Did you bother to read my comment linked to in PuttItOut's announcement above? That's what I would do.

Having the website admin publicly acknowledge the censorship problem was a nice surprise then. I'm kind of in limbo waiting to see if he ever follows through on that.

Meanwhile there are plenty of people who don't understand the concepts, and plenty openly supporting voat's censorship and seeking to mislead others so they can continue to promote their favored ideologies here without opposition. They provide conversation.

Voat should be honest about what it is: either a site that respects free speech for all, or a heavily censored right-wing echochamber that only promotes free speech by providing unopposed speech for a particular group of people who may be censored elsewhere.

PS: This is my 10th comment for the day. There's no way I can reply to everyone on a thread like this.

Heavily censored

Dude. C'mon. I may be able to agree there is censorship, but heavily? Seriously, just fuck off.

Really? You're just objecting to the word "heavily"? Seems if I hadn't written that one word you'd have nothing to say..

Giving people with less than 10CCP absolutely no right to post sitewide is pretty heavy censorship in my eyes... Not even one post per day - letting them ever choose the topic of a thread is apparently too dangerous now.
