[personal profile] keeva Does linkspam need a new tagline?

Oh, I didn't say you should drop out. On the contrary, keep going.

But at least stop identifying the community as "anti-oppression" if the only person contributing to it is decidedly pro-oppression.

Keep doing what you're doing. I'm happy enough to read a collection of links from "the other side," (since you've decided to support the straight privilege); just change the tagline.

Should there be a rule that the linkspam collector(s) agree with whatever fandom consensus decrees the privilege-fighting side of a debate, or step down?

"Fandom consensus"? You're showing your privileges here again, cis-privileged person. And you probably don't even know it.

And yes:

As I recall, you had your chance, and bowed out because you thought people would assume you couldn't be unbiased.

I created the community, and recruited both you and [personal profile] naraht, and I even wrote the tagline in question.

And when I felt that my outspoken views would be a liability to the community (both in the LJ/DW sense of "community" and the greater whole of the anti-oppression fandom community), I did step down, lest I harm the good that could be done.

Nobody is asking you to step down, of course. Just change the tagline.

Er, I don't want to get into something that isn't my business, but... if the fear is that you're too biased to get all the links to both sides* (particularly the 'other' side), I'm pretty strongly (though I haven't been posting about it) in that other side, and I can, if coached a bit on how to actually go about it, collect links and dump them with you. Particularly if I could get one other person to take over Thursday, which is a day I can't be at the computer.

*I'm not saying you are. I don't know what prompted this.

No, I still don't want to run the community, nor want you to quit.

Do you always play the martyr so much?

Flounce if you like, if you're unable to handle minor criticism. It's your call. I've made my suggestion.

You haven't, that I've seen, justified your suggestion.

Seriously: Where are the links that [personal profile] elf isn't posting? Where are the editorial comments reinforcing one view over another? Where, IN THIS COMM, is [personal profile] elf acting to reinforce oppression?

Because unless there is some fashion in which that's actually happening, what this looks like, to someone (like me) who hasn't been following the argument and has no formed opinion, is that you're pretty much saying that linkspam can't be moderated by someone who disagrees with you even if that disagreement does not, in fact, affect their work as linkspam moderator, and what the hell.
