Um, ofc bullshit floods through here, but it's a different batch of bullshit from reddit's shit. For anyone capable of detecting and analyzing biases in sources, Voat is a refreshing switch from Reddit, because biases are bit more honest here. They still exist, and are everywhere, but they are more straightforward and less astroturfy. Maybe our shills are just less talented, but either way it's a nice change.

I don't see much straight propaganda on reddit. What I did notice was the banning of topics.

Not sure what you mean by that. /v/news mods never add any tags like they claim they would (misleading, opinion, unverified source etc.)

talent has nothing to do with voting (which decides what gets shown vs. buried)

They really need to use unabbreviated tags as well. A tiny [MT] that blends in with the background is barely noticeable and kind of ruins the point of using flairs to mark content.

Its still easier to voice dissent here, though.
