This dude posts a wildly racist meme of Michelle Obama. I report the post. Funnily enough, the racist post is posted by the mod of dankmemes, dankchristianmemes and some other shit hole.

Said mod then starts sending abusive transphobic messages to me. Try to report the user. Nothing happens when I hit the button.

Shit like this is why Lemmy isn’t a viable alternative yet. We need to do better and be better.

    I had a similar experience, but their response was better. I had been talking on a certain sub for months (an illness support sub…) and there was one user who was prominently abrasive. Actually an odd mixture of acting tough mixed with seeming very sensitive, so I suppose basically a bully. We didn’t get along great. He liked giving factually incorrect advice mixed with telling us all we were “weak pussies” for being concerned about illness. I don’t remember all the details, but at some point he started blatantly using alternate accounts to support his viewpoints and harass people. I called him out on that and he was angry about it, and started saying things like “I’ll be in Portland next week, maybe I’ll come pay you a little visit” and “you’d better watch for me, I’ll be seeing you soon”. Reddit admins did remove his main account along with the 2-3 others he was using.
