LMAO. Stoic is trying. She just won't step down and make this all end. So I am guessing it will be a "safe space" for the time being. Sad.

Well I think they are trying to demonstrate to the admins that they can get this sub in line. Given the daily voting limits that everyone has to deal with we are talking hundreds of people downvoting, (basically frustrated users burning the house down because they were comletely ignored and had their sub taken from them). Because they can't admit that it would be that many people pissed off they have to blame an "outside force". (Remember stoic mods an upvoat brigading sub, so he will think in those terms). So the limits were put in place to chill out the outsiders. Not sure how this all plays out. It is interesting. Solid discussion in one thread, popcorn in another, lulz in here.

Anyway, stoic disagreed with the question mark rule and he thought "no soapboxing" was a bad idea for a rule. He may have some reddit tendencies but you never saw his name mentioned when a bullshit deletion happened. So I think he is trying in good faith (the only way he knows) to bring some semblance of order to this sub. I think he is going about it the wrong way but I think some good will come of it. The idea is that voating is power so while the unrest is happening they are trying to find ways to limit that power to "trusted" individuals. Maybe though him taking that approach we will get a definition of who is "trusted" in a given sub as determined by sub-specific ccp and upvoat/downvoat ratios. Once we have that we will have eliminated one of the sticking points against allowing users to vote for mods and prevent things like we are seeing now. Or they are trying to build a shield around u/she's account while they try to figure out a way to upvoat brigade it back to the land of the living. Or maybe its nothing. LOL. Have an upvote!

Average user reading this: Who's Stoic? Feels like a non-sequitur.

There is no rule against soapboxing in the sidebar, though. I know this, because a couple of days ago, I tried to have a conversation with the mods about defining what it is and the fact that it was being enforced despite not being a rule, and they then basically abandoned all discussion once the sub ownership changed. I do agree that this probably counts, but there's no published rule against it because the mod team has been non-communicative.

I would like to thank /u/NeedleStack and everyone else who gave me CCP. Forty-five hours after I posted my comment above, I have nearly 100 CCP. However, in some respects, I am still a member of /v/lurkaholics, which is not a bad subverse. If you prefer to lurk, then please investigate it.

Yup, I looked around and see only upvoats!
