I dunno, guys. I've looked at @she 's profile and have looked at the mod logs. Most of the posts were deleted because they broke rule 1, no question mark at the end or "does not ask a proper question". That was their rule #1.

Now, @atko has sounded off and has made his intentions clear that punctuation isn't a valid reason to delete a post. That's on the record. But, you can't blame a mod for adhering to the rules of the sub at the time.

We've all sounded off with our disapproval, and we've been heard. If @she is still cool with modding the sub I'd say that I appreciate that I appreciate her commitment. It isn't easy modding a sub, and it's obvious by some of her recent comments that she is committed to the work and would feel a loss if it were taken from her. I respect that a great deal, like I said - it's not paid work and it is work to mod a sub.

As far as comments like, "people who hate political correctness.....", that's her opinion and I respect her for voicing it as it is her right to voice it. I am here to hear other's take on the world and the human condition which we all share.

So as far as I am concerned: deleting popular posts for not having proper punctuation sucks. While it's not difficult to phrase something as a question and include a ? as proper punctuation I agree that it was a crappy rule 1. But now that the issue is settled, as long as @she is happy to mod and adhere to the rules, I'd say thanks and would be happy to argue / debate her opinions on political correctness in society in the future.

I disagree completely.

@she and @shiny have driven this sub into the ground with their ridiculously robotic implementation of a rule which was unpopular with users and proven to be flawed. They have suppressed various debates about this, have shown that they are unwilling to entertain the concerns of the majority of the community, and have left few options other than to force their removal.

If they remain as moderators here, instead of stepping aside for the good of the sub, that will only serve to show they care more for their imaginary internet power than they do about the good of the community.

Whether @she is an SJW is merely a side-issue as far as I'm concerned. The pair of them are clearly not effective moderators and ideally this should have been fixed before the Voat admins were forced to remove the sub from defaults.

The people of this sub have driven it into the ground worse than any of the mods have done. I had to block the whole sub yesterday thanks to "content creators".
