You must differentiate between subverse mod censorship and site admin censorship. If someone created subverse I think it's ok for him to set up some internal rules and enforce them. It's different from Reddit-style removal of something because it doesn't please site owners/CEO.

then what's the point of the downvoat/upvoat mechanism if you just delete content based on a single users (mods) opinion?

if you disregard the voat mechanism: voat no longer functions as a social media news aggregate and free speech platform, but more of a censored-hate-infested-circlejerk webforum.

This is exactly why voat has mod logs so this bull shit doesn't happen. use the upvoat/ downvoat button likes its supposed to be used.

Read this:

No legal subject in this universe should be out of bounds. Our aim is to build a site that serves the needs and wants of our users; one that strives for quality over >quantity, and doesn't pander to the lowest common denominator in return for traffic.

and

Will you censor comments and submissions?

While we don't necessarily approve or agree with all content that users submit to Voat, our policy is to not meddle and not censor content unless said content is illegal in Switzerland.

here

If you don't like content you downvoat it you don't remove it. That's censorship, or make your subverse private.

Fatpeoplehate is a hate-infested-circlejerk webforum. That is the point of it. That is why the community was created both on reddit and on here.

"Our aim is to build a site that serves the needs and wants of our users."

The need and want of the user that created fatpeoplehate is to shit on fat people. If you want to start a sub for open discussion on fat people, go right ahead.

"While we don't necessarily approve or agree with all content that users submit to Voat, our policy is to not meddle and not censor content unless said content is illegal in Switzerland."

Again, Voat's policy is to not censor. Not the mods of a sub. A sub can be set up however the creator wants it.

I'm going to assume you are some idiot from SRS or SRD trying to start shit to "enjoy some popcorn." You just come off as an idiot who can't tell the difference between the website itself censoring things and a subverse creating it's own set of rules that don't allow certain things.

We already commented on this. Your comment being deleted was a mistake. Do you seriously not know how to read?

Also you cite something the voat admins said which is not a site wide rule.

Yes you are, get off Voat, make your own echo chamber circle jerk site, and censor and ban anyone that shows up.

Except we aren't shit mods, we just have very good persona management software. Without it we would have never gotten as popular as we did.

The SJWs got FPH banned off reddit and here you are sprouting the same pro-censorship slogan they do. The irony is so strong.

This was deleted by a mod not an admin. Know the difference and the rules for the subverse before you post. Mistake on your part.

They think that mods should not be allowed to do such things on voat actually.

And this isn't reddit style censor ship at all, people really need to think about what's going on, on both sides of things before they make an assumption.

Well, the FPH mods ARE censoring you, but the voat admins are not. You can see that there are deleted comments and each subverse has their rules, so stay away from those you don't agree with.

Man this was a great comment except:

so stay away from those you don't agree with.

how are we supposed to question are own thought and ideas? how are we to empathize and feel with others different from us if we shield ourselves from controversy?

I say seek out all controversy and throw it into the brightest light for all to see!

well, you may be right, comments shouldn't have a way to be deleted (unless if reported and verified as spam) and the mods should be dictated by the community... Like there could be some poll or voating system to change subverses mods. After all, we should be able to speak freely here. What do you think about suggesting it to the admins? (I WOULD upvoat, but I already reached my limit)

I guess they just doesn't want you to see from their point of view. If you don't get it, you just don't get it.

The irony is dripping @fuckredditcensorship deleting comments they don't like, HAHAHAHA! They get banned from reddit and cry censorship, then don't even entertain "dissenting opinions". Damn those mods really are shit-stains. "We're here to help people, but we don't want to hear anything from people who don't agree!" That's just sad. Maybe they did deserve to get shafted off reddit- mods seem like a serious bunch of assholes.

Thanks for posting this. I needed a good laugh. Sorry they shit on ya, I hope somewhere inside you're able to get over it.

EDIT: my fingers did things my brain didn't approve of

I'm reading this thread, not the one linked, but thanks for responding. So how does one who is not a mod of a sub delete a comment? Or are are you just trying to say a new mod fucked up?
