I don't like articles with clickbait titles, whether they were done by the news source or the poster. I also don't like when people will upvoat an inaccurate article with no sources to the front page. People should try to read the article before upvoating it, especially if it seems suspect.

I like everything else.

I've noticed a bit of that. That's one of the many reasons I started to hate Reddit. Something like 5% of users actually participated in discussion of posts they voted on.

I was just as bad sometimes, voting posts up to hide them so I can see more of my favorite subreddits... Then I asked myself why I even used the front page, and didn't go sub by sub. Then I asked myself, "Why the fuck am I subscribed to this, still?"

On reddit you'd see a front page post (which obviously had a load of upvotes) and you'd see in the comments that there was some comment with over a thousand upvotes pointing out that the entire story was false. How many people just read the title or just read the article? It makes me crazy that absolute junk continues to get upvoted even when someone else has already done the leg work for you to determine that it's nonsense.

I use upvotes as a system to know what I've already seen at a quick glance, so I kind of just use them automatically on everything look at, but I always look at the comments and if someone is calling out op's shit, I'll change it to a downvote.

like all those voat users who were on reddit well past when it was obvious censorship until their sub was nuked.

Once the lizard brain perceives a challenge it enters fight and/or flight mode.

I've seen suggestions in studies that the amygdala is more sensitive or developed in the conservative or right wing brain. Might explain the hostility.

Not enough content in niche subs. It's to be expected considering how political we are by nature but it'd be nice if people posted more pictures, articles, and tutorials in subs they have interests in (subs of hobbies, nature, etc.). The subs are out there. They just need poking.

I'm wondering if this is a result of the userbase not being sufficiently large to generate momentum for those at this point.

That's the price we pay for shitting all over the periodic influx of redditors. They can't handle being called a 'faggot", a "nigger" or a "kike" and run away to some other web-site. If they could get over their lib-tard conditioning and focus on the subs, the subs would be great; but the libs have their claws so deep in the American soul, poisoning it every chance they get, that any anti-lib message sends normal people, who don't give a flying fuck about anything other than their sub, running in the other direction.

Liberals need to die.

Same problem over on Gab.ai . I want to use it like a normal social network but with a better userbase to discuss all kinds of things in a censorship free space, not just see political articles about Trump spammed everywhere.

It's possible part of the reason is Voat's content policy which I just commented on here: https://voat.co/v/AskVoat/1575208/7678013

There's a 50/50 content policy that prevents content creators from submitting their own high value content without also submitting 3rd party content. It's probably discouraging a lot of content creators from submitting original content who aren't interested in submitting 3rd party content. The rule is not often enforced but it doesn't really make sense and I've tried to discuss it with top mods but they don't seem to have an answer.

From voat's rules on Self-Promotion:

If majority of the links you submit are to sites you are associated with, your domains may be globally banned from Voat. To be on the safe side, if you submit 10 links to various subverses on Voat, at most 5 of the 10 submitted links may be to the sites you are associated with.

You're free to post as much of your own "high value content" as you want. The rule is to ensure you don't only post content you're affiliated with. How is this a problem? Do you want to be part of the community or just be here to self-promote?

The justification from the people on this site to act just like SJW's and regressives. It's always okay when "they" do it, because they are smart. The other side is just stupid!

Question: whence cometh the Minnesota Transracial Adoption Study? Is the Hadza-Datoga aggression difference cultural? Why do Native Americans average higher math scores than Africans?

I know Charles Murray screwed up by citing Weyl and a small circle of Mankind Quarterly writers that only cite each other and don't use outside sources. So not all hereditarians are equally credible. I greatly distrust Murray's reasoning ability.
