Man, I'm confused. You say that you're trying to avoid controversy. OK. But this post, and the post before made be fact check alien, are IMO controversy bait. In the last one, there's a clear tendency to talk about users. In this, you quoted this timeline which contains, in the most, "user whoever did this". I admire your efforts on voat, this is not a personal critic. One day we exchanged some comments here, and you said that this place would be a safeguard in the case askvoat gone full memetard. Man, being honest, I'm disappointed. Ban me if you want, but now

Can't you see the pattern? The cult of celebrities, the little groups pushing their little agendas, the little schemes, the drama, who goes to the wall? PLEASE, STOP!

This subverse can be much more than this.

It's drama only when people with opposing views are voicing their opinions, but when I voice my opinions then it's crucial thing that needs to be said!

What @Nurdoidz means to say is he's probably buddies with fact checking alien guy and he didn't want us to come in here with all of our FACTS making his boy look bad. Still never got an explanation or apology for my ban.

"Controversy bait" only in the sense people disagree with this massive attitude against @She and advocating equivalent of /b/tard anarchy (what few are). Why are you blaming people for spending so much time and effort investigating and looking into what is, obviously, a big problem?

You say you're disappointed, but look what we really did. A bunch of us got together to investigate, we compiled days and days of individual research and effort, and all to seriously discuss this problem...and you want us to stop?

What exactly do you think serious discussion is?

About your last question, it should not be personal drama, this I'm sure. If you want to discuss moderation and the role of mods, get rid of all this "he did this, she did that". But it looks that you don't want to talk about moderation, rules and roles. This is (always IMO) loaded with personal feelings and a desire of vengeance. It looks like you people are trying to prove that you were right, "the other side" were wrong. I'm not for witch hunting or finger pointing of any user. And yes, I want you to stop. This is my wish. Because I don't want a polarized voat. Of course, my wish is just my wish. This is why I said please. But unfortunately, I'll have to block this sub if this continues. Do you know what I have blocked? Hate subs. Loli subs. Extreme subs.

I'm trying to convince you that being a bit more moderated and stopping the counter witch hunt is more effective. I'm trying to say that your slowly becoming the image of what you're trying to fight. Think a bit about it. You will never control what other people do, and when you use very strict rules trying to do it, and you blindly follow these rules, you become a machine. Do you see how all of this could be avoided if one freaking post did not have been deleted? The only important thing in trying to say here is don't radicalize in response to radicals, because it's a death spiral.
