The thing that really made the original Amberlynn forum remotely doable was that it wasn't really part of the true KF community, just a lightning rod for a bunch of Amber-haters from across the Internet to coalesce, with no desire to integrate with the rest of the site. It took time and effort to straighten out the Amberlynn forum, and I'm sure that there was probably a backup plan to nuke the entire subforum and ban everyone inside.
Anarchy always leads to cultdom. When no one is in charge, the charismatic rule the boards. That never ends well. Anarchy is ultimately is the antithesis of free speech.This is why I stick to places where there is either no moderator presence or the userbase has beaten the mods into submission. Anarchy is the way to go
downvotes and insults can't stop you from posting, only jannies with delete and ban buttons can stop you from posting. the only thing jannies should be allowed to do is remove illegal content.Anarchy always leads to cultdom.

Bitch I know you're talking about me. I can't ban you in this forum but you just wait.If it's done right, you should barely notice the moderators exist because what they're doing is in tune with the general mood of the community. It becomes an issue when people start waving their dick around and deciding that they're the arbiters of comedy. Wanting to have the mod tools should be an automatic disqualification for ever getting them - the way doctors deal with drug seeking behaviour. The same should be true of politicians or police officers too IMO.
Most of the moderation on KF is good, but in any group you're going to get one or two fuckwits that can't hack it as a regular user and need the mod tools to flex on people funnier or more interesting than they are. Luckily, it really is only one or two here.
If I was talking about you I'd specifically have said that you need the mod tools to flex on people more interesting, funnier and less of a faggot than you are.Bitch I know you're talking about me. I can't ban you in this forum but you just wait.
No but that's a good point I suppose. That's probably why nobody on KF who expresses interest in becoming a mod has been promoted.
I can't help being a faggot, it's the way God made me.If I was talking about you I'd specifically have said that you need the mod tools to flex on people more interesting, funnier and less of a faggot than you are.
I believe @Null has said he has the policy of not promoting people that seek mod powers. The problem is once some people get them, they turn into the powersperg that can't help themselves. C'est la vie I suppose.
I called a mod a faggot in chat once and they screeched about how I must have not known they were there because how dare anyone criticise the mods and that I better watch out, and it just made me laugh harder.This place isn't ResetEra though, if you think a mod is acting like a faggot you can say always so.
