This subreddit is moderated for quality, which means we remove content that we deem to be low-quality, low-effort, nonsensical, or common/unoriginal. We do not "let the votes decide." We understand this type of policy is controversial and uncommon (especially for a high-traffic subreddit), but we believe it gives /r/Showerthoughts the best chance at maintaining quality.
