Good one but, Seun i think you should clearly states the kind of words that categorize as slur.

for example, if i call a person zombidiot, does it categorize as slur?

Yeah, most hardworking in tribalism and segregation.

That's not true, you are just biased in your judgement. If you cleverly follow Nairaland rules you'll hardly get banned. It's the reason I hardly get banned and I don't look for trouble as well.

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.

If you can display the details of the individuals, like their email addresses and their IP devices, we can help you in tracking them to their residence.

That way, we can shame them properly.
That would be violating their privacy, which may have its legal implications....he should just rid them of constituting nuisance on his platform... The good thing is this....people that propel ethinic slurs desire to be seen and heard.....lots of them are miserable when they are not seen/heard, so they will stop

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!

You are against cyber bullying but your signature has swords, guns, and all weapons of sorts.

You want to shoot without being shot at?

He who comes to equity must come with clean hands.

Start by cleaning up your signature.

Kudos Seun. Now we can have sensible conversations on here without people insulting where our great grandfathers decided to settle.

Why ban them when they can always create new accounts. Just make it mandatory to link your NIN or BVN to your nairaland account. With that you can easily curb scam and catch people that use hate and tribal speeches. Simple

Let your administrative be neutral.
Let there be peace on nairaland.
Let users displays their full information, most users who make ethnics comments don't have much information on their profile
Make it mandatory for information to be complete
Some one will.just open account just to insults others.

Thank you so.much.
