Quoted from pin2d:
Interview with Robin, Founder of Pinside, regarding Pinside's Approach to Moderation
What is Pinside’s overall approach to moderation of its members?
There has been some criticism that Pinside “over-moderates” individuals that are critical of manufacturers. How do you respond to that?
Some are calling for less moderation and more promotion of free speech. Others are calling for bans of certain members, which can be seen as the ultimate moderation. How do you find a balance of more vs. less moderation?
Is the moderation team on Pinside trained? Are they paid or is it strictly a volunteer position?
What is the biggest challenge you face with running Pinside?
There was an announcement a while back of a possible “purge”, where some members may be banned for a period of time. Did that happen, or are there plans for that to happen in the future?
Are there any plans to allow current banned members back onto Pinside?
I had a pinsider threaten to come to my home in real life and hurt me. I posted to the mods twice. They didn't contact him, suspend him or even respond to me in any way. Guy still posts on here. That was 21 months ago.
