Please keep rule #5. Voat is overrun by political/idealogical content, and it is pretty much a circlejerk. The moment the rule is deleted we will not have any pretty pictures here, only pictures supporting political agendas.

I do believe that having certain places for only certain type of content, enforced by moderator deletion, is beneficial to health of the whole page. Relying only on majority vote has two effects I would like to avoid.

  1. Easier-to-consume content overshadows elaborate
  2. Political majority agree with will be everywhere. Voat would be like SRS, where there is only one topic to talk about, and only one allowed version.

For example /v/showerthoughts was ruined by allowing political content.
