We demand fair, balanced moderation.
We, the users below, would like to express our angst with the moderating on TTW of late.
We understand and embrace the need for a safe and welcoming environment for all people and fan bases, and we welcome moderating that is designed to foster that goal. Recent behaviour by the moderation team, however, has clearly demonstrated otherwise. Innocuous and good natured posts have been disappearing without transparency or warning, and there has been no attempt to make evident the distinction between "hateful and innocuous speech." Entire threads, which have been well intentioned in the spirit of community building and aimed to facilitate discourse, have been deleted, yet hateful posts have remained. This simple minded, and, in many ways, arbitrary approach to moderation seems to be conditional upon user reporting, and it is thoroughly being misused to the detriment of all.
Our immediate goal is to initiate a dialogue to address these and more issues. We would appreciate access to moderators whom are responsible for the continued health of the forum towards a gainful and productive discussion.
This is your forum and we are extremely appreciative of this virtual space where we have been able to foster a little community in this niche world of ours. Your own lack of attention to moderation is undoing many years of effort. We hope someone sees this as important enough to explain matters which have all of us confused, and quite frankly jointly considering alternative communication tools.
