Yes or no?

Clickbait is an annoying thing which is potentially dangerous. People should be tested and demonstrate a minimum level of understanding of the English language, critical reading skills, as well as an ability to tell annoying nonsense apart from actually interesting content on actually interesting subjects, before being permitted to post some.

No, but I think that a user that wishes to share clickbait/news articles in an ironic way should be educated in using http://archive.is/ to share such links in order to not provide them clickstream data in so that they are incentivized to either improve it or not be encouraged to do it as much in the future.

The shitposters approval committee would be myself, fat Lard, and Joshua Garcia. Most shitposters would get through withe that two to one majority, sure, but the quality control for borderline users would be great

I feel like making an entire panel just to filter out Blode's posts is a bit excessive.

Had I been elected, getting rid of spambots was one of my top priorities. Unfortunately, the voters felt that moderating the forum isn't what they should base their decision for a moderator on.

Vote for Joshua Garcia, he actually has a chance and he'll probably do something about spambots.
