Mods can be held accountable for banning/removing comments of non-spam. We wouldnt need this if people only dv'ed spam and not dv'ed people they disagreed with.

This brings up a good point.

We have a report feature now that is under utilized.

I think users are hesitant to report because the only options are "Spam, illegal, and Dox"

I won't report a troll for spam, because it's trolling, not spam.

Maybe my standards for what I should report are misguided.

It takes a lot of work to hold mods accountable, often with negligible results. Work to the point of unreasonable burden. At least at the PG forum, this has been the experience.

EDIT to add - Here is a thread that overwhelmingly shows the community calling for a minimum of 100 points to comment, due to the level of shill attacks on the forum. https://voat.co/v/pizzagatewhatever/2030995

The mods are fully aware of this vote, yet take no steps to implement change or even address it. Just a massive shoulder shrug and a return to their pizza party.

Mods that seek to circumvent a report system can also spawn 50 alts and invite them all as mods, and those alts would have alts. Just look at Reddit, which is moderated by a spiderweb filled with nepotism and fake accounts. Once a system like that is in place your only option is to devote admin time to playing whack-a-mole.
