/r/DebateAnarchismBasic questions

from pnoque[M] to  /r/DebateAnarchism/  sent 1 month ago

Hello fellow mods, I need to ask you all about something that has been bothering me. It seems like a lot of the posts lately in /r/DebateAnarchism are not debate topics but basic questions about anarchism. Should we be removing those posts and referring OPs to /r/Anarchy101? Seems silly to have non-debate topics in a debate sub. Perhaps we should require posts to be submitted as a debate topic that has more than one side and is more than just informative. Thoughts?

re: Basic questions

from pnoque[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to pnoque sent 1 month ago

Or should be just keep it easy and casual?

re: Basic questions

from justcallcollect[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to pnoque sent 1 month ago

Maybe just try to make it a point of suggesting people repost on 101? I feel like a lot of the time that people do this, it's less that they are looking for info about it and more that they think they know the answer and want to argue about it.

re: Basic questions

from hamjam5[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to justcallcollect sent 1 month ago

I prefer keeping it casual, and I like JCC's suggestion to just respond to posts you think aren't really debate by recommending to them to try 101 -- seems like this is normally what is done by folks in such instances anyway.

re: Basic questions

from pnoque[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to hamjam5 sent 1 month ago

OK, sounds good. Thank you both for your feedback!

re: Basic questions

from hamjam5[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to pnoque sent 23 days ago

What do anarchists think of revisiting this topic?

I mean, seriously, right? I have no problem with people asking a question that may lead to debate if they take the time to actually frame it, but these, "what do you think about____" with no content in the prompt -- I think it may be time to remove those kinds of questions with a request to the OP to actually write a little bit of a prompt framing the topic for discussion and debate.

Thoughts?

re: Basic questions

from pnoque[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to hamjam5 sent 23 days ago

Agreed.

re: Basic questions

from justcallcollect[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to pnoque sent 23 days ago

Yes, that's reasonable, it does seem to be a constant issue.

re: Basic questions

from emma-_______[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to hamjam5 sent 23 days ago

Sounds good.

re: Basic questions

from justcallcollect[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to emma-_______ sent 23 days ago

Would someone wanna come up with a few sentence long boiler plate thing that we can copy paste on posts like this? Like how askhistorians has a standard "this post has been deleted because...." thing that gets used over and over?

re: Basic questions

from hamjam5[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to justcallcollect sent 23 days ago

Good idea. As a starting point, on the three threads I removed today (I didn't remove ones that had comments), I said the following:

Hi, the mod team has decided to remove your post. The topic of discussion is totally fine, but, without writing more of a prompt, you haven't really framed the topic in such a way that it facilitates much debate or discussion.

[I then put a different suggestion on what sort of prompt may help facilitate conversation specific to each post I removed, for example: "Perhaps you could repost with a short description of the relevant parts of Veblen and Marx that you are interested in the opinion of anarchists on. Something like: M thinks x, v thinks y -- I prefer either x or v because of z, which of these is closer to anarchist perspectives."]

Otherwise, your post would probably be better suited for /r/anarchy101

re: Basic questions

from pnoque[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to hamjam5 sent 23 days ago

Beautiful.

re: Basic questions

from emma-_______[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to justcallcollect sent 23 days ago

If you want to use standardized responses like this we could set some up using /r/toolbox's removal reasons.

re: Basic questions

from justcallcollect[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to emma-_______ sent 7 days ago

So im kind of torn on this right now. The post about the difference between private and personal property seems like it should be deleted and sent to 101, the OP clearly has some misunderstandings about anarchism and stuff...but at the same time, so many times I've seen posts like that in 101, and it usually ends up that the OP clearly doesn't just want their question answered, but wants to argue about it, and so i suggest them go to the debate sub. Is this just an endless feedback loop we can't control?

re: Basic questions

from hamjam5[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to justcallcollect sent 7 days ago

I think we should err on the side of not removing such posts. Sometimes people put in a lot less effort and it is clear they are just asking a question , whereas this person wrote quite a prompt that already contains some push back and debate within it.

If it is one of the clear low effort question posts I think removing those to de-clutter things is helpful.

from of_ice_and_rock to  /r/DebateAnarchism/  sent 8 days ago

Having studied some of the European history of Jews, I'm quite perplexed why so many anarchists have told me they consider them their allies, so I wanted to see what the justification was.

re: You've been banned from participating in /r/DebateAnarchism

from pnoque[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to of_ice_and_rock sent 8 days ago

Then you should have engaged in honest debate instead of trolling, yeah?

/r/DebateAnarchismAutomoderator Mistaking Comments for Spam - Wildism AMA

from wildism to  /r/DebateAnarchism/  sent 13 days ago

Hey ya'll, I've noticed that some of my comments under the Wildism AMA are being automatically tagged as spam. One hasn't yet been untagged.

I just want to give you a heads up so that tomorrow when the AMA is stickied and official, you can fix that problem, if that's possible. If it isn't, let me know so I can edit the post with a notification that answers may be delayed.

Thanks ya'll.

Morning everyone! Just opened the Anti-civ AMA thread :p

/r/DebateAnarchismquestion about a post

from rgftzx to  /r/DebateAnarchism/  sent 20 days ago

can I post a request to critique a pro-anarchist writing that I made on another subreddit?

re: question about a post

from emma-_______[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to rgftzx sent 20 days ago

This place is more geared toward debate than critique. If there's anything specific in there that you'd want to debate you could post them here. But if you're just looking for a general critique on your writing this isn't really the right place.

re: question about a post

I'm glad I asked. Thanks

/r/DebateAnarchismWildism AMA

from wildism to  /r/DebateAnarchism/  sent 27 days ago

Hi, I'm considering the possibility of doing an AMA on wildism, esp. given recent controversy around the eco-extremists. Is this something the subreddit would be willing to host?

re: Wildism AMA

from wildism via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to wildism sent 25 days ago

Hey, just making sure you didn't accidentally mark this as unread and then forget about it.

re: Wildism AMA

from pnoque[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to wildism sent 25 days ago

I have reservations about a wildism AMA from user named wildism who mods the wildism subreddit and spams wildism.org everywhere.

re: Wildism AMA

from wildism via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to pnoque sent 25 days ago

Okay. I will say that I only just learned about the 30% rule and am currently trying to fix that (I've hovered around 30% but have gone over it a few times), I just can't post random stuff that doesn't really matter, so it's taking a bit.

As for the subreddit and username, I'm not sure why those things by themselves are problems, unless it's just in conjunction with the 30% problem.

re: Wildism AMA

from wildism via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to wildism sent 25 days ago

By that I mean, please let me know why the are problems if they are.

re: Wildism AMA

from pnoque[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to wildism sent 25 days ago

Just makes it seem very promotional and spammy.

re: Wildism AMA

from pnoque[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to pnoque sent 25 days ago

It's a "no" from me but each mod will weigh in and we'll go with what the majority of us votes.

re: Wildism AMA

from wildism via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to pnoque sent 25 days ago

Okay, thank you.

re: Wildism AMA

from hamjam5[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to wildism sent 25 days ago

I personally am not interested in it, but if others in the community want it or other mods want it, I don't see a problem with it.

Perhaps make a post on the Schedule thread seeing if others in the community other than the mods want to show interest in seeing such an AMA. If so, I'll be happy to add it to the schedule.

re: Wildism AMA

from wildism via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to hamjam5 sent 25 days ago

Okay, I'll do that a little later today.

re: Wildism AMA

from justcallcollect[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to wildism sent 25 days ago

Wildism, are you familiar or friendly with jeriah bowser? He has an ama tentatively scheduled, and I feel there may be some overlap in what you both may want to talk about. Do you think you two could tag team an ama on wildism and wilderness therapy?

re: Wildism AMA

from wildism via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to justcallcollect sent 25 days ago

I'm familiar with Jeriah. We have radically different definitions of "wildism" and I think he actually stopped using the word. Not sure though. We don't actually get along so I don't keep up with him.

re: Wildism AMA

from justcallcollect[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to wildism sent 25 days ago

Ok. I don't personally see any reason not to let you do an ama. Even if us mods aren't super interested, it's not for us anyway so....you wanna do it after the anti civ one? Unless another mod has serious reservations beyond personal disinterest?

re: Wildism AMA

from wildism via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to justcallcollect sent 25 days ago

Is this something the mods have agreed on? I don't know if you can see everyone's replies in messages, but it seems like you are all saying slightly different things.

But yes, I think doing it after the anti-civ one would be most appropriate.

re: Wildism AMA

from justcallcollect[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to wildism sent 25 days ago

Ya I can see, just voicing where I'm at about it.

re: Wildism AMA

from wildism via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to justcallcollect sent 25 days ago

So here is the offer in a comment under the schedule thread. I'll message some anti-civ reddit people I know are active on the subreddit and see if they're interested as well.

/r/DebateAnarchismRemoved a post, candidate for banning?

from hamjam5[M] to  /r/DebateAnarchism/  sent 1 month ago

I removed this post:

https://www.reddit.com/r/DebateAnarchism/comments/4r2zm5/no_borders_movement_ama/d4zf22m

Makes all sorts of uncharitable assumptions and personal attacks.

Is this over the top enough to where we should just ban this (literal) nazi?

re: Removed a post, candidate for banning?

from pnoque[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to hamjam5 sent 1 month ago

I think this should count as a warning, and we watch their activity in our sub for any further violations which would then warrant a ban.

re: Removed a post, candidate for banning?

from pnoque[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to hamjam5 sent 1 month ago

Perfectly willing to cede though if the rest of you just want to ban them now.

re: Removed a post, candidate for banning?

from justcallcollect[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to pnoque sent 1 month ago

I'm fine to call it a warning. Doesn't seem like they're doubling down or anything as of now

re: Removed a post, candidate for banning?

from hamjam5[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to justcallcollect sent 1 month ago

I'm fine with a warning as well since they ee3m to be trying to debate now. I can send it later today if yall want, or please feel free to do so as well.

Banned me and deleted my posts. That's dirty yo. Mad that I pointed out that users are sliding to the dark side? Violent suppression of opposing political ideologies is something I've come to expect from Fascists but I must say that I am quite surprised to see Anarchists so willing to utilize violence to further their political agenda. Keep up the good work.

re: You've been banned from participating in /r/DebateAnarchism

from justcallcollect[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to RexAnglorumSaxonum sent 1 month ago

Further proof that even after all the time you've spent debating anarchists, you still know nothing about anarchism.

Hi RexAnglorumSaxonum, your ban has been reversed. Please consider this a warning to abide by the rules in the sidebar from now on to avoid a permanent ban. You are welcome to continue to participate in civil debate here as long as you do. Thanks.

/r/DebateAnarchismRex

from justcallcollect[M] to  /r/DebateAnarchism/  sent 1 month ago

Hey, so I see rex Anglo whatever got banned. While I don't object, I'm curious as to the specific reasoning. I didn't see them break any rules.

re: Rex

from hamjam5[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to justcallcollect sent 1 month ago

Yeah, I was going to send a message on this too. I can see removing the posts and matybe warning about shitposting instead of debating, but I think banning was hasty on this case.

re: Rex

from emma-_______[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to hamjam5 sent 1 month ago

I might have been a bit fast with the ban, but they're definitely not debating in good faith or treating people charitably. They at least need a warning.

re: Rex

from justcallcollect[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to emma-_______ sent 1 month ago

I mean, it's already done, and they don't seem to be bothered by it so I'm not sure it's worth unbanning them. I was mostly just curious if something happened that I didn't see. But if others feel they should be unbanned but warned I wouldn't object to that either

re: Rex

from hamjam5[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to justcallcollect sent 1 month ago

I think unbanning and warning them to put forth their criticism of anarchism in the form of debate and not as taunting uncharitable shit posting would be the right course of action.

They've enyaged in constructive debate here in the past, otherwise I wouldn't be saying anything.

re: Rex

from pnoque[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to hamjam5 sent 1 month ago

Agree with unbanning and warning.

re: Rex

from emma-_______[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to hamjam5 sent 1 month ago

I unbanned them. Did you want to warn them or should I?

Thanks.

re: July 23rd AMA

from hamjam5[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to stirner_was_a_cat sent 1 month ago

Yes, that slot is still open. It goes against the standard procedure for adding AMAs, but if the other mods are cool with it, then I think it is a good idea and I'd be more than happy to add you to the schedule.

Other mods care to weigh in on this?
