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.

are you paying attention?

he's giving you lip service.

he has no intention of telling anyone.

only the sjws that coded this coup with him get to know (fuzzy, kev, cynabuns, etc)

we now have secret rules, secret judgements.

are you not paying attention!??!?

Tying the negative CCP of deleted comments to accounts is one of the best ways we found to quickly kick spam accounts into the negatives. There is no reason to believe that feature is going anywhere.

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. We reserve the right to monitor Voat, and your use of the Service means you agree to such monitoring. At the same time, we do not guarantee we will monitor at all.

saying your opinion and pasting the user agreement doesn't make your opinion truth


still 100% being brigaded. you are the dumbest nigger on voat, you either fell for the sjw trap or you're in with the sjw or taken over by them and are being forced to do this against your will. either way, dumbest nigger on 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.

Nah, SpamGoatISwear actually has a point on some of this shit. It's only worth sticking with rules that are GOOD rules. For instance, I will not stop downvoting SpamGoat's spam just because his constant spamming ends up meaning he gets far more of my downvotes than anyone else these days. The rule could quite easily say you can only give 1 given person X% of your downvotes. I will not abide by that. I downvote as I see fit.

And I'll give this thread as an example of times when I don't downvote the SpamGoat, because his comments in this thread are highly relevant (for once).
