Moderators, like other humans, should be allowed to have opinions.

And then voice them on voat, which everyone hails as a bastion of free speech.

But, like judges, mods must differentiate between their opinions and enforcing the rules of their subs.


[–] Trip 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

Exactly this. There is a massive difference in a moderator stating an opinion, and maybe even polling a rule about their idea. For example if you want a sub with political correctness, why not poll that? Why not just outright make the sub and say it's gonna be politically correct. Don't impose your political correctness on other subverses though.

To say the mod should be censored is contradicting the idea this is a free speech platform.

I also don't see the issue with that phrase. I do see an issue with people witch hunting after a person for a voiced opinion, which is what this thread is getting at.

I'm not witchhunting. I am showing how stupid the argument is that @she is censoring /v/askvoat. The previous post that was removed was removed because it violated rule 1. That started the "I am being censored" drama. This post does not violate rule 1.

If the mod is going to censor the user base the mod should be removed. You have to be a complete fucking idiot not to grasp this simple point.

You can't hold your leaders accountable until you learn to hold YOURSELVES accountable by putting your own views under public scrutiny.

They should have the freedom to voice their opinion and upvote or downvote comments like normal users. They should not delete comments because they disagree with them.

Yes, but to enforce your own beliefs and make it law is wrong.
