Permission to ban voat trolls please? [Banned] i.imgur.com

Submitted by ziq in meta (edited )

2 people in particular that are linking to imgoat (voat's image service) and obsessing over a fake antifa twitter feed that conveniently mirrors everything they say minutes later with screenshots in some kind of shitty double-troll satire attempt.

See the linked image if you need more convincing.

Their attempts are so lame and predictable. These fascists have no brain.

They've gotten to the point where they don't break any rules but just spam the site with bullshit to dilute the overall quality and get us all talking about them. I wouldn't normally want to ban people sitewide for this shit, but it was disrupting the whole front page.

/u/RussianWikiRTleaks convinced me that they might not be a troll, so they can't be that lame. Then again, I am someone who fell into a scam while already thinking it was probably a scam beforehand…

How did you get on to the sub? They claimed to have made it private. Are you infiltrating Voat?

Want to make sure everyone is on the same page.

If we're not democratic, we're no different than reddit.

Neither of them have violated any ToS rules so I can't ban them without permission.

I think if you can confirm that they have come with intentions to troll and disrupt, then the whole community should be behind you banning them.

TBH I thought SML's post history was a little weird but it didn't set off really glaring red flags. But I also haven't been snooping around outside of Raddle (I haven't even been to Reddit in a few weeks) to know the kind of shit they're planning.

The twitter feed they kept linking to was the red flad with that one. The twitter kept posting screenshots of everything the user said minutes after they said it.

There's no such thing as 'official antifa' anyway, so twitter isn't going to do shit if fake antifa accounts are reported to them. Both the user and the twitter account keep reporting on each other's moves. The whole thing feels like a big troll.

They also used an url shortener for no apparent reason and from their first comment seeded doubt about raddle; suggesting we were 'infiltrated' by cops and fash.

Ah, I kept seeing Twitter mentioned but I never looked at what account was being talked about. I thought the police comment was ignorance about police interaction with leftists. I didn't see the URL shortener until after this thread. That's some nefarious shit.

Same for me; but I'm the type of person who's such a pushover that I've gotten scammed while strongly suspecting a scam.

The vast majority of users agree with banning them.

Uh, what? Pretty sure it's not, but even if it was, what's supposed to be bad about that?

happysmash27 wrote

Eh, I think we should wait for direct evidence myself; the posts I see on their acounts just don't seen incriminating enough. Did they delete things?

You think thete's nothing suspicious about them wanting to use voat's image host to 'overload' them? Lol.

So voat fascists are openly saying on their site that they're posting imgoat images here to 'trigger' us AS this fool is posting imgoat images here (and no one else is), but it's all just a big coincidence.
