Believe it or not, reddit used to be a "wild west." It got popularized after Digg killed itself. Kinda like how Voat is now getting more popular now that reddit is killing itself.

If Voat ever dies, there will be a new platform to take its place.

If liberals win the next few elections, expect voat, gab, bitchute, stormfront, etc to all have their domains seized, and replaced with FBI logos, in the name of fighting "hate speech".

This is one of those bipartisan issues. Both parties supported SESTA-FOSTA. Fuck Democrats and Republicans.

don't worry @kevo7777, this is sanegoatiswear and i have spent 6 months building voat's replacement. a few months from now, there will be a new wild west. no censorship, and backed in a system that these shills cannot infiltrate and cannot takeover and cannot destroy.

Didn’t a few websites get certain things shut down because of something trump wanted to do? The sex stuff? Yes. That’s the answer. Rhetorical. Craigslist used to be fun. Now it’s useless.

I actually hope that'll happen. Crypto fueled chats and the darkweb will actually be a decent place for ideas

On voat they here but they can only sway content insofar as not detected by a useful mass of users.

Their techniques and libertiesc are limited to this

Well kind of half true. Yes, admins did not moderate but the culture was overwhelmingly PC-libertarian, nobody ever said words like nigger, even saying lol u a fag got one downvoted into oblivion.

Voat is far from 'the last'.

There are many things further out on the fringe than Voat.

Voat is just one step beyond Reddit.

↑This x100000. I don't think OP has even seen what goes on in the chans. And I'm not even talking about four-chins and double-plus-good-chan (those are cucked, in their own way, and have been for a long time, now). And that doesn't even touch the darnket (again, not just Tor) communities, that are out there, of several hundred (if not a thousand, or two) people.

As long as the internet exists, so will places without censorship. You can print that on a plaque and hang it up.

That's great they exist but they have to be somewhere normies can be exposed to or free speech can't work as a cultural counter balance. ((They)) know this why dont we?

In my experience, the other chans don't have much of a following though. Granted, I haven't gone down those rabbit holes in many years.

Pornhub, chans, and places where you need to know to ip address to find the party outside of any search engines.

Our country was founded by guys who met in secret in barns and by docks. It is laughable that these assholes think they can supress a nation with more than 300 million guns. We ARE the largest military on the planet, as private citizens.

I wouldn't be surprised to see more free speech and privacy oriented platforms in the future.

People are starting to see what companies like Facebook do and are getting away from it. Privacy and security is the future. Implementation of that seems to be the hard part.

That was before the internet went mainstream, studies show that the more mainstream something is the shittier it gets.

Hmm, as much as Fallout 3 was hated, I actually really loved it due to its atmosphere and feeling.

Apple, Adobe, Google (and by extension, Android), every social media website ever, BlackBerry, Palm (WebOS survives, probably because it's not mainstream), Metallica, McDonald's, the computing capacity of the average modern desktop PC (excluding prohibitively expensive gaming rigs), the Catholic church; most of the large car manufacturers— which are all owned by a handful of conglomerates anyways, probably for the sole purpose of fostering an illusion of choice; large retailers like Wal-Mart and Target, literally every game studio ever (*glares at Blizzard and Activision, while ignoring EA completely*).

You get the point. Too many things are going to shit, lately. The world is long overdue a hard reset.

Lol... dude, the "internet went mainstream" September 1993 ~ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eternal_September

It has done nothing but get shittier since then. I remember raging about those fucking AOhelL users shitting up the place through the 90's (usenet, email lists, MUD's that you had to telnet into with a specific IP address). And yes, I'm old as fuck and was there to experience it first-hand from my University account.

As bad as AOhelL was, the boom of smartphones last last decade has been immeasurably worse for the internet. For a good analogy, if the internet before 1993 was a pool, it was clean, pure water. 93~2006 people kept pissing in it, but chlorine did its job reasonably well. 2006~now, there's no water left... it's all piss with a scum of turds on the surface. I imagine by 2030, it'll be a solid piece of shit with Nothing of value remaining.

Don't forget CompuServe and Prodigy.

Kind of funny every time someone comes along with "z0mg teh interwebs are losing freedums!11!!!!!"

NNTP still works, as does IRC, and no one in the mainstream pays attention to them because they're old as the hills. Combine that with the darkweb and P2P and free speech isn't going anywhere.

Hell, if things get really bad, I'm sure you can find an old copy of WWIV and a modem somewhere.

There's GAB (opinions vary on this), and then there are projects like ZeroNet... I think the future, if there is one, will be decentralized. I've been doing a lot of research into emerging decentralized web technologies and will hopefully be building something in the near future.
