Ryan was super funny, def miss him
Yeah for the most part from what I’ve seen the comments being flagged are stuff calling out problematic stuff like I saw Rude talking on twitter about how she was flagged for nicely talking about homophobia and I was flagged when I was talking about r*pe culture on the noob loop post
So mods can flag too and at first I thought it was a troll doing all the flagging on posts that were calling out problematic stuff but it just spans way too many topics now and is happening to a lot of people so I feel like it must be the mods doing it. But even it they aren’t, they’re still the ones defending and agreeing with whoever is doing it.
Also I hate how no matter what happens the bot that messages you when you’re flagged says that multiple people did it. Like You’re telling me the comment I made on a post with only about 30 views so far got flagged by multiple people within the minute or so it was up? Doubtful. Plus it says multiple people every time.
Like that’s literally not likely at all and I seriously doubt it. But the fact that it’s there in the automated message really annoys me because it’s like straight up a dominance tactic to make the person getting the message to feel like there is a big group of people against them. It’s supposed to make you feel outnumbered. And it really weirds me out that they would use a tactic like that on a child friendly forum? Or like even at all? Like that’s super not professional and maybe I’m being nit picky but it bothers me. Also “flagged by the community” as if one person speaks for the whole community and the whole community is against you now… like? It just really bothers me because like I don’ personally have social anxiety but a lot of people do and as someone who studies mental health I just can’t look at it and think the manipulation is not intentional and I’d hate for like someone who gets flagged for next to reason feel bad for some ridiculous and poorly formatted automated message idk I may be thinking about this too much but it bothers me whenever I see it idk if anyone else here feels that way
But anyway, didn’t get those messages before when Ryan was here. Miss him.
