Mod Celebration and Self-posts (and reposts)
First of all, happy 4/20 and happy belated 420,000 angry upvoters! I'm so proud of this community and seeing how far we've come, so let's see just how angry we can get.
Now, something that makes all of us angry: reposts. Reposts, as well as bot accounts, are tough to spot but can be really annoying by stealing the work of others and/or posting the same material over and over again. While it is the moderators' jobs to counter this, work from you by reporting and commenting on said posts really gelps us a lot. We're doing our best and hope to calm things down a bit, as we are here to angrily upvote good posts, not angrily downvote reposts.
Finally, self-posts. Rule 5 clearly states this isn't allowed, but we've been kinda lax about this (and a lot of the rules tbh). Is this rule outdated and in need of abolishment, or should it be enforced more? An example is this post where the OP is the one to angrily upvote. There are 334 angry upvotes on the post, so is it a good post? Personally, I have nothing against self posts, but that's why I'm asking you for your thoughts.
Don't even get me started on Rule 2 and 3...
TLDR: 4/20 hurray, reposts suck, are self posts fine?

Mod What is an Angry Upvote?
This is a question we all ponder. Even myself, u/angryupvote, don't know what I am. Many moons ago was The First Angry Upvote. This was the birth of this wonderful subreddit, and that clearly was someone quite angry to upvote said post.
Nowadays, the line is quite blurred. This post quickly shot up to the top of hot. It exemplifies exactly why someone would be angry to upvote: a quite brilliant yet blatently transphobic remark. At the time of writing this, that post has 78 reports. Many are at the sheer controversy of the post, but as well many hint at the fact that this isn't an angry upvote. It's a screenshot from Twitter, and even the title just mentions it should belong here. But why?
The post was approved by Ukiyozen, practically the only mod here who does anything. Scrolling through the subreddit, almost none of the posts are as the rules describe a "true angry upvote". However, is the subreddit better this way? I couldn't tell you. I created this place, then vanished off the face of the Internet for a couple years. Nowadays, all the rules are being broken, with almost nobody enforcing them. Is this bad moderation, or is it bad rules to begin with? These are the questions I am asking you, dear angry upvoter. Ask not what your subreddit can do for you, but what you can do for your subreddit. We need to figure out what truly is an Angry Upvote.
TLDR: Lack of moderation and unclear rules have made this subreddit unsure what an angry upvote really is and isn't. I ask you to comment below what your thoughts are on all of this.
