We might be able to capitalize on this somehow to move users to the fediverse?

Hi mods,

This afternoon we will be releasing a couple of improvements to Automoderator.

First, there is now a verified email attribute available. This means that you can check if the redditor submitting content to your community has a verified email associated with their account. Think of it as an automated way of looking at their trophy case to see if they have the “Verified Email” trophy.

Mods use account age & karma restrictions in an effort to stop low effort participation but these often catch out well intentioned redditors. We hope that by exposing if a redditor has a verified email to automod you’ll be able to remove some of these karma restrictions and have a more effective way at identifying bad-intentioned redditors.

/r/Linux has an official policy of removing and scrubbing comments from non-verified accounts and threatens users with possible “action” if they keep commenting without verifying their email.

The threatening message the automod sends now told me to switch to Lemmy if i don’t like it, so I did.

I can totally understand how not requiring email verification enables harrassment etc, it’s just odd because reddit has literally always been carefully structured to enable and promote harrassment. It’s why their user block feature stops you from seeing content by users you’ve blocked, but it doesn’t stop them from seeing and interacting with you.

I started using non-verified accounts on reddit precisely because of how inherently unsafe the platform is by design.
