We are still actively working on the spam issue.
While you have blocked bot-spam with your last administrative action, you have failed to ban a mass spammer who continues to vandalize this wiki. Please take action as soon as possible. The user is Esio. There was even a poll surrounding whether or not to just let it pass, and the poll voted against. --Se7en(1) (talk) 08:15, 18 March 2020 (CET)

So you finally showed yourself, I take it you are the admin? Why are you allowing racism on this website? I see the word chink on some pages. I know it is a trend to hate on Asians right now, but that doesn't mean it is right. You of all people, with a Japanese name, should know better, since we are all on the same boat. I heard about the site 4chan, it is inhabited by a bunch of nerds and I know they have no life, but they still shouldn't be spamming racism on a wiki, that is just really sad.
What I want is all text of the racial slur chink be removed, and the chink shit general be renamed to Chinese Stuff General and all the links to it changed, can you do that?
- This is a 4chan wiki, what do you think the symbol in the top left hand corner represents? Documentation isn't "racist". Like I said, why are you even on this wiki in the first place? Not one user here values what you are trying to accomplish, spend your time somewhere that does. -Ethereal (talk) 10:43, 31 March 2020 (CT)
Esio (and now you) are banned because they did not follow the guidelines in [Name/Terminology Changes: "Chinese Stuff General"]. This has been categorized as vandalism. The rationale is laid out there.
If your goal is to counteract and speak out against a recent uptick in racism, understand that we are simply documenting 4chan culture, which can often be very biased and very disrespectful in most peoples' opinions. We distinguish that from how we write about those events, which should follow much more rigorous guidelines. I do think there is racism somewhere in these pages but as far as I can tell you haven't found it. I'm perfectly fine with people rewriting copy from a [neutral point of view] by removing loaded terms and discussing their changes in the Discussion page if their change is reverted. Additionally there shouldn't be any original research or editorialization on these pages not backed up by activity on 4chan's /g/. Misquoting or misrepresenting 4chan culture, however, is not permitted. We basically document activity on 4chan and that's it. These are standard wiki rules.
More generally: as far as current events, I assume you're talking about the coronavirus. The racist terms you see on these pages have been in place well before the coronavirus pandemic. This corner of the world has not been affected significantly by the coronavirus over the past few months. The people who frequent /csg/ are mostly severely low-income, usually NEET, and have little respect or desire for emulating social norms. Quarantines, layoffs and panic buying of toilet paper don't affect them that much. And you'd be surprised - they're usually fanatical about the products they buy, and think the Western products are a ripoff. The real community change that has occurred over the past few months has not been one of increasing racism, from what I've seen; it has been that some people have developed a hyperawareness toward sinophobia and sought out communities they deemed to be afflicted by it, such as apparently ours. To many contributors, though, your plight seems tone-deaf for the reasons above. If someone comes into a community and starts bossing people around due to misconceptions about the community's culture, is that going to leave a positive impression, about either that person or their agenda? With that in mind, I personally think there are better ways to be an ambassador to your cause.
