Is political satire allowed? submitted by MostlySober to videos

Splastershoes 0 points 24 points (+24|-0) ago

I'll second his other question.

"What is the purpose of the 'no politics' rule?"

Bill Maher, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert and Chris Rock all seem to be banned from /v/videos. New moderators are looking to enforce a "no politics" rule submitted by GOT to ProtectVoat

Why stop at banning political videos? Why not also ban funny videos? They should be submitted to /v/funny, right? What about videos about cars? Shouldn't those be posted to /v/cars instead? Nature videos should be posted to /v/nature only, right? Isn't this the EXACT thing Atko warned us about and used to justify removing /v/AskVoat as a default subverse? He used the example of /r/technology preventing the posting of any Tesla-related stories because there was a /r/Tesla subreddit. He thought that was completely asinine, and I absoultely agree with him.

Again, /v/Videos is not a normal, tiny, little, niche subverse. It is a default subverse. That means it should host as broad content as possible. Feel free to subdivide down into niche topics on non-default subverses. This proposed rule for /v/videos just reinforces my belief that perhaps default subs should have some different method for moderating. No one besides Voat's creators should "own" ANY default sub. If you hate political videos so much, why not create a new subverse and call it something like /v/videossanspolitics or /v/nonpoliticalvideos? If the mods are simply tired of seeing too many political videos on /v/videos, then the appropriate response should be "so? Who gives a fuck what you're tired of seeing on this subverse? It's not about you and your personal taste in videos. Get off your power trip and STFU." If users are tired of political videos, then they shouldn't upvoat them. End. Of. Debate.

This is the creeping infantilization of the Voat userbase. Do mods think that users are physically compelled to click on each submitted video and watch them to their ends? Do they believe the userbase is too stupid to realize that once they scroll to the bottom of the front page there is a "next" button that they can click on to see more? That they can keep doing so until they notice a video that seems interesting enough to watch? This is all about control. Personally, I think the only things that should be banned from /v/videos is anything illegal and spam. Mods should make sure the all NSFW videos have the appropriate tag. Other than that, I don't think they should prevent content just because they want to parse it out to other more niche subverses.

Clickbait Vote and Rule Changes submitted by AmyAcker to news

The actual question in your straw poll is stated as, "do you want clickbait sources?" This is the exact opposite of how you described people should vote in your OP post. Please consider editing your post for clarification purposes.

The FAA is the Federal Aviation Administration in the United States of America. I was referencing a recent news story here about a teenager who attached a handgun to a drone, which caught the attention of the FAA and made them investigate into whether or not he committed a crime. It then triggered a memory of a video I saw a few years ago where a guy blew up a car with a drone. Unfortunately, I'm too retarded to realize that it was clearly a faked (CGI) video. Yes, I'm dumb and I remain in my humble chair. LOL. Still, it was kind of funny in the beginning. Anyways, in case you were wondering, here's the link to the relevant news story: http://www.cnn.com/2015/07/21/us/gun-drone-connecticut/index.html

Jeez...I almost threw up a little there. WTF was wrong with people during those times?

"C'mere, little girl. It's time to break your feet and wrap your toes around the bottom so you can look 'pretty.'"

Ummm...'kay.

A question mostly for the social liberals submitted by Mertyx to politics

Splastershoes 2 points 0 points (+2|-2) ago

You get "precious little" huh? Because you clearly don't benefit from firefighters, policemen, EMTs, roadways (construction and maintenance such as snow plowing), a strong military (which provides national advantages), national security, a public funded judiciary, public utilities (especially water and electric), etc...
