It's malicious. This isn't the real world where we are bombarded with propaganda every second and can't do a thing about it. Here we have the ability to "Rip down the billboards" "Destroy the 'news station' pumping out trash", and "burn all their marketing outfits".

Yes it would be censorship and no you cannot expect a free speech platform to be shill free.

How can there be free speech, which would be the only argument against censorship, if they can literally just manipulate Voat and control content visibility.

How does the idea of free speech even come into play when people don't have an equal voice here? SBBH makes sure it stays that way too

If you are promoting censorship you are anti-free speech. If the children at SBBH have your panties in a twist, grow thicker skin. I seriously find the people complaining about SBBH more annoying than those that hang out there.

EDIT: and you linked img doesn't load so your link is worthless.

No. It is not their speech that is getting them banned. It is their actions.

Exactly.

The multiple account + up/downvoat farming faggotry is the problem.

The problem with holding virtues like free speech is that in the end it is an honor system that gives people the freedom to abuse and cheat that system. We must maintain constant vigil to keep ourselves safe from such abusers. Many of whom violate the rules with the intent to do good (at first).

If voat was to block VPNs, I'd permaban myself.

Oooh. Concern trolling.

Block obvious trolls.

Don't go to subs with shitty mods.

There you go, faggots. Problem solved.

blocking is their cushion to get away with what they do. Meanwhile they control the majority of narratives and visibility on the site

I don't even notice it. I block them as they appear. I block every subverse that posts porn, and every obvious time wasting shill.

Voat is the same for me now as it was a year ago.

This. Any form of censorship is complete aids ridden faggotry. No exceptions.
