Since I had to look it up myself

This guys just spams loli shit. We need more gas.

Oh man this is such a tough one. I looked through his submissions, and all of them to v/gaming seem to be of a character from a game, and are generally just a woman in a bikini or revealing clothing, not as bad as the ones he posts to v/lolicon.

They were all tagged as nsfw and as far as I can tell he didn't break anything rules of the sub besides potentially spam. I think it comes down to intent. Did he mean to devalue the site by posting low quality content, or did he just want to share pictures that he enjoys? Personally he doesn't seem malevolent like some other users. But he could also be a bot because he just posts a lot of submissions and hardly ever comments, which is certainly grounds for a ban.

Perhaps we need more defined rules like what exactly spam is, what a bot is, etc. Maybe users can vote on an acceptable definition.

Even if he had meant to devalue the site that's not a bannable offense. What is shitposting? We can't ban people for our belief that we can know people's intent. We can ban them for what they do, against some clearly stated rules. If we don't like what someone does we can always change a rule.

Those who would sacrifice voat for some temporary moment of not being offended deserve neither.

The guy is a pedophile.

[–] VicariousJambi 10 points 4 points (+14|-10) ago 

Has this guy ever made one on topic post? Obviously the community doesn't like his content. They have judged it as spam and constantly down vote it. He hasn't changed. Banning him makes it so the users don't have to downvote him every single time.

Now the users don't have to deal with his bullshit anymore and he can still post his shit in the appropriate subs.

Doesn't seem worthy of a ban. Unless maybe he was farming CCP for vote manipulation.

But if it's only a ban from /v/gaming, then it's no big deal. I come to voat for content curation and demanding higher quality submissions from "default" subs is fine.

After looking over some of this guy's posts it seems he's a turd (or as @PuttItOut puts it, Noid).

Here's the issue, technically his posts are not against v/gaming rules, if v/gaming wanted to get rid of him out of annoyance they could restrict gaming fanart from being posted on there and instead be posted on another subverse like v/gamingfanart.

@PuttItOut I don't agree with banning this user, he didn't break any of the rules and I'd even say his posting habits are somewhat autistic as oppose to spammy but it's slippery slopes like this that turned Reddit into what it's become and why I left that content black hole.

If this becomes a precedent I can see this action being used for other excuses and bannings in the future.

Ultimately if other users don't like his content and personally see it as spam they should down vote it to Oblivion so you wouldn't even have to get involved. I know most users don't vote but hopefully this will encourage users to be more involved on that subverse.

Yes! I'm so glad he got the hammer.

[–] fusir 5 points 52 points (+57|-5) ago 

But don't you see the pattern. "I think it's good he got the hammer based on what kind of person he is." is the very premise of reddit censorship.

[–] antiliberalsociety 1 points 9 points (+10|-1) ago 

Have to disagree on this one. I fear a familiar pattern. First Voat "finds an angel" then the bans start rolling in. Is this the price of admission? Reddit did the same shit with "child porn is free speech" to trigger a mass support of bans, and now look at it. R Pongyang was just the preview.

[–] cantaloupe6 3 points 2 points (+5|-3) ago 

It's sounds vile and not relevant to gaming. It sounds like a deplatforming effort. Sometimes they attempt to agitate crazies, sometimes they try to post certain content. If it were just unpopular speech that's one thing, this sounds like something else.

[–] Artofchoke 23 points 0 points (+23|-23) ago 

I can't think of one person who earned it more. Fuck him. :)

[–] LilBrattyMkr 12 points 10 points (+22|-12) ago 

But there is a whole subverse of that loli shit. So technically, he posted shit in the wrong spot. Were there any warnings? Post this where it belongs or your gone? Straight out ban without a warning... I'm not so sure on this.

[–] VicariousJambi 10 points 21 points (+31|-10) ago 

He posts hundreds of sexual images of underage girls to a gaming sub and you think thats even remotely on topic? Theres a point where you just ban the fucker instead of having to have users downvote this one guy constantly.

[–] CameraCode 1 points 16 points (+17|-1) ago 

The question is are lewd pictures of characters from games on topic for v/gaming? From what I saw in his submissions, he didn't post loli shit in v/gaming, they all seemed to be older, non-nude characters. Is the problem the frequency of his posts, or is it the lewd images themselves? Perhaps v/gaming should make a rule for "no nsfw art" and a new sub can be made called v/gamingChicks or something like that.
