Thanks Atko, I had my fill of arrogant modding over at Reddit. Good to see you care about the users here

They did this to themselves, they had every chance to address user concerns but chose to make a silly sticky and spam the sub.

Good on @atko. Hopefully he keeps this stance when it comes to idiots who'll try to turn voat into reddit.

Like Atko said, it sucks it came to this. But it's good we have admins that care to sort out the mods that don't.

Wow, just when you thought mods couldn't get more pathetic.

So they tried to false flag themselves in order to increase power? Usually something like this would make me angry but I almost feel bad for them, I was cringing the whole time reading those posts. How embarrassing.

Obviously we can't get rid of mods altogether but something must be done. All drama comes from mods, all trouble comes from mods looking for it. Mods do more harm than good for their subs.

Setting some very important precedent here, Atko. Awesome. It's like these people don't understand what a moderator on Voat should be - a kind janitor. Nothing more.

I'd rather read a little pseudoscience and figure out for myself what stands on its merits than have censorship.

After all, strict, heavy-handed moderation is an oxymoron.

Sometime things get labeled as pseudoscience because it goes against the accepted narrative. Scientist are just as susceptible to bias as everyone else. I'm reminded of when plate tectonics was discovered or when lobotomies were popular.
