Had a reddit account for over 8 years, not one comment deleted ever. Came to voat about 4 months ago after reading the How Reddit Was Destroyed (ver3.0) thread And this weekend I got my first ever notice of a comment deleted!
Much to my dismay I was curious, did I accidentally violate Swiss laws? Did I mistakenly dox someone? what little comment of mine could warrant such derision? Well low and behold my comment from this thread in fat people hate, where I point out the futility of shaming people in a forum they'll never see it, in the hopes of helping them loose weight.
Some FPH mods actually believe they are helping people
I've been in the FPH community for about 6 months, and considered it my reddit home. Anti-obesity it's something I feel very strongly about, not just from a FPH fat-shaming standpoint, but also from a "how do we solve the obesity problem" active standpoint.
and all I did was point out that logic is futile if they never see the content directed towards them.
Low and behold I make a thread on v/voat discussing my comment deletion
and who turns up?
FPH mod: @12_Years_A_Toucan openly states:
We don't allow people who are there to fight, argue, and comment dissenting opinions to the community and our community likes it that way
AAAAAAND another FPH MOD confirming censorship:
user @ https://voat.co/user/SportyStrawberry:
DING DING DING!
YES we censor dissenting opinions from our subverse, as is our right. We have never claimed otherwise. Are you daft?
So there you have it folks see for yourself how this community thinks it's better than the down voat button. Think it can decide what you can and can't read. Feast your eyes on CENSORSHIP.
i had fun writing this time to play tf2 a bit and let some comments roll in. :)
