No Mod should have the authority to preemptively ban a genuine user == spam is the exception.


I made his ban list and never commented in his sub: https://voat.co/v/environment/modlog/bannedusers. I was going to comment on a post by @NeedleStack, https://voat.co/v/environment/comments/1082131, and learned I was banned when my comment didn't stick. [Edit to add: As seen elsewhere: I agree with NeedleStack's post-- please separate the cancermod @henrycorp from other users' contributions]

I'm not sure preemptively banning spam accounts is feasible either. I'm obviously not a spammer and yet, there I am on the ban list.

Spam is pretty obvious and we scrub and ban when we come across it, which is how it should stay.

All bans should be earned, not just attributed to something you say elsewhere.

Every time a group downvotes you they're censoring your opinion. This place is not "censorship free". More like "direct censorship is discouraged".

Ban lists for spam should be global and managed by admins, not mods.

The Admins are too busy making the site work and don't have time (yet) to babysit the spam. This is partily how our downvoting of crap and upvoting of better stuff floats it to the top.
