EtcetEraThread 2020 Democratic Presidential Primary | OT2 | New thread, same old candidates
Red Text Saying a candidate is a plant is a huge accusation, that said person entered the race to only attack or sabotage someone, in this case Bernie Sanders. Making such accusations without proof is nothing more than peddling in conspiracy theories and that has and will always be a bannable offense. We understand that posters will employ heated rhetoric from time to time, but we have to draw the line at conspiracy theories.

EtcetEraThread 2020 Democratic Presidential Primary | OT2 | New thread, same old candidates
Red Text This thread is not supposed to be a battleground between factions of the community. If you want to have an extended conversation about something that relates to the 2020 Democratic Primary, that's fine. But the continued swatting back and forth needs to end now. Get back on topic

EtcetEraThread Trump tweets spliced together video of Ilhan Omar and 9/11
Red Text The previous Staff Post was not meant to prevent people from criticizing anyone's response to past incidents. Its purpose was to make clear that using past criticisms of Congresswoman Omar to rationalize why she is been attacked here will be met with moderation, as this is quite transparently motivated by bigotry. The broader political context can still be discussed. Our Staff Post was never meant to prevent discussion on that, and has now been edited to be clearer.

EtcetEraThread Trump tweets spliced together video of Ilhan Omar and 9/11
Red Text While we don't shield public figures or politicians from criticism, this particular campaign is transparently motivated by bigotry. Please treat this incident as a separate and distinct incident and do not use this thread to relitigate other comments she has made.

EtcetEraThread 2020 Democratic Presidential Primary | OT2 | New thread, same old candidates
Red Text OK, listen up. The whole point of this thread is so that the site doesn't get clogged up with a million and a half threads about the 2020 Democratic Primaries. As such, the discussion is being limited to this thread until the first debate. After the first debate this thread will be locked and you can make all the 2020 Dem Primary threads you want, but until that point any threads on the primary will be locked.

EtcetEraThread U.S Rep. Rashida Tlaib shares 'hateful,' 'bullying' note left on office door addressed to Rep. Ilhan Omar (read mod post)
Red Text Let's be clear here: This is an important topic and the members banned in the thread were using it to goad and snipe at other members and communities, carrying over petty grudges from other threads. This has been getting worse over time and is becoming more like political console wars than actual discussion.

GamingThread THQ Nordic holding an AMA on... 8chan (Head of PR & Marketing + Senior Management involved. CEO refuses to comment.)
Red Text Looking at the discussion, it appears that while AOPM *may* initially be coming into the thread to start something, it's not always the case, like the other instances have been prior in this thread. Unless something is particularly egregious, we'll take a moment to assess the situation and decide whether or not to take action. However sometimes people are asking questions without JAQing. AOPM had several posts responding to other users that seemed to be fine. It was only Weltall that was going for the throat.

EtcetEraThread CNN: New evidence suggests Jussie Smollett orchestrated attack (Check Threadmarks)
Red Text For the record, in the original thread we did ask people not to speculate without evidence that the attack was staged; this was necessary because members were becoming hostile to each other and the discussion was getting out of hand. We explicitly mentioned the possibility that new information could emerge to change this, and that has now happened.

EtcetEraThread Jussie Smollett Breaks His Silence After Vicious Attack: 'I'm OK'
Red Text Everyone calm down, any further hostility will be met with appropriate action. As of right now, there remains no reason to doubt that Smollett was attacked and according to the police he is not under investigation in any way. Like Royalan said earlier, as new facts become known, feel free to discuss them. Unless legitimate information comes out to the contrary, any talk of him faking the attack will be treated as victim blaming and actioned as such.

EtcetEraThread how often do you think about killing yourself?
Red Text While this is something that many people do deal with, a thread framed as such is not appropriate and could potentially set people on a path we'd prefer them not to take. If anyone feels they need help they can reach out or enter the mental health thread here: . There are a lot of helpful people to talk to and they're all a huge help to a lot of posters. As such, we'll be locking the thread and people should head over there if they feel they need to.

EtcetEra HangoutsThread US PoliERA 2018 |OT10| McConnell is "mule piss"
Red Text Guys, just a head's up. If you post fake news you're going to get banned. If we think you did it deliberately to troll or some other reason, it's going to be a perm. So just check your sources, we all know what's real and what's not. If I'm honest, I don't foresee this being an issue going forward, but I'd be remiss if I didn't give you all a head's up. People come in here and have an expectation that what they read is real and can be trusted. If I have to ban people to keep it that way, so be it.

Red Text Guys, I get it. We're all worried about him, he's been a big part of this community for a long time, but that doesn't mean we should be trying to find where he lives or whatever you guys are doing. If there's new news on him we can either unlock this thread or make a new one, but I don't want anyone trying to doxx him. Even if you have good intentions, that's somewhere we aren't going. Because that's something that can't be undone.

Red Text Guys, if you want to post a tweet thread then post the first tweet and indicate it's part of a thread, or just post the article it's summarizing. Posting almost entire tweet threads takes up a lot of screen space and can be disruptive. If you want to post a tweet of any kind you can, but we'd appreciate a little bit of your own commentary to go along with it.

If you all decide to have book discussion be spoiler tagged in this thread please mark it with "book discussion" or "speculation based on book" or something to indicate that it features spoilers from the books. I'm adding this to the OP so this is the rule going forward. Any book talk should be under clearly marked spoiler tags.

Red Text Quick reminder: While it is possible for people to grow and change and ask forgiveness, that does not mean that everyone is required to forgive.

EtcetEra HangoutsThread Anime |OT| Spring 2018 - We've dived in too deep!
Red Text Guys, just remember: no lewd/creepy talk and you're fine. You can talk about pretty much any series you like, just don't get caught defending the sexualization of minors. It's really not that hard. You all are generally pretty good about that in here, I haven't really noticed this as an issue. Hell, I haven't had to issue a single warning or ban an AnimeOT. It's more the Etc threads where this has become an issue for whatever reason. Talk about whatever show you want to, just keep that creepy shit out of it and don't go defending it when it comes up. If anything gets banned outright I'll be making an announcement in here to let you all know.Exactly.
