Yes, that is unfortunately allowed. The GM's have said that if 9 players wants to kick someone, they shouldn't be stopped. It sucks that it happened to you. Best way to counter it is to always queue with at least one friend (good friend, not troll friend). That way, you won't get kicked.
The kick could have been justified. I have been in quite a few games where your team was clearly losing and one guy just did not want to concede saying that your team should suffer, take the time to ltp, etc.. Not conceding in order to grief is even reportable.
Yea the vote kick sucks sometimes, but you just gotta live with it. I was just vote kicked out of a game for "ksing" a Polly when I was playing Pred. My team was 4 friends, so of course all of them up voted it, and the other team all up voted because I was the one carrying the game and me being gone would give them a chance of winning. So I got kicked and my team lost the game since it was a bunch of supports and I lost mmr...
Working as intended. You were ruining the game for 9 other people.
If what you are saying is a valid logic, imagine S2 being the American government and the 10th player being of African decent.

Another positive of this would be more options for Sword of the high; if someone sees you now with it, he knows you are going for mock and prepare for it accordingly.
It scales the MOST lategame, when everyone has a lot of armor, since true strike completely ignores it. It also scales pretty well with attack speed. More attacks = more procs in a given time frame.
