The world's biggest modding site won't tolerate the intolerant.
Spider-Man Pride

Spider-Man Remastered recently released on PC and, for the most part, people have been enjoying the game without issue. Of course, there was at least one person that didn't much like the depiction of a handful of Pride flags present in the game. This person created a mod that replaces the Pride flags with the American flag, aka the Stars and Stripes.

The mod was uploaded to Nexusmods, which is arguably the largest site in the world for accessing and downloading mods for most any game that has a modding community. Nexusmods ended up quickly removing the mod as well as banning the user who created and uploaded the mod to the site. Naturally, some drama ensued in the aftermath of the mod's removal and ban. To combat some of users upset at this stance, Nexusmods wrote a new blog post that places a set of clear guidelines for the future as well as providing additional details about the mod maker that was banned.

To address the banning, which is what a lot of people want to focus on, the mod was uploaded by a sock puppet account (i.e. a newly made account by someone who already has an account on the site) and uploaded under the name "Mike Hawk". It was very clearly done deliberately to be a troll mod. The fact the user needed to make a sock puppet like a coward to upload the mod showed their intent to troll and that they knew it would not be allowed. Had they not been a coward and had they used their main account instead, we would have simply removed the mod and told them that we did not want to host it, only banning them if they reuploaded it again after being fairly warned. The creation of the sock puppet removed any doubt and made it a very easy decision for us. Both the sock puppet account and the user's main account have been banned.

In regard to the replacement of Pride flags in this game, or any game, our policy is thus: we are for inclusivity, we are for diversity. If we think someone is uploading a mod on our site with the intent to deliberately be against inclusivity and/or diversity then we will take action against it. The same goes for people attempting to troll other users with mods deliberately to cause a rise. For our part, we will endeavour to do a better job of moderating our website to this ethos ourselves.
Nexusmods continues on to say that they "aren't the authority on what users can and cannot mod." If you want to create a mod that removes Pride flags from a game, you are free to do so. However, Nexusmods is a privately run company and can choose what content they do and do not allow on their site. So even if you do make a mod, they are not obligated to keep it hosted on their site.

We don't want to and won't argue this with you. We've now explained our stance and we won't be providing a platform for you to distort our position in order to feed an irrational and paranoid narrative. You can do that elsewhere, where we won't care enough to read it.

If this policy upsets you, if we've broken some moral code of conduct as a business that you can't accept, then please, delete your account (bottom option) and move on, as we will.
Interestingly, the mod that is the focus of this entire controversy did nothing more than force the game to think that it was being played in Middle Eastern locations and other countries where the Pride flag is verboten. The assets used were already set up in the game itself.
