What would the Mods / Admins of DVD talk do if a post was made like this regarding Malia Obama or Chelsea Clinton?

They would probably say use the "Report Post" if you or someone had a problem with it.

B. Use the "Report the Post" feature as needed and with good intentions. This feature is found in the bottom left-hand corner of everyone else's posts. You're encouraged to use the feature if someone has clearly broken the rules/expectations so subforum moderators can at least take a look at it. Just like any member, moderators have different topics they are interested in and there is no guarantee that a moderator is reading/following any particular thread. Remember, using RTP to oppose opinions you don't like, especially if you don't even post in the subforum, isn't how RTP works. Trying to use the mod team to crack down on someone who's opinion you don't like or who is vocal about a particular topic that annoys is not going to gain much traction, especially if you lurk and don't actually post. If you want to be part of the reporting body, you should be part of the discussing body.

Thanks I guess for the replies, however neither was an answer to my question, so I will repeat it.

Malia Obama and Chelsea Clinton are not pundits on a daily network news and opinion program.

To borrow a line from Mike Ehrmantraut, she's in the game. She is not any more "off limits" than Tucker Carlson or Bill Maher.

So political people are "fair game", Chelsea Clinton one could argue has campaigned for at least one of her her parents so she would not be off limits and of course this would include our representatives, Speaker Pelosi and Senator Harris - even Justice Ginsburg.

My question still stands:
What would the Mods / Admins of DVD talk do if a post was made regarding them?

Did you use the RTP function? I’m not sure what you hope to accomplish with your continuous jabs at the moderation team here.

How is he "jabbing" them.

This is the FEEDBACK and SUPPORT forum?

Have you noticed his “clever” location?

Also, what is the point of acting like a .GIF posted outside of the Political Memes has suddenly gotten him so confused about where memes belong that he hasn’t posted any in the Political Memes thread?

Re: Reply to a post about Meagan McCain in the political forum

That "clever" reference is about going to protests, funerals and visiting a hair salon but please do go on.

I will await for an answer to my question and / or clarification.

Did you report the post? It’s not a hard question to answer.

I see you ignored the part about how you went to war over story posting an animated GIF outside of the Political Memes thread, and keep referencing it...

Re: Reply to a post about Meagan McCain in the political forum

The post in question was in fact reported for being "misogynistic". I can't speak for the other mods, but I took no action because (unfortunately) the comment fit in with other metaphors, usually about men, about having someone else's dick in their mouth. It's crude and doesn't advance the conversation, but McCain is a public figure, and not a forum member.

As a side note, if you have a problem with a post, the best thing to do is to report it. And if you have a problem with moderator actions, this is the place to discuss them. But asking ridiculous hypothetical questions isn't the way to do that.

He just wanted to “speak to the manager” of DVDTalk.

Re: Reply to a post about Meagan McCain in the political forum

Closing thread. Please keep in mind a couple of things:
1. The "Report Post" button is there for a reason.
2. The mods are not all-seeing, so they can miss posts people may find problematic. They also aren't online constantly, so it can take a few hours, even if a post is brought to their attention.
3. If you feel really strongly about a post being racist/misogynistic/homophobic/transphobic/etc. You can always send a PM.

Making bad faith arguments and hypotheticals isn't conducive to moderation or accomplishing a goal. Also be sure when you have an issue with a particular thing (thread, post, bug) to provide a link to where it is occurring.
