Eggnogg has a group of cancer-mod supporters that actively brigade any post mentioning him. It seems they have multiple accounts that can upvote him and downvote others.

About 6 of them it seems.

You can only up/downvoat once on your IP unless they're using a proxy of course. I doubt they care that much though since all eggy has to do is post to shitholes about the 'witch hunts' PV does and he'll be upgoated to the max.

It is indicative of brigading.

  1. Make noise - more noise. And people, you need to help. Kevdude can't do this alone.

  2. Get Level 1 mods to remove Eggnogg. PM them politely with your grievances. L1 mods are Atko and Puttitout. He/She has been a problem for a long time now, acting directly against Voat's principles.

  3. See step 1.

One thing is for sure: @Eggnogg - you will be removed. This can take a short time or it can take a long time, but Voaters know the community has the power here; not SRS mods. We learned this once, it'll happen again.

Here's an image of how quickly this was downvoted: Some pretty neutral and innocent posts received 7-8 downvotes in a very short time as did the thread itself:

@Atko and @PuttitOut are you going to stand on your hands while a mod is allowed to censor content on your sub and be backed by an arrogant manner and a downvote posse behind them? I think you both do a pretty good job but you are creating a bad situation and precedent on Voat, if you allow this to happen.

Almost impressive - well, at least it makes it easy to tell when school lets out.

The only real way to solve the problem is to be able to call on the admins to deal with these kinds of mods. Otherwise, there's not much we, as users, can do.

I hope that @eggnogg gets removed from power or stops enforcing his own personal bias.

It would be nice to see these kinds of issues disappear, but they probably won't. We just need more active and involved admins.

Also, the downvoats are from people who don't like the thought that every one of our mods aren't perfect.

Thank you for adding content to the site, @OhBlindOne - I hope that you don't stop.

I was going to say go ask Kevdude, but it's you asking! You've been there for us, want us all to send him a PM? Just politely let him know we know what he's doing and to please stop or we'll work harder.

Seems like the only thing we can do is to shame them into giving in. Usually works.

Edit: downvotes for advocating figuring out the issue? Helps show that eggnogg is an asshole w/ an ass hole following (or 10 alts). You helped make up my mind, thanks.

Thanks for being honest. Does the fact that a lot of people think I'm an ass hole somehow make how @eggnogg is behaving acceptable?

[–] kevdude [S] 10 points 11 points (+21|-10) ago 

Maybe. Or PM @puttitout or @atko? They are the level 1 mod of that subverse.

Will do, good sir. I'll send em a PM asking whats up before I hit up putitout/ I unsub. I take it you've already tried the nice way of dealing with it?

I got a reply from him:

Hi mate. I gave up explaining why I remove a post until they implement a feature that lets me remove it with an explanation. The reason is some serious downvote brigading that often leaves me in the negatives and limited to 3 comments a day. As my CCP goes up I may go back to more comments. If you want to discuss any particular removal please go ahead. For instance I removed this story because it was submitted with an editorialized title by a user who had been warned against this in the past. In brief, you're free to say whatever you want about the article you submit in the comments, but not in the submission headline. I've also removed a large number of shit-tier blogs that copy-paste articles from elsewhere. As the sub gets bigger we get more of those. We actually have a rule against blog posts altogether but the community reacts pretty violently when we do that so the compromise is that we'll allow them as long as the author puts some actual effort into the post and doesn't just copy-paste the news from BBC and ads a racist title.

Also I never remove any comments and the discussion in a removed thread can go on - the thread just won't appear in the list of threads of the subverse.

Every user on Voat that hated the mods on reddit should downvote this motherfucker until he learns his lesson.

If mods want to render their opinions in a big sub, they're free to do so, but as a user/voater.

Otherwise, mods, and in this case, @eggnogg, needs to lay off with the opining and just perform their janitorial duties of getting rid of spam. This is exactly the reason that many left Reddit, and this is exactly the behavior that's going to drive people back there. @Atko has made it pretty clear that mod-bullshit won't be tolerated.

@Eggnogg, why do you have such a burning desire to piss-off the users of v/worldnews and make it your little fiefdom? I ask you this in all seriousness.

What I have been told is that you must sever the head or destroy the brain. Anything else may slow them down but it won't stop them.

@atko can IP ban @eggnogg, right?
