Voat is working fine now. I say let Reddit be toxic, let them say whatever they want. We have to set the tone early: we're above that. We left the crazy ex and we aren't returning their calls.

We've deleted the facebook too, and are en route to the gym!

I only just joined with the recent influx and from what I've seen so far the Voat userbase is much more rational and civilised. All that jerking about the worst of reddit moving here seems to just stem from bitterness and resentment. Happy to be here right now.

Their problem is that the population size validates their website to them. The followers are still over there looking for their leaders. Poor saps are still in denial.

They claim to have done it, but AFAIK never provided any proof. All they want is attention; we need to stop giving it to them.

Not to just the hosting company either, but to PayPal as well, which is why their account is frozen and they can't accept PayPal donations at the moment.

It's like Westboro Baptist Church. The only correct action is to ignore them.

Or, to put it another way, the only winning move is not to play.

SRS and SRD are the cancer that have been killing Reddit for a long time. They're immune to the rules because the admins like to play in there too. Even the CEO. And yes, Voat got reported for CP to PayPal and I wouldn't be surprised if the hosts were notified as well. Voat was also DDoSed. I wouldn't be surprised if the same groups were involved in that as well. They're 4chan without "not your personal army".

Typical SRS, total losers who'll do anything for attention and validation in their own shitty echo chamber.

As a commenter in that thread pointed out, Voat was never down because of this as Atko had moved to a cloud-based server just before the provider in Germany shut its servers.

Luckily, we have managed to move our databases to a cloud platform mere hours before they shut down our servers.

Secondly, there was CP on Voat which I posted about here: https://voat.co/v/AskVoat/comments/162180/436392 and was posted a statement about here https://voat.co/v/announcements/comments/163288.

The links are all safe from inappropriate images but the bottom two discuss CP and are thus NSFW.

Top is Atko talking about his previous German host terminating his contracts and hosting service without notice.

Middle is an AskVoat discussion on creeps and whether a commitment to free speech and expression should include them.

Third is Atko announcing the removal of a group of blatantly illegal and borderline (and creepy) subverses with his reasons for doing so.

The fact that there were people actually pissed that they banned the subs that released private info and also CP is disgusting to me. I understand free speech and all, but that doesn't extend to illegal activities.

This. Thank you. I understand that it's difficult to gauge where the line is, but come the fuck on, CP is clearly over the line and shouldn't be tolerated.

Even if it were legal it is hideous and should never be allowed.

Can't people who are into highly illegal things like CP just get kicked in the nuts at with an steel girder at terminal velocity so that we can have our uncensored environment?

No but it seems like there is a legal infringement here somewhere. Fuck SRS, they're almost as retarded as FPH, I'm just wondering how this passed and nobody did anything against it.

That sub is nothing but a hive of trolls they can have and keep reddit. I hope we can keep them out of here at least for a while. They provide no useful content. All they do is attempt to brigade.

Can somebody ELI5 what/who SRS actually are? I visited that subreddit last week but only saw a circlejerk around mostly racist things other people said on other parts of reddit. Is this all or is it actually a 'movement' like FPH etc?

[–] bankruptbroker 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

It started as a group of goons from SA, SA used to be cool too at one time. I don't know if FPH is a "movement" but they are definitely fanatics.

That's pretty much it. They're a ragtag gang of hypocrites who want nothing more than to silence those who oppose their views.

The situation is unclear. They probably hate us over at SRS and they can go fuck themselves. I doubt they actually did anything, but they may have. It's hard to tell. We did have several CP-ish subs banned IIRC
