I saw that the newly created community “askawoman” was deleted due to being a “troll community”, with reason being https://lemmy.ml/post/486254.

I never had the chance to visit lemmy.ml/c/askawoman, but see nothing in the provided link that indicates that it’s a troll community.

Could the administration please clarify what made you decide it had to be removed so I can make sure I don’t do the same and get my own communities blocked from federation?


Two rules, 1 and 2, specfically Misogyny and Trolling, and it was reported for such.

The same person who posted Do you think men are becoming more beta nowadays?, and why don’t you expletive fat girls??? created an askawoman community. Use another server to make blatantly misogynist troll communities.

Also, the corset in the community pic. Dead giveaway. No one who respects women and want to engage in informative discussions with them is using that as the icon, as their first choice, for their community.


I kind of liked that “beta” question, if only because it gave the opportunity to call out the whole notion as bullshit. The other one, though, that had zero redeeming qualities. Well, that and I’m gay so it doesn’t even apply.

I just want to say that, as myself having been Lemmy’s silent watchdog, I am happy to see you stand up to all this stuff before it (amongst the ongoing admin ruckus) starts spiralling out of hand. I have experience with the chans and darknet underbellies of the internet, so I can lend advice from my experience whenever needed. (I do not care about any mod or admin powers.)

I want to see this thing grow.

So the community is banned not for the posts or moderation in it, but for posts made by the moderator in other communities? I think that’s unfortunate.

I can understand misogyny, but can you please clarify how it is trolling?

As I learned quickly from /c/IsTaiwanACountry, Lemmy.ml isn’t here to create definitive lines and watch people walk up to them. They copy this policy on trolling, which sums it up to “Don’t piss us off” or “Don’t make us waste time moderating”.

Is it fair? No, but that’s not the point of this instance.

“Wether it dating, sex, relationships or what we think about men farting all the time, we’ll tell you what’s REALLY on our minds, and no, we’re not ‘fine’ come join and start the discussion!” – are you kidding me or are you also trolling?

Everything about Lemmy; bugs, gripes, praises, and advocacy.
