I think the mods have been doing a fairly good job so far. It really says something about Voat when one bad moderator causes this much of an uproar. I am glad we are holding each other to high standards here.

And we should continuously do so! That's the only way to grow the community in good way.

Yeh it does say something about voat. It says they aren't a bunch of cucks.

Cucks like on reddit, who constantly downplay sjws and call you a neckbeard on otherwise because they want to make their tiny dicks wiggle.

Fuck, I hated the "neckbeard" thing. Juvenile bullshit to derail an otherwise proper thread.

I've been following some of the censorship of reddit and it really goes deeper than most people realize. I think I lot of people don't want to see that happen to voat. Social Justice warriors who want to remove the world from anything that might be offensive in the name of making the world a "safe space" probably shouldn't be moderating voat and I think most people here don't want to see that happen.

It should be a "moderator motto" that if opinions or facts easily "trigger" you you need not apply. I'm not saying the mod in question did this but I think the majority of people here would rather be offended than silenced.

Mod here, not on a default, but a smaller community.

How I see it, mods from reddit came to voat for many reasons, and their agenda followed as well.

Move on normally, and when the sjw ruler-fuckery shows up, STOP IT.

That's how we keep this place clean, and open.

Here is the issue though in this situation people got angry because @she had different political views than the majority here, that's when people started questioning their mod status, not based on actions as a mod. If a SJW came under control of a default sub and started censoring people atko could just remove them. We shouldn't be acting on things like this until someone actually does something.

No one is angry because she has different political views. We're angry because she's deleting posts left and right for stupid reasons on what was a default subverse. We came to this site to get away from that shit and seeing a mod do it on here is spitting in the faces of most of Voat's userbase.

Where have you been mate? The differing opinions are OK but she was being a but of a cunt to boot.

You're missing some of the details though. She was petitioning for control of the subverse as well.

The combination of:

(1) SJW Leanings

(2) Heavy Handed Awkward enforcement

(3) Grab for Power

was the basis for my concern. Alone, any one of those things wouldn't rile me up much. But combined, that was what had/has me worried.

Oh right, reporting Voat to the FBI is just a difference in politics.

You get downvoated within the first 5 minutes. SJW at work.

At least Atko's trying to keep this place cancer free.

Not really. I don't quite care. I've never liked she from the start and am glad to finally see her get caught doing the bullshit she always does. I don't care if Atko removed it from defaults, and feel it was a smart move if the subverse was being modded by someone known for stirring shit.

I just unsubbed from the whole thing, saw this post on my way out.

The question mark thing was stupid, the resulting flip out over the mods opinions was absurd to the point of hypocracy.

"WE'RE VOAT, WE SAY WHAT WE LIKE, FREE SPEECH EVEN IF IT'S REALLY STUPID SPEECH.... UNLESS IT'S THAT ONE MOD, CENSOR THAT THO..."

derp.
