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.

As I understand the situation she didn't edit anyone's post. She deleted threads that violated (albeit loosely) the rules of that particular subverse. Yea nobody has the right to be the thought police but if you're violating rules of a subverse a mod has the right to remove your post. The users who were removed could repost so that their thread fit the rules. Even if the rules are silly. If you don't like the subverses rules go to a different one or make your own. People seem to have a problem with this person because she's a vocal SJW/Feminist in her comment history. She also deletes things particularly fast. I feel she just needs a retraining instead of this big hullabaloo.

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.

Dude, you're just picking a fight now without reading any of the comments related to this discussion. If you're going to get indignant be polite enough to read the entire conversation.

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