I don't demand anything. I just want to test a theory, and see some responses. Maybe even a deletion, as this is a flaky /v/AskVoat submission to be honest.

An idea would be to make v/DeletedAskVoat. Post the question to v/AskVoat without a question mark or like your post, with a question mark but no question, wait until deleted and than link to the deleted post from v/DeletedAskVoat and continue the discussion in the deleted section here: https://voat.co/v/AskVoat/modlog/deleted

I have not patented this idea, so anybody can claim it :D

But that really is more than a bit of a controversy. Just look at all those deleted interesting discussions and tell me that the community doesn't have every right to be extremely pissed off by those mods.

EVIDENCE

Does that work?

But, I can see why they may delete some of those. My real issue is the reason. Like this gem. How is this not a question?

Like I said, rules are great, but using them as a cheat sheet to avoid doing your job is absolute bullshit.

No, not every time. But, when it starts causing issues for the rest of Voat do you not think it would be the graceful move to say, "Hey, this is a fucking mess, and I'm just going to save us all some drama. Love you guys."

Why does askVoat have to be spammed repeatedly about this moderator issue? It seems like everything on the front page is about it. Mods exist to be hated, as they enforce rules that sometimes silence users.. The real issue is was /v/she enforcing the rules?

I can't disagree more. A mod exists to keep the community active, and easy to use for everyone. Yes, you have to delete things once in awhile. But, you should use that power sparingly. This post was more of a scientific test of a hypothesis. Should my post be deleted? Probably, it's kind of flaky, but did it include the cheat sheet question mark? Yes. I'm all for rules that make it easy to moderate. But, as a moderator it is your job to go over every little letter and make an ubiased, educated assumption. Not, to take the easy way out, or to be hated. When handled correctly a mod won't be hated, even if they aren't agreed with.

Out of order, but like I said. It was to test a theory. SCIENCE!!!
