It may be worth drawing attention to the rules in the user agreement that no one ever reads:

You agree to not intentionally jeopardize the health and safety of others or yourself.

You agree to not post anyone's sensitive personal information that relates to that person's real world or online identity.

You agree not to encourage harm against people.

You agree not to post any child pornography or sexually suggestive content involving minors.

As you use voat, please remember that your speech may have consequences and could lead to criminal and civil liability.

Subverses may create their own rules and enforce them as they see fit, providing they do not violate the terms of this agreement. You agree that voat is not responsible for the actions taken or not taken by moderators.

Moderating a subverse is an unofficial, voluntary position. We reserve the right to revoke that position for any user at any time. You may not perform moderation actions in return for any form of compensation or favor from third-parties. When you receive notice that there is content that violates this user agreement on subverses you moderate, you agree to remove it

User Agreement

Mods can remove off topic posts if they want, get over it.

That's the problem, Mods should only remove spam and let content speak for itself. If your sub gets over run with content you don't like, create a new one. Democracy is always better than dictatorship

Is "encourage harm against others" specific or...? So when I tell a crazy asshole to "when you go on a shooting at least kill CEOs and politicians rather than kids at a school" am I in violation of the TOS?

I don't really care, just curious. (that wasn't a direct quote, but the gist of the conversation)

You're exactly my point.

We have specific subs for specific purposes. People read specific subs for specific reasons so it is annoying to see posts that don't fit the sub. Mods are within their right to remove off topic posts. If you want a mix of a lot of things, then go to /v/all. If you want to post something, surely there is a sub that will accommodate it. There are always flexible subs just like this one (/v/whatever) ... besides even postings in small subs can get a lot of attention because it will hit /v/all

If you let everyone post anything anywhere there is no value to the subverses. When reddit first launched there was absolutely no categorization. Categorization is good. Small communities in different niches will grow and thrive by themselves. I'm sorry man but you just sound fucking pissy because you don't like having to think for half a fucking second. Grow up. Follow the rules, they're not that goddamn hard. The site is only going to be as good as it's members. If people come here and can't find what they're looking for, they move on. Let's just have some decency that we all want to see Voat succeed and just get on with it.

I'm sorry. 😳


[–] TheBrokenWorld 2 points 6 points (+8|-2) ago 

Agreed, people take this crap way too seriously.


[–] Tsugumori 2 points 5 points (+7|-2) ago 

I'm sorry if this isn't on topic for the thread but I really prefer some of my subs to be a little more strictly moderated. In things like /v/news I would really prefer that there was less clickbait tabloid shit.

This drivel needs to stop. The vast majority of moderators are doing a good job. They are taking their free time and using it to make browsing and posting to Voat easier for all of us. It's only the minority of mods that step past the line and we've seen how that works out for them. (Not fucking well)

I appreciate the work that mods do to keep our subverses clean and relevant. The mods of /v/gaming even arrange gaming nights on the weekends, pay for a teamspeak server open for everyone for anything, and run an irc.

Sorry for apologizing.
