adolf512, you're not using cult leader methods here

The proper cult leader method is to warn people, "What you're saying deviates from Vintologi" and then if they try to argue, remove their arguments and say, "If you have something you want to ask about, you can do that in private."

This way, people actually have a reason to learn Vintologi, because they need to stay within the rules; and what they end up doing is trying to craft their posts in such a way as to cater to Vintological sentiments/goals. Kind of like how when Christians want to pursue some agenda, they'll try to fit in within the limitations imposed by their religion and also make it sound like it's in pursuit of Christian ideals. E.g. "buy into this charity because this supplements important mission work overseas. It's a ministry."

If you allow open argumentation without demanding people adhere to Vintologi, then people may piecemeal get a sense of where you stand on various issues but may never grasp how it all comes together. Then again, there's a lot of obscure theology in Christianity that hardly anyone has heard of (e.g. predestination and election).

Something i noticed building the r/transmaxxing sub is that people you disagree with are actually more likely to invade the space if there is less free speech.

Your method do however require that people wanna post on the space in the first place. My focus now will be to fix some issues with vintologi and later i am going to spend time trying to get more active users here.

Yeah, I mean, you have to have something to offer. Incels.co is somewhat of a cult of the whitepill, although they tolerate blackpilled thinking, under the theory of, "The blackpill leads you to the larger truth, which is the whitepill." So they view it as a good thing that guys talk a lot of blackpilled stuff, because a certain % of those will end up at the whitepill.

But anyway, the only reason people put up with the mods' nonsense there is that it's where 100-200 incel or incel-adjacent people hang out every day, and it's hard to find that anywhere else. But a lot of people get banned so don't have the option of hanging out there anymore.
