    On the one hand, modding is a thankless job cleaning up unending shit. I can’t blame mods who take shortcuts, or jump to conclusions, or create inviolable rules.

    On the other hand, it’s a volunteer position. If you don’t want to do it right, why do it at all?

    I’ve been banned for so many incredibly stupid things, and many I don’t even know why I was banned.

      I got banned from c/Tumblr (on Lemmy.world I think) for making a joke about how Tumblr screenshots always include a stupid reply that never adds to the joke. First offense, no warning. By the powermod who has since gone on hiatus
