I get where you are coming from-- and also want to to advise caution.

Terms such as "discriminatory" and "hate speech" are poorly-defined-- with lots of room for "gray area"-- , and rules like these can be potentially abused by harassers in an attempt to censor people with whom they disagree. I hope that this doesn't open the doors for ideologues to put pressure on content and ideas that they personally don't like.

For the most part, I'll trust that the itch.io team will be able to make fair judgments and avoid that kind of scenario.

In the current climate of discourse, I'm more worried about hate speech propaganda than SJW propaganda. I'm glad for this policy update.

It's not propaganda though. We don't want hate speech on our platform. Our acceptable use policy is pretty standard operation for probably most sites you use on the internet. This post is 4 years old, in that time there's no instance of us enforcing this policy that has been labeled as "censorship". We don't ban things because people tell us to. Contentious issues are rarely black and white & we review cases carefully. Moderation based on content is pretty rare.
