That's what the karma system is for. It doesn't encourage toxicity any more than anything else. If the majority agree in a group how this game is perceived by the community then those ideas will raise to the top.
Shadow banning, locking and deletion of posts/threads that don't break any rules is pure manipulation by the moderation team to skew the views of the members of this sub.
EDIT: This isn't just a "reddit" problem, l just checked out the backer rooms on the discord and it's worse than here. Even Atomic Duck is being attacked lol
I made a post after the July 17th update that I bet was shadow banned as soon as a mod saw it, even though it doesn't break any rules. They can't take the heat that they are creating by BSing us for a long time now and lock threads with links for proof.
