Good news, you no longer have to think about etiquette policy violating hate speech

(because the etiquette policy no longer applies)

Yeah, I wish they would word their policy on what’s allowed and what’s banned better, if only to save themselves time. I just tried to report stamps and a group memorializing Hitler for being “right.” I read everything in the FAQ about reporting but they had to explain by e-mail that it was allowed because it wasn’t a direct threat to a specific person.

 

I wish I could enjoy spending more time in the forums. Kind of hard to find good conversations with how off topic things get, or good posts getting deleted for being around too long.

Yeah I'm fucking done. Done trying to make excuses for the people who I know genuinely love this site and try to do what's right. Everything. There's a reason my presence here hasn't been as engaged as it used to be.

Also I'm drunk so take that as you will P:

(Sober neuro says, yeah this is it. I was done when they said that they use a different internal policy, not the etiquette policy at all. There's no reason for it to still be displayed, except to look good.)

This is still up so either it's horseshit or the guy who told me actually they don't enforce anti hate speech policies should be disciplined: www.deviantartsupport.com/en/a…

Yeah they should re-write that one and take the references to hate speech out, it makes practical and financial sense to not get involved and remain politically neutral.

I would be more ok with that than their current attempt to brownnose everyone.

Are we able to see this internal policy?

Also, seeing that many staff do browse here and there, did they come upon this post to address it yet?

I was told no, which is fine. Assuming something similar to the Wix one that's basically like "don't come for our other customers."

No idea. Honestly I don't expect them to, I can't imagine there's that much of a choice for them, either.

Wait, what? What do you mean it no longer applies?

Reported a comment that effectively said "apartheid is good because it controlled the black population." Was told that, according to their internal policy, this is not policy violating speech (and I did quote that section of the etiquette policy first).

That is so disappointing and disheartening... :/

Yeah. I don't see any fucking reason to stand up for a site that is run by people who think this is a good policy.

It's a statement that requires context. What do they mean by "control", is it implying the sort of way we treat the animals or controlling crime, reducing infighting? Of course, I'm ignorant when it comes to the said topic, but yes, the statement seems racist regardless of the context. Assuming that's how it was worded and not how you interpreted it. I hate reading interpretations of others. I'd rather come up with my own. But if the person was saying that black people are animals that need to be controlled, that was racist of them.

Could you please complete the sentence "apartheid was good" - which, yes, is a direct quote - in a way that isn't racist? I really don't think context would change anything here.
