MetaAlways a shame when anti-censorship groups take ideological stances for censorship. (a.trp.red)

Something doesn't sit right with me. KIA, the bastion of misogyny and alt-right rhetoric has some back-room deal with the admin to prevent quarantine.

VERY FISHY

[–]1SirKolbath 39 points40 points  (9 children)

When they quarantined /TheRedPill, I said nothing because I didn't post there.

When they quarantined /KIA, I said nothing because I didn't post there.

When they quarantined /TheDonald, I said nothing because I didn't post there.

Then they quarantined /Fortnight and there was nothing I could say.

Mate.

I remember FatPeopleHate and CoonTown.

Now CringeAnarchy, MillionDollarExtreme, WatchPeopleDie... and TRP?

Could it be that the only person who brought bad luck to these subreddits.... was me??...

[–]1SirKolbath 16 points17 points  (2 children)

So it's your fault! Stone the heathen!

[–]Endorsed Contributorex_addict_bro 6 points7 points  (1 child)

You can take a man out of Middle East they say

[–]DevkiKinteSiski 1 point2 points  (0 children)

But you can't remove the stone lodged in him they say.

[–]SelfTaughtPiano 1 point2 points  (3 children)

They are after you.

We need to sacrifice ex-addict-bro to appease the admin gods.

[–]Endorsed Contributorex_addict_bro 2 points3 points  (2 children)

How about I give you the finger and you give me my phone call

[–]DevkiKinteSiski 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Mr AddictBro, what use is a textpost if you are unable to post?

now wait as your fingers and hands meld into paddles

Quarantine ensues

Some big black guy calls me and tells me to login into trp.red

[–]Endorsed Contributorsqerl 10 points11 points  (2 children)

The reason TRP was censored is not for the reasons you were given.

They won't tell the truth. They'll go down fighting while protecting every shred of evidence that says otherwise.

[–]1SirKolbath 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Kind of reminds me of the Kavanaugh witch hunt.

[–]Endorsed Contributorsqerl 8 points9 points  (0 children)

It's a pattern. Kavanaugh and "Russian Collusion" follow the same pattern. The public is being gaslighted.

Is it naïve of me to wonder if the quarantine status is actually sustainable and won’t inevitably result in total shut down?

At the very least the quality of posts seems to have been improved significantly, and the mod team more on top of their game since it happened.

[–]michael_wilkins 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Eh, they probably just didn't want to get banned as well.

[–]CeleritySteam 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's not shocking at all. KIA is controlled ops and always has been, of course it will not go away. Even if your post did concern video games and censorship within them a good number of the SJWs engaging in such are a protected class and the only thing they actually do is virtue signal about the few SJWs who aren't in said protected class without actually taking any action against them.

In exchange for being massive moderate cucks, they will be shot last.

[–]Senior ContributorNightwingTRP 2 points3 points  (7 children)

Rule 9 is "no reposts." What's going on here? Did he mean rule 10?

Did you include the 4 points that make our situation relevant to KIA?

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Yes I Did. first comment is mine:

Censorship +2 Official SocJus +1 Related Politics +1

[–]Senior ContributorNightwingTRP 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I think that's supposed to be included in the piece itself rather than in a separate comment. I dunno. Any more general discussion from the mods over there? They seem to be "we're not at risk so fuck you." Do they not realise that this is precisely the salami tactics that reddit employs? They don't want to fight us all at once, so they'll pick one major sub at a time and we're 3 times the size of KIA. If we go down, they have no chance in the future if the same ever happens to them.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You include it as a comment if your piece is a link (which mine was).

I want to know what this assurance is they have that makes them think they're protected. This is very strange. Is the admin secretly giving protection to random subs?

[–]Senior ContributorNightwingTRP 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If you can get evidence of that then you have evidence of it being a kangaroo court process. A show trial because the decisions have already been made, and not for honest consistent reasons. Gamergate has constantly had the misogyny slur hurled at it so their reaction that they are safe from this is bizarre at best.

[–]Hessmix 0 points1 point  (2 children)

You're looking at the rules on nuReddit. Rule 9 is no Metareddit. Here's our COCk as proof

[–]Senior ContributorNightwingTRP 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Okay. I take you at your word. Care to share how KiA has come to be so chill about the new round of quarantines? It can't just be that you're obeying the rules, we're doing that and you guys get accused of bullshit misogyny too. I was impressed when you guys got everything sorted after that problem with the original founder nuking the place. Now we're being illegitimately nuked by reddit admins and you don't have a peep to say.

[–]Dawnguards 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Dont forget one world goverment. It will be like this. remember what they want.

[–]Iceklimber 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Without seeing the removed post in question, there is no way for us to determine whether its removal was appropriate.

Off-topic deletion =/= censorship

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 5 points6 points  (2 children)

it was our appeal.

[–]1SirKolbath 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Precisely as the Reddit administration had no grounds to quarantine /TheRedPill, the mods at /KIA had zero justification to remove that post. Their own cited rule explicitly states that posts regarding major Reddit happenings are allowable.

The censorship of a subreddit with over a quarter million members is, in fact, a major Reddit happening. The choice they make to bury their heads in the sand and pretend it can never happen to them does not alter this fact; it just makes them look kinda stupid.

They removed the post because they think that appeasement will keep Reddit admin off their backs. Does anyone remember how that worked for Chamberlain in 1936?

We have another place to go. Do they?

[–]Senior Endorsed Contributormax_peenor 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm a bit mystified as to what they don't think they have a dog in this fight. If you can't see the slippery slope cliff here, you have to be blind.

[–]Fulp_Piction 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If they're getting a deal of some sort I'm sure it comes with a gag clause.
