I dislike how to post on like the majority of big subreddit, you have to have X karma, Y account age etc, and those things seem to be enforced by automod. A really good feature of lemmy for me is there being no automod!
It can prevent a lot of spam and help mods with workload.
Honestly I think making a post on the TL should be locked until you make 1 or 2 comments, nothing huge. That alone would be enough to stop bots who tend to just be one-shots.
I’ve moderated a couple ~100k subscriber subreddits, and automod was a godsend. The karma and age requirement specifically has drastically reduced the ability for people to spam subreddits and circumvent bans. It’s annoying as an earnest new user, no doubt, but it makes focusing on more important things much easier, making the sub better for everyone using it
I fucking hate to have a post deleted on Reddit because of some stupid formating rule they have.
Or how /r/askreddit banned the usage of OP text box.
automod is one of the best ways to prevent right-wingers from using your platform, even requiring you to include “trans rights are human rights” can filter 99% of rightoids

I disagree. If the rules are enforced by an automod, they’re less biased than a human
in particular, it would be nice if automod was publically visable. On old.reddit posts are shadow removed and it’s not possible to see how much karma is needed
