Back when this site was first created the idea of user moderation worked well enough, drama was around but not enough to a excessive amount, now that the site has grown and the diversity of our users has expanded self moderation can no longer work and no longer can this sites staff sit on their hands.
Back when Scat anon was around our staff allowed him to do as he pleased which was to harass a poster for his own amusement, eventually staff members stepped in but gave underwhelming responses to the problem which allowed him to force Mikie for a small time to leave the board until finally be banned, but only was so because of collective user demand of something that should have happened way before the users would need to do such as that.
Now today /oat/ has a somewhat of the same problem problem with different users.
Almost everyday if not everyday there has been fighting and massive thread derails focused around Toybox for about transgenderds and sometimes different reasons.
Although Toyboxs responses escalated such fights like jumping from 0 to 10 when one of her enemy posters make a hostile comment about the controversial topic or attacking an anon in full force who has just arrived and does not know much about Toy or her condition, but what is clear to me is that most of these are not started by Toy.
Some of these anons may have been wronged first by Toy as she lashed out at anything around her when these were happening but the ones who follow to each thread she posts in shining a spot light on the posts she makes and them mocking them in some way forces the derail are the real problem behind this drama.
I will not be going into detail about about the trans argument or my views on it and neither should anyone who responds to this post as we have hear the argument over a thousand times and it makes no progress.
This problem has more users involved and for different reasons so the same answer would not work and I do not suggest the banning of the people involved, but this cannot be allowed to continue.
As said at the beginning our chan has grown, our community has reached a point on where we are to divided to settle and it will only go on. We need our mods to step in to stop these derails, to stop the true derailers of each individual threads that attempt to continue this endless fight.
