Appreciate the help, but according to that list I can’t ask it.

You could try Hellhole, but mods aren't obligated to respond to users there:

Sadly, there are mods here who should be fired, maybe even the admin too. The whole "report" and TOS thing has become not only stupid but probably bias. I've seen and reported posters who actually taunt and even go as far as post sexual abuse related attacks on somebody. But their posts don't get modded, however the person they are attacking gets modded/suspended regardless of the post not breaking the TOS.

Sad thing is you can't contact anybody to clear this up. So it's either there are mods here who just have friends that they side with or aren't doing their actual jobs and looking into the situation properly, another reason could be being incapable of understanding what is breaking the TOS and what isn't.

First off there is no bias. If you report something and it's a violation then it gets moderated, either by a notify without delete which just informs the user they violated a rule but their post is not deleted or the post is deleted. The moderation staff is made up of over 80 mods now so none of us have the time to or need to go around and pretend to be "friends" with any users you or anyone else may dislike. That accusation gets used a lot and I can assure you no moderator is playing buddy buddy with any particular users. We don't know who everyone is on these boards and will likely never encounter many of the users who get reported. Most of the time it's the users on the board that you see on a daily basis who may go out of their way to report certain users more than others.

Once you report a post it goes into the moderation queue and it gets reviewed by a moderator. However, not every report can be reviewed immediately so while one post may be deleted sooner than another, that doesn't mean one post was more serious of a violation to review and handle over the other, it's just that the other one was not reviewed at the same time. Please don't just assume the moderation staff is just letting users post sexually explicit content and get away with it or anything else that would be a violation or that we're not capable of understanding the rules all together. If something obviously is a violation then it will be dealt with, other posts may require more time to look into the situation and that's why we rely on user notes to inform us that we may need to look into the topic as well to see more context if needed.

Also just because other users post violations does not mean anyone else needs to as well, especially in cases where someone gets moderated while the other person who did something more egregious was not moderated. This goes back to my earlier point that not every report is reviewed instantly. As long as you report any users that you feel are posting violations then you should not have to worry anymore about whether or not they'll get moderated since they will if it is a violation. Unfortunately it may not happen as quickly as you'd hope but now that we have added some new moderators it should not take too long for reports to be reviewed and handled accordingly.
You can observe a lot just by watching.
