Serious question, how can we be so sure Voat is not going to end as Reddit in the next few years?

Assuming that the following will never change (or will change within a reasonable tolerance), there are a few key differences with the first being that Voat is currently more transparent than Reddit when it comes to communication between the admins and the users, the second being that they promised that as long as the content is not illegal to hold on the software, there will be no censoring, and the third being that users are highly encouraged to have more discussion rather than circle-jerks. Thankfully, there are limits placed on the downvote button in order to eliminate downvote trains seen on Reddit.

While these are good points, nothing forbids voat to redefine its communication policies and voating mechanics, thus becoming the new reddit. There's only hope.

You can't be sure. It will most likely happen. But there is no need to speed it along by simply importing everyone from reddit.
