Why did the mods never enforce this rule?
Could a mod start banning a bunch of racist posts if they wanted to?
That is why /n/, /new/ and now /pol/ exist. Try posting a thread about how niggers are inferior on any board other than /r9k/ or /b/ and you will get banned. We are ultimately a containment board.
Yeah because other boards actually have subjects, if you go to /v/ and make that post of course you'll be banned
However the rule isn't really enforced that much, if you enter a thread and post something racist you probably won't be banned unless you're doing it for no reason of trying to derail.
I see it all the time on other boards tbh fam
