'Dirty Laundry' of v/AskVoat

Deleted Submissions
Deleted Comments
Banned Users

Edit: I really find quite a few of the deletions problematic. It seems that many were removed solely on the grounds that they contained no question mark, even though they were phrased as a question.

Just from the first page or two (and there are many more like this):
Why do you think our government has started to make living off the grid illegal

Voatizens, what is your master plan for worlddomination

I just joined Voat, what do I need to know

I checked those submissions. Most of them were deleted for not having a question mark, which is in violation of rule 1.

Hardly what I would call dirty laundry.

That's a pretty stupid rule for things that are OBVIOUSLY questions.


[–] Rea11yN0tMe 2 points 15 points (+17|-2) ago 

Hence the quotation marks. However I find those decisions unnecessary niggardly, see my edit.

Went back to reddit, voat is no different.

Exactly. Also, we have free speech here. How do I feel about @she saying this? I feel like its completely her right to say so. The question mark rule has always been here. I get people are going to complain about following rules when it's convenient, but its also valuable to call out the hypocrisy.

Thanks for posting this! People check this out if you want to see the corruption as it happens, don't let the pc culture sjws destroy voat too.

Also, don't be an asshole, a rule you should follow. Where's the question mark in your title?


[–] RedSocks157 18 points -1 points (+17|-18) ago 

All I see removed/deleted is a bunch of spam and other copy-paste troublemaking posts. You are just another troll.

I looked through three pages of those deleted submissions and had no problem with any of them being deleted. I think requiring question marks is a pretty reasonable rule.


[–] Rea11yN0tMe 0 points 7 points (+7|-0) ago 

In Grammar School yes. However I think reasonable would have been to let the question stand and put a comment in the thread reminding OP and the posters of Rule 1. At the moment this could get buried, however I believe Atko said that sticked comments are coming.
