It's really not hard to get.
A few people with DV capabilities can just go through a users submission/comment history just indiscriminately down.vote everything.
I'll get asked questions and then down voted regardless of my reply.
2-3 people can gang up on somebody and silence their account in a matter of minutes.
So this forces users to:
Not post controversial content.
Not reply if the reply isn't what people want to here.
Never reply to certain users that will always down vote you. That means I'm asked questions and forced not to reply, because if I do I'll get indiscriminately down voted.
Users are exploiting this system to silence other users they don't like or agree with.
There's all kinds of people complaining about this, not just me.
So something needs to get done about this.
It's a censorship system.
That means voat has censorship.
I can't believe you all can't agree with what I'm saying.
