Removal of "Problematic" Discord emojis

Postby technokek » Mon Sep 07, 2020 4:58 pm #575351

Hello,

this is my first post on the forum. I am sorry that its a negative one at that.

Since the policy to purge bigorty and racism from this community has finally taken into affect i think its time to remove all symbols that might make people think they are welcome to express hate here.

I would suggest removing the redpill and bluepill discord emojis. These symbols are deeply imbedded in alt-right culture and might give a false impression that the server is approving such groups.

More about Redpill and Bluepill meanings can be found here https://www.adl.org/blog/the-extremist- ... line-pills .

Secondly i would suggest removing the :disabled: emoji since it makes a joke? or something at the expense of disabled people.

Thanks for reading,

if you have any ideas or points or see this in a different way feel free to tell me.

The best part is, they did this for free without receiving a payment from me. The people are finally free from that retarded borg, absolutely amazing! Highly recommend giving Delaron a call if you need help bwoinking some retard! I can't wait to see what the future of my bwoink requests has to hold with the help of Delaron!

Doesn't exist. can we get a 3rd bait thread tho for the trilogy

For those who aren't concern trolling however still want it gone, I'm pretty sure it's mostly used ironically unless you enter the fucking political shadow realm so do remember that satire is a thing. except the reddit emotes because uh those are actually 100% serious and a personal assault to my honor if you rate my post with a fucking downvote arrow

How is this not serious? Just because i made a shitty feedback post drunk on the forum once? Are all my future posts invalid because i made 1 shitty one?

Should i make a new forum account and pretend to be someone else if i have any genuine problems here now?
