New direction of the SRP?

Top SRP threads...

Socialism is a evil.
Freedom of speech
Freedom of speech of <insert racist/bigoted dropkick>.
More freedom of speech, Jordan Peterson style.
Political correctness...AKA freedom of speech.
Infowars...AKA freedom of speech
Tommy Yaxley...AKA freedom of speech.

Fast turning into Sky after dark.
I think it's because a lot of posters have given up on the main board. Part of the reason being there is so much crossover between topics. That's not a complaint btw, people have just gotten sick of the 'you're virtue signalling/triggered/what race is islam???' vortex.

A thread title claiming to be redacted yet including his legal and stage name neatly summarises how barren the 'no free speech' crowd is.

You'd have a leg to stand on if you weren't consistently shit-stirring and contributing to low quality discussion.

Start your own threads on whatever you feel is important.
Affirmative action for right wingers, they've been calling for it for ages and you've delivered it in spades. Bravo.

Contrary to what tweedle dee thinks, it wasn't a criticism. It was an observation. They've been championing "more right wing" on this board for ages. One less thing for them to whinge about.

But I think this is a case of other posters choosing to not wade into the shit that some threads become, rather than a policy.

You can try to be dismissive because you think I am saying something other than what I am actually saying, that's par for the course. Duplicity.
Did you achieve what you set out to achieve, as outlined in the OP?
That's not why I'm dismissive of you.

I think the overall quality of posting has been much higher since the board rules were re-written. We've seen off several posters who couldn't stick to them, even as simplified as they are. Mod intervention seems to be required with less frequency. Bans are happening with less frequency. Sometimes there are even a couple of days between reports now. From where I sit, the level of vitriol and thread derailing into personal shitfights has dropped off and the quality of discussion can actually reach decent levels. All this in spite of the continued existence of the odd poster who seemingly just wants to bait everyone they disagree with into a ban.

So yeah - things aren't tracking too badly. Feel free to contribute to this by starting engaging and thought-provoking threads, and likewise engaging in thoughtful and good-faith discussion regardless of who doesn't.

You can't be serious.
The level of discourse is terrible and getting worse.
