I think what he does for some of them is the opposite of censorship. If there is one.

Clearly listing someones real first name, place they will be, and time they will be there is against Fark TOS?

Wonder if the mods will act on it?

If someone were to submit an article with government statistics that shows the truth about gun violence, redlighting that article and greenlighting one from MOJO that is full of hyperbole and rhetoric and half truths is not censorship.


/or is it

Yeah I'm still all torn up about something that happened four years ago.  Inconsolable

The Moderator Caste is what keeps this place from turning into the kind of mono-opinionated circle jerk that the Slashdots and Reddits of the world invariably degrade into.

"Free speech" doesn't apply on the Internet. When you enter someone else's forum, someone else's game, you're in their house. You're on their property. Their rules apply to you now, not congressional restrictions. If they say "Don't be a douche", and you act like a douche, they have the right to ban your ass. Hell, they have the right to ban your ass at any given time, and there's not a lot you can do about it. Get over it, kids.

screw Falseface Stewart right up the arse. another jerkoff born with a silver spoon in his mouth, failed as an actor and wound up mocking media for money. gee, HS 'cool' rich kid who slums it with the stoners while raking in millions for doing so. watch: years from now he'll be in politics and be an even bigger part of the problem and non of the solution. fark you, Jon with no 'h' Stewart. i got your number right here pal. you can fool some of the dooshbags some of the time...

Fark's moderating problems are primarily inconsistency and ambiguity. Rules are not applied uniformly and when a Farker is punished they're often not told. I don't mean not told why - which also happens - just not told at all.

Wait, Is Ms. Mapes a Mod?

Helpfully clarifying whether a link is indeed to an actual satire site and not just some Poe's Law-fueled suckblog and generally being the voice of reason and keeping one's head "when all about are losing theirs" kinda thing?

Cos I thoroughly approve of that type of modding.

I disagree with some of the changes Fark has made, but I can't say I've seen any problems with the moderation.
Admins are the ones that greenlight the blatantly false and misleading headlines/articles.

That's one example, yes. Another that springs to mind is the "wall of boobs" rule. There is some vague limit to the number of tit pics a person can post at once. Yet posting multiple single pics repeatedly is A-OK. So one post with 30 pics is bad but 30 posts with one pic is good.

Who's in charge of making sure Drew is sober and remembers to wear pants to these various interview thingies he does?

Is there someone specifically or is it more of a "fingers crossed" thing?

Since this was on the radio, guess the pants were not an issue... this time.

Oh, I think it was. There was this odd echo during the interview that screamed "bathroom tiles".  He should have done something to improve the sound quality.
