I sent the mods a PM letting them know that the Debate Pyramid was required for presence on /s/all / Saidit.

I wasn't aware that we had that policy but I like it. They did leave all, so thanks for that.

I didn't think it was official, but it follows on almost as a logical consequence to the rules we have.

Yeah it just reads like it's okay to not follow the pyramid if you delist from all. Everyone is supposed to be following the pyramid.

Here's the exact message I sent:

If you want to be on /s/all, please consider informing your userbase of the Debate Pyramid. Note that that's not the same as being PC; as you know, the language used is completely incidental to whether you're being nice to people.

But the Debate Pyramid is pretty much the only site rule, and you're liable to get banned / pulled off /s/all if people don't pay attention to it and keep posting low-tier content. That's not a free speech violation; it's a measure to prevent Voat II: Electric Boogaloo. It's not a threat; it's a prediction. (As you can see, I'm not an admin.) Don't take it personally, please.
