Rant about cons is a LiveJournal community for discussion of stupid people in political communities. Membership in this community is currently moderated. Despite the name, the group occasionally discusses liberals as well as conservatives. They adore belt0033, and such feelings are requisite to join. Trolled by justgoto - but what isn't?
This community is moderated by a clique of the most histrionic, knee-jerk whiners on LiveJournal. It's a place to make even the most bleeding-heart liberal begin to hate his or her own kind.
RAC is moderated by dancingdrew, kamuela, uncut_diamond, poloemily, imaybeparanoidcacahuate, and lancerboi who all told make up the cabal-within-a-cabal that is the RAC staff. In addition, RAC sometimes takes suggestions from paigegirl, a founding member. Colintj is there too. Eh.
How PoloEmily Fucked Up
One day, badlydrawnjeff decided he was going to join RAC. They accepted his request, but he couldn't actually view the community. Luckily, he was able to open his friends page and see a classic mod alert:
Recently we have had an influx of membership requests from obvious "enemies".
I suggest mods do the following: When a request to join a moderated community is approved or denied, the requestee recieves an a-mail notification. They do not, however, recieve such a notification if they are removed from the community. So, approve request, tehn immediately remove them. they get the e-mail, get a moment of glee thinking they got in, and then...DENIED. It's like getting your country club membership in the mail but the doorman can't find your name. It's beautiful.
(Wait...was I being to OMG conservative evil corporate elitist with that metaphor?)
