So your main concern seems to be about concerted efforts to upvote some external bad stuff. I'm not sure the best counter to that is to ban all external stuff.

I'd say default to trusting the upvotes/downvotes and only remove things if there is solid proof of actual vote tampering. Proactive censorship is so like that other site ;-)

Unfortunately, you misunderstood.

There is no method to obtain solid proof of vote tampering nor is that my concern.

Removing information that is not relevant in a forum is not censorship and is essentially the top function of a moderator. Also, removed content appears in the logs (in the sidebar) and can be reviewed/discussed there, so isn't truly censored anyway, even if that were my intent.

The best way to understand this is to look at the name of the sub then go back as far as you can stand and look at the content that's been posted already.
