so as i see it (Please correct me if im wrong)if i said a few racist or discriminatory comments over and over most chances i will never get a ban or a per ban bc i have friends who will back me up no matter what.
i hardly think its fair that a ban should be by the popularity of the User, Indeed in a democracy the majority rules over the minority but where the protection of the minority right?
I do think there are things that shoild be voted, ur totally right about that but bans arnt one of them IMHO
Do you believe your "friends" are the majority of the entire MTF userbase (or at least those who would be willing to vote)? It's irrelevant anyway, we're only talking about major decisions like permabans. Most bans, thread deletions, and day to day administration would be run by the mods and admins since it's not really feasible to have democratic decision making on everything (even though this is ideal and should be slowly worked towards).
There are no minority rights to speak of, we're purely talking about a negative power here. The passive power to prevent a ban is not the same as the active power to ban someone. You're not really understanding here, and tbh you're derailing the thread with it. Not to be rude, but please take a course on political science or something here, I really don't feel like describing the difference between negative and positive rights, consensus vs. direct democracy, popularity vs. majority consent.
I presume most people here are from democratic countries, in which the mod system of absolute power in a few individuals is unthinkable. Israel is one of those countries. That this is unthinkable on the internet, and even beyond that people don't even understand how their own systems work or the philosophy behind democracy, is
