New feature: Report offensive comments
So this is about the front page story for those that have not seen it. I just wanted to say that I am really disappointed that after defending brickset and saying how brickset wont turn into a police state the commenting was closed.
There was one questionable comment and a debate around if this comment was ok or not. In a post about reporting offensive comments knowing what would be classed as offensive is kind of important.
The comment was then changed not because the mods thought there was anything wrong with it but because a lot of people reported it which is also odd. I didn't like the comment and would have removed it but I would also hope if the mods were happy with it they would leave it be (no matter what I thought).
I think at the moment we are in a funny place with commenting on the main site after t-rex gate (get it like watergate) so I think having a conversation about it could be helpful. But the conversation was closed because this debate was happening.
I guess my feedback is:
Adding a report button: Good
Changing someones post because its offensive: Good
Changing someones post just because a lot of people reported it: Bad
Closing the commenting because you dont like the conversation: Bad
