    I wish the admins would just go ahead and take a stance on it, one way or another.

    IMO there are websites out there for that FREE SPEECHâ„¢ bullshitery, so I say let those sites be the quarantine zone, and ban it here.

    Better make it clear now than wait years to ban it, thus pissing off the community. Like what happened at "that other site."

      Yeah, let's ban anything we don't agree with personally. I disagree with feminism and violet sports. Let's ban all sports tribes and all women from Snapzu.

        That's a slippery slope argument and it just doesn't make sense. You can always draw lines. Like at hate speech where it is now. Just ban hate speech and racism. That seems fair enough.

        I disagree with and we disagree with are two entirely different things, though, aren't they?

        How about making fun of disabled people, of poor people? Misogyny? Child hate? Homophobia? Religious extremism? I'd be in favor of banning it all. But I've got to say: While Reddit may have tons of this content and probably much worse, I never encountered it because the communities worked pretty well and subreddit admins have an incentive to keep it that way.

        I think the problem with banning stuff is that it is extremely difficult to get it right without a) going too far in either direction or b) have inconsistent rules. By saying anything goes except for things that are illegal in most parts of the modern world (wich is difficult enough mind you) you avoid that at the cost of hosting that content.

        edit: interesting how snapzu deals with deep comment nesting...

        "I never encountered it because the communities worked pretty well and subreddit admins have an incentive to keep it that way."

        On Snapzu though, everything is cross-posted to the front page. So that could be a pretty big issue. Also, I feel like a lot of people think that "what is illegal and what is not" is the only acceptable line to draw, when even as you said, that is a grey area too anyhow. Tons of subreddits have had success drawing the line around hate speech so there's no reason to assume it's too much of an issue for a website to handle.

        I don't know enough to tell the difference between /r/all and the Snapzu front page but my guess is they are similar. /r/all is just something one doesn't go to for all the reasons mentioned so far.

        I agree that it's easy to draw lines on a subreddit/tribe level. My comment was more geared towards the requests for a general stance from the site's administrators which is much more difficult imo.
