I'm sure a lot of you are confused by the events of the past couple days, and want to know what the future of this subverse will be. In the interests of full disclosure, I'd like to describe as concisely as possible the history of this sub.
There was a group of us, the Reddit Mod Team, who used to be united together on /r/altright and under the alt-right banner generally. Both myself and VoatForFreeSpeech were moderators of /r/altright. He had the foresight to know the sub would eventually get shoahd, so he made /v/identitarian as a backup.
Sure enough, /r/altright was banned, and we migrated here. VoatForFreeSpeech admittedly took a passive role in the sub shortly thereafter.
Over time, a split in moderation began to occur between those who wanted to retain a big tent philosophy, and those who wanted to reject labels like alt-right entirely in favor of pure ropeculture based NatSoc. I was removed from moderation for not sharing in their vision.
Eventually the owner, VoatForFreeSpeech returned. He also believed the sub should remain an open identitarian/alt-right forum, and expressed that desire.
In response, the existing moderation engaged in a full revolt, demanding he give up control of the sub immediately. They announced their strike, and the sub quickly devolved to shit, with mass porn being spammed and all css being removed.
VFFS tried to work things out with moderation, and in the meantime desperately tried to find new mods who would stop the spam and put things in order. He added me back onto moderation, and asked for assistance in IE. IE shared his request for assistance, and new mods were added.
Rambo used his connections from IE to leak these private, internal communications, something which is completely unacceptable and a violation of the trust and privacy we on the right rely on to operate. He was removed from moderation for this reason.
The owner continued to try to work with the rest of moderation, but they made it clear there could be no compromise. They began actively undermining the sub, deleting legitimate posts and users, pasting more private convos on to the sidebar, and unsticking the owners posts. Eventually the decision for a complete purge of moderation was made to restore order and sanity to the forum.
So that's where we are now. We continue to support ALL those agree with the 14 Words to post here regardless of their position on the spectrum. It will take time to get things back in order, so please be patient while we restore order and improve the quality of the sub. We will bring more trustworthy and reasonable moderators on to help bear the load of running this sub and to keep the trolls at bay.
These are simply the facts of what transpired, and I will leave it to you to draw your own conclusions and meet your own judgments. We hope you will work with us toward maintaining the quality of this sub and ensuring it's growth.
EDIT: Alright everyone, most of the garbage has been deleted and trolls banned. The report queue has also been cleared. The sub is looking clean at the moment.
Please use both the report function and the downvote to help keep trolls off our sub, and continue upvoting quality content. We will win this war yet.
Feel free to message the mods if you have any issues or feel you have been banned unjustifiably.
