AskVoat is no longer a default sub submitted by Atko to announcements

You've just demonstrated exactly why Voat is where I want to be.

That was impressive, decisive and effective. But you also showed restraint.

I'd buy you a beer right now if I could.

Is there any historical reason why SJWs have purple hair and thick-rim eye glasses ? submitted by Whothat to askgoat

A lot of them are overweight and unattractive to start with.

One response to being unattractive would be to go to the gym, lose some weight, get a good haircut, dress nicely, and basically make the best of what you've got.

The other response would be to reject the entire idea of attractiveness and try to make yourself look as repellant as possible, eg. ugly piercings, hideous tattoos, terrible haircuts, awful clothes. Then at least you can try to convince yourself that you're not unattractive, you're just rejecting societies 'beauty standards'.

It's not unusual behavior in humans. You'll often see similar behaviour with kids that are straight D students, rather than try harder to improve their grades, they will often reject academic success completely, to try, and convince themselves that you don't need school to be smart, and drop out of school. (i.e "My score doesn't count because I wasn't trying")

It's basically, "If I can't win I don't want to play".

The unusual appearance also acts as an in-group identifier, it lets other SJWs know that you're part of their club, that you belong. That you're committed enough to the group to radically change your appearance.

The fact that this post is on the front page of both reddit and voat, one day after a huge terrorist attack in France, tells me that the propaganda shills have been very busy.

Let's not talk about the French victims, let's not talk about muslim murderers, let's all look at this one muslim that was killed by another muslim and talk about how awsome muslims are. /s

This post is pure propaganda and I'm embarrassed voat has fallen for it.

Dear Microsoft: Please stop breaking my perfectly good Windows 7 | ZDNet submitted by Mixplate to technology

So your solution for a user who doesn't know command line syntax, is to use command line syntax.

Thank you for demonstrating everything thats wrong with linux.

Fears Windows 10 will blow data caps with forced updates, peer to peer update sharing submitted by Jawzper to technology

The automatic updates are the problem.

The UK is just of the coast of Europe, and has a population of 64 million. The Cook Islands are a small group of islands 3000 km from New Zealand, with a population of 10,000.. Small, isolated communities simply don't have the same level of infrastructure as large, densely populated regions. Many homes in the Cook Islands don't even have mains electricity, or a connection to a public water main. Getting 100GB fibre connections is pretty low on their priority list.

Where I live in NZ, I have a friend who lives just 50km outside our biggest city, in a farming community, whose home relies on a water tank for drinking water, has no cell phone reception, and can only get dial-up internet access. The local telco has said they might get ADSL "sometime in the next 7 years".

Even in our biggest cities I know many people who have 5-6 Mb connections with 40 GB caps.

It's an ongoing issue for people in small isolated communities. Software and web services, and websites get designed by people who live in densely populated cites, who think a 100GB fibre connection with 5ms ping is standard, people who think your phone will always have a 3G connection with unlimited data (eg streaming music). And they design their products based on those assumptions.

But when you're living in a rural community, on a 256k connection with 400ms ping, a lot of web services are practically unusable. The current move to 'software as a service' like Office Online, and the recent trend for massive incremental updates is making it very difficult for people in rural areas.

The thing is, Microsoft (and other software companies), could've made the updates optional, they could've used time zone and location info to decide how to handle the internet connection, they could've made the peer to peer sharing a user choice. But they didn't, they just assumed everyone lives in silicon valley and has high speed unlimited internet.
