Based on her comment history, she has no place being a mod here. This is a slippery slope if you'd like Voat turning into Reddit.

I don't think we can use her comment history against her in that way but I do believe she has already abused her power. Also, if you look at the front page it seems an overwhelming majority of AskVoat and Voat in general disagree with /u/she being a mod of AskVoat. That alone should get her moderator status removed.

The comment history of the account you're using to mod should very much be 'admissible' in any discussion on suitability to mod.

With what evidence do you have? If they don't try to spread their views onto people here through modding why should they not be a mod? It is not a slippery slope. It is people like you gathering to witch hunt someone over stupid comments.

Rather than type it out again, here is what I posted in the original thread she deleted-

I think the issue people have with She is that she is trying to gain top-level control of a major subverse. Noone with such a strong bias on either side should be in control of a major sub. The vast majority of these people would be just as vehemently opposed to someone from v/niggers taking control of v/askvoat. I say let anyone post whatever bullshit they want, but don't let the most opinionated amongst us moderate.


She made a really stupid statement applying intentions to a whole group of people stating it as fact. Its perfectly reasonable to expect a more level-headed person in control of a major subverse.

It appears she is attempting to gain top-level control of askvoat. Showing/discussing that she is so heavily biased against an entire group of people is relevant considering this information.

I believe any poster should be able to say anything at all that they want, but mods should do their best to remain impartial. Showing you have such pre-conceived notions, lack of understanding on reasoned argument, and silly misconceptions seems like a pretty solid reason to stop someone from gaining control of one of the largest verses.

Haven't we been recommending that people notify authorities when they see something they think is illegal?


[–] Oire 9 points 1 points (+10|-9) ago 

She reported content she felt to be in violation of US federal law. How is that a continuation of her "abuse of power"?

I feel like what you personally believe and how you handle things "professionally" are 2 different things.

Not when the professional job you want is moderation of a discussion forum. Noone would want a radical skinhead running askvoat. For the same reason noone wants a person claiming only bigots oppose the SJW movement running one of the core subverses.
