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.

Yes. It was a proper witch hunt. Again.

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.

The evidence is in the latest announcement. Atko basically said that sticking right to letter of the law regarding rules like that question mark one isn't okay. He thinks it should have been overlooked in cases like that large thread that was deleted, because it was clearly important to the community. I don't agree with allowing mods to bend the rules as long as they can say it's "in the community's best interests", but there you go. I suggest you read the announcement for yourself, but it's been two hours, so I expect you've seen it by now.

The thing is, believing in the same God is all they're doing, really. And that's what's happening here. People who are quite reasonable have been chased down and accused of being SJWs, sockpuppets, and SRS invaders just because they have more liberal views, or sided with She. Not sound reasoning at all, but the mob mentality ignores reason..
