@rice @gid There's good evidence that moderation does reduce hate speech. If someone says horrible things about women or about people with disabilities, clear words and actions from moderators that these statements are not welcome do a lot to reduce them overall.

Without these moderator words and actions, the nasties proliferate and even encourage each other.

We have evidence that you don't have to tolerate the bad to keep the good.

@JordiGH @rice@niu.moe @gid but who is to say what is the bad? It’s a slippery slope, even my worst enemy should have a voice. Let them spew the vile hate fueled words many find offensive. For I will listen and try to understand. They cry out for attention and love. Because a piece of them is in need of repair. 🖤
