It was obviously removed for other reasons.

Yup, violating Rule 1 of this subverse, Rule that was set before @she even became a mod of the subverse, a Rule that has been applied by @she as well as other mods to remove all sort of things, even _perfectly legitimate questions that were just missing the question mark_, and oh look, @she removed even obviously SJW posts following that rule! (exhibit A, exhibit B)

If people have an issue with Rule 1 and think it should be changed because it's too prone to abuse, _discuss the change of the fucking rule_, not the integrity of the mods applying it.

(FSW downvoats in 3 ... 2 ... 1 ...) EDIT: eh, called it.

We've brought it up to her, but she constantly refuses discussion about it. I myself have brought it up. Deleting a 100% upvoted thread because there's no question mark is absurd.

It's pedantic, not absurd. Not removing the post after having removed all the others would have be unfair. Re-posting with the question mark is trivial.

Again, if the problem is the rule, _challenge the fucking rule_, not the mods applying it.

Here, I've opened up a discussion to do _just that_, see you there.

My point was entirely lost on you.

Or it wasn't and since I disagreed I took the liberty of telling you why.

Meh, I'm used to this, it's at least the third time since joining Voat that I bash heads with FSWs.

If you were being objective, and I don't think you are, would you at least be able to understand why the sentence:

Post titles must include a question

"?"

would make plenty of people think that the rule has fuck all to do with punctuation and everything to do with making sure questions are asked? Because that isn't even a proper sentence and certainly doesn't say, "must include question mark". I mean, for sure someone would interpret that as include the punctuation, but many other completely reasonable people would not have and would have seen nothing wrong with the post. Great conversation had already taken hold, a warning with some clarity should have sufficed and any reasonable person can see that. Given more rational alternatives existed and the mod who removed it was the subject of the post, I think we can apply Occam's Razor here and at least understand why a thinking man would see the obvious bullshit and not just a moderator applying the rules evenly and fairly.

Actually, no, Occam's Razor here would be exactly about Rule 1 and the stupid question mark, considering that all submissions without one have been deleted for that same reasons, both by @she and other mods, _consistently_. This is the exactly te first thing one gathers from all the “GET HER OUT OF THE MOD ROLL” links to the modlog.
