Its nice too see more activity here. I feel at this stage, we are getting mostly people who think for themselves. Which, leads to more interesting discourse.

Excuse me if this sounds rude, it's not my intention. Wouldn't a bunch of people following what others told them to do - in this case go to voat - mean they don't think for themselves?

Depends largely on the reason people ultimately decide to come here. The way I see it people who mainly transfer just to spite reddit will not last long and end up going back for sloppy seconds, but those that are leaving in order to test the waters are most likely users that can think for themselves.

I think it was more like, hey there is this other place called vote, if you were looking for something like reddit but wasn't reddit.

But aren't people are coming to vote because of an external reason.

Yes, if that's why these people came here, because they were told. I just don't think being told to do something is enough to motivate strangers on the internet. They would also need more personal reason to make the switch. I feel, the majority of the people we are seeing come to voat, have a reason beyond being told too. How about you what brings you here?
