Lately controversial material is being managed better, with moderators stepping in early.

But from the early days of HSE there has been some really hurtful material (to some Hindus) posted, unsupported by scripture.

I'd like to challenge these one-by-one and ask moderators to remove them if unsupported by scripture.

Their presence severely takes away from the quality of the site.

And also, scripturally supported but controversial material needs a label, like Twitter uses "this material could be hurtful to some viewers"

  • Add link of those answers as well in question body. That way it'll be easy to navigate to such answers. – TheLittleNaruto Mod Mar 25 at 13:48
  • Thanks @thelittlenaruto. I was thinking challenging them one by one (there might be counter-responses). At least some posts are so outrageous that challenges to them need to stand by themselves. – S K Mar 25 at 13:53
  • Uhm? if the answers are unsupported by scripture and hurtful to Hindus, I think should be fine to add them in question body. – TheLittleNaruto Mod Mar 25 at 14:05
  • Yes _ I just meant one question/answer or a few questions/answers per challenge. IT will take some work searching through 12000 plus q/A s @thelittlenaruto – S K Mar 25 at 14:08
  • @Carmen Did OP say that? :-) – TheLittleNaruto Mod Mar 25 at 15:55
  • you find that amusing, @TheLittleNaruto? Is it part of a moderator's duties to mock posters? – S K Mar 25 at 15:58

    @TheLittleNaruto - "scripturally supported but controversial material needs a label," <----- yep . – Carmen sandiego Mar 25 at 16:19

The controversial banner is in progress. Once it arrives, anyone can vote/flag to mark a post as controversial. I don't think there is a need to raise meta posts for each such post.

If anyone finds such questions till then, better to bring to mods' notice with one single post than multiple posts.
