If you go over to the mod and rule discussion subverse, you'll see a very open and fluid discussion about it being to also curtail soapboxing. So don't tell people what the rules "were" or "were not" when the discussions about what they were are entirely fucking public.

Excuse for lack of English of rule 1

Was there someone who didn't understand the intention of that rule? That's grasping at straws.

Valid response to soapboxing that was not against the rules

It's a sub called "Ask Voat". It's not called "Talk about whatever; Then Ask 'What Do You Think'". The poster did not have a question, they wanted to push their agenda.
