I agree, though in the future I think this should be decided by the subscribers of the sub in question in the future.

I.e. a poll like we just had, but where only subscribers to /v/niggers since X date would be able to participate.

That way a community is protected even if the wider voat community is against it for whatever reason.

Problematic in cases of a hostile takeover. Once that rule was in place they would coordinate to subscribe some period of time before actually taking over.

The only issue I see with that is for instance in this case a lot of the subscibers to v/niggers were banned. How the site owners handled things now lets those that were part of the old v/niggers userbase vote on what to do. I especially like that even those that did not like v/niggers were still pushing for the sub to stay up. That really speaks volumes about how much the main userbase on Voat cares about free speech.

But if you do that then it's possible the majority of subscribers are actually those trying to deceive.

Good to see you around fish!

Fuck that. We handled it accordingly, and cam be trusted to do so. There's no need to segregate your weird selves. We aren't children.

Please let this set a precident for Voat in the future.

What if the community voats against free speech next time?

What if they vote for Hillary Clinton?

Is that when we nuke the site from orbit, just to make sure?

Thought of this too. The banned "mods" can create their own board if they want. It's so obvious they were isolated incidents that got paid off or were compromised.

Exactly, that's why I said #2 is the best option. Eventually it would have died, became inactive then switched to someone that cares.
