We REALLY need a report button for posts. This is ridiculous. submitted by ForgotMyName to ideasforvoat

I have no problem with this, just make the user report/delete process transparent so that it can't be abused. Wikipedia does a fine job of having a consensus-based deletion process, which allows the user a fair chance to argue their case, leaves a paper trail, and can be undeleted later if a mistake has been made.

Does voat use shadowbanning? submitted by mcseanerson to AskVoat

InMediaRes 0 points 150 points (+150|-0) ago

Here's why we should not shadowban: Who can be responsible enough to do shadowban voaters without bias? With shadowbanning in place, the powerful become too powerful to control, since they can now easily silence dissent. It spreads paranoia and discourages individual opinions.

Shadowbanning is one of the ways groups devolve into hive minds.

Edit: /u/gervase has given a link to the Subverse mod logs here. This is real transparency, and a solid win for Voat.

This is an Orweillian 1984-esque rewrite of the original article. Almost none of the dispassionate, distanced, neutral view of Mike Issac made it past David Streitfeld's opinionated and barbed "journalism". Et tu, New York Times?

Edit: Just compare the first sentence of each:

Original article: Ellen Pao, the interim chief executive of Reddit, resigned from the online message board on Friday after a week of ceaseless criticism from scores of angry users over the handling of an employee departure.

Revised article: Ellen Pao became a hero to many when she took on the entrenched sexist culture of Silicon Valley. But sentiment is a fickle thing, and late Friday the entrepreneur fell victim to a shrill crowd demanding her ouster as chief executive of the popular social media site Reddit.

edit 2: Try clicking "Later revision" button in OP's link...I'm seriously considering boycotting NYT after this.

ITT: Microsoft shills.

Aren't you afraid of the slippery slope possible here? Soon we'll have to pay to simply get ads off our computers.

Windows 10.5 base edition will be completely "ad-supported", but of course, it'll be "free".
