It was pointless to start a discussion thread about "mod policies" because naturally the fanatic complainers took over.
Policy #1 should always be the promotion of free speech, and if anything should be suppressed, it's the demands of the control freaks who spazz out every time anyone says anything bad. Like bad words are gonna burn down the world. Grow up, control freaks!
The sickness crippling the internet is the millions of people who crawl around it deliberately looking for things to be offended by. If not for these habitual troll-feeders, trolling wouldn't even be a thing. Most trolls don't even believe the things they say and are merely playing along with the desperate masochism of their enablers.
I agree with this general sentiment on erring on the side of free discussion. You likely will find some posts on here that are offensive. You may even find posts on here you consider racist. The black dildo posts is for example one of them. We don't want posts like that on our site. I will leave it at least for now as it is being discussed. I'm not trying to justify it as we would want it removed.
However, in general if there is something you disagree with I encourage you to state why in a civil manner. If it crosses a line report it and it will be reviewed. A think a lot of the worst posts are in thread where a few people are posting back and forth that fortunately not many others are reading but that doesn't mean we want that content on letsrun or that we haven't come up short in moderating.
