    We can agree to disagree, but I see these 2 as vastly tonally different. One is neutral, as should be, while the other is not. At least I see them different.

    At the end of the day, I seem to be the only one seeing a lack of tonal impartiality, or the only one thinking that's an issue. In light of that, feel free to close this thread tbh. It's been discussed and an overwhelming disagreement has been voiced on this.

    I will say though, that I changed my mind on labels being a problem since they represent the issue (not "bigotry" though, as that's vague). But tonal neutrality is something I'd hope to see though.

    #146 is where it first gets questionable for me.
    But from there on out, putting labels next to people's names seem to have become the norm: #148, #157, #180, #185, #195, #200,
    Now, they might be correct, idk, but such labels weren't needed before? In my mind, they bring nothing but negativity.

    If labels are necessary, I want to implore to at least consider not using malign sounding adjectives such as "blatant" or "open", and to replace the seemingly now common label "bigotry" with the specific type of it in question.

    Rejected Labelization

    I want to recommend the moderation team to try better in not labeling people in moderation log. There's no need for that as cases can be easily rephrased in a way that is not potentially upsetting or openly toxic - the very things you're trying to avoid. You don't know how it affects people, so just take the safe route.

    Thankfully it's not common though.

    Thats not even standard. Everything is standard, hence none is + waterfalls are good.

    In your previous comment, you seemed to only focus on me as being Town and concerned only about evidence that I'd make. Hence why it felt wolfy mindset.

    Only things you've done is trying to undermine other's comments, as to diminish reactions that could have been gotten out of them, and hype up yourself.

    Tbh, this article is biased in favor of analysis posts.

    For example, consider a hypothetical extreme (unrealistic) scenario where everyone's just vibing but everyone's got 100+ interactions with every slot in the game. I guarantee you that if you had 100+ interactions with every slot in the game, you'd have a very good idea to where to put your vote and would have a good PoE.

    From the readers and other players POV though, they'd be forced to read through a lot of posts that are useless for them + they'd easily miss important posts. It's all pros&cons.

    ```Lol yeah it's very dumb lyrics for a classic country vibe ^^ I don't really like the song or the lyrics though, but the contrast sure is there! ```

    ```Well this was very silly! Not my genre but lol I giggled a little at the lyrics and especially since I think the band is quite serious in general? luls "Some girls mothers are bigger than other girls mothers" is just a fantastic line ```
    There's just something special about these songs, can't really put my head around what it is.

    Love is an interesting topic. In my school...

    Love is an interesting topic.
    In my school years, there was this teacher who each year asked the first year students 1 simple question - "What is Love?"

    Those who could give an answer, their answers were generally limited to "feeling attracted to someone" or some form of it.

    Crazy to think that most people, at an almost adult age, wouldn't know what love is. I remember wanting to test that and so I went to the magical realm of the interwebs to see how people would describe love. I was met with mental gymnastics like "there's different kinds of Love" whence asked if they're attracted to their grandparents or pets.

    Though I still wonder how closely connected are love and wanting to be together. I guess to a limited amount because otherwise society would've evolved such that multiple generations are living together?

    The teacher herself was searching for the answer to her question, and more importantly - how to describe it -, for a large portion of her life. Until a priest gave her an answer.

    That priest was of the opinion that love is best described and explained through giving an example. His example was a mother denying her kid sweets and giving them instead some, arguably healthy, soup that they don't want to eat. Explaining that what the mother did was good for the kid and bad for her, due to it being healthy for the kid but the kid is angry towards her. It was selfless, hence it was Love.

    I think that's too complicated. I think it's simple enough to just point out that every living being, even a single cell organism, is selfish. Everything every living being does is ultimately just for themselves; with the exception of love and hate. Those 2 are the only ways a living organism can willingly do something that is bad for themselves, though for opposite reasons.

    This begs the question though. If I donate money to my local animal shelter - do I do it out of love or to feel better about myself?
    And is it possible for someone to actually love most or all people?
