As i said in a showerthoughts submission; this is going to keep happening because there are people ideologicially or finanically committed to ruining the free speech ideal of this website.

It is imperative that admins maintain their neutral stance that is protecting the integrity of the website, and it is doubly imperative that mods treat their subverses with respect.

Powermods have ruined many websites, it is only a matter of time before the shills, SRS, goons, etc weasel their way into positions of power.

After all, if these anti-free speech folk had a logical argument then they would have subverses with a large userbase that agrees with them. On the contrary, most users here are former redditors, 4chan anons, and so on. We dont take kindly to people trying to screw us over a second time.

Doesnt matter if the subverse is antithetical to your moral sensibility, the point of the web and this website in particular should be open discussion of that which is acceptable to discuss and share under the law thats governs the website.

Thats all, thanks my fellow voaters for maintaining their communities.

I don't think it is some big conspiracy, I think it is just a couple fucktards with hundreds of alts each that think Voat is their playground and they get joy out of annoying the normal users.

There needs to be a non-coercion way to handle rogue mods. If users themselves can "unmod" a mod from their perspective it would go a long way towards blunting their power to subvert the system and cause chaos.

For instance if there was a checkbox next to each mods name in the mod list that I could uncheck. If they're unchecked then I can see all the submissions that particular mod spiked and all the comments they've tried to get rid of. They pretty much stop being a mod of the subvoat from my perspective.

Then maybe if enough people abandon a mod it's considered a vote of no confidence and they're unchecked by default for non-subscribers or new subscribers for that subvoat.
