I usually stay out of Voat drama, but I checked the CSS and this is legitimately concerning. Here's the relevant bit:

a[href="/user/shiningstar"] {
    font-size: 0px;
}
a[href="/user/shiningstar"]:not(.upvoatsGiven)::after {
  content: "blahblahgabor";
  font-size: 12px;
}

In effect, this code changes "shiningstar" to "blahblahgabor". The href of the link is not affected, just the text.

Transparent moderation is very important. I have no idea what they were thinking when they did this.

How many people here prefer "night mode"? submitted by RiverOfWhiskey to AskVoat

I prefer the light theme, but whatever floats your Voat.

Girls-Only Computer Camps Formed At Behest of Top Google, Facebook Execs submitted by Futt to technology

This may not be a popular opinion here, but I think it's a good idea. First, while it is literally segregation, it's not forced segregation. There will still be many mixed-gender computer camps. Having a few that are only open to girls does not restrict choice, it increases it.

And I can see why a girl would want to make that choice. Enough people have a very dismissive attitude towards young women in computing. Treating boys and girls the same sounds great, but in practice, they are not being treated equally by many of their peers. When they go to a conventional, mixed-gender computer camp, they are in a small minority, maybe being the only girl there and they're met with the assumption by many that they don't belong there and could not possibly be interested in computers.

edit: misused a word.

The way I see it, it increases choice for girls and does not affect boys' choices since it would not otherwise exist.

I did not suggest that Internet comments are an accurate cross-section of public opinion. I merely responded to a comment which stated the dismissive attitude I'm referring to is "complete hype made up by the SJWs" by pointing to examples of what I mean.
