Abstract:This preliminary study examines an online community’s open censorship moderation practice, revealing a concern for the quality of the archive produced by discussion board discourse. Moderator comments in a censorship sub-forum are examined to determine the rationale behind otherwise vague published rules. Instead of motivating participation with supportive administration strategies, the strict moderation practices in the elitistjerks.com (EJ) forums intervene in conversations in ways that prioritize the intelligibility and accessibility of the archive by being a “jerk” to bad contributors.
