I agree but at the same time you have to understand where people are coming from. All the reddit crowd is now showing up here and what they think they want is reddit minus the drama. Until the differences become apparent expect people to act like this is reddit 2.0

People have to stop trying to compare this site to Reddit (not going to happen, I know). For Voat to succeed it has to become independent of Reddit, it has to form it's new image and its base community. When Reddit started it was a group of programmers, geeks, and generally tech savvy people. That was their image and they built upon it. If Voat's initial image is Reddit 2.0 I don't know how much growth or individuation it'll achieve. It might become 9gag 2.0, or Buzzfeed 2.0 if we're not careful.

The ideal thing to do would be to not even mention Reddit, or Pao, or Victoria so that Voat users and by extension Voat can come up with their/its own identity.
