Pretty accurate. A group of diverse people, some normal, some horrible, and at the same time, no one fucking cares. Post whatever the fuck you want and engage however the fuck you want. Generally if you post absurd absolutes, you will be DV. Aka "Trump is literally Hitler." Not only absurd, literally false.

This. When I started here, I never expected I would believe anti-white male propaganda existed and holocaust conspiracy theories that make sense. It pretty much depends on how much time you're willing to sift through information to reach the bottom of things. This is a good place to get information that you won't find supported by any other online community. So, beware or godspeed depending on your intentions.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot...

How about you just act like yourself instead of looking for an identity to cling too?

Voat is a breath of fresh air most days. There's a lot of shit but it's good in a way, teaches you to always check for sources and evidence. Prepare for the wave of depression when you apply the same standards to mainstream media.

Act like you have an opinion and can give reasons as to why you have that opinion. If you want to say "All men are dickheads because I've been raped twice," you'll get plenty of downvotes because all men are not dickheads. Contrary to, "I have been raped twice and have difficulty trusting men now," you will receive support and offered suggestions on how to get proper help for the trauma.

Voat tries to make you think and judge for yourself. I read a post from someone who mentioned "The Greatest Story Never Told." I have not watched the 7h jewtube video but the user also posted a link breaking down some major points. Why would the Germans have death camps when prisoners were free labor? Why did they use expensive methods of exterminating prisoners (gas/building gas chambers) when millions of bullets were produced every month? Why don't we talk about the million + Poles killed during 'the holocaust.' Why aren't other great mass exterminations talked about? How come the only gas chambers were found in the 5 camps the Soviets liberated and not in the 12 the Allies liberated? 85% of Stalin's cabinet was Jew. Why did only Jew families receive reparations? How come the numbers who died in 'the holocaust' rise substantially (with documentation) after the war and through the 50s? The list continues but what this did is it opened my mind even further. We know the media lies to us and has been for some time.

Think slightly less of you for not managing to get yourself out of it, and move on with my life. FPH may have you believe otherwise, but you can have negative opinions about overweight people without being batshit insane.

EDIT: I still care though. If you managed to live a better lifestyle, I would be genuinely happy for you.

Opposite of reddit, so very conservative. There are a few moderates/liberals left, but not many. At least not many that talk openly about it.

However, there are some subs that don't really pay attention to political beliefs. /v/gaming i've noticed is pretty focused on gaming as it should be.

You may notice some politics bleeds into other subs at times. That's why we have block buttons though.

IPs point to a mostly US userbase but that's because of VPNs. Aussies & Kiwis are plentiful, Europeans, Canucks, but still mostly american though.

As for age groups, I'd say it's a good mix although you'll encounter a lot of frustrated young adults in the comments (educated guess I'd say).

SJWs are mostly in /v/canada & /v/Chicago, trying to create a reddit safe space on Voat by meta-banning users who offend their ideals.

Say Hi to @Empress & check out her sub /v/traditionalwives, a nice place for ladies to exchange on values.

I remember worldwide stats from where Voaters visit, and the list went something like:

  1. USA 60%

  2. Canada 25%

  3. Britain made up for like 13%

  4. South Korea 0.3%

So overwhelmingly NA. You'd be surprised though, I've run across several fellow Swedes on Voat. I'm sure there are people from your specific area as well.

While I have no data to base it on, based on my anecdotal experience, I would imagine that the average age is a bit higher than that for Reddit, considering some of the political opinions expressed here regularly, although certainly not really old. We do have some users that are up there in terms of age, however. A fair number of females, although those that are about don't usually advertise it unless it is somehow related to the conversation. Not sure on religion, other than it's safe to say there are probably next to no Muslims and not many Jews.

Are you implying American WASPs weren't taken out of power and replaced with Jews?

[–] Joe_McCarthy 3 points 0 points (+3|-3) ago  (edited ago)

Considering that WASPs had a near monopoly in most power centers until the 70s it'd be absurd to concede such a claim. Jews are actually less represented in Hollywood than they were decades ago and they're a minority of even American media honchos. If you look to places like Pentagon brass and Congress Jews are no more than 10% at most.

WASPs have declined in influence but to say they've been replaced wholesale by Jews is bullshit. Other ethnicities have moved up as well.

And to speak of Jews among elites is one of the least nonsensical things said about them around here, mind.

a bit like a battlefield, the only part that's balanced is the no-mans-land in the middle. Voat is kind of the opposite to reddit, biased in the opposite direction. The biggest difference here is that admin is not supporting and promoting one viewpoint over all others, the platform itself is independent even if the users aren't.

Actually the admins are acting actively against the ongoing shill attacks here on voat(that's a good thing, unlike Reddit). But it seems like the shills have a day off right now.

It's sunday, there's always less paid activity on a sunday, applies to paid shills and spammers equally. The obsessives are still doing their thing but the ones where it's just a dayjob for them are enjoying their day off.

I've posted that /v/funny is what will bring Voat down. Over time it has changed from complete irony to some of the reddit 'funny' garbage. My upvotes to /v/funny are few and far between. My non-vote and down-vote is 48/48.

Nope, CCP restrictions are very pro hive-mind, and the hive-mind here is racist, sexist and loves Trump. If you're not racist, not sexist and think trump is crap, you're going to be severely gagged.

Disclaimer: If we’re conversing, I will soon fall silent. I may want to continue, but because my views are unpopular here I have less than 100 CCP, and am temporarily banned as soon as I make 10 comments in a day. Voat does not respect free speech. Don’t be a hypocrite and pretend that it does.

CCP restrictions are very pro hive-mind

CCP restrictions are anti bot, not pro hive mind, in that they apply equally to every account which means the force of them falls heavier on users with multiple accounts, ie shills and botters.

Voat does not respect free speech

voat does not disrespect free speech either, it simply ALLOWS free speech without treating it in any special way. You are still "speaking" here and I am able to read and respond to you in a way which would not be possible on sites like reddit where a shadowban would ensure that the only person reading your words would be yourself. Don’t be a hypocrite and pretend that a negative number in your SCP or CCP is equivalent to a secret ban.
