A user with +45 CCP can only comment 10 times per hour. Amalek has brought 3 different means of censorship to our attention before and each time been mindlessly ridiculed as a liar by both SRS and the PV mods. Maybe we should listen this time. I don't really see what the point of mocking him was when he pointed out our posts can be kept <2 upvotes to keep them invisible to the Hot algorithm, that getting a single downvote can make us unable to comment or PM until somebody upvotes our (now impossible) commenting, that we can be site-wide banned without any stated reason even when our posts/comments are popular, or that shadowbanning on Voat is a thing.

So he can spam more? He's the very reason most people support account restrictions. Surely you can see that. He would just post non-stop and drown out everyone else. Why are you supporting that?

Why are two different /v/RealmOfAngmar posters commenting on the same comment? Nice brigade you have going there. The fact that you co-mod /v/politicalnews with all the PV mods (who censor like crazy in their own subs) kind of goes to show that PV is just its own brigade. The same opinion gets 29 upvotes when I'm not being brigaded, so strange! And look who's downvoting me there (and saying there's no such thing as shills on Voat), the mods of PV!

The account restrictions obviously aren't stopping him from spamming, so what is your point exactly? I'm talking about regular people like us who happen to have unpopular opinions and, say, have their first experience with Voat being downvoted one time and thereby muzzled completely. Would you even try to make another account after that experience?

Can I go spam your subs? You're cool with that, right?

He remakes posts after the last one gets hidden. If SRS wasn't hiding his posts he wouldn't do this. I personally wouldn't do this but he has anger problems and I can see why he does it. I trust him to be the most truthful about censorship the way I trust RT to be the most truthful about negative aspects of America and CNN to be the most truthful about negative aspects of Russia. This content is relevant to this sub, so if you're talking about "what if he spammed your sub /v/OrthodoxJudaism with stuff about Jews" then I would remove all but the highest-scoring of the identical posts and upvote the remaining one. Since my sub isn't currently being brigaded by SRS I seriously doubt he would be downvoted, especially since anti-Semitic content actually does pretty well there generally.
