  • I’ve recently had a couple of totally unrelated negative interactions with an extremely self-rightious “powermod” who has control of a few of my favorite communities.

    This sounds like a good idea, since if I was to start shitposting about my experiences with a powermod, they could just remove my posts and ban me from the many communities they control.

    But, it could just turn into a cesspool of vendettas and hivemind whingeing about mods x poster dislikes. Ironically, this community would require great mods to not just be a hate circlejerk.

  • Does the old copypasta work here?

    I just downvoted your comment.


    What does this mean?

    The amount of points on your comment has decreased by one.

    Why did you do this?

    There are several reasons I may deem a comment to be unworthy of positive or neutral votes.

    These include, but are not limited to:

    • ⁠Rudeness towards other Lemmerinos,

    • A joke I personally disagreed with,

    • ⁠Spreading incorrect information,

    • Positively mention a website I dislike,

    • ⁠Sarcasm not correctly flagged with a /s.

    Am I banned from the The Instance?

    No - not yet. But you should refrain from making comments like this in the future. Otherwise I will be forced to issue an additional downvote, which may put your commenting and posting privileges in jeopardy.

    I don’t believe my comment deserved a downvote. Can you un-downvote it?

    Sure, mistakes happen. But only in exceedingly rare circumstances will I undo a downvote. If you would like to issue an appeal, shoot me a private message explaining what I got wrong. I tend to respond to PMs within several minutes. Do note, however, that over 99.9% of downvote appeals are rejected, and yours is likely no exception.

    How can I prevent this from happening in the future?

    Accept the downvote and move on. But learn from this mistake: your behavior will not be tolerated on this Lemmy instance. I will continue to issue downvotes until you improve your conduct. Remember: Lemmy is privilege, not a right.
