Calling everyone feds or glossies with no proofs should be a bannable offence. This would not stand in any irl leftist or radical space and is ironically a fed tactic demonstratobly used to destroy spaces and movements.
How would we prove glowness? Should every accusation be accompanied by a spoilered message saying "or a useful idiot for them"? Should all accusations of real organizations as being "honeypots" also state "or at least infiltrated by ..." to be factual?
It's the equivalence of accusing somebody of repeating ruling ideology talking points. It's a decent rhetorical device, it would probably be better to make it a verb to denote that it's something that people did, rather than something they are. The entire tactic of destroying leftist space with accusatory spirals, can be avoided if you focus on actions, you know say to people, you are doing something wrong, rather than saying you are a "wrong-person". They aren't doing much beyond pushing the button that triggers the clerical instinct to excommunicate. if you focus on actions this is bypassed.

Yeah but it's completely harmless here, since it's an anonymous imageboard and therefore calling someone a glowie doesn't actually do anything other than maybe derail the conversation a bit, unlike IRL where it can have actual consequences for the group and the people being accused. It's really not worth banning people over, especially since it's mostly just polemics rather than an actual accusation.
