"Quarantine.
Dear Mods,

We want to let you know that your community has been quarantined, as outlined in Reddit’s Content Policy.

The reason for the quarantine is that over the last few months we have observed repeated rule-breaking behavior in your community and an over-reliance on Reddit admins to manage users and remove posts that violate our content policy, including content that encourages or incites violence. Most recently, we have observed this behavior in the form of encouragement of violence towards police officers and public officials in Oregon. This is not only in violation of our site-wide policies, but also your own community rules (rule #9). You can find violating content that we removed in your mod logs.

As we have discussed in the past, and as detailed in our content policy and moderator guidelines, we expect you to enforce against rule-breaking content. You’ve made progress over the last year, but we continue to observe and take action on a disproportionate amount of rule-breaking behavior in this community. We recognize that you do remove posts that are reported, but we are troubled that violent content more often goes unreported, and worse, is upvoted.

User reports and downvotes are an essential way that Reddit functions to moderate content. Limiting or prohibiting them prevents you from moderating your community effectively. Because of this, we are disabling your custom styling in order to restore these essential functions.

As stated in our Moderator Guidelines, our goal is to keep the platform alive and vibrant, as well as to ensure your community can reach people interested in it. Accordingly, here are the specific terms of the quarantine and the next steps we are asking from you as a mod team to resolve this situation.

Quarantine terms:

Visitors to this community will see a warning that requires users to explicitly opt-in to viewing it. This messaging reminds users of the importance of reporting rule-breaking content.

Custom styling has been disabled to restore the report and downvote buttons.

We hope both these changes will help improve the signal around rule-breaking content and improve your ability to effectively address it.

Next steps:

You unambiguously communicate to your subscribers that violent content is unacceptable.

You communicate to your users that reporting is a core function of Reddit and is essential to maintaining the health and viability of the community.

Following that, we will continue to monitor your community, specifically looking at report rate and for patterns of rule-violating content.

Undertake any other actions you determine to reduce the amount of rule-violating content.

Following these changes, we will consider an appeal to lift the quarantine, in line with the process outlined here.

We hope that this process provides a viable way forward to restore the health of the community. However, if this situation continues to escalate, we will explore further actions, including the possible banning of your community.

Please confirm that you have received and understand this message.

This is the message sent to us, so per their request, I'm sharing with you.

https://magaimg.net/img/8ax3.png

This is a list of what Reddit has removed in the last 30 days. If you count, not including the admins stripping me of most of my permissions, it amounts to fewer than one/day.

It would seem they've set up an impossible standard as a reason to kill us before the 2020 election.

More soon.

"One of the most active pro-conservative and pro-Trump forum boards on one of the most visited sites in the world has just been censored.

“the_donald” on Reddit.com where our president himself did an AMA is under attack.

Recently it has been loudly pushing about the story proving google is interfering in election meddling. Now on the eve of the democratic debates, it has been “quarantined.”

On reddit individual forums are run by mods, and admins watch all of them. It has Chinese ownership and proven Iranian I.P's as mods. It is far left in ownership and moderation. Slowly the conservative reddits have been getting shut down for no reason.

They claim the_donald has been inciting violence toward cops when our sub reddit is one of the most supportive of the law enforcement community. We have already been shoved out of view but a quarantine is the first step toward a ban.

The Admins claim that they have been removing violent comments at an unacceptable rate; this is completely false. Reddit hosts several left forums, namely chapotraphouse, which regularly and openly call for violence against conservatives. These subs are left untouched by the admins.

In addition, the administration has removed the mods of the_donalds ability to do exactly what they are claiming they are being forced to do.

Furthermore it is very likely the calls to violence have been edited by reddit admins themselves or placed there purposely by alternative accounts expressly for this reasons.

In the name of our sacred Constitution I ask for anything that can be done to help us. We the people support our president, and we the people are being punished for it in digital spaces so large that tech companies have usurped the sovereignty of our government and began deciding what can and can't be said.

This cannot stand. Something must be done now more than ever to make sure everyone has a voice. What we are witnessing is nothing short of appalling behavior because these companies are in fact above the law. Please take any and all legal action you can, as well as letting us know how we may help.

Thank you.""

"From a comment I made in askt_d. It's even more relevant right fucking now:

Trump and his FTC need to get on this now. Justice is slow and the clock is literally ticking. The kind of manipulation that is happening, if allowed to happen through 2020, will absolutely sink MAGA.

You take a shot at the king, you better not miss. Turning a blind eye to this is a miss. The pendulum back under Democrat control will be extremely volatile. We're dancing around "lock them up" and pulling our puds but they'll actually do it with zero hesitation.

RINOs: I know you're just hanging out happy that Trump will fail and hoping that you can someday take the reigns of such influential technology, but you are equally fucked with a 2020 loss. No one is going to show any R after their name mercy, nothing you do to help this kind of corruption will be rewarded. No one is going to give less of a smirk before they kick you into the Rancor pit."

"Nobody said a word back when Reddit banned Coontown despite following all the rules and quarantining a whole host of other subs because you didn’t agree with the content. Censorship anywhere is an affront to everything good and decent and you failed to stand up for free speech. Who is left to defend you? The far right who basically have to hop from sub to sub as they get banned?

I won’t be surprised if T_D is banned before the election."

You know you’re winning when you uphold r/Coontown as an example of moderation gone too far.

Wasn’t there a dude on here that used to cite The_Donald?

TD got quarantined hours before the debates started. It had nothing to do with the Oregon situation; they didn't want TD influencing another election.

Man, back in the day you had to find an anarchist's bookstore or your local skinhead clubhouse in order to get pamphlets or zines this sweet.

How far we've come!

I don’t know if this is good for free speech or not but I saw someone mention Alex Jones on twitter today and thought, “wow that’s a name I haven’t seen in a long time.”

It seems like they've been referring to the constitutional process of forcing the legislators to actually form a quorum as "tyranny"; still, I think this could be whipped up into a catchy pro-militia slogan:

Deplatforming won't matter: it's just a PR move; even Cloudflare, in their post about terminating service for 8chan (https://blog.cloudflare.com/terminating-service-for-8chan/) reflects on their earlier deplatforming of the Daily Stormer.
The point is: communities like this always regroup. 8chan has a .tor node and several imageboards / bunkers to run back to.

For sure, but a wanna-be shithead can't just google some dumb shit and then end up there and consume all that shitty content. The barrier to entry is much higher.

You have a point for their current userbase to a degree, but not for potential new shitheads.

Welcome to soap box. Take some time and some deep breaths and try again.
