So, no free speech in v/pizzagate. Definitely has a redditty ring to it.

@Crensch, I know you didn't start that sub but, man, it's got lots of rules!

I get that rules were broken but what's the problem with leaving the posts there and letting the votes decide? It's kinda what Voat is all about if it isn't spam. Flair it with something appropriate by all means, just as PV does, but don't remove them maybe?

They don't have the votes yet to fight off the concerted attack from reddit anti-conspiracy trolls and people who generally don't want pizzagate to have a voice at all. You think there aren't some powerful people who don't want pizzagate to exist and want to turn it into a place that looks crazy by posting crazy stuff there? You are one person I thought would know that.

Nah, it's just crensch being a dick.

I don't follow PG, I'm just anti deletion of anything.

@Crensch, I know you didn't start that sub but, man, it's got lots of rules!

PG is special in that it is specifically an investigation sub. It is not a discussion subverse about anything but PG, it's not a place for anything besides PG-related material.

Its rules are to help keep the place clean and focused on the investigation it was created for.

From the sidebar:

The main intent is to make information easily consumable and help people make connections. Bring this intent to every post you make.

The particular rule in question is to prevent posts of 40 min videos with no information of how it's linked to PG.

Any license the mods get to moderate subjectively, even on something as easily identifiable as on-topic as this, will cause that license to spread to other things as well. Either the rules are absolute, or they are not.

Also, I don't think any of the rules are too much to ask. Post WHY your shit belongs there, because that's what the subverse is all about.

I know it's not my call but again, I think appropriate flair is more fitting than removal.

Do you want to give us license to subjectively enforce the rules?

Well I would like that but it's unrealistic isn't it.
