Probably none - just looking at the extremely high levels of hyperbole posted here only solidifies the idea that voat has a large number of people who are essentially idiots. "MAN JAILED FOR 2 YEARS ! OVER JOKE " ... - actually he hasn't been sentenced and is facing 2 - 6 months... - there are many examples of this kind of thing, even a cursory look into these stories shows they really stretching the truth to breaking point.

They wanted to give him 5 years. The fact that someone might be caged for teaching a dog a mildly offensive trick is fucking idiotic. It is something any normal thinking person would view as a travesty. This is especially true given the current rash of shit skins raping all the whoring little white trash in these shit skin white trash neighborhoods in the UKucked.

I think the fact he was even arrested is a travesty.. but sensationalism brings the story into doubt no matter how true... if I find someone is lying to me, I'm not really interested in anything else they have to say.

All the bullshit that is incorrect, fake or sensationalized is getting a little tiresome. Verify and don't vote based on titles alone. We can do better than this!

Stop defending fake news. If the title is wrong and the rest of the article is all right, then fucking change the title. If you see blatant fake news being posted, downvoat immediately, regardless of what the article says.

I think it's funny. I first saw it as "man jailed for 1 year.." then the next day it was "man jailed for 2 years..." and now it's "man jailed for 3 years..."

Zero, this will just cause voaters to go into a 1488 frenzy. The niggerfaggawatts would break the meter.

I, for one, wouldn't mind voat changing a bit. It doesn't all have to be identity politics. I came here a long time ago because reddit was becoming shit, but early reddit was good. That's what i miss. Voat has become anti-reddit. I'd like to think that we are more than that.

These racists can be some funny fucks. When voat is serious all the time I don't feel like coming here. I really feel the Right's comeback in the culture war was done with humor mostly.

Agreed. I liked Reddit as a platform, but not their zealous politics (admins and mods, don't care what users believe). If it weren't for my gardening sub, I would have left by now.

/v/truthhurts is Voat's /r/The_Donald. Its getting constant attention from butthurt faggots, being associated with it makes people discount you, constant downvoat brigading against it, etc.

I blocked the political / news subs to try and escape it, but it turns out that doesn't affect the /v/all feed.

It absolutely does. Blocked subs don't show up in /v/all

This is what I was thinking. Because of the down vote system, it'll probably work out for the better that they try. Here you don't get power just cause you showed up. They'll have to half assimilate before they can even down vote something.

I'm new on this site. What is this downvote system?

I don't think you can't down vote anything until your comments have reached 100 up votes. However you can start posting content pretty quickly. Once you see the shills trying to down vote stuff off the front page and can't, you'll see why that system is in place.

However you still have to go to v/all/new because just a few down votes when a post is just created can keep it from going anywhere.

We can say the system is not perfect but it keeps the trolls away for the most part. If you asked Voat for a consensus whether conformity was a good thing (in any respect) the overwhelming majority would be "fuck no!" The problem on a forum (or anywhere in real life) is money talks. If a group wanted to kill Voat you'd only have to pay a couple thousand people to downvote everything on the site for a few weeks. The problem with this is Voat's core is smarter than this and getting 100CCP takes time and effort (which internet shills suck at).

Wasn't a fan of it to start but it's growing on me and I can see the reason why. Gotta participate to influence the conversation instead of silently brigading.

The main issue I have with it is it promotes monolithic accounts because it is hard to start new accounts. Monolithic accounts are easier to profile which is the opposite of anonymity / free speech. However it doesn't take long before you can start posting content so it's not a big deal.
