The irony of someone who supports physical_removal, crying about having their sub removed. It's your own ideology come to life! You should therefore support my actions. But that irony aside...
There has been plenty of discussion about why, ad nauseum.
"didn't feel like talking to a guy like you."
"didn't feel like talking to a guy like you."
Pretty certain I never said anything like that.
Physical removal is removed for advocating violence ("Let's throw gays and communists out of helicopters, so to speak." being a central meme), and coontown is also removed for advocating violence. ("Black people are just the worst and shouldn't exist, and we should probably hang them" being a central meme)
You seem more upset you can't set up little mod fiefdoms than you actually are upset about your information being limited.
The issue has been explained to you. The community doesn't really support you. What are you even trying to accomplish here? If you want to hate black people and gays so bad that you need to make a whole sub about it, just go to voat. Seriously.
We have banned 5 subs in 16 months, so this idea it's "worse than reddit" in terms of censorship is just laughable.

Extremism hates non-extremism, no surprise there.
Just for the record, saidit has banned literally 5 people total in 16 months out of 8,000 users, other than obvious ad spammers who never respond. So this idea it's "even worse than reddit" in terms of censorship is just silly.
Meanwhile they have "ProtectVoat" brigades that will censor you to -20 if you say anything out of line with their site culture, ensuring you never get to use your downvotes yourself, because it requires a user score of 100 to be able to use.
The post on voat is basically propaganda, to beg people to keep them from leaving the extremist echo-chamber they've created, imo. Not surprising at all. Let's just ignore them, and keep making this place better and better. The best way to progress forward is to build something so good that it makes the old ways obsolete.

Awesome. Hilarious he did that, I'm not surprised.
Meanwhile, I'm getting followed around by a raddle mod who creates an account and posts a script on reddit every time I promote saidit anywhere on reddit, it's great. Seems to also give me like 8 downvotes. I'd report it to reddit admins (who might care about the vote brigading, which I've seen people banned for, but they probably won't care) but I don't want to draw any unnecessary admin attention to my account on reddit because that usually doesn't end well for me.

This one time I was in Paris visiting, riding the subway, and some 14 year old guy tried to pickpocket my wallet out of my front jeans pocket. He failed, I grabbed his hand as he was pulling it out. I was so shocked, I think he was too. We just kind of stood awkwardly for another stop or two. He didn't want to run away because it would admit guilt, and I didn't confront him because I was like 19 and never had anything like that happen to me before and was just kind of stunned lol.

With all the reddit users coming over lately, I wanted to share something. This is what happened to Voat. by Alduin in propaganda

Yup, I was there when voat was called whoaverse, I watched it all happen and you're absolutely right!
This is why user participation is important. This is why the pyramid of debate is important. This is why everyone who truly cares about saidit needs to voice their opinions and vote when they see something insightful or fun.
We have lots of defenses against what happened to voat, but primary among them is community.
The second thing we have going for us is no downvote. So the dedicated minority group cannot re-shape the site at large to their own desires nearly as easily. It got much worse as well after voat added restrictions where if you've been downvoted you cannot downvote others. It sped up the echo-chamber feedback-loop effect and let these extremists take over the mainstream culture of voat much more quickly. Now a dissenting voice of reason stands out like a sore thumb, and is downvoted to hell.
Saidit doesn't have these locking-out features because we don't have downvotes, and we're careful to avoid "improvements" to the algorithm that actually just speed up the feedback loop that creates an echo-chamber culture. Furthermore one group cannot brigade another, because there is no downvote, and also they must abide by the pyramid of debate or be banned from saidit. So the only remaining way to "brigade" is to argue one's point rationally.
Thirdly, and perhaps most importantly, the admins actually care. This site used to be called antiextremes.com, specifically referencing avoiding the extremes of reddit (censorship) and voat (far-right). It's literally our declared mission to avoid becoming voat, even right in our original name.
The reason reddit went bad is because the admins turned a blind eye (or perhaps were paid to) while brigading and astroturfing groups took it over, subreddit by subreddit.
Voat however failed because the admins just let whoever take it over, as you pointed out. They had no ideological backbone, no pyramid of debate, no nothing. Just an empty space for anyone who has enough free time to go absolutely nuts and create their own echo chamber. And that's exactly what happened.
But at saidit, we will actually will learn from their failures and try our best to avoid them.
Fourthly, saidit has open modlogs available in any sub under the list of mods, it says "moderation log". Anyone can click it and see everything every mod has ever done. Voat and reddit hide this information for mods only. This transparency adds a LOT of accountability. No more secret user deletions and secret mod coups.
Fifthly, we're run by donations. Not advertiser revenue or big secret investors. This means we have zero incentive to get rid of certain messages to please our advertisers and investors, because we have none other than community donations. We do not plan to ever change this funding model because saidit is run for the community, not for profit.
So you can see our approach is multifaceted, and we think we have a very good chance at avoiding the fate that befell voat. It won't be easy, but I believe we can do it.

Then sane comments that call out the nonsense are downvoted:
Voat is overrun with shills, and white supremacists who can't tell they're surrounded by shills. Voat has a lot of free speech, but very little moral backbone despite all the grandstanding they do. I guess that's what happens when you let white supremecist neo-nazis literally take over your site and run it for their own benefit. They'll cheer on murder as long as the people killed have the skin color and religion they don't like.
This is why voat can't be the next reddit. This is why we had to build saidit, to give people a 3rd option, because one didn't really exist. Free information for those who aren't completely lost to extremist ideology. Which is why this site used to be called antiextremes.com back in the day
