Who runs voat? akto or someone? Anyway, I told them a year ago:

WHEN A POST GETS TRACTION, disable any moderation of it. When good users have spoken, fuck the mods. The stupid fucking mods are always the problem.

So let them upvoat. Downvoted and move on. What do you want to do, censor SRS positions?

We must not become what we oppose.

So let them. That's the whole point of free speech. If you want to sensor them because you disagree with them, then you are just as bad as they are.

Then maybe require something like what we see in movies when they are launching nukes, two people turning two different keys. To kill a popular post it takes two or more mods to turn the proverbial keys to kill it.

Don't care if those idiots can upvoat shit that they like, as long as they can't delete shit that they don't.

People.. people and power is just a bad combination it seems. And especially online, where any unqualified person can be a mod anonymously. We need something on voat to protect the users against mods like this.

Like a system for users to vote for and elect mods? Or to vote to oust mods? Bigger subs, with enough volunteers, that would be a good system.

This is perfect. Mods should just remove spam. The community upvoats and downvoats the content they like/dislike.

Hear hear!

Excellent recommendation. When the community accepts the post and has hit a minimum threshold of comments or upvoats, then the community has spoken and is engaged. It's absolutely idiotic that any mod should have the ability to scrub an active thread because it doesn't end with proper punctuation.
