If you just want to see pictures of cats and articles about technology, Eddit's that way ~>

If you want to support free speech like you so fervently claim, then you will let them speak their mind.

There's no reason Voat can't be both.

Agreed.

I was responding to u/mojoconcarne belief that on one hand they support free speech, and on the other hand they are calling this episode a fiasco and a silly witch hunt.

If it's so silly, why is it being upvoated so heavily?

Obviously the community believes its an issue and should be nipped in the bud before posts and views become edited and deleted just like they do at Eddit.

It's true they're speaking their mind but they're suppressing someone who was just speaking theirs. They're acting just like the brigading sjw's they hate. Do I agree with what she deleted? No. Do I support SJWs and their agendas? Hell no. Do I think a person has a right to moderate a forum according to its rules no matter their political opinions? Yes. I've read her posts and saw what she deleted and why. I think she's a tad overzealous but not enough for the tidal wave of hate. Voat's supposed to be about tolerance.

Obligatory copy of my post from other thread-

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.

Woah woah woah. Speaking your mind is one thing, editing or deleting some ones posts (as u/she did) is wrong.

It's akin to putting a gag over their mouth.

You might disagree with somebody, but you will let them speak their mind.

Nobody has the right to be the thought police.

TIL that deleting content that you disagree with personally is "just speaking your mind". My bad, I thought that was actually the definition of censorship, but I guess I was wrong. I'll just pick up that can and move along, eh? Nothing to see here.

If you give an inch, they take a mile. The mods need to be kept in check early and often.

I respect your opinion, though personally, I like the cat pics.
