Obligatory comment stating that I just joined moments ago due to this policy announcement. I would rather read and see things I don't agree with than limit/censor speech.

I couldn't agree more. The fact that the new CEO, the founder, the beacon of hope, proceeded to shoot himself in the foot by DIRECTLY contradicting himself and lying about the past is what made me finally motorvoat over here.

Welcome! If you stick to your own subs it's rare you'll see anything too crazy. If I see something I don't agree with I move on or occasionally comment. Downvoats are mainly used here to get rid of spam since people can't simply create more accounts to brigade if they disagree(you have to get 100 comment upvotes before you can downvote). It's good to have you here and to continue seeing the community grow.

I wonder if only blinded pro-male subreddits like /r/TheRedPill will be hit or also blinded pro-female subreddits like /r/TwoXChromosomes or /r/AskWomen. Both spew hateful things about the other gender but /r/TheRedPill is the one most commonly picked up.

Edit: Before anyone starts accusing me of bandwagoning for Voats, I was literally posting this wondering if the servers will be overloaded for 3-4 days again.

Every time I go to /r/TwoXChromosomes, It seems like every poster on the frontpage there has been locked in a sex dungeon for 20 years and has just escaped to post about it on reddit.

I'll admit, I have no love for red pillers. Mostly a sad lot of angry and bitter people who just can't seem to make it in this world. Still, I would be happy to stand shoulder to shoulder with them in the name of free speech, and in the name of humanity I'll be giving them a fair shot on an individual basis.

Hell, my ancestors were a cranky and anti social lot when they got shipped out of Ireland. Folks went around saying they were stealing jobs, raping women, drinking too much and drowning society in loose morals. They turned out alright.

Red Pillers, Rad Fems, Nazis and Communists. C'mon over to Voat. Breathe easy and free in the air around here.

Is that a serious question? RedPill will go, 2x and ask women will be worshiped. It isn't even about the gender thing, it's about whos content suits the wider social media majority. Huffman and Ohanian are concerned only with making sure the corporate semen they're about to swallow tastes good.

I actually like the limiting of upgoats available. People post higher quality content in hopes of getting one of the few upvoat someone has available so then they too can upvoat content themselves.

Hey I'm all for more members to join Voat. It's awesome and I welcome all of em. But maybe it's just me, but I'm noticing a HUGE difference in quality of comments and the level of kindness.

A couple days ago I was deleting my old Reddit account. Comment by comment. That took a lot of time and it sucked. What sucked more was seeing my comments change over time. I became so much more bitter and threw out easy comment just for the karma.

At voat I feel like I can speak my mind and say what I truly mean or feel. The red message envelope doesn't automatically mean I pissed someone off anymore. It's just a reaction or an enticing argument. I love it.

TL;DR they are welcome, but please leave the shitty attitude behind and start fresh.

Hopefully the 100 CCP before the training wheels comes off helps keep things civil. On the other hand, the most recent exodus caused a huge drop in the post quality, especially that first weekend when 3/4 of the population had upvoats, but no downvoats. It's slowly getting better.

[–] Stip 1 points 44 points (+45|-1) ago 

I actually changed my approach to up and down voting. On Reddit I down voted because I disagreed or if a post didn't give me the enjoyment I was looking for in a sub.

Here I even upvote stuff I'm not agreeing with just because I enjoy the proper discussions. Downvoats are reserved for jackasses and racists.

[–] HomelessSquirrel 0 points 12 points (+12|-0) ago 

I really like the 100 CCP rule and even the 20 CCP rule. You have to work for your place in the community, but it isn't impossible, and it stopped me from being a lurker. I almost never posted on the other site because I'd get buried anyway. Now it's like I have an actual voice, and it means something. I also upvoat more comments now, just because I know what it can mean to somebody. (Not to say I throw upvoats willy-nilly).

[–] DonnieDumpster69 1 points 31 points (+32|-1) ago 

I hope people remember that Reddit isn't burning just because of its terrible management, but because of the community it's been cultivating, too. It's gotten full of ultra-pc shills who bend over backwards to justify any terrible idea the admins come up with (it's not censorship if it's a private company!), wannabe 4chan kiddies (hey check it out I still make advice animals in 20 fucking 15) and repost-spamming power users (Gallowboob and iBleedOrange). Not to mention the god awful novelty accounts.

The whole thing is rotten, from the top to the bottom. The only thing worth saving are the weird/honest niche subs. Once something gets popular it gets watered down by the lowest common denominator. If the users flood Voat expect it to become Reddit 2 instead of its successor. Most of the people here who came from Reddit did so because they value their free speech and freedom to share whatever they want. We got the kind of redditor that made Reddit interesting back in 2009. If we get flooded by them the decay will speed up and leave us with 2015 Reddit.

We already got Unidan coming over here. Same name and everything, went over to /v/introductions and introduced himself as Unidan, riding the karma high from Reddit. Next thing you know we're going to get more Reddit "celebrities" trying to invest in their Voat count in case Reddit shits the bed for good.

I say fuck 'em. The site's full of lurkers and casuals who just come to browse /r/pics, /r/funny and /r/MotherfuckingAdviceAnimalsGoddamnPeopleYouAreRetarded. If the ship crashes they can go back to Facebook or 9gag to continue their steady flow of reposted stolen content and stale memes.

We're also going to get an influx of lukewarm users. The kind who don't contribute anything positive, but are ready to go once there's shilling to be done. The kind of cannon fodder whose only purpose seems to be to pick a side and start petty drama (I hope to god no SRS or SubReddiDrama users en up here).

I hope to god, allah, yahweh, baphomet and Bruce Springsteen that this site doesn't go down the shitter like Reddit did. Even if it means having 1/30 of its userbase.

I think we should upgrade our servers right away before we have 2-3 days downtown again. We should be ready to welcome all non-SJW and free thinkers.
