>- Running a site like this is a never ending job that can feel thankless especially when dealing with haters
This is why you should immediately kill yourself. Admins need to act, and more importantly see themselves, as a demigod who has and is constantly trying to detach himself from all emotions. The internet is an ocean of poo and you will always get shit on, all the time everywhere no matter what.
But your goal as an admin is to be able to filter out all the crap and instead try to find the good. Any feature, idea or comment that can help you make this site a better place and achieve the sites goals and philosophy. Don't forget that anyone, ANYONE browsing this site chose to be here. There are countless alternatives (the day the talks of monetization start happening, that's when you'll really be put to the test. This day will only seem like a tiny and pleasant milestone).
And btw you still haven't answered me as to why /news/ is the default board on the home page. I can't change it as a tor user so I always see that awful board, and I don't understand why they deserve free advertisement. Why are you giving /news/ special treatment?
Either make it random each time or set it to blank.
