Uhm I'm not really comfortable saying much but I do know when a year long ban is imposed on someone who then creates another account to get around their punishment and get caught doing that I can't see how they should be rewarded by getting their original account back and the year long ban removed.


Just to make it clear, the length of the ban was somewhat arbitrary and it was very unlikely from the beginning that things would have played out in such a way as to keep it in place for that long. Furthermore, it was not imposed as a "punishment." Bans on CR are rarely imposed with the primary intent of punishing someone; they are intended as a way to keep users on cooldown or timeout out of the way of other users. Most bans are imposed for only a few days, since most users get to understand the expectations for behavior on the site, or they leave the site. Imposing a ban is also a way we have to keep inappropriate content out of sight while an issue is being resolved. In this case it was only the intent to keep the ban in place long enough for the problem to be corrected and for a conversation to happen between the moderator and the user.

You may personally wish for harsher treatment, and that's your prerogative, but I think you should understand that you see only the surface of what's going on. You don't know the full intention of moderator actions and you don't know what's going on behind the scenes by way of communication between a mod and a user to get problems resolved.

That's all true but I do know a lot from my little sister who left here permanently after moderators repeated failures and lack of doing anything. I can only hope you all get better for other users sakes in the future.

Anyway there is too many people to keep track of or handle/know/see whats actually going on (sometimes).

As I have seen many people having their own sections doing their... own thing... and would you rather let them have it or go into it and say "stop it right now!!!!", they spread and now you got a more issue of it being all over the place insted (either getting a bot, more mods but thats unwise as most groupes know like in forums about how things can go, and well...one can't have everything "clean" on the internet but sections of it.. sure)

Odd, trolls exist in every environment on the Internet! Keeping it clear and free of anything offensive is a job I am sure the site takes seriously but hackers exist and many sites just can not keep up. I have not seen anything containing nudity on CRs forums to date and have been a active poster and member for a long while. I think the site is doing well since I know hentai exists with a simple google search and even with the filter set to moderate will still get images much worse than I have ever seen in CR FORUMS.

I have seen it often, but mostly not that bad, the gore however is worse at places (forum sections where there is the "common people, with their content")

I have gotten worse resualts on filtered mode then I have gotten without it... ughh..
Most filters are a laugh and why most people don't use it or for having bots on sites like this (mostly about images or some context of things and the punishment)

Censoring isn't ubiquitous across the entire internet. If you want to avoid that kind of content you're responsible for avoiding it not sites or other users.


13 year olds can make accounts here


Point being? The mods do what they can, maybe not enough in your opinion, but it's not their job to supervise your 13 year old. Any 13 year old with unfettered access to Crunchyroll also has unfettered access to myriad adult sites across the Internet and you're fooling yourself if you think they haven't explored the limits of that access. If you have a problem with content then you need to lock it down or better supervise your kid's Internet time.

Don't forget you can also set Chrome (and probably other browsers) to simply not load images.....
