Town of 4000 learns it will receive 3000 migrants. Residents told to put up with it or leave. submitted by Amateur_Wizard to news

mindful 10 points 60 points (+70|-10) ago

In the video about Langenlonsheim there's the conclusion at the end that they will advise the government to not exceed a number of 1000 refugees for the small village. How this will play out is not clear yet and the title that OP choose is just plain wrong. From the article /u/Amateur_Wizard posted:

"In another town, the regional Governor basically told everyone, “if you don’t like it (having 400 refugees dropped in your town) — you can leave! We have, as Germans, freedom, and you are free to leave if do not agree.”

It's very convenient to mix up the two different towns and creaty a sensationalist and inaccurate title like he did. It also gets repeated further down in the article like this:

Mr. Walter Lübcke is the regional Governor and basically told everyone, “if you don´t like it(having 400 refugees dropped in your town) – you can leave! We have, as Germans freedom, and you are free to leave if do not agree.”

So up is, willingly or not, misinforming everyone and the herd upvotes it. This is not how voat should be. @amyacker @forksandguys @typo

Edit: a word

Edit: A note for people downvoting. I hope i am not giving you the impression that i see nothing wrong with the way the refugee influx in germany is being handled, far form it! But what i don't like is facts getting bent or falsified in order to make a headline more appealing to people. The german government isn't handling the refugee crisis like they should and they are now just acting when the place is, so to say, already burning. There was a press conference with the migration council (consisting of 100 scientists or so) that slammed the way the german government is handling the crisis. I do share their opinion. However, presenting people with false information (check the article to verify the headline, please) just to get some upvotes or whatever is just wrong. This title should be labeled as misleading as it is just that.

Reddit deleted every single thing I posted about this petition submitted by User_5X22_Dawn to politics

mindful 1 points 56 points (+57|-1) ago

The petition was created today and has 1 of the 100.000 signatures it needs. What's the deal here /u/User_5X22_Dawn? Did you just make this sensational title up or was this really deleted on reddit at every instance you posted it?

Please don't get me wrong, it isn't my Intention to dismiss the petition itself. Politicians making all kinds of promises during the election, which they don't keep once elected, is a problem, but the way in which you present the petition seems a little but dubious to me.

Edit: spelling & grammar

I didnt think TTIP could get any scarier, but then I spoke to the EU official in charge of it submitted by Ex-Redditor to news

"I do not take my mandate from the European people.” - Cecilia Malmström

It just boggles my mind to see the chief negotiator of the eu taking such a position. How did we get to this point where officials don't care one bit about the people but do everything our corperation backed lobbyists say? This must end.

The eternal moderation dilemma, I'd like to hear your thoughts on this one submitted by Atko to announcements

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

I don't know if this is possible yet and how easy it could be done, but wouldn't it be a option to use the blockchain technology as a public ledger?

Or we could add rules to who would be able to vote? (stopping people from registering accounts just for vote manipulation)

So Ms. Clinton... why should anyone vote for you? submitted by zquad to politics

mindful 1 points -1 points (+0|-1) ago

"The last batch of Hillary Clinton emails released by the State Department included one from Clinton asking to borrow a book called “Send: Why People Email So Badly and How to Do It Better,” by David Shipley and Will Schwalbe.

Take, for example, Chapter Six: “The Email That Can Land You In Jail.” The chapter includes a section entitled “How to Delete Something So It Stays Deleted.”"


She probably knows a lot more than she's admitting. Shrugging off the question about wiping the servers seems like a bad move.

Do moderators have to maintain a positive CCP? submitted by Kal to ProtectVoat

mindful 1 points -1 points (+0|-1) ago

It seems like you are for any way in which she will get unmodded. Downvoting her into oblivion is not the right way to do this. If she is really so bad of a mod, clearly she will slip up again. A moderator should be unmodded if he isn't capable of moderating a sub and not because of some CCP or whatever.
