Yesterday there was a conversation that contained several blatantly anti-vax comments. I had previously included in the community description a rule against anti-vax posts and comments, but I was not enforcing it well. I will be enforcing that rule going forward. I have also included a new rule against personal attacks. Please remember to report violations.
If anti-vaxxers wish to have a discussion, they are free to create their own community. This community is not a home for that sentiment.
Any news or discussion around the pandemic. Anti-vaccination posts and comments will be removed, as well as personal attacks.
I know that on Mastodon, they sometimes had paid community managers. I wonder if Lemmy perhaps gets to a point where that kind of capacity is needed, and/or if it’s getting the funding it needs in the meantime. That might allow for a moderating team that has the bandwidth to support communities as needed.
