Today we’re pinning this old post to the front page. Its an exchange between one of the /r/newzealand moderators and E2NZ admin that took place in April 2016. Please read the comments section to get the rest of the conversation with /u/TeHokioi
Recently we’ve been getting heaps of back links to defamatory posts on /r/newzealand, and daily abusive comments from one of the people mentioned in this conversation. We’re leaving it here as a reminder of how challenging some people find it the site and how they do their best to undermine it.
This is the opening of our dialogue with one of the moderators of /r/New Zealand. Scroll down to the comments section to read the discussion.
“Hello TeHokioi. Not sure what you want to talk about but you’re welcome here and we’re happy to have this dialogue with you.
The people involved with the running of E2NZ.org would like to see /r/newzealand stop its harassment and trolling of this site.
Furthermore, we’d like the /r/newzealand moderators to make a public apology for facilitating and encouraging that harassment over the years.
It’s probably hoping for too much to ask /u/SIS-NZ, /u/dead-rooster et al to mea culpa too. At the very least, and as a sign of your good faith, we’d expect them the curb their attacks. You have a delete button that is seriously under-used.
Please bear in mind that many people who use /r/newzealand also use E2NZ.org. /u/nilnz often posts material that could’ve been taken straight out of this site, we clearly have areas of common ground.
Preventing the constant harassment, bullying and drama from the likes of SIS-NZ and co. will help to make your sub a better place for everyone who uses it, and will reduce the amount of time and effort you put into modding it. You probably have much better things you could be doing with your time.
Let me know your thoughts, Admin.”
