Yes, I understand that, but does she not has the right to hold on to her beliefs and express them? That is after all what Voat is supposed to be about. She still gets downvoted and negative comments, but (as far as I know) she hasn't abused her powers as moderator. She has the freedom of speech to voice her opinions, however radical they may be, same as any other user on Voat, but when she crosses the line by actively censoring users and deleting comments, then we have a problem.

I agree. The main concern for me is, what do we do if that becomes an issue? At the current time, there's not really anything end users can do, and if Voat grows, it will eventually become a problem that Atko and PuttItOut simply won't be able to deal with due to magnitude. So I think there's a need to consider ways to deal with moderation that stops being fair and reasonable before that possibility comes true.

Freedom to express, not freedom to dominate. She has already censored askvoat

Not that I don't believe you, but could provide some sources?

Ever heard of preventative measures? The whole points of this is to NOT ALLOW those types to establish themselves here and spread like cancer, because trust me, once they gain a proper foothold their attitude changes from "ohh i just think this but it doesn't mean i'm gonna ban those who don't" to "my brigade friends are around here, you better not talk back or the deletes will fly".

It's EXACTLY how it happened on reddit, seemingly docile sjw users turning into pieces of shit overnight once they garner enough "merit" on the site.
