Disagreement does not automatically equal "bickering post" or if that were the case, no-one's threads on Off-topic would be approved.peanutz wrote: ↑Mar 1st, 2018 6:14 pmAnother example of subjective judgments leading to inconsistent moderation:
A discussion escalated into bickering with daivey in a thread where he admitted to never selling a thing on Kijiji but was telling other Kijiji sellers how they should do it (or how he would imagine doing it.)
daivey is in the Penalty Box, which supposedly means his posts had to be approved by a mod. Therefore, apparently a mod was approving his bickering posts with me.
I tried to ignore it when it became clear that he was exaggerating my position/POV into more extreme and ridiculous scenarios, but he multi-posted and only after I responded pointing out his double standards, were both of our posts moderated/removed.
So why is that? Why was some mod approving bickering posts?
There are users calling for decreased use of subjectivity. Not only is it possible that mods are out of step with the userbase (I'm not sure about that, maybe, maybe not), but it's clear that mods are not even in step with each other.
(I am not singling out any moderator as I feel that this is a system/policy issue.)
