No, the only time a submission should be removed by a moderator is if it's obvious spam or illegal content like CP, otherwise, let the community curate its content. Shitty and irrelevant posts will be downvoated into the gutter where they belong.

So then remove all posting rules? Have it be another 4chan like shit posting sub that nobody loves? That turns the sub into v/soapboxbanhammer just like kevdude and his srs bois want. Expect completely off topic posts to flood in (already happening thanks to gabara and again here) Expect it to be difficult to find a gaming related post that actually talks about a game. Abandon the subs entire purpose in the name of free speech for a select group of nazi liberal Chan clowns to shit post in.

As a reminder ExpertShitposter broke rule 1 of the sub, on purpose, with the hope that @Kadynce would take the obvious and rightful action. You see these ShitRedditSays users love to concern troll i.e. Pretend to be outraged over an action they coaxed out of a mod on purpose through blatant disregard for rules so they'd just have to make this post and remove a mod. End result and goal being yet another sub they can shit post bland nonsensical nazi memes to.

The user base of people that post and comment in v/gaming are saying they like rule 1, I like rule 1, why would a gaming sub not have a rule 1? gaming related posts only.

Why can't the SRScrowd just post about games?

Why is posting about a gaming related subject so hard?

Goats go to that sub for a break.

Reminder that kevdude did the same thing to v/science which is now a dead sub that gets spam from CannabisTimes. You chase the users and mods away like kevdude wants and you have no sub (like kevdude wants)

Default subs: Decisions made by the goats of voat, moderators are there to enforce such decisions.

User-created subs: Mods/owners can do as they please, it's their sub. If you don't like it, start your own. The only exception being if a user-created sub is breaking the few site rules (e.g. no CP).

Mods and subs is what killed Eddit. Giving power to individuals opens the door to scammers who want to sell accounts to Jew activists who will happily pay for them. Then they slowly take over a website and ruin it. Changup the system to make it better. Have users of Voat report spam and bots to mods. A post gets reported 10 times, let's say, then the mod decides whether or not it's spam and has the power to remove it, but only after a certain amount of Voat users report it. Every once in awhile collusion where 10 shareblue accounts will voat with a planted mod. If it's obvious, then the website owner can remove the entire group. Also only give people who have been here over 3 months the power to report spam. This would make it really hard for a group to dominate the website.

I'm sure there are plenty of other ways to better handle it than the methods Eddit used, which didn't work. Which is why were here.

Couldn't agree more. Dead on.

And if 'expert shit poster' is bothered about it why's is 'kevdude' making a post on his behalf. Strength in numbers right, protect voat?


[–] Diggernicks 2 points 4 points (+6|-2) ago 

I can't be tough irl so I'll overcompensate by being a bad ass on the internet, let's give this a whirl.


[–] Diggernicks 5 points 2 points (+7|-5) ago 

Nah this is nigger faggot logic. Too many brainwashed weak minded kids here who get easily ass blasted by words on the internet. Censorship is pure failure.


[–] 9-11 5 points 1 points (+6|-5) ago 

Nobody has yet to answer...

Why is it so hard to just post game content to v/gaming? As per rule 1


[–] SparkS 5 points -3 points (+2|-5) ago 

u are relatively retarded but wtfever.

So, freedom of expression only works if your saying something? Is it shitty? Yes. But this is Voat. The community should handle the issue. The moderator is there to moderate completely at their discretion, unless there are community rules. Then the community should handle their issue. The second that voat as a whole starts exercising their will on smaller, less powerful groups, is the second we go down the Reddit Road and into the Digg Ditch.

Note: all within the confines of applicable laws.

Reddit cancermodding will not be tolerated, and supporting the use of modtools as "freedom of speech" to remove others' speech is really quite stupid.


[–] SpecialtyPizza 4 points 25 points (+29|-4) ago 

Eat a dick niggerfaggot. We dont need shithead mods deciding what is good and bad. So long as its not spam or bullshit then they shouldnt be involved.

The moderator is there to moderate completely at their discretion

Go the fuck back to reddit with that bullshit attitude. The site is the community. The mod is not the voice of the community, the vote count is.
