I post a lot, too ... and why on Earth would you be bothered by someone adding content? I open and view many of @HWY__395 posts, mostly gifs and pics, and I generally enjoy viewing them. There's tons of crap that floods v/all and v/front that I personally don't like, but that's life, so to speak. Yet this is Voat, and Voat is a free speech platform where (speaking for myself) we welcome new and varied content. Does he post a lot ... yup. Are there turkeys in there, maybe, that's one person's opinion. That said, I see no problem here. I much prefer the ability to pick and choose what I want to view when I scan v/all, than have someone censored because someone else thinks they add too much.

Cool, just trying to make a point, though - LOL. Thanks for the correction.

I would completely agree with you if I didn't get downvoat brigaded as soon as I posted this. That's not free speech

No down vote from me ... I don't play that. Your opinion is as valuable to me as anyone else's. I would guess it's the censorship issue I mentioned that got that ... but trust me, I just comment when I see, I don't punish people for their thoughts. The few down votes I've ever given were hard earned - LOL.

Voat:

There's not enough content!

Also Voat:

Don't you think it's time we limit how much content can be posted?

From ONE person, come on man. If one person becomes a household name like him for low quality snorting gifs or whatever then there is going to be even less variety than there is before. I'm not talking HUGE limits, just so they can't post to the same sub 10 times an hour.

Some tips for you: Block him. Block his personal subverses. Also, download v/AVE and use the ignore user feature, which will hide their submissions. This has been very helpful for me (I've had to use it for a user or two).

And, no. There's not enough content on Voat. I, for one, really enjoy @HWY_395's posts. They really jazz up the place. He's one of those users who is out for a spell and then comes back in for a spell. When he comes back in, he has a lot of material, so it's looks like he's flooding. Oh well. Maybe that's the side effect of free speech?

downvoat brigaded as soon as I posted this. That's not free speech

Don't get triggered by the downvoats now, calling it a brigade. The DVs are likely just a natural reaction to someone calling for soft censorship, especially because he's a well-liked user. Votes are an expression of free speech.

Be the change you want to see. If you want good content, post some yourself.

I only post when I deem it absolutely necessary out of my respect for the platform, but when I see somebody post more in 4 hours than I have ever it raises questions. Thanks for the advice!

I think he's trying to be the first voater to pass the 100000 SCP mark

You got downvoated, not downvoat brigaded.

How is the idea that he is a part of some conspiracy more plausible to you than the obvious fact that you were downvoted because people found your post stupid?

why don't you post more OC? Your posting habits are sad. Fuck, your upvoting habits are even sadder. If don't like what I post, hit the block button and quit your crying.

If 50% of the posts are from one person then that person effectively controls the narrative, /u/sanegoatiswear might actually be sane

You know, I partly stopped posting because instead of being happy community of contributing members, there were four people who contributed and a lot of voices complaining about just the fact that new content is on Voat. Would you like Voat to be with the same posts for years?

Anyway, so I left. I was bored.

Yes honestly, I would like to see this platform be a beacon of free speech and a place where people can get articles that aren't white shaming all day. It just blew my mind that somebody would post 40 time in 4 hours like it was their JOB.
