"No social media" should not be a rule. Mainstream media is almost always corrupt and social media is pretty much the only valid source of news today, if you ask me. I don't want /v/news to only allow news from sites like CNN. If we do that, the battle is lost. Mods, please remove this rule and let the community votes decide what is and what is not newsworthy. You should only remove blatant spam.

I realize your post is 2 months old now, but - what is Rule 4? I just had a post deleted due to it.

Now there's some good advice.
Fuck the mods.

If we got laid more, we probably wouldn't be such assholes.

Yes, /v/news is the most heavily censored default subverse. It needs to be addressed.

To be fair he @unruly is just looking for the rules to be enforced consistently. My point here is that these rules need to be reworded and/or removed/made user-vote-enforced. Better to have a few garbage submissions get downvoted than legitimate news get deleted.

When a twitter feed is the fastest news source for a subject, and it's archive.is are called to be deleted cause "no pictures" it's kind of fucked up.

@unruly had a lengthy discussion on one of my postings in /v/news that blew up. Lots a bunch of karma from it too.

Holy Shit, that is pretty fucking blatant censorship. One of the reasons I thought we all left reddit. Well, what do you have to say for yourselves @typo, @amyacker?

News does not start with news outlets any more than history starts with textbooks. Both are built upon the output of those who record their observations. Such output can and should include images and even editorialised titles. And like it or not, social media are the clay tablets of our era. For moderators to presume to have the prescience needed to judge what should become part of humanity's collective history is ludicrous.
