Public mod log for all actions.

One view hides removals based on subreddit rules defined in sidebar with an aim towards general appeal.

The other view is always prominently linked (think "UNCENSORED") for anyone using the "safe space" view.

Submissions and comments show up in both places, they are both sourced from the same content.

The censored version is just an additional layer of optional community filtering that remains easily bypassed and completely ignorable for anyone mature enough to engage in actual discourse.

I'm not suggesting that one view is better or worse than the other, my own preference would be for the uncensored version full time and I would likely disable any filtering options as I already do for nsfw etc....

In fact I quite like the idea of labeling one version the censored version and speaking of it derisively like training wheels because that's what it would be.

It's not segregation if everyone is still posting and commenting in the same place with 2 (or more) different views to the content.

The difference here is that people are able to avoid content that they find objectionable. The internet is not a physical space, and the limitations of physical spaces do not apply here.

Try telling someone that they cannot go somewhere and naturally they want to.

That's part of the reasoning behind this idea. I think there will be a lot of natural draw to the "uncensored" view if we can get people to stay long enough to value in the site beyond the ability to call each other nigger faggots.
