Considering the percentage of deleted submissions caused by literal interpretation of rule number 1, do you think it would be simpler if the majority of the mods activity was replaced by a simple script using Voat API ?

posts = MakeApiCall(GET, "api/v1/v/AskVoat")
for (post in
    if not post.title.endswith('?'):
        MakeApiCall(POST, "api/v1/v/AskVoat/""/comment", 
                    "value='I removed this post because it's title isn't asking a question "?" Please rephrase and submit again. Thanks!')
        MakeApiCall(DELETE, "api/v1/v/AskVoat/"

I skimmed over the pdf just one minute, but from what I read I'm not really convinced it will be any faster than Tor.

Their main contribution is a reduction of cryptographic operations on each hop, keeping the most heavy computations on end-points only. There may also be some optimizations of the packet sizes. Then they proceed to graph some comparisons of the different protocols on a ... 10Gb/s network.

However, intuitively, I would think that the slowness of Tor is not due to heavy CPU usage of nodes, but simply to the low bandwidth and high latency of the public internet. When creating a Tor circuit hopping from the US, to China, then Europe, then Australia... a few milliseconds of CPU processing is completely irrelevant to the the total hundreds of ms of latency, and the choke-point of 1 node with a few 10s of KB/s that happens to be in the middle of your relays.

Why would someone use a police officer as a battery to charge his camera ‽

Do I see a "No True Scotsman" fallacy ?

Paranoid Worldnews mods in sticky comment: "This thread is currently being brigaded from various sources off-site." They don't - can't - know. Deletion spree via Automoderator in the comment section. submitted by Scandinavian to MeanwhileOnReddit

Eons ago, when Digg still existed, there was the case of a special 16 bytes key used to decrypt DVDs that was published on it, and admins deleted it to comply with DMCA notices ( ).

Of course, users reposted it even more. They were deleted and banned.

Users reposted even more, with more creativity: images, songs, videos (for creativity and to evade automatic detections); until ALL articles submitted were about this key.

Finally Digg admins admitted that they were wrong and stopped banning it.

I hope that a similar user revolt happen and completely overwhelms the ability of moderators.
