If you want to help make the internet a better place start by disabling the comments.

s/moderating/disabling

Spaces that actually say "we have standards, we will not let you do some things" have the potential to make people wonder if maybe posting some things is really a thing they should be doing with their life.

I mean they'll probably still just go do it on 17chan but at least they'll know it's not considered fine for polite company.

@Laurelai
PixelFed joined PeerTube this week in implementing a "commentsEnabled" attribute. When set false, compliant applications should disable the reply button in the UI and the server should respond to replies with Reject rather than threading the reply

@Laurelai I wonder what dullard computer programmer first got the idea. "hey I know a really easy pointless feature I can add to this website, I'll let people leave comments. it'll be like a day of work and they'll give me a raise. I see no future problems with this idea whatever"

@chara @Laurelai Sadly business people think that letting random people comment on stuff is informative and a valuable way to gauge customer sentiment

@SelfsameSynonym @Laurelai it's gotten really dystopic. like, Kara had a clerk at a storage place some weeks back tell hir to remember to leave a favorable comment with her name on a Google Maps review because it was used to gauge whether someone should keep their job
