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.

You disagree because it's too much work to build up a community? Do you think all these communities started with all these subscribers? Of course not. Moderators put time and hard work to build up a community and to have that taken away simply due to the paranoia that they may one day be corrupted is just shitty.

They'll have an advantage that the mods worked hard to build, but not an absolute advantage. This was more of an issue on reddit where the admins skewed the sub-market by appointing defaults.

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.

I don't think defaults exist anymore.

/r/trees and /r/ainbow prove that migrations work. As does voat istelf.

Sorry, but voting out mods would be a disaster.

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.

Meh. It's not hard to come up with a new name. And the list of subverses presented to new users are listed by activity, not name.
