It shouldn't be a popularity contest. Mods make the rules. If the majority doesn't like the rules (and being enforced) the users should be able to take away those mods rights.

No, they shouldn't. They should leave and create their own sub.

Many of us disagree. Lets take a large sub like /News or/AskVoat. The large sub will automatically have an advantage over the new sub. I think there should be a way for the users of a sub voting a mod out if they are unhappy w that person. I think it should be subscribed users who are contributing members.

This isn't a valid option. Especially when a sub is a default. A new sub trying to compete for the same market with a default is not going to make it. Sorry but no, voting out mods needs to be an option.

Then the subverse naming shouldn't be bound to alphabets but rather given a random code or number. Squatting is a real problem and most of the good names are already taken.

Sorry but I disagree. If you look at the user agreement it states

Subverses may create their own rules and enforce them as they see fit, providing they do not violate the terms of this agreement. You agree that voat is not responsible for the actions taken or not taken by moderators.

If you don't like the rules a subverse has, go create a new one. "But it's too hard" Well no shit its hard, if the moderator really is acting corrupt then everyone will migrate to the new subverse.
