    No, I'm not. I'm talking about hiding actual posts once I've either read them to my satisfaction, or determined I'm not interested in them, making it much easier to manage my front page.

    I've been discouraged that decentralized Usenet has largely died off (aside from some hold-outs and some niche uses), while centralized services like social networking and reddit have taken off so much. This is a recipe for abuse.

    I'm confused, because your comment doesn't appear to match what I just read in one of my notifications here:

    Up and down voting
    You may have noticed the up and down vote on top of each snap and individual comments. You get one vote for any item (snap, contribution or comment) so use it wisely. Your vote is always completely private, and no other user will ever know how you voted. Once you place your vote, the vote score of the item will instantly change by either +1 (for an up vote) or -1 (for a down vote). The higher the vote score of the item, the higher it will be placed compared to the rest of the items in that area.

    In snaps, an up vote should typically mean that you like the content or that you found it interesting, and a down vote should typically mean that the content is lackluster or low quality, is an obvious attempt at spam, or is a re-post of something recently posted. In comments, similar rules apply, however down votes should only be used for irrelevant comments (and troll posts), but not ideas that you disagree with.

    This is almost exactly what the "rules" are for up- and down-voting on The Other Place. I haven't seen anything that says a downvote is a report.

    I have no solution for this, but I have noticed that when it is perceived that moderators (anywhere on the 'net) are biased in the application of their powers, people rapidly become more hostile. In The Other Place there are subs (many of them defaults) where ideas contrary to the popular opinion (for that sub) are suppressed in various ways. Nothing polarizes a person's attitudes more than being trivialized or worse.

    The claim is that users of FPH were actively engaged in harassing behavior. Many who used that subreddit claimed that's not true, and that it was a purely censorship move. I suspect the truth is somewhere in the middle, and I wonder why the individual harassing users couldn't have been dealt with before the sub had been banned. I'm sure it would have been much more difficult, but it would have been the "correct" first move.

    I understand that the mods that joined this protest feel like users are "hijacking" their protest movement, but I think it was inevitable because users have legitimate grievances as well, and they don't have the power that the moderators do to get the attention of those who run reddit, unless they just leave, which ends up being a "Pyrrhic victory."

    It is true that there is somewhat of a mob mentality, and some of the reactions to recent events on reddit are inexcusable.

    Maybe subs like FatPeopleHate needed to go for legitimate reasons, but there was no actual proof presented of what they were being accused of. The admins just said, "It's happening, so the subs have to go."

    Another thing that strongly undermines the admins' claims is that they banned subs like WhaleWatching even though it had absolutely no relation to FatPeopleHate--it really was about whale watching. Yes, it has since been reinstated, but the dragnet banning of supposedly related subs was not acceptable.
