I see lots of deletions in the logs on /polru/, and I mean a LOT
. We can't do much about trolls. I understand that the userbase do not like to read specific opinions, but accepting the existence of some could cut back on the need of moderation work.
Partially we can't do much because of technical constraints of the imageboard's engine. Here I have to ask how would you guys implement the suggested features? The source code of InfinityNow is available, check bottom of the home page.
In other part it's an arms race, trolls adapt to new tools, and will continue on, which leads to placing in more restrictions, which will be again and again avoided. So all the work is pointless.
Imageboards weren't designed to be restrictive anyway.>Or better: replace to something like glory to ukraine and putin suck cocks.
a wordfilter feature that changes the text.
I would also suggest to create your own tools. If you want to automate detection of unwanted posts it can be done in different ways, liek Greasemonkey, python, or even bash scripts. Deletion can be automated too, problem is with false positives (like someone quotes an unwanted post). Liek a Greasemonkey scipt that runs when you open a thread and click a custom button added and do whatever it does could be a hueg moderation help. But be careful with automation please so you won't DoS our site with flood of billion requests per second accidentally or some such.
