Rule #3:

Must be new or newly relevant to today.

I think today has brought this video new relevance.

Hear, hear. Authoritarianism can fuck right off.

To be fair, there are some subs that only work right because of rules insanity. Take Polandball for example, I still only visit the Reddit version because the weird and complex rules and approved submitters only are there for a reason -- to prevent it from degenerating into unfunny, lame rhetoric the same way rage comics and Dolan did.

But by all means, this kind of thing should not apply to the entire site of Voat, or Reddit for that matter. I just don't agree with these ideas going around like "Remove moderators from all subs" or "Subs shouldn't be allowed to have rules, they infringe on my free speech." because that screws with all kinds of niche subs that rely on nipping shitposts in the bud. I will be no more fond of Voat than of Reddit if things go this way because the two sites will just represent two different extremes, with no room in the middle for actual sanity.

It could've been posted as TIL: Elon Musk believes PayPal is screwed.
