Board policy states no personal insults, period. That takes some getting used to, and I got some infractions for it, being I was used to more of a free-for-all thing.

The upside to that? Banning insults removes about half of conservative trolling. They've still got their conspiracy theories, but their raging is greatly reduced if they can't go off on insult tirades.

The downside? They go sort of passive-aggressive on you. Instead of saying "You're a child molester!", which is not permitted, they'll say "Libtards are all child molesters", which gets around the no-insult rule, being it doesn't insult a specific person. So you do the same thing back, all sides dancing around the no-insult rule.

Same as every board, it has more than its share of right-wing conspiracy theorists who want to tell us all about their own special bizarre universe. I think the mods are a bit too hands off there, being they should move most of it to conspiracy theory folders. However, at least you don't get banned here for the crime of destroying nutty right-wing conspiracy theories, which puts this board way, way above USMB. And that's all we liberals really need, to not be censored.

If you're a Stormfront reject and/or Trump voter, you'll love USMB. You'll be allowed to threaten to kill all liberals. The more openly racist you are, the more applause you'll get from your fellow conservatives there .You'll be allowed to break board rules with impunity, being how rules are only for liberals. You'll be allowed to troll the board with every new FOX/Breitbart/Trump/Stormfront/AlexJones conspiracy theory, secure in the knowledge that anyone who debunks your cult nonsense will be banned.

Every liberal/moderate/merelymoderatelyrightwinger on USMB tells the same story. None of them have ever had any trouble on any other board, but as soon as they showed up at USMB, it's all censorship, mod harassment and banning. Mod Westwall, who got his mod position by donating/bribing the board admins with some seriously big bucks, is especially fierce in his Stalinist devotion. Wanting to get his money's worth, he spends his days looking for any possible excuses to censor and ban the mean ol' liberals who dare laugh at his cult conspiracy theories.

I suppose that's why USMB is cratering in the Alexa rankings compared to other political message boards. Conservative/Stalinist echo chambers don't have much appeal.

USMB is good for is for few things. You can go in and easily make the very delicate Trump-snowflakes cry for a little while, until they go whining to the mods to have you banned. And it's a good illustration of how creeping Stalinism has overwhelmed American conservatism.

“Excellent post. You are correct, I was the subject of profanity-laced tirades by racist Repug trolls every day, but they never get banned. However, I was routinely singled-out by the moderators because I'm a liberal.”
