I'm not sure. At the moment, those whose posts are removed get no feedback on what was wrong, others get no practical examples of what to avoid doing, while reporters get little feedback on whether they're reporting the right things, so nothing improves.
I feel I'm still seeing far too much hate speech and too many personal attacks on here, so I'm reducing how many non-cycling topics I read, like others on here that I see in real life tell me they have, even though that does make the forum look more like it's full of political extremists than it really is.
Moderation summary reports in a sticky may help, but only those who want to improve would look at it, while the extremists won't.
