This is the thread, in which abusive mod "she" (who admin/founder Atko told to "calm her tits") is made the victim - even though she's the mod and the named users are just ... users. https://voat.co/v/SeriousDiscussion/comments/414766

Here's the reply from the banning mod: https://slimgur.com/image/LYT

@atko - Why are users being banned for ticky tacky shit? Something needs to be done about mod powers because this is already turning into reddit.

Patiently awaiting my banning from Serious Discussion. And maybe I can help a little: Put a splintered broom stick into your rectum @Nurdoidz. We came to Voat to avoid cancer mods like you, so GET LOST!!!

My Comment there:


If this continues, I will be forced to bill @She for the time I was required to spend discussing people who are defending her indefensible moderating of AskVoat. And for me, her political leanings didn’t matter because I hadn’t heard about She before this whole thing erupted.

First of all, take a look at this deletion by She:

@Survivorofthemeta I removed this post because it's title isn't asking a question "?" Please rephrase and submit again. Thanks!

A stupid moderating decision if there ever was one. If you catch it within the first minutes of submission, ok, but deleting an interesting discussion about off-the-grid living after it had gained many comments because of a missing "?" wtf???

And this wasn't the only bad moderating decision by She, take a look at all those deleted discussions at v/DeletedAskVoat (going only 3-4 days back). I thought we were through with this and I also got tired of this issue, but since people can't let it go, I'll continue to add more deletions over the coming days. Meanwhile you can browse the deleted submissions of AskVoat here.

And what makes her a bad mod in my mind is that this "?" rule is not set in stone handed down by the Voat Goat, but the mods probably copied it from Reddit. So it is disingenuous of She to say that she was forced to delete these posts because they do not contain a question mark. The mods made this stupid rule in the first place, and it was within their power to change it.

Yeah, that reply pissed me off. If this is going to be an 'ol boys club, I might was well find my way back to reddit/digg whatever.

better to get this sort of drama over with during the sites early days rather than having it fester up later.

@atko not trying to annoy you but this comment really gets me. The mods are already powertripping in a big way. This will be a slow creep but there is already a cabal.

I'm not sure if this is at all relavent. But...

It seems people get confused when thinking about what "witchhunting" actually is.

If someone does something that many people disagree with, then there will be uproar. When people protest about that someone's actions, people seem to think that's true witchhunting, but it's not really.

Witchhunting usually involves the needless/immoral/over-exaggerated attack of a person, where the attack is disproportional to the bad actions of the someone.

But when someone does something really bad, and people are not happy, that's not a witchhunt. That's simply many people disagreeing with you. It's usually a sign that you're wrong, or being an idiot.

People love to misuse words to defend themselves against unhappy masses.

Yup.

She wanted herself as Level 1 mod. When you want to grab power like that, expect scrutiny. The community didn't want that, and now a group of 4-5 girls/m'ladys are trying to stir as much shit as they can to prevent the very simple truth to come out.

As you can see, one of them even tries to use the fact that he's done development work for Voat as a reason he should have special rights. It's disgusting.

Nobody is invoking their first amendment rights. Most of us probably aren't Americans at all.

We are, however, speaking up against the abuse of mod power, which is against Voat's core principles.

Yeah, I agree. It's funny that the things we warned about with this little group of butthurt SJWs is exactly what they're doing. They're proving us right by their very actions right now.

It's like ... I don't even have to do anything further. We proved our point.
