I find this 10 CCP crap for posting very annoying. I'm a new user, i have 3 CCP, i want to make some submissions of my own. I'm not a super involved user, so the stupid site is forcing me to crap post that i don't really care about just to get these 10 points. On top of that, people can down vote you if they don't like your politics -_- ..... That's a real concern, since this homogenizes the users. Seriously, it's should be the local mods that should be more responsible for spam control. And lol, i managed to start a section of my own, but i can't post in it....

To summarize. 10CCP limit is too draconian, and this homogenizes the users. You can't spam control with just one stupid rule.

These reddit brigades could up voat farm. For this to work, there needs to be other factors like some kind of weighted sum. Off the top of my head, minimum account age, submission variety, banishment by certain moderators, what the content of comments are, and a voat tribunal.

Edit : or be a mod for popular subvoats who have already proven to follow the spirit and intent to voat, and a limit, and mother fucking goat sacrifices.

Edit 2: since it's probably impossible to retroactively determine which accounts up voats originate from, moving forward, account age should factor into the weight of an up voat, and and the amount of recent activity.

They could definitely Upvoat Farm, but that would be an easy process to observe. A new user netting hundreds of CCP in a weeks time is very indicative of farming. Of course, Age should also be a factor in this as well, so multiple parameters should be incorporated. This would prevent Spammers from growing new accounts rapidly to get to the Super Goat level.

I'm not so keen on age influence the weight of an upvoat or downvoat since it would allow some of the oldest accounts to target users with unpopular opinions quite rapidly, but the idea of an account being at least one year to two years old with a high level of CCP points would seem a reasonable candidate for Super Goat status.

Edit: As for the Tribunal part, I think that perhaps the Super Goat users would be able to cast a vote on the decision to restrict the Accused and let the final verdict rest in the hands of the Admin. I could see that becoming a total pissing contest where people get drawn into a kangaroo court system having to defend their opinions rather than dealing with the accusation of being a Spammer. If that Tribunal is based exclusively on the concept of finding spammers or people who are abusing the system, than that could definitely be effective.
