Here is the biggest source of bullying in the entire Dash ecosystem: https://www.reddit.com/user/Basilpop
This toxic jerk perpetually ignores the "Be Nice" instructions from DashForceCore and instead takes sadistic pleasure in bullying newcomers to the Dash sub.
Perfect example of how a tiny little Banhammer is too much power for some people and turns them into monsters. Basilpop's rabid junkyard dog style of thin-skinned moderation makes Dash look terrible.
Ah yes, Basilpop. He does have a rather "Get off my yard." management style. I think he is making a substantial effort to improve. I haven't done any statistical analysis, but I would think the vast majority of his caustic remarks are not directed at newbies, but at people who have already broken the rules on the DashPay subreddit. He has also added a number of other moderators to add more balance and perspective. Your concern for the Dash community is noted and appreciated.
If that is your worst case scenario, I would think we compare rather favorably to other crypto forums.
So, I take it from your post that you would fully support the idea of, "Be nice.", no bullying (ad hominem attacks), respectful discourse should be the rule, not the exception?
