Not sure if the recent ban wave is relevant but in the past week we’ve had several users contact us about their questions being removed for tripping our automod on this “relationship” between homosexuality and pedophilia. We have noticed an average of 3 a day for the past week.
I'm not here to lecture about consent, how kids cannot give proper consent, how homosexuality isn't a mental illness etc because I do believe it is possible to ask this question from a position of ignorance and not one of malevolence. Our position has always tried to be one of open-minded to questions that get asked here because of the very nature of our sub and the type of community we try to foster.
That being said, we do not believe that these posts lately are coming from a position of ignorance. With a careful look at our traffic stats, the start of these kinds of posts, post histories of accounts asking these questions, the context of recent subreddit ban waves and an internal discussion over the last few days, we have made the disappointing decision to enact penalties against users who parrot these types of talking points.
外围体育投注While TooAfraidToAsk prides itself on allowing users as much of a free Q&A experience as possible, we cannot allow this sub to be brigaded by bad faith questions, especially from users with post histories from recently banned subs.
We hope to relax these restrictions again in the future, at a time where users posting questions here can be a little more reliable with their reasoning for asking.
