Tell them that you intentionally did it as a test because you were concerned for the privacy of your many genderqueer/non-binary friends and that they no longer feel safe.

Does anyone remember the name of the tactic that Trump uses? submitted by MotorBreath to AskVoat

This statement has been given the name Cunningham's law. This may have been what OP was referring to.

It says in a linked article here:

According to state law, precincts whose poll books don’t match with ballots can’t be recounted. If that happens, original election results stand.

Can some one explain how that makes sense? Let's say trump had lost and he ordered a recount, and say for the sake of argument none of the poll books in any precinct match. Would they just say, "Well, looks like there was so much fraud we can't even begin to do a recount. Tough luck." It seems like that's when a recount would be most needed.

I had a similar idea, but like the wanderer said, I think anyone should be able to use it. Additionally, I think it should be done through a trusted third party. (There seem to not be too many third parties that can do this, but it seems the UK government can (for UK citizens), and if you do a google search, you can find newer companies that are trying to be able to do this as well. Presumably this will be more ubiquitous as time goes on, so if this is not feasible now it will be soon.

My motivation was to the option to not only verify their identity to other users, but instead, if they chose, they could verify their true identity just to voat admins and remain anonymous to voat users. This might allow people to use features of the site that would otherwise be abused by people with multiple accounts. And, in fact, if some sort of unique hash could be generated from personal information (for example, name, address, etc) by the third party, then the user who wants to prove they are a real person doesn't even need to reveal their identity to voat admins.

The only drawback is that the third party services would probably cost money, and so giving extra features to verified accounts would give an unfair advantage to people with more money to spend.

Why does it sound like a nightmare?

I agree with that. This wouldn't be used for opinion based comments. More like if you were writing a guide about how to do something, and there were parts that you weren't sure you had the best way of doing it. Then you could open your post up for edits, so an expert could make significant improvements to the parts you weren't sure about. Once the most important improvements have been made, the edits might devolve into bickering, but perhaps a feature could be added where the OP could lock the post from further editing.
