Got to wonder if you’d be this lenient with someone denying the holocaust, too?
Barely even a slap on the wrist (“no-go”? Seriously?), not even removed the blatant genocide denial.
So is it that you don’t think any genocide denial is really that big a deal and not even worth removing, or is just the deniers of the genocide being perpetrated by the state you ignorantly support, that you’re happy to turn a blind eye to and continue platforming?
At least have some fucking integrity and don’t pretend to care when you clearly don’t, but this reaction? Is genuinely pathetic.
Fuck, I really wish you tankie bootlickers would stop falsely claiming communism and defending genocide and other atrocities committed in its name by authoritarian dictators (also falsely claiming it, to gain the support of wilfully ignorant enablers like yourself), you’re really are fucking it up for those of us who actually want to be free.
Fair enough, my bad on that, but you’re still allowing them a platform when they’re clearly spreading pro genocide-committing CCP propaganda.
If this was an article whining that Anti-American Rhetoric Is Off the Charts in Chinese Media, and op was in the comments defending the war in Afghanistan, or immigrant children in cages and women forcibly sterilised, I don’t doubt it would have been removed in a flash, and rightfully so. China and America are both oppressive and destructive capitalist superpowers smearing each other to keep us distracted from the handful in each country hoarding all of the resources. The existence of competing propaganda really isn’t news.
Bottom line is by not banning op or at least removing this post you’re still enabling and even showing support to a literal genocide denier, they’re not even trying to hide it. You can’t tout yourselves as a platform for socialism and equality while allowing people like OP the space to promote the exact opposite.

then you’re assuming incorrectly–we give people some latitude to have dumb, incorrect takes that people disagree with or aren’t popular here, and having one of those takes is not unto itself a bannable offense. this is especially and frequently true if it receives a lot of pushback because it provides a record of where the community stands and what the community finds acceptable, which is socially useful information for observers. this is outlined quite extensively in our moderator philosophy and has been pretty much since we took off. in any case, the idea that everything anyone posts here is tacitly endorsed by having been posted and not removed is a goofy standard for any social media website.
X for doubt (especially since I’ve seen what kind of content does gets instantly removed/banned around here, and this is definitely not op’s first “mistake”) E: though if you are being serious about allowing such content, it only makes your stance worse - I thought this instance was meant to be a safe space, but I guess the people impacted by these violent and oppressive acts don’t deserve protection if it goes against the, what, equal opportunity genocide denier platform? As a grandchild of holocaust survivors, this is a huge blaring warning alarm telling me to stay away (which I will, don’t worry).
Either way, all you’ve shown here is that you find CCP propaganda acceptable to the point of defending its existence in your space, and while you might not be comfortable admitting it, that’s you picking a side.
