Sounds like a big workload for the admins. And if users are placed into these positions, they can become like Reddit powerusers.

Voat seems like it'd benefit from a benevolent philosopher king who has a massive amount of time on his hands. Failing that, a representative system of anti-spam mods I suppose, but that sounds like it'd be open to corruption about as quickly as it'd take users to realize they could only pretend to have the site's best interests in mind so that they could get elected.

Just make the spam confirm/deny log public. That way abuses of power are always visible if the community knows a user not to be spamming.

it doesn't have to be work for Admins. There could be a volunteer subvoat section where people could review cases.

Maybe volunteers who get a que of reviews at random to make sure they are being fair and not part of any clique.

Either way it takes a lot of "eyes" to make something like this happen. Maybe there can be a formula to judging content that can make it easier. For instance, comments that are primarily emotional in nature have less inherent value than objective statements.

I like this. You could probably look for # of keywords per words and the use of CAPS and !!!!!!!
