The problem with reddit seemed to be that nobody understood if you don't like something, don't look at it. I don't like racism, so I will not go to those subverses if they pop up. I don't like shoata, I don't look at that. If you don't like something, don't look at it.

There should be a block option for individual posts to help out with that.

Easier said than done. I don't block stuff cause i perversely enjoy seeing inappropriate or incorrect ideas that challenge my view of the world. But those who do still can't avoid it.

/v/news for instance has loads of top rated posts by racists. And I don't mean people implying or even saying offensive things about minorities. I mean people who are mods of literally racist subs. They then bring the comments section in a direction of "F- these people for existing amirite?" If that's your cup of tea, you can't really avoid it and eventually you will take your eyes off the site entirely.

See while I agree with that principle and I had no problem with 'politically incorrect' content on reddit, the problem on voat is that it's drowning out other content. I was subscribed to fatpeoplehate on reddit because although I don't really hate fat people I enjoyed checking it out every now and again for a quick laugh, I had to block fatpeoplehate on voat within about 5 minutes of registering because almost the entire front page was FPH. Similarly I don't really like the social justice movement but it gets very tiring when every comment section on voat contains whining about feminism or women or black people etc. and I often have to scroll very far down to see any real discussion of the topic at hand.

Yeah I've been lurking for a while and finally got registered today, noticed this as well. I guess the trick is to stick to smaller subs for now, and hopefully things will quiet down over time.

Sure, it's more prevalent as those users trickle over from Reddit. However, I just don't care. I don't involve myself in those threads. I recognize that it isn't constructive to do so. From the comments I've been reading here over the last month, I feel that there are a great deal of level headed and mature individuals, in spite of any hate there is. Immaturity is fleeting and those users will move on, I bet.

This really is a simple concept that too many people seem to not understand
