If you want to continue to post negative stories about Chicago, then I will encourage you to create your own sub-voat dedicated to it. There is plenty of hate and negativity all over Voat that will welcome you with open arms.
This forum is to be used for positive news and discussion about the city of Chicago and the surrounding area.
I have been asked on what authority I do this. Precedent has been set that subs can have rules that explicitly state what kind of content is allowed. I have chosen to enact one: posts may no longer be negative. They may no longer paint the city in a negative light. If you want to post how many people were shot this weekend, please post it to another sub.
Also, I have set the sub to allow only authorized submitter for the time being. This is a temporary change to prevent brigading from other subs. If you wish to be an authorized submitter, message me.
