This is long overdue Seun. Finally some form of sanity, you can’t comment on here without the use of nasty words. Thank goodness.

Words don't translate to actions. This is more like damage control to save face after the deed has been done already. I'm holding him by actions, not words

Very wonderful development.

Raumdeuter, come and see oo.
You will no longer be tolerated for those hateful words towards Igbos.

Nice development Seun. This platform will see a beginning of sanity and healthy discourse. This is long overdue.

We're watching myndfourfour who has enabled these people to see how they react to this development.

Good move Seun but I wonder if this is not coming too late. Nairaland has wide readership and followership and moulds opinions. Things shouldn't have been allowed to degenerate to this level. That said, better late than never. You will keep DSS and other security agencies at bay too. Best of luck!!

Seun, can you make a list of words that are prohibited so that our freedom of speech is not ridiculed in the guise of fighting tribalism.

Make a comprehensive list or a comprehensive definition of what tribal slurs are. Define tribal slurs and what can pass as tribal slurs if there's no list. Thanks.

" Tribe of the fallen demon" has been used to insult people here. It's a phrase not even a word.

SAY NO TO TRIBALISM OR CYBER BULLYING. I STAND AGAINST BOTH VICES AND CONDEMN THEM AS A GOOD NAIRALAND MEMBER!
Keep ya mouth shut, mischievous fellow looking for a way to beat the system.

Seun:
Fellow Nairalanders,

We have noticed the use of ethnic slurs and other derogatory names by a small but persistent group of political actors and trolls.

This practice of derogatory name-calling adds no value to the forum. It's bad for our mental health, our harmony as a community, and the reputation of Nairaland. It's simply toxic. It's absence and the absence of the people who use those slurs will not be missed.

Therefore I have decided to ban the practice entirely. I have instructed dominique, mukina2, Lalasticlala and Mynd44 to ban anyone who uses an ethnic slur or derogatory name on Nairaland. The antispam bot will also contribute to the effort. Please report any case that you see.

Banning dem no go wek, just start reporting them to DSS if u wan make dis platform make sense.

Seun get rid of that ethnic champion of a mod who bans some people but allow others to use ethnic slurs. I've seen people use ethnic slurs on me but since I can't engage in such lows, I report them, only to see them trolling me and others right after.

A Mod like Mynd44 is emotionally biased, and not capable of cleansing NL of ethnic tribal bigotry, because his record shows that he is part of the problem.

Seriously, I was even considering creating an "End Nairaland" campaign on Change because with the way tribalism is going here, it looks as if Seun is the man behind it.
