@PuttItOut

This is a good point, can we get a clear definition of brigading so people can make sure they don't do it?

Yes, I will provide more info on this before I initiate any further bans for this reason.

It is not my intention to ban anyone but those that are abusing the system for malicious reasons.

Much appreciated, I think the key difference between us and the people who use and run Reddit/Twitter/FB etc.. is that we will set a rule and follow it. We don't use secret rules, secret judgements and shifting goalposts.

Spam

I think @SaneGoatISwear is in clear violation of the voat user agreement regarding spam, just in this thread, just in replies to your comment I'm replying to. As such, and accordingly for violations of this user agreement, this users account should be considered for suspension or termination - as well as for "any other reason you choose" as outlined in the user agreement. It is justifiable considering such an egregious, clearly defined, and intentional violation of these Terms of Service.

You may not post any graphics, text, photographs, images, video, audio or other material that we deem to be junk or spam.

Your access to Voat

Without advance notice and at any time, we may, for violations of this agreement or for any other reason we choose: (1) suspend your access to Voat, (2) suspend or terminate Your Account, and/or (3) remove any of your User Content from voat.

Fair enough. There are some users who I downvote a hell of a lot, so I'd like to see this myself. Whatever rule you make I'll stick to it.

One more possible loophole you may have missed: Old comments can currently be upvoted but not downvoted. It might be better if the moritorium on downvoting affects upvoting too.

It needs to be VERY CLEARLY DEFINED. Reddit uses this as justification to ban anyone they dislike because nobody knows what brigade is.

For example, I lost one reddit account after some dude spammed hundreds of comments to me and I downvoted them from his userpage instead of each thread. I don't think any sane person would consider voting on a reply to your comments to be brigading.

it's not defined, it's secret, and there are no ban logs for this.

it's entirely closed source, the code is not on git.

this is 100% reddit.

you're just flooding the complaint economy. When you complain about everything complaining means less, you seem to always have a problem with everything he does so why should @puttitout take your opinion into consideration if you're never going to be happy?
