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.

Not only that, many people get banned quickly in a hostile takeover. Just look at people who were banned from v/niggers for racism. The takeover account could just start mass banning before anyone realizes what's going on and then leave only his shills in the group.

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.

That's me. Subs exist like stereotypes exist. For reasons

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.
