Thank you. I hope this sub can maintain a good quality, loss of quality is not only present on voat but on reddit as well.

Do not attack other users. v/science is a forum for open discussion, not a forum assaulting/aggravating other users. There are plenty of subverses where you can attack other users, but v/science is not one of them.

Is this @mathgrunt's proposed rule that will enable him to nanny the comments? Seriously, what does "aggravate" mean? Look, you are setting standards for posting and in a science sub that makes sense. But you are not here to be the comment police. If users want to argue in the threads that is their business. Moderate spam and otherwise stay out of it.

Pseudoscience is just a blanket term the mods are gonna use to ignore/discredit information. Calling something Pseudoscience is the same thing as calling someone racist or conspiracy theorist. It has no value it doesn't add anything and its completely off topic. Its just a way that the moderators can facisly decided what content is in this community. When in reality this type of rule isn't needed because if there was any content bordering on the so called Pseudoscience the community would downvote it to hell and berate the fuck out of it. WE DO NOT NEED A NANNY HOLDING OUR HAND ON THE INTERNET GO BACK TO REDDIT YOU FASCIST.

Dude, calm down. Mods aren't here to be nannies or hold our hands. They're here to ensure the sub stays on topic.

If that was even remotely true they wouldn't be making up fascist rules FOR NO REASON. You and the mods need to go back to reddit. Most people who left reddit left it because the mods making up rules so they can control the content how they feel, and that is the exact reason for that rule. Have you seen once a post that that rule would apply to that the community hadn't already berated and downvoted? No you can't because its an unneeded fascists rule so the mods can pick and choose what they want because they feel the community doesn't do the job good enough already WHICH IS ENTIRELY NOT TRUE.

Mods are janitors, nothing more. Glorifying the position is the first step in letting the "power" get to your head.

They're here to clean up the shit stuck to the radiator in the bathroom, not dictate what is/is not on topic; after a sub becomes a certain size, that becomes our collective call.

This is good. it neatly slims down the contents of the discussion thread without missing much. I think one more point might be appreciated by the very anti censorship userbase though, something along the lines of "Links will not be removed because of political implications or associations, but such links must be to an actual study, not a political article based on one." A few months back we had some very heavy handed diatribes on race where the poster insisted that brief mention of population genetics were enough science to justify posting.

That's a good idea. I'll add it.

Rules in italics are a work in progress and require feedback

So your vague rule about "attacking" and "aggravating" is not italicized, meaning what? You intend to create "safe spaces" in the comments? Please explain.

Why are you looking to add more mods here? You already have 5. Are some inactive?

We're all inactive, I hardly have time to do this. More moderators means less work load.

Maybe you should consider not removing comments, and letting your users do what they're supposed to do.

I presume they probably needed mods 24 days ago, when this was posted.

@Atko @Puttitout these will be the proposed rules for your system subverse. The rules about attacking users and pseudo-science are particularly vague and open to mod abuse.

If you have instances of abuse from the mods of /v/science please show them. This sub is a thematic sub, that means that anything outside its scope is irrelevant/spam. Including pseudoscience and attacking other users.
