The voat cabal is already metastasizing on IRC and elsewhere. This is why I asked Atko not to give power mods even more power.

The Cabal is the one thing more dangerous to the health of the community than SRS/SJWs. Unchecked friendships in positions of power inevitably lead to cronyism and corruption.

100% agree, the danger of this to the entire site cannot be understated :(

It doesn't help that moderation is a pretty shitty, thankless task sometimes, you risk painting a target on your back, and it can be a big time-sink. So, as with any position of authority, unless you have a massive hard-on for imaginary internet power, and too much time on your hands, it's not really all that alluring a pursuit. The number of defunct and lifeless subs with inactive mods that made a power-grab and shortly thereafter pissed off somewhere else is a testament to that.

How can we stop crap like this from happening? Colluding out of the light of day so to speak is what fucked a bunch of reddit up to begin with. I feel like any big change to a subverse should require a 10 day advance notice before implementation or something.
