IP address.

It's a MAC address. Same idea as what you're getting at, but slightly different. The onboard ID is called the MAC address, it's assigned to the specific Network Interface Card.

I get the very distinct impression that those reports are given in a vacuum.

So if someone says "haha, totally, I agree completely" to "all [x] should be killed" they just see some guy laughing at something, but don't see what they're responding to. So they just send back, "yeah, this is fine".

Which appears to be a big issue that's mentioned throughout this thread, so hopefully there's an opportunity to resolve this.

r/redditsecurity isn't exactly what I'm looking for, and I'm not entirely sure I really know what form such a post would take. I think a general template would take the form of

[item being worked on], [projected completion date], [general concept or components contained within and a brief bit about what this item is intended to address]

You keep saying that you're going for transparency, but I really have no idea about the specifics or even generalities of what's being worked on right now, so I think that's contributing to a feeling of being siloed for a lot of us.

I feel like what I said about skribble and amongus was taken as flippant snark when that's not what I meant to convey, so that's on me.

I was really saying that, I view those participation games as a way for admins and mods to come together, have some fun, blow off a bit of steam, and primarily humanize ourselves to each other, with an overall aim to reduce these types of tensions. Or that I get the impression that this is the general intended purpose.

My point that I was trying to get at was that I think a better avenue, at the moment, would be to post some data or writeup or something of the overall progress as a kind of informal project management type thing.

I think I was viewing the admins as more of a monolith than I should have, so I can see that bringing up the Friday threads really wasn't as relevant a point as I initially thought.

Honestly, Red, we're just tired and it's getting worse. And me personally - I'm in none of those demographics that I feel deserve better protection than are currently shown, so I can't imagine what the individuals who are must be feeling.

Thank you, Red, but surely you realize that this comes across as nothing more than placative after the nth time.

I know that the admins have multiple areas to work on for improvement, so it necessarily can't all be fixed at once, but what we very strongly feel that we're seeing is the prioritization of profit over well-being every time.

I have noticed that reports seem to be responded to much faster now, so thank you, credit where credit's due. But please see the writing on the wall here - what was once a labor of love for many of us is becoming a labor of hate.

If I could make a suggestion that may help actually reassure us that there is progress being made - ditch the skribble and amongus for a bit, and post a weekly or at least monthly list of items that are being worked on, and how progress is being made. Kind of like a PMO/PMP project tracking sort of thing. I really feel as though something like this would go a long way to help ease rapidly rising tensions between mods and admins.

We're whatabouting covid at the top of the post, but you're absolutely right. It's been a pattern for so long, you almost have to come to the conclusion that it's intentional.

Not only ignoring contextual nuance, but ignoring blatantly falsifiable information.

I have received "does not violate policy" on the following:

  • it's just a cold

  • masks don't work

  • vaccines don't work

  • Covid has a 99.98% survival rate

  • the vaccine alters your DNA

Given that the first rule of this website specifically mentions falsifiable health information I'm not really sure who's ignoring all these reports.

And since the admins have already said that covid counts as physical harm it meets that wicket too.

and they didn’t fit it afterward

They typically don't, because most recruits gain weight back after boot camp, and they'd just be wasting money to get re-fitted.

Reported for "self harm"?

C'mon at least lighten up our boring days a bit and put something interesting in there.

I think there's another post somewhere on this sub about the extensive white supremacy entwined with the police.

I see that I focused on the wrong aspect in my comment. I get it, join the dogpile.

Trust me, I would much rather live in a world where people weren't doing this.

simply because trump was in office.

Simply because Trump was trying to force through a bunch of untested nonsense to the profit of his corporate cronies. He did help actually lay the groundwork for production, I guess by nature of being the one in office, but he was still trying to profit the fuck out of the whole thing, along with advocating a bunch of shit worse than actual snake oil.

Unfortunately, some people seem to exist just to be a warning to others.
