    By trying to keep the discussion too “nice” you actually killed discussion, it became boring and anyone who would have actually given interesting content or discussion left.

    HN is extremely shadowban happy but their mods are excellent at telling who is a troll or spam and who are people just having a debate or disagreeing.

    You basically just had an mod team who don’t understand what makes an online community good. Spoiler alert, twitter and reddit are not popular and self sustaining because everyone joins hands and sings kumbaya, Reddit likes to pretend to their investors that people are there for AMAs and cat pics but it just isn’t true.
