Political mods banned on the Nexus.

A quote:

Recently we have seen a spate of provocative and troll mods being uploaded based around current sociopolitical issues in the United States. As we get closer to the US election in November we expect this trend to increase as it did this time 4 years ago.

Considering the low quality of the mods being uploaded, the polarising views they express and the fact that a small but vocal contingent of our users are seemingly not intelligent or grown up enough to be able to debate the issues without resorting to name calling and baseless accusations without proof (indicative of the wider issues plaguing our world at this time) we've decided to wipe our hands clean of this mess and invoke an outright ban on mods relating to sociopolitical issues in the United States. We have neither the time, the care or the wish to moderate such things. This ban will apply to all mods uploaded from the 28th of September onwards. We will review this restriction sometime after the next President of the United States has been inaugurated.

Most of these mods are being uploaded by cowards with sock puppet accounts deliberately to try and cause a stir. If you see one of these mods I suggest you do as our Terms of Service say and report the mod and move on without engaging with the content. Your engagement will only fuel the idiots further. Smile and be happy in the knowledge the time it took them to make an account on the site and upload their mod is a lot longer than it takes for us to ban the account and delete the mod.

To be blunt, we do not care how this looks nor do we care if you think the mods we do or don't moderate reflect on us, our political beliefs or what we do and don't want on our site. Say and do what you want on other sites or services, we care nothing for it here.

Have a great day.

I have to admit I was a little put off by the tone at first, since I mostly stay in Skyrim Modding Land, and the most we've had that I'm aware of is like, a Black Lives Matter main menu replacer followed by some Trump/Thin Blue Line main menu replacers. However, I know things have been a lot crazier on the Fallout side of things. I even know a few friends of mine reported a mod that changed raiders in Fallout into "Antifa" and used a picture of a real world dead protestor as their mod page's image. I am not sure how I feel about an outright ban on US political topics (I have been using one of those menu replacers I mentioned, and I will let you guess which one), but I do admit something serious needed to be done, even if it was a temporary bandaid.
