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.

No, that is not what started the outrage against @she stop trying to change it after the fact. The outrage at @she being a mod started and snowballed due to their political views. People were painting their removals as political and they weren't, this all started AFTER the outrage at @she being a mod of /v/AskVoat with certain political view. @she was enforcing the subverse rules. Was it a stupid rule? sure. Petition to change the rule then! That isn't what happened, instead people personally went after @she rather than the mod team to change the rule.

That might have played a part but was not the main reason and certainly not for me.

I think what got the ball rolling yesterday was this (now deleted) submission:

How do you feel about an /v/askvoat moderator saying: The only people sick of "political correctness" are those who get pissed off because someone tells you not to use bigoted slurs and sexist speech.

I was one one of the first to comment there and simply provided the  links to the modlogs so that people could go and look for themselves if the deletions were justified or not. 

And when I started to browse there as well, I was first struck by the inordinate amount of deletions and after reading some, secondly by how many good conversations were among them.

I then made the edit to my comment reflecting this impression and in the following hours this comment with the edit stayed at the top of the thread while the submission garnered 480 comments and 300 upvoats.

Up to this point I had never heard of She and it wasn't actually until many hours later that I realised that she was responsible for almost all of the deletions. And I'm sure that the vast majority of Voaters that joined in the discussion that day had never heard of She before that day either  

So no, her downfall was not caused by her political views or an 'anti SJW' conspiracy, but simply by her bad decsions while modding AskVoat. 

Just to set the record straight.
