Given their comic on free speech, this should come as no surprise to you.

Reddit For Sale: How We Bought The Top Spot For $200 submitted by Ex-Redditor to MeanwhileOnReddit

The good news is that Voat shills tend to stick out like sore thumbs. There's usually some combination of the account being relatively new (less than a month old) and getting a very unusual number of upvoats (Spartacus's post had one of the highest upvoat counts of all time for a v/whatever post). That, combined with a community that's constantly on high alert for shills, makes it basically impossible to get away with it on here, at least in terms of people believing your post is legitimate.

Making Games Better for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing | Designing for Disability submitted by killer7 to gaming

Excellent video. It's definitely very easy to overlook the disabled in game development, so awareness of it is definitely a plus.

I think it's terrible that some of the recent abortion laws do not have rape/incest exemptions. What do you guys think about it? submitted by forget-me-not to AskVoat

Here is a rational argument: once a person exists, killing him or her is murder and nobody has the right to do that.

So if a person breaks into your house armed and you decide to kill them in self-defense, it's still murder? To frame this in terms of abortion, if the woman's life is in immediate danger because of the pregnancy, this statement states that it would be murder to perform the abortion, even though, for all intents and purposes, it's being done as an act of self-defense.

To make this argument more analogous to pregnancies caused by rape, it's the equivalent of someone forcibly squatting on your property. They may not present an immediate and present danger to you, but is it still within your rights to forcibly remove them from the premises? Of course, I will admit such an analogy is not 100% perfect, as the squatter will not automatically die if evicted.

I guess to put it simply, it becomes a question of whether someone's right to self-autonomy overrules another's right to existence. For me, this is quietly the core of the abortion debate that no one actually seems to bring up.

As an aside, incest is a completely different can of beans. I presume that the pregnancy would be caused by two consenting parties, otherwise it would fall under rape, and incest being treated as a different case comes from a point of utilitarianism, due to the high rate of birth defects babies born in such a manner have.

For that specific problem, I'd take a shortcut and just do 876 + 1000 - 13. If numbers are close to super round numbers like that, then going that route seems to be easier for me.
