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.


@bb_almond It's like the same shit repeated on every single social media platform over and over and over a-fucking-gain, I hate this, it's like clockwork =\

@umbracreatura I thought the whole point of having multiple instances + moderators was to make it more difficult to use reporting etc in this way, and yet they’re just..,.. letting him ?

@bb_almond ikr, it's horrid. I was really hoping to find some sort of utopia here; I'm not even in any marginalised groups and I'm already upset at how futile it all feels now
