Hello World,

Today, after careful consideration and evaluation of recent events, we have decided to defederate from Lemmygrad.

Regrettably, we have observed a significant increase in hate speech and calls to violence originating from the Lemmygrad instance. Due to the severity of the posts and comments, we are not waiting for the next Lemmy update that will allow users to block instances.

At Lemmy.world, we have always strived to foster an inclusive and welcoming user environment. However, recent posts and comments from Lemmygrad have clearly violated our server rules and, more importantly, our core values. We firmly believe that hate speech and incitement of violence have no place in our community, regardless of personal beliefs or affiliations.

As always, we encourage all users to report any content they deem inappropriate or harmful. No matter one’s stance in any conflict, Lemmy.world will always take immediate action to remove and ban any posts or comments that incite violence or propagate hatred.

We encourage everyone to continue engaging in discussions within the boundaries of respect and understanding. As we move forward with this decision, we remain committed to providing all community members with a safe and welcoming space. We appreciate your continued support and cooperation in upholding our shared principles.

Thank you,

The Lemmy.World Team

    Thank you so much, it’s like the Winter Solstice came early! They’re literally a bunch of sweaty, genocide-loving neckbeards who never outgrew the college commie phase crying about how hard and unfair their upper-class suburban lives are under (their idea of) capitalism and how North Korea is secretly a paradise because “something something healthcare that probably exists there”- all from the $3000 computer whose SSD made by abused children in Taiwan has 694.20 gigabytes of porn (shot by and starring filthy-rich adult content creators), in the comfort of their septuagenarian mothers’ basements on her personal, private property in Washington State- all made possible by capitalism. And they think they’d be better off under a system that would actually ship them off to die in Alaska on day one, instead of giving them a high rank and a state-issued bride. (But we Washingtonians don’t claim them)

    I’m honestly surprised they had to cheer on the murder of innocent children in Israel for you guys to do this for us, when they’d spent months being all “ackchyually the Holodomor didn’t happen but I hope it happens again because daddy putin says all Ukrainians are nazis, therefore it must be true and they’d deserve it!!1”

      Most of their communities were already blocked, for months.

        If by “them” you mean lemmygrad and hexbear users, then yes. They ban all who don’t agree 100% with their stupid takes on any given issue.

        If by “them” you mean Palestinians in regards to the actions of hamas, if you’d bothered to see my comment history you’d see that I’ve only ever spoken out AGAINST people who actually believe or are arguing that.

          Sorry for the brief comment before, was on my phone. Was talking about the users on lemmygrad.ml.

          What I mean is, I mean, be careful about lumping people under stereotypes. It does seem like a tankie instance but some of their stances seem perfectly reasonable. The frustrating thing about Marxist theory in general is that it provides this general framework for describing systems of imperial and economic oppression, but does such a shitty job understanding the corollaries between that and the functioning of “communist” states. A lot of people get drawn in to that kind of thinking observing U.S. imperialism and such. I wouldn’t generalize too angrily about them, vast majority of people have some kind of half-baked ideology or another and it’s always just degrees of how many mistakes they’re making across a given group.

      College commie phase? Maybe in the 70s. Not any more, we have more evidence now.

      Like, 90% of them are younger than HS, I’d put money on it.

      Incidentally, they banned me from their Instance, so that kid can’t actually see what I wrote. It’s such a counter-productive thing to their goals, banning me for arguing with them but then losing the ability to actually combat the things I say, is really, catastrophically fucking stupid, if your goal is to spread communism. Because now I’m a ghost that other people can still hear that can obliterate their arguments without them getting to respond, every time I see one.

      But, it’s also the kind of thing a kid would do. Ban what they don’t like.
