Please, either get some damn definitions set up for this stuff, or just outright ban politics.
This kind of wishy-washy 'ban what i feel like' shit kills communities. Hell, I'll even say it's what caused the initial split into MLPchan.

If you could at least post some clear shit what shows this was the intent, I could understand.
But this statement, right here, more than anything else, proves my fucking point.

This right here is EXACTLY what I am talking about.
This is the attitude.
This is why it is a problem
This is why I am so vehemently opposed to this shit.

If that is genuinely your position, why didn't you ban me?

That was an example of a troll. I don't have one to share you on /ef/ but I know of some examples of such on /oat/ from Ponychan and /oat/ MLPchan.

Also: "Slide" threads are just /pol/ tier paranoia nonsense. Seriously, they're complaining about new threads being made to, supposedly kick off old ones.
And what the hell does that matter on a site as dead as ours, anyway?
I mean, we've got threads that've been here for ages.
>>13136
In other words, you do not have any case for the primary example being used as a current standard for "bait threads" which are now being banned on /ef/

Fucking amazing. 10/10 administrational work, here.

Okay I can see how you drove everyone nuts. I'm done with this conversation. You're being impossible to deal with.
