About Democratic Moderation (Referenda) 

Some moderation decisions (such as defederation/suspension of instances) on Cathode Church may be decided by a Referendum of users, rather than unilaterally by administrators.

In this case, the poll will be posted on this account (@moderation), and remain open for 3 or 7 days, depending on the urgency of the issue. At closing, an absolute majority of 75% of votes will result in that decision being enacted directly. Where an option has between 51% and 75% absolute majority, the administrator has the choice to veto the decision for further discussion, or to enact it (but not to enact a different option). Where there is no absolute majority for any option, or no votes are cast, the Referendum may be reopened for a further week immediately, or delayed for further consultation/research before being rewritten. If an option receives a 75% absolute majority of total users of the instance, or 100% of users have voted, the referendum may be concluded before the poll expiry.

Reason: following the example and in solidarity with Black fediverse users and fellow administrators at weirder.earth and rage.love who have defederated from these instances due to continued anti-Black harassment, and harassment-as-shitposting.

In the absence of any Bla(c)k moderators on Cathode Church, I will follow the example of those instances with a history of supporting & listening to Black users.
