It actually does make it easier. You can cut a weed and let it grow, or you can pull a weed by the roots. Some will see this as an act of laziness, and, well it is; it's also efficient
I have sat down time and time again to consider the options I have. The best options are these:
1. allow pedo content.
2. don't allow pedo content
In both situations a volunteer will be required, either to delete the pedo content, or to sift through it for anything that is illegal.
In option 1 there are sub-options.
I could cycle a single thread so that anons could hide it for good. However this means that illegal content could be posted, shared, and covered up by simply posting in the thread continuously. There would be a need for a volunteer during every part of the day to monitor this content.
I could let them post regularly without a cyclical thread, however, this clutters the catalog due to the thread being one that is posted over and over again. It would also be more tedious to moderate due to being all over the place.
Nobody wants to sit on their ass in a thread waiting for something illegal to show up. Most mods will go about their business browsing the imageboard as usual, only deleting something when they see it. Even I don't see everything posted here, and I certainly don't go looking for content. I remove it if I see it. That's why the report function exists.
Hire someone who would site in the thread and monitor it 24/7 (AKA a pedo)
This is by far the most stupid idea and would definitely be exploited.
In option 2, it's pretty simple.
Content is removed on site, regardless of legality. This makes it easier to moderate because there doesn't need to be a level of judgement based on how suggestive the content is. A volunteer wouldn't have to sift through posts determining which one stays and which one goes. It reduces the possibility that something illegal would show up when nobody is around to remove it.
No matter which situation I look at, it seems like I am going to have to hire more moderators to do anything effectively. Which is really stupid considering the actual speed of this board.
And I'm damn right. Whether it's the actual community, or FBI trying to honeypot the pedos CP shows up. It has on every imageboard I've ever browsed that has come across this particular problem.
If you don't care about this place, leave. It's quite simple. Fighting with me isn't going to make me change my mind.
Actual cp posting has not been huge problem from what I've seen.
I became a mod because I would constantly badger the mods about not deleting any CP. They made me a mod and I learned that mod.php was so broken that it hardly worked without crashing the site.
You can thank Ron for making botmod which deletes CP bots, and you can thank You can thank Ron & Jim for actually making mod.php work again so that mods can delete CP.
