Sure, but wouldn't it have been a better test to just repost the original deletion with a question mark? You could even make a /v/conspiracy thread about it and brigade it a bit so it's noticed. I don't think there's any rules against that (yet). If that gets deleted, then go batshit.

It would be best, if AskVoat changed their rules so that an active and popular post that is obviously a question, even if it's missing a questionmark wasn't deleted.

It would be next to best if She had recused herself due to the obvious conflict of interest and alerted a fellow mod to act on it instead.

It would be almost as good if Voat were to be upgraded so that titles could be edited.

It would be better than nothing if the AskVoat staff had exercised discretion in their choice whether or not to delete the thread, and kept in mind that Rules are Tools, not straightjackets.

But like what you propose, none of these things are what happened.

I'll agree with both of those. I just wish those were the points that conspiratards made instead of all the SJW accusations.

That...I'm not sure about. Reddit didn't implement it because of the potential for abuse. Whether that concern is valid or not, I'm undecided.

From their perspective, like they explained in the sticky, they're trying to eliminate subjectiveness in their rules, because abuse of that kind of subjectiveness was one of the major complaints people had about reddit. I'm undecided on whether that's valid or not, so whatever, might as well let them run the subverse how they want.

The only reason anyone cares enough for this witch hunt to happen is because of people who disagree with she on some things and have been out to get her for some time now. I'm just amazed that so many people can't see they're fighting against exactly the same free speech they left reddit for, like they only advocate free speech going both ways when they're the ones being suppressed.
