It's not censorship, it's enforcing the fucking rules. If I posted a comic to /v/videos and it was removed would you consider that censorship? Of course not, because it's enforcing the established rules. The rules here aren't even that hard to follow.

Having the rule is fine. Using it to remove the most commented post in over a day on voat, is not.

Noone can convince me that its good moderating to remove a post with hundreds of upvotes and 400+ comments.

Why not? What if they weren't on voat the day it was posted? Just because something that breaks the rules sneaks by they should leave it?

What if you posted a video of yourself turning pages on a comic book and zooming in on the frames of the comic?

That's a better analogy since it seems the vast majority of posts being deleted are obviously questions without a question mark.

The rule itself is

Post titles must include a question "?"

The actual content is Post titles must include a question. The mark is added after in quotes. The posts did include a question. If the only qualifier for "is a sentence a question" is the existence or absence of a question mark, the rule should be

Post titles must include a question mark. "?"

This would solve the issue in a very petty way. But that's not the issue anymore. The issue is these mods are combative with the community, and that's no way to moderate a sub. They just have to go.
