Results are in and the Rogue Moderator has been removed.
Below are the percentage counts of what Voat decided was the correct course of action**:
- 87% (The Purge)
- 11% (Free Market)
- 2% (Dissolution)
**Note that this is a very rough count as I simply looked for numeric values in parent comments.
Personally, I’m quite impressed with the consensus on this issue. It means that we understand the bigger picture when it comes to protecting the values we hold. This gives me hope that Voaters want to protect all speech, not just the speech in which they find agreeable.
I was prepared to follow through with Option 1 from the beginning, but I’m glad we used this opportunity to get feedback.
I also thought the Anon post allowed us to more freely voice our opinions and we might continue to use them for decisions in which the community should be involved with (which is most of them btw).
As for this subverse, I will handle the hand off shortly after I look into subverse transfers and see if any are valid.
Later this week Voat will be adding a few new site wide rules in order to handle this exact situation and hopefully a few others to help in related scenarios.
We will propose new rule changes before any additional transfers occur, new anon sticky will be posted tomorrow to get feedback.
