Obviously the focus of this forum should be Monzo and not politics.
However, I’ve noticed a strong political bias in moderation, and I think this needs to be aired.
You’ll see a lot of leftwing political opinion on the Monzo forum, and a total lack of anything right-of-centre.
The following comments were added to the Metro Bank topic:
When I posted to the thread with a post about Metro Bank (and a side comment supporting their CEO for his praising Trump’s business-friendly economic policy), my post was quickly flagged. It didn’t breach any community guidelines. It was far more on-topic than the posts in the screenshot above.
When I followed up with moderators, what happened? My post went from being collapsed to being totally deleted.
This isn’t the first time this has happened. For daring to express an opinion on the Diversity topic that was business-oriented rather than leftist, my posts were quickly flagged and then deleted by moderators.
Yet other political posts remain.
If politics is banned then @moderators should be consistent and collapse all political posts.
If right-of-centre posts are banned, please state this upfront so we can all be aware that this forum has a political agenda, and so that those of us who sit on the right of centre do not waste our energy trying to be part of the Monzo community
