Better abeg. Someone can’t even read past two pages of a thread on the politics section without getting annoyed. So many abusive languages and slurs amongst one another. Made me detest that section.

I once invited a friend to experience the politics forum on this thread and all he could tell me was a lot of overgrown kids exists here and was so toxic. Deactivated the same day he opened an account. Do better, guys.

@Seun

Good day sir, please special attention should be paid to drug trafficking threads because they're the very root of tribal and ethnic slurs on Nairaland. Trolls like Leodeking and PoloG et. al have made it their life's ambition to source for news about Igbo drug traffickers and post them here with the view of ridiculing the Igbos on nairaland. I'm not Igbo but even I cannot stand the foolishness and hypocrisy.

DRUG TRAFFICKING THREADS SHOULD BE GIVEN SPECIAL ATTENTION.

We will. I'm going there right after this.

Seun please kindly look into the issues of cloned accounts,and shaming of women online with deterogatory tags slammed on them
This looks like something we really need to address. I assume that ground zero for this problem is the romance section.

People like you should be totally neutral and apolitical...
I can't pretend to be totally neutral; I can only try my best. The funny thing is that my bias is not in the direction that people think it is.

What of monikers with ethnic slurs. For example, a moniker like YorubasBastards , igboPig, why do u allow such monikers?
I think we will ban them permanently. The use of such monikers suggests they joined to break the rules. So we can't allow them to continue.

he literally ran an anti Igbo Ad against GRV during the elections, i wonder why after getting what they want, they want to claim sanity. even the weak apology on twitter was met by serious backlash.
don't be deceived, they know what they are doing.

IPOBian is a slur since IPOB is now considered to be a terrorist group. Don't use it please.

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. Its presence and the presence 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.

Seun, please how do I change my email on my profile? I need help. I am unable to open the present one for years now. Thank you for assisting.

If you truly know Christ like you claimed, you won't be seeking threads for Pagans and Idol worshippers. Give your life to Jesus Christ. Turn a new leaf and make him your all.

A life without Christ is a life of crises. Christ is ready to accept you back.
