Well thank you, we really do appreciate it. It's funny, /mlp/ has definitely settled down but I actually like here better mainly because of how the mods are and of course because here we get our porn. It's just crazy, because of 4chan's global rule 15 there is literally no place on the site where you can post clop. You can post loli, yiff, bestiality, scat, gore etc. all on at least /b/, but you post anything explicit with an MLP character and you get banned. We've complained about it endlessly, and they refuse to do anything. The thing about 4chan's mods and moot is that they are extremely
selective about what they choose to respond to, and in really dumb ways. Like moot won't say a word about the state of /mlp/ when everyone is freaking out about it starting ten threads at once on /q/ (/q/ is 4chan's meta board), but then he goes and posts in an off-topic doubles thread. It's like really?? And I'm such a fucking sucker, I actually bought a 4chan Pass with my own money that I earned and I STILL can't post pony porn anywhere. I mean it's not like I was expecting to be exempt from the rules but you would think moot would show a little more care towards what he himself described as one of the largest sub-cultures to ever come out of 4chan.
One of the great things about this site is that it has a decent amount of traffic but it hasn't caught the attention of tons of underage posters or spammers. I mean there's not even captcha here which is absolutely amazing. It's funny because moot said he was NEVER going to implement captcha, and then a couple years later he's CHARGING people to get RID of it. Anyways I just think it's difficult for forums/imageboards to have a good balance of noticeably active moderation that helps things instead of pissing people off. Like I said, the 4chan mods just silently ban people, and then on sites like 7chan or 420chan you get publicly banned just for making mistakes…basically Nazi moderation. You guys seem to do it really well here, I think it's important that the users like the mods instead of just being afraid of them.
