I mean, I know for a fact that you can't back up this really kind of heavy accusation. You're aware that we, as always, have IP logs, were actively checking for reregs as the thread went on, right? Don't spread lies about people, even if those people are banned from here.
(I was just told that Xkeeper was exactly one of those accounts, and Kieran specifically allowed that re-reg and even invited her to the Discord, so uh yeah. I can't say I agree with randomly allowing a permabanned user back just to participate in a big pile of drama, but I wasn't around at that time so I didn't even know it happened.)

The issue though that I see is this: You have people in positions of authority use varying criteria and personal standards on what to determine on who is or isn't acting in good faith.
.. what exactly is this even referring to? This doesn't seem to have to do with the discussion here, so it's kind of hard to figure out what exactly you're talking about, since this wasn't an issue of moderation or anything. Though that would be better placed in its own discussion, or in staff feedback.

Alternatively you could just ban any and all political talk considering how the outcome of political discussions usually devolve into uncivilized behavior on all sides. And lets be honest, why would anyone join a ROM-Hacking site just to shill their political opinions anyway, aren't there other places for that kind of shit?
And yet we had a politics thread that went just fine. You're completely missing the issue here, which is how that thread was posted and where and by whom.
The contents of that thread could've gone just fine into a GD or RC thread, given enough disclaimer that it has nothing to do with official site policy and really is just a discussion, but it wasn't.

I mean, I don't even understand your issue with some of these quotes. idol's first one is a funny (lol at thinking that that's racism) and the second one is a completely normal sentence in response to Alcaro acting like he's an expert on the subject of rape and when it's okay to use the word to mean things that aren't the actual crime. Like, did you just screenshot that because she used the word rape? You're aware that it's not a slur, right?
Maxo's, Telinc's and Medic's quotes are totally valid complaints yeah, until you remember that "staff" is not a monolithic mass of people with all the same ideals (especially since we have two types of staff, and one of those types isn't chosen for their expert handling of words). I'm fairly sure you've never seen any of the 3 people you quoted there complain about other people saying those things, but you can be sure that we internally told them off for that exact sort of thing, multiple times in some cases. If you think that isn't consistent, then please point out any single person we've ever banned only for saying either of those specific words.
As for my quote there, I'm saying that with the trend of gun debate dying down just a week or two after a shooting every single time, maybe the fact that there's been tragedies back to back recently will actually have the side effect of not allowing them to bury that debate for once. Because, as someone living just fine in a country without guns, it's hilariously stupid how easily the politicians over there get to ignore it given the scale and frequency of this sort of shit.
FuSoYa got a site warning for the Quebec thing as you might expect anyone would for that.
Just because you don't see things doesn't mean they're not happening!
However, now that I went and addressed all that, as you've been told multiple times before, if you've got an issue with staff then send a staff feedback instead of waiting for the next big drama thread and hijacking that, regardless of how relevant it is. If you actually want a response then the staff feedback page even says to leave your name, since the admins won't know who sent it otherwise. This doesn't mean they go unnoticed if you don't do that, but you seem to have a knack for assuming that nothing happened if you don't personally see that it did, even if told otherwise, so leaving your name to be told immediately if something is done should be helpful.
ALL THAT BEING SAID, keep this thread on topic. This thread isn't "continue the original thread as if nothing happened", this thread is what the title says. If you want to respond to my post further, just send me a PM so we don't keep going in this thread forever.
