See for yourself https://voat.co/v/askvoat/modlog/deleted

Her viewpoints on their own don't bother me, but she's only been here two months and is already trying to take control of one of the biggest subverses https://voat.co/v/subverserequest/comments/330770 Combine the new user power grabbing and certain ideologies and it looks a lot like the cabal that took over reddit.

I'm conflicted because I hate everything SJW but it feels like we are stooping to their level by acting out of emotion. I have no doubts it would be the best thing for her to resign but forcing people out of modship when they aren't really censoring is a scary precedent that's all. This whole situation sucks.

I've been trying to say the same thing all day while getting killed with downvotes. The deletions people had a problem with were the type of questions that don't really ask anything but instead make a statement in the form of a question, kind like that DAE bullshit.

I think why people are reacting they way they are right now is that they are paying far more attention to how the SJW community operates vis-a-vis their infiltration tactics and usurpation of control of most of the popular social media platforms. From Tumblr to Reddit, gaming forums, atheist forums, and now attempting to gain control of Voat, the SJWs rely on the same mistakes being made by their mortal enemies (normal society). That is, average participants of these various forums ignore the aggressive and abrasive comments of the SJWs in order to maintain a spirit of openness and a communication platform devoid of censorship. "What's the harm? Everyone can have their say," normally functioning people may think at first. Then, as the SJWs continue their constant migratory invasions of one platform to another, like the great locust swarms of legend, they begin to insert their members into positions of power, biding their time until they've reached a critical mass. At that point, they flip the switch and go full SJW retard by emplementing their now notorious tactics of censorship through post deletions and mass banhammer executions. So, no. Don't feel bad about being proactive. Be proud that you won't sit there and take it anymore. SJWs have already taken everything else. They don't need Voat. But they want it. Why? Because it brings pleasure to people who don't blindly march to their ideological tune, and seeing their mortal enemies enjoy life angers the SJWs as much as living in a free world.

I see nothing there that could be censorship. She's removing posts that call to block the sub, and other non-questions.

Are you trying to impose guilt b association? I have seen very many people trying to suggest She must be guilty of something because of her strict enforcement of the stupid no question mark rule, and because of her views.

That's bollocks.

A rule is a rule, and moderators are supposed to enforce them. Of course, now Atko has decided they can bend them, so it's a different story. But at the time, that was the way it was. And as for her views? So what if they look like the supposed cabal that took over Reddit? That doesn't mean anything. A lot of Muslims share a few of the views of the people who blow themselves up, do you get paranoid about them too?

As far as I've seen, the claims that She's moderation is corrupt are just complaints about being to the very letter about the rules, and witchhunting her because her views are "too SJW".

I think the takeaway from all of this is that Voat reeaalllyyyy hates SJW's. Honestly I'm in that camp as well but everyone is just seeing red right now and ignoring rational discussion.

If the views they share go beyond simply believing in the same sky god, I do start to get concerned.

now Atko has decided they can bend them

Do you have any evidence to back up that statement? Also, not all of the mods agreed with the question mark rule, and it has now been removed... hopefully /u/she will be removed soon as well.
