I don't agree with your decision. While the witch hunt is quite stupid, and it is true that many wanted her gone because of her ideals, I don't think She is fit to be a mod. She is unprofessional and disrespectful, and made lots of bad decisions, like blindly following Rule 1, even for posts with hundreds of comments. She also deleted comments and posts for "Soapboxing", even when it clearly wasn't.

I welcome She as a user, I am against the witch hunt and think that people shouldn't be discriminated because of their ideals, but I don't think She is fit to be a mod.

Which is again the problem- the same problem here. Blindly following rules without questioning rules. Always question rules and do what is right rather than what is written.

A major part of the problem back on reddit was the admins deciding which mods and communities deserved to be the center of the site. That's how guys like davidreiss666 end up running the whole damn show.

The way this is working out is better. /v/askvoat has no default status, so it won't show up on the topbar, and they'll have to work for their subscribers just like /v/askgoat

If you don't like her, vote with your feet. A couple of hundred of other voaters have already.

If you've ever tried to grow a small sub (which I'm actually trying to do with /v/howto), you know that it's damn hard to make up for an early advantage where everybody was just flat out defaulted into membership of another one. It's a hell of a head start. What are your suggestions for actually gaining the kind of visibility that months as a default bought askvoat?

If you sit on @PuttItOut side, it is true that /u/she does not violate any rules given at subverse request. However there are "WAYS" to workaround this.

"Site-wide Policy" change. Currently voat has no "site-wide policy" or anything at all. Now @PuttItOut and @Atko can start to define site-wide policy and apply it in matter of times. Some rules can start as subjective, then redefined into something more objective as it progress. Say that if they apply the following rules: "Involving other organization outside voat for specific matters without authorization from administrator will result in severe punishment". That rules itself can be applied to strip the ownership.

Do you really want them to change rules so that a specific person can't mod? That won't end well.

Well FPH is a Hate subverse. Askvoat is a serious subverse for discussion. if she sees a question she doesn't like she'll just delete it because of no question mark or soapboxing.

AskVoat is a core subverse. Many people from reddit will look for that sub for similar discussion. Having mods that reflect the community are in our best interests. Not a whiny child who deletes anything she disagrees with. FPH is a fringe subverse that doesn't matter at all. This is all less of an issue now that AskVoat is no longer default, but people will still go looking for it.

But FPH isn't a default.
