> it's not good to have people that lack the restraint to control their conduct
While true, they're going to come here anyway and still post their shit regardless. With a containment thread Bell has a legit reason to delete political posts derailing a thread by citing containment. Nobody sane and worth dealing with is going to accuse of "partisan mods".
>I think it was done before and they end up breaking containment anyway
Because moderation threw up their hands and decided 'fuck-it' let them do anything they want... and PPH crashed like a MoFo way before August of 2019
>The board still has people with diverse political views without that containment, but it's those that know how to be tame with them.
Considering how hard they have derailed 5 threads since I've been here... they clearly have no sense of self-moderation, the old Meta thread is just a recent example. At least 2 e621 threads were derailed into whining about commies and fascists and that one fag who keeps spamming about climate conspiracies.
>been in one, seen them all
True, but who said you or I have to contribute... Its essentially a piranha tank, where we can redirect any political drivel and laugh at any whining
>Political OCs only on social media
From personal experience I'd have to disagree. As political shitflinging escalates, the angrier posters start making their own OCs to keep up with meme demand as they run out of previously made ones.
>increase PPH to allow containment, but they're not the type of posts that are valuable since it's recycled
That's the point. Political shitposts are usually worthless opinion rants, interspersed with the occasional hot take and based debunk, it isn't worth keeping, but since its already going to happen, might as well milk it for what its worth.
More Posts = More PPH = More Exposure on the Front Page = More Traffic = More Public Exposure.
