The community that you are a part of is inherently part of who you are. You associate with the people that are in this community and as a result, you are slightly defined by who you are around.

As someone who will be judged by this regardless, they need to find other issues that they can overcome.

- Facebook will hire 3000 more moderators when moderating becomes a problem. It does not because of that shut down.
