A now deleted mod post changed some of the rules in the subreddit. However, these new rules now contradict themselves. A long time lurker makes a post pointing this out as well as bring up another mod who attacked a user, then deleted all the posts and comments. Like all of their posts not even regarding the attack. Then, the head mod makes a post to clarify the new rules, and pretty clarifies not much. Users call for the mod who attacked someone to apologize. Head mod responds with "It is being addressed on the back-end. If you feel you're owed an apology feel free to send a message in modmail." which goes about as well as you can imagine.
The mod who had attacked a user is seen here issuing an apology. Downvote count makes me believe they don't accept the apology.
Head mod gets removed from mod team. Pretends to still act like a mod.
**This is my first drama post. I have no idea how to use remove reddit to get you all the juicy stuff. If someone wants karma, you could probably make this a much better post.
Confession: I thought RBI was a subreddit all about old baseball stats or a NES series: I never expected an investigation bureau.ID: gpx06cjID: gpxztmp
Right? The entire premise sounds like bad news bears.ID: gpy9r5y
If you love the RBI game series, they brought it back a few years ago with the same retro arcade-style game play (as opposed to the more simulation-based MLB: The Show.) It was pretty much the only baseball going at my house in 2020, and through the divine intervention of my family's mad skills, the Royals won the series!
I did try to convince them to renameID: gpzaval

A subreddit dedicated to the trivia of kinda cool runs batted in would probably be more valuable than what that sub is, if we're going to be perfectly honest.ID: gpzl7br
Old baseball stats?!? We still use RBI, its just not as powerful as it was.
No lie I thought it was about the baseball video game.
r/RBI is investigating itself after a mod seemingly attacked a user and the head mod helps covers it up.
Modder stickies post about “Everyone let’s calm down and have a Civil Discussion.”
In real life I'm in police work. As a result, I don't spend as much time here as I'd like to, though with my rapidly-approaching retirement, that's going to change soon.
What does being a cop have to do with the price of tea in China? Just say “I don’t have a lot of time to moderate but that may change soon.”
I'm not top mod, so this isn't a "hey, I want you to remove moderator so-and-so" post. This is instead going to be a clean modpost to start a civil discussion. Rule clarifications. Complaints. Concerns. Suggestions. Etc.
So you want a clean discussion about moderation without actively discussing every elephant in the room that deals with moderation?
Let's hear what you're thinking and feeling. I'll do my best to answer questions and provide clarification. If I cant answer something, I'll tell you that. If I need to discuss something with the mod team, I'll tell you that. If I can provide you an immediate answer, you'll get it.
All I'm asking is that we keep the discussion civil.
But your sole sticky thread is not allowing anyone to discuss every single problem between the moderation team and community on that subreddit... Which of course you’re redirecting all traffic to this one sticky thread on “Let’s chat...”
What’s the purpose of your community discussion?
The rules are being revisted: We're looking at changing the rules to a shorter list, but each rule having better clarification to avoid confusion and to ensure things that should stay up...stay up.
I don’t think this moderation is going to be able to fix this mess. I think the Admins need to step in to check for bad actors and ethical issues.
It is being addressed on the back-end. If you feel you're owed an apology feel free to send a message in modmail.
This looks like to me bad actors are trying to hide toxicity behind modmail.
:EDIT: I will restructure my comment later. I’m on mobile. But this comment is a gem:
The goal of the RBI (Reddit Bureau of Investigation) is to use the power of Reddit to solve mysteries.
Because that always goes well. Fecimus id, Reddit.
