there's been no formal vote on whether shared accounts come under this rule or not.

There has however been a formal vote on whether it is acceptable for admins to remove comments they think have been made by trolls, which was put down by ziq themself!!

What formal vote? This isn't pretend parliament - We appoint admins we trust to take care of spam like this. I'm not waiting 48 hours for everyone to vote about whether spam is spam when my thread is being hijacked to attack me again.

the votes in /f/meta

It isn't spam though, these are user comments and now you're only calling it spam to avoid the use of the word troll, which isn't mentioned in the tos

If you think trolling should be in the tos then perhaps you could raise that?

This isn't a tos issue. People abusing the anon accounts to engage in petty personal attacks, trolling and malicious disinfo don't get a right to 'democracy'.

Throwaways and anon accounts don't have voting rights in f/meta. If they're misusing the accounts, admins have all the leeway they need to put a stop to it.

The anon accounts are a privilege, not a right.

The anon accounts shouldn't even be allowed to talk about meta issues here. Fuckin cowards.
