And know you what? They're going to make a lot of money in the process. As far as they're concerned, someone else can bare the responsibility of free expression. They're going to gut reddit, and sell the remains to the highest advertiser.
Looking at Ellen Pao's history, this should not be a surprise. It is why they hired her.

Uninformed people are the only reason people don't understand all of this shit can be disabled if you pay attention durring the Win10 install....
Not saying we shouldn't still be concerned that its all on by default, but this isn't anywhere near as big of a deal as the media has been making it out to be. And this invasion of privacy is for the purpose of enabling certain features of Cortana.... Its not like they're just doing it for the sake of fucking you over. Its literally exactly the same thing Google Now does... if you've opt'd into Google Now, you've already waived all the same privacy privileges.
If anything, Microsoft should be praised for how transparent they were about all this stuff durring the Win10 install... Unlike Google, Apple and Facebook who hope you don't stumble upon their terms of service... I thought they did a good job of laying it out all very clearly. And Microsoft is just trying to compete, and bring themselves up to the same level of privacy invasion all the other companies already do.
Most people complaining about Windows 10's privacy issues are giant hypocrites who use one of those other companies simmilar services that invade your privacy just as badly, if not much much worse (everyone always incorrectly thinks their desktop PC is the most sacred computing device, with all the most important stuff they have... meanwhile your cellphone typically holds much more private data that you should be worried about much more.... yet i bet most people with new Android phones use Google Now, allowing all the same access Win10 wants to much more private data than is on their desktop PC). Again, not saying you shouldn't be concerned, but the likely hood that we're all giant hypocrites is very high. But "hurr durr fuck M$, win7 4 lyfe, this is vista all over again, hurrr durrr hurrrrr"

I am like a broken record saying this at this point, but yes you are right:
It is important that everyone go forth... find the things that you find interesting on the internet. Things you are passionate about. Post them here, don't be shy!!! Let voat reflect the type of person you are, and the sort of cool stuff you are into.
There are so many people here now just desperately hungry for content, if you provide it, they will come. I have had a great time posting content, where on reddit I hardly ever did (there was no need really)... but here, its rewarding and fun. I've had a great time watching my posts get votes, and I've had a great time interacting w/ commenters. On that other site, i'd be lucky for any of my stuff to get seen.
And again, like i said: I never really did this much on reddit.... But this site is different. At least for right now. Everything I have posted has gotten attention. So don't be shy. Go nuts. Have fun. Help build the community you want to see. Help build subreddits that are useful to you.
We don't necessarily have to make it like what reddit used to be like. Everyone's going to have a different nostalgic 'good ol' days'. So just be genuine to yourself and your passions and interests, and help Voat reflect them for the world to see. This place will be even more awesome than it already is in no time.

You should really check out the Windows 10 install for yourself, even if just in a Virtual Machine... You can already disable all the privacy intrusion stuff, and there are registry hacks to turn off automatic updates....
If you're a seasoned windows user it should be very easy to get it working how you would like...

FUCK MICRO$OFT, THEy ARE THE DEVIL, WIN7 4 LYfE, THIS IS VISTA ALL OVER AGAIN, HURR DURRR PRIVACY HRUR FUR DERPPP.
sigh. Its funny how many people bitching about this don't realize that this is how their Windows PC is configured right now... lol. And anyone who's at least tested Win10 in a virtual machine knows: Microsoft is extremely forthcoming (way more so than Apple, Google and Facebook are w/ their terms of service) during the Windows 10 install. If you read it carefully, there is a link to customize all your privacy settings where you can disable all the super intrusive stuff.... However, all they're doing is exactly what Google does w/ Google Now.... disabling this stuff also limits new functionality, and Microsoft is just trying to play catchup w/ Google Now, using Cortana.... So if you opt into Google Now on your phone, this is no different.
If you don't want these new features, disable all the info sharing w/ Microsoft durring install.... its that simple. Windows 10 has been great, and I've enjoyed it a lot. All this media coverage about Win10 and Privacy is entirely overblown if you have any experience w/ the OS, and know what you're doing (and understand what Microsoft is actually doing w/ your data [you might not even care])... This is the typical media, not reporting anything even remotely close to reality. It always happens w/ tech issues though, nobody should be surprised.
If you don't know what PGP is, it doens't matter what OS you're using, your data is not safe... sooo......
Also, If you haven't at least installed Win10 into a virtual machine, and have seen the installation prompts, and how it explains the privacy stuff, then.... STFU.... you're only puppeting lies and misrepresentations from the media who also hasn't done this. It is not as bad as they are making it out to be, and everything is done for a reason.

Cool story bro. All it takes to make you a hypocrite is owning a smart phone. Encrypt with PGP, and it wont matter what OS you use.... Don't encrypt with PGP, and you're privacy is a fantasy at best, even if you're using linux.
