/u/magnora7 probably isn't the best person for the job, but I don't think either of the admins are doing a bad job. Horrible nasty comments are the exception here, not the norm, and yet somehow this has been accomplished without heavy-handed moderation.

I personally think /u/Magnora7 is one of the best people for the job – most admins are much more censorship-crazy, and /u/Magnora7 has also made enough comments that got banned to be able to understand the perspective of others with possibly-bannable comments too. /u/Magnora7 seems to have the exact same moderation philosophy as me, so I trust them a lot.

Oh, yeah; /u/magnora7 is great! But think of how many people in the world there are, some who have more experience and would do a better job. That's getting harder, though, as time goes on and /u/magnora7 improves.

No, I don't think the admins are doing a bad job and I don't mean to imply that. It's just that they are noticably less experienced, which should be expected. That's why the claim that Reddit admins are involved surprised me, although I guess controlled opposition is a thing too.

Oh, I see.

Yes, I agree. I'm almost tempted to make a Voat account and tell them why they're wrong… but every time I've done something like that before it's completely backfired. (Source: my entire comment history on Saidit.)

People don't like people running around telling them what they do wrong.

Especially when they don't even know why the people they're telling are wrong think that way in the first place.
