>Q: Why would you do this???
>A: I felt
Hey, did you guys have a vol vote on this? I might have missed it in the /mod/ thread.
>this would make it easier for people
This is pure >>>/reddit/
speak. Imageboard lingo and culture is not "easy" for noobs. They need to lurk and ultimately acclimate.
...which we were able to have under anon-posting before, so...
>without having to worry about mistaking each other
Literally nobody "worried" about mistaking each other. Anonymity is a feature, not a drawback. We, 411 leftypol posters, are not 411 Joe Bidens.
>mistaking each other or saying "I'm the same anon as this post" constantly
This happens like every...? 60 posts?! You have no excuse, quite frankly. As far as I'm concerned, you are doing a Trump_Live_On_Corona_Virus.youtube atm.
You, as vols, are entrusted
to take care of shills, of same-fags, of tripfags. That is all.
>and it could possibly help with that
But who asked you to "help with that"? Literally noone. You, as vols, already have access to poster history, so what the actual fuck?
>I personally did not approve this vote
(Reconsidering what I've said above,) maybe make available a separate "vols voting thread", because I (and many other anons) completely missed your retarded policy being passed.
A reminder: https://www.strawpoll.me/19593222/r
>it was some drastic decision to tackle that issue
First, it was certainly drastic,
yet there was no "issue" from the POV of the userbase.
<Q: Why did you not consult us about such a major decision?
>A: It is worth noting that this vote was announced in the moderation topic
Read: it was announced in a thread that is visited by literally 1% of the userbase, if and only when they are banned. I remember some of you, current vols, crying out about OldBO being "authoritarian" and whatnot, yet you passed this measure BEHIND
99% of posters' back!
>I did not consider it personally to be a major decision
Because you are completely
retarded, honestly. Anonymity is a leftist value, no question about that. Anonymity, as such, equalizes the redneck and the radlib, and allows them to meet each other as equals. What you just did, dear vol, is moving our community towards /pol/.
>I did not appreciate that they might significantly change the face of discussion
Did you mean to say "apprehend"? Because that is more worthy of this fucking context!
>I also did not realise that it would be such a controversial change
pic fucking related, you utter scum. Some of the vols are COMPLETELY OUT OF SYNC NOT JUST WITH THE FUCKING HISTORY WE HAVE AS /LEFTYPOL/, NOT JUST WITH IMAGEBOARDS IN GENERAL, BUT WITH FUCKING SOCIALISM AS SUCH!!!!
>I'm leaving the board because of this!
<please don't say anything rash like that
FUCK YOU! "PLEASE" DON'T MAKE RETARDED DECISIONS LIKE THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
>I personally apologise
>I personally apologise if this change upset you and ruined your day
You literally sound like a fucking bourgeois politician, you realize that?!
>Q: Do you represent the rest of the mods?
<A: No, I only represent myself
LOL, you are literally being the strawman that was thrown at OLDBO!!!!
>I can tell you that almost all of us do feel bad that this has caused so much consternation
You just literally killed our board, you FUCKING IDIOTS.
