Voat with your feet folks, 4 yr ex-Digg, now ex-Reddit submitted by p0ssum to introductions

So Voat will be down from the 10th to the 12th? Good to know.

Why is it perfectly acceptable to pay for health insurance monthly, and still have to pay for health care? submitted by middle_path to AskVoat

Vash- 0 points 13 points (+13|-0) ago

Insurance will cover you if you have something majorly wrong that requires $100k in treatment or something crazy (cancer for example) and not having insurance in those situations means you have to come up with the money yourself (i.e. you're screwed). When it comes up in TV/films is probably in those situations.

Think of it similarly to car insurance over here (I'm in the UK too) where there's an excess or premium charge for claiming on insurance. If you get a minor dent or scratch the paintwork of your car you aren't going to claim on that because the charge is off-putting or big enough that it's not worth it (never mind killing your no-claims bonus).

And yea, the NHS is literally the best healthcare service in the world (or right at the very top at least). We give it far far more flack than we should and should genuinely be much more concerned with fighting privatization than we are, because if we don't, our healthcare system turns into America's.

How long will it be before we don't see Reddit mentioned on Voat? submitted by UnderTheSun to AskVoat

Feel like Digg only started coming up again when Reddit started being crazy.

It's like 'Guys, this is just how our last relationship ended!'

Now that reddit is supposedly (emphasis on supposedly) dying, will this community get bigger? submitted by hahn to Dota2

Vash- 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago

I'm a bit late to the party, but basically I can see the 'Reddit Community' subreddits deciding to migrate, (so some of the really big ones where the bulk of suscribers would describe themselves as 'redditors'). The slightly smaller (but still big) and more focused subreddits are less likely to be affected, because the subscribers aren't really 'redditors', but just people that are interested in whatever that sub is about, and if that sub isn't specifically affected by the problems reddits currently facing then they're unlikely to leave.

An example could be that people in /r/gaming might consider themselves redditors and be more prone to leaving, where people in /r/dota2 don't use most of the rest of the site and don't really care so much about the wider issues (some do, but the community as a whole is unaffected and has no reason to leave...)

MRW I see Reddit mentioned now submitted by GodComplex to funny

Vash- 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago

I really don't see the big deal from a one off case of behaviour and it's hardly having a significant impact on reddit as a whole (as much as you might like to think it has). Maybe specific subs have been affected badly, but from what I can see the majority of the site is functioning normally as if nothing has happened.

If it starts happening that they ban subs regularly (which they won't I'm pretty sure), then maybe there'll be a signficant migration, but honestly there isn't enough content on Voat to make me want to actually move.

July 10th... Voat Day submitted by Agent_M to news

Vash- 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago

Yea, a comment I read before on Reddit was essentially saying that if Voat is down when everyone (the flood of people) is trying to access it, then it's missing out on a huge opportunity. Likewise though it's a pretty big risk to try and increase capacity just for that instance...
