Voat and these kinds of forums no longer interest me. I barely visit these kinds of places anymore. I don't get my news from them and I don't exchange ideas on them.
People who have consistently contributed and who I think deserve it have been promoted. If you don't like it, bitch to someone else. If I overlooked someone who's been a long-time contributor... well, tough shit.
I hope you folks are able to keep this place going. GLHF, gonna delete account in a few minutes.
