Gotta remember, a large portion of the userbase thinks that they should have the power to dictate what is allowed to be discussed on the free speech website.

I don't understand how striving for transparency is equated to dictating what can be discussed.

I'm referring to more than just this specific discussion.This shit has been going on for well over a year now.

Apparently "free speech" only refers to ranting about jews and black people. As soon as someone makes a subverse about other shit, certain users start complaining about "forum sliding" because their posts about hating jews and black people aren't staying on the front page long enough for their tastes anymore.

And heaven forbid a mod bans them for trying to shoehorn that shit into the new subverse no matter how irrelevant it is. They'll spend weeks throwing a hissy fit across the entire site because they're victims unless they get to say "nigger" every 15 minutes.

The only transparency needed in this case is the admins, the general userbase has no need to have a catalogue of every subverse in existence across the entire site. All in all it just boils down to "but if it's private I won't be able to use it."
