I've had enough of this!

This is the second time this particular sub has been hijacked with malicious intention.

Voat will not stand for this behavior, even if it is against a sub that is a thorn around Voat's head and literally hurts our public image. We debated letting this sub die out to help Voat's image, but it is against our principles to allow for this to happen. Hence we've acted.

I've purged all mods on this sub.

I don't lean any way, that way I never risk falling on my face.

Free speech has always been a liberal value. (Note: I did not say "leftist.")

It has only been in the internet age, and only the past few years that conservatives have picked up the mantle (and only in certain areas btw).

These censors (I'm looking at you Reddit) are either conservative (as in the mass domain purge at r-politics) or paranoid partisans (aka Democrats). They are definitely not liberals.

You don't just take away the free speech element of liberal and hand it to conservative based on some short-term fluke of history. This reversal so totally confuses the concepts as to remove all meaning from the words -- and that means we can no longer communicate.

I read through this thread yesterday. I have never been and would never go to the subverse in question, and would not even use the word except in unusual circumstances; but what happened to the subverse was absolutely wrong, and I am glad that @PuttItOut intervened. This is like the ACLU representing the KKK -- the concept is more important than what we think of the community.

I am still suggesting that the admins create a standard process for dealing with moderator abuses. :)

A devotion to freedom of expression is essential to creating a forum for all ideas to be discussed. Thank you!

I hate v/niggers and have blocked them. However, I completely stand behind their right to exist. Thank you for putting principles above politics.

I second that!
