Submission with 3000 upvotes removed from /r/programming: Oracle Chief Security Officer tells users to stop checking code for vulnerabilities submitted by MaunaLoona to MeanwhileOnReddit

imkharn 0 points 17 points (+17|-0) ago

No. Making sure the topic is not something degrading to the interests of the topics community is the most important job for the mods.

A moderators job is to keep the intended user-base happy not themselves happy, not the topic happy. It is never to overrule the overwhelming interests of the community like you seem to think.

Moderators should be like security at A-Con. Removing the assholes making the event unenjoyable for anime fans is the limit of their power. Running around harassing everyone not talking about anime is not acceptable. Sure if a brigade of westboro shows up causing a scene that the community does not like they might be censored if the average anime fan is ok with such censorship. Moderators work for the community, not the other way around.

Are we going to condone voat manipulation? submitted by 2716057 to AskVoat

imkharn 1 points 15 points (+16|-1) ago

Banning this may just push it more into hiding. Its kind of hard to stop activity like this.

Perhaps if the system was changed. For example if there was something similar to Karma, but where you lose some when you upvoat and lose even more when you downvoat. Transferred from person to person. Along with some fresh supply system...Not sure, but you get the idea. The only way to actually stop upvoat circlejerks is to have some sort of downside. If there is only positive incentives it will continue to happen.

What is one feature you would add to Voat? submitted by CaptainVoat to AskVoat

imkharn 1 points 13 points (+14|-1) ago

To the right on every subreddit is a list of moderators for that subreddit. Each moderator should have a checkmark next to it defaulted checked. If unchecked all changes, spam removals, comments, censorship by that mod becomes undone and visible but only for the person unchecking it.

I think this should be extendable to all users. Every user should be able to be able to block/censor another user but only from their own point of view. Like in an MMO when you mute someone.

If implemented on reddit or voat for example, people would no longer be able to complain about shitty mods, if they really think a mod causes more harm than good they can block that user. Sure they would see all the spam they removed, but they would also see all that that person censored.

Before designing a centralized system to overthrow moderators, lets decentralize the decision to the point of view of each user, it will render a lot of the problem moot.

Why can't gays accept that some people are born homophobic? submitted by GOT to AskVoat

imkharn 3 points -2 points (+1|-3) ago

Sure they didn't get it at birth, but do think they can choose to end their homophobia? It may not be permanent or inborn but it is not a choice, and I think the author brings up a good point that we should be respectful even towards delusional/traumatized/brainwashed people.... or at least towards their stuck state of mind...not always how they act on it.

What are your 5 favorite websites? Why? submitted by emjenny to AskVoat

Lauren Southern appears to think sex, gender, and gender expression are all scientifically proven to be the same thing. She also appears to handle her activism by spreading negative energy and trolling instead of love and empathy. I look forward to approaching her in person to understand the basis of her beliefs a few months from now.

Why the hatred for Jews? submitted by chicoski to AskVoat

imkharn 3 points -2 points (+1|-3) ago

Am I paraphrasing your logic correctly? "Historically people born as a jew have judged people by their birth instead of their character, and this is wrong to do, and therefore I hate anyone who was born a jew"

Perhaps you really mean that you hate race supremacist ideologies. Perhaps your hatred should be directed at some ideology, some "ism" and not some genetic line.

Personally, I think hating on a group just makes that group more hateful, arrogant and close minded. Sounds like a worse world to me. Here is my world view in a sentence. Love, hate and violence amplify when reciprocated and only cease through antithesis.
