For users:

Dogpiling and harassment are off-limits no matter how justified you think you are. The rules are for everyone.

Strongly considering adding screenshot-dunking to the code of conduct as well. We don't need that culture here.

@Gargron a large number of users responding critically to a poorly thought out staff decision is dogpiling, huh?

@maolfunction No, what's happened with Wil Wheaton is dogpiling.

@Gargron it's more like people are seeing a dangerous precedent being set by the way staff on .cloud and .social handled the whole situation that will benefit abusers, but we'll agree to disagree it appears.

@maolfunction .cloud's decision to suspend wil has indeed benefitted abusers in this case.

@Gargron @maolfunction disagreements are not abuse? trans people have very little power to enact online abuse on cisgender men? this space should prioritise the well-being of transgender folks over cis dudes period??? what the fUCK??????

@Gargron on a serious note as someone who is fairly new here, this shit is embarrassing to watch. the same structures that are used to silence trans people for literally naming their oppression are being replicated while mods coddle those who enact said oppression, by leaping to their beck and call when someone bruises their ego.

@Gargron oh + LMK since when asking someone to denounce an abuser - who just so happens to be their “best friend” - is abuse, cos frankly as a survivor myself I find that comparison crass to say the least. you fucked up dude.

@bb_almond "this account mocks fascists" oh what a soft lil lad
