@shiny has yet to respond to my question about this. My post was the number one post on voat when @she removed it, it had over 500 responses, at what point are you stealing content from your community to enforce a shit rule? Especially when you wait hours until you decide to enforce it.

Exactly. The TIL mods on Reddit do that all the time, claiming that some arbitrary rule that no one cares about suddenly needs to be enforced on a frontpaged post, meaning that thousands of upvotes and hundreds of people will suddenly find the thread missing.

Regardless of whether the rule exists or not it was a disservice to the subverse to remove a post with 500 responses and 285 up votes that was #1 on the front page. it's clear the subverse wanted it there and had interest in discussing it, removing it was done to silence me and the others that have now come forward. The Streisand effect at full swing here, they've brought this on themselves and will now be wading through spam for a day or so all because they couldn't just admit like adults that their rule was unenforceable and stupid and should never have been a rule to begin with.
