I want to let you guys know that several people, including me, suspect that @LauraIngalls is a shill playing innocent. She disrupts and distracts by attacking others and egging on shills while pretending that she’s just naive.

We’ve tried helping Laura countless times. Today, I spent over an hour helping her over private message. She wrote me this morning and acted like she didn’t know how to tell when she was being pinged to other subverses, why she couldn’t block anonymous users with numbers as their username, why they always attack her, and more.

I made her this graphic to teach her how to tell. Here are excerpts from my reply where I explained things to her. When I started Voat, I was extremely naive too so I felt sorry for her. I even had to tell her how to save the graphic to her computer.

Right after that, I see that she had made this post. She is very aware that that talking about Jews is a touchy subject. She started being shilled. After I had just spent over an hour helping her, she does this. Then she sends me another private message and says this! I replied to this comment and let her know that we aren’t going to help her anymore. We’ve tried several times. I think her innocent act is fake.

So, if you see Laura egging on the shills, please downvote her and treat her like you would any shill.

@Bopper you are our witness that we have tried to help her several times.

And how in gods name is /u/GodsAngell not in that exact same category? Hell, for the longest time a few of us thought that those 2 ladies were the same exact person.... I ended up deciding that I don't believe they are the same person, but that just goes to show how similar their mannerisms, posting styles, attitudes, and personalities actually are at times...

I didn’t make a full list of shill suspects.

Maybe she is. We need to watch her. Not everyone who overreacts is a shill. If you see her acting like a shill, downvote her.

She is, for me. Just saying.

I'm glad you mention Laura. I have suspected this. I also think Laura has a bunch of accounts. I can see a pattern/writing style with a few others. Laura egged me on a few hours ago.

[–] srayzie [S] 2 points 2 points (+4|-2) ago 

I would love for you to send me a private message and show me what you mean by writing styles. I thinks she’s probably got alts too. If I was a shill, that would be a fun character to play. Everyone thinks she’s a fricken nut case so she gets away with more, but gets shilled, which disrupts and distracts. It’s a smart way to do it.

Now she’s playing victim. Milking it. 🙄

I think you’d all be well advised to use your votes more, especially the upvotes. If commentary adds to the discussion, upvote it.

I’m not looking to pick on OP, who’s clearly been taking a lot of flak recently, but @srayzie’s account helps to illustrate this point.

Over approx. three years of posting, srayz has managed to comment nearly 30 times a day. In this same time period, srayz has averaged giving only 3 comment upvotes per day.

If someone is adding to the discussion, whether or not you agree with them you should be upvoting them. Even lurkers can do this. They don’t cost a thing!

And they will help to enable the more thoughtful people to post more things, and in turn give out more upvotes. Consider, then, using downvotes for spam. Low effort commentary may be left alone, unless it is complete tripe you’d like to see less of. This would create three distinctive tiers of comment quality to help casuals decipher what’s going on!

[–] srayzie [S] 3 points 2 points (+5|-3) ago 

I agree. I need to get better about upvoting. I forget about it. Upvoting is very important as well.

[–] srayzie [S] 3 points 0 points (+3|-3) ago 

I edited and added that.

[–] kevdude 4 points -1 points (+3|-4) ago 

Sounds like a bunch of hippy bullshit TBH.

[–] heygeorge 1 points 3 points (+4|-1) ago 

You use your votes. You’ve also offered to sticky a comment of mine about this on PV (were I to flesh it out).

So this seems like a peculiar answer?

@clamhurt_legbeard, @MolochHunter, @Shizy, @srayzie :)

To increase users unity and reduce users division, I suggest to add a reminder to the sidebar to GreatAwakening. The number 1 in this screenshot shows the suggested reminder and its suggested location at https://i.postimg.cc/VLB831Qr/sidebar-unite-reminder.jpg

This reminder is inspired from Qanon's message #2174. I suggest to add this reminder at the top of the sidebar. So that all users see it without having to scroll down the page.

This reminder is very effective on QRV. You can see a real example at https://voat.co/v/QRV/

[–] srayzie [S] 3 points -1 points (+2|-3) ago 

We’re running out of room on the side bar. We have a character limit. It doesn’t look like it’s affective on QRV because they are falling apart. They even removed all links from the side bar. Thanks anyway.

[–] Francewhoa1905151045 1 points 7 points (+8|-1) ago  (edited ago)

Thanks @Srayzie and all moderators :) Good idea to sticky this post. It might be useful for newcomers. I upvoated it.

[–] srayzie [S] 4 points 6 points (+10|-4) ago 

Important

Upvote each other too! Upvote good posts and good comments.

[–] Moorgarten 2 points -2 points (+0|-2) ago 

I Could use some upvoats to finally downvote this negative stuff! Thank You!

Free speech while it is a right given us, it has limits. Yep I said it. Here is an illustration of what I mean.

When I was about 12 just coming into my oats.....as it were, my grandmother told me to do something. Well.... I got hardheaded about it. I bowed up (bad juju!!!) At my grandmother. "I got rights," I protested.

She put her hands on her hips and said, yes you do son. But your rights stop at the end of my nose.

Ones rights to free speech atop at the point of infringing on others rights.

[–] 59Geezer 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Rights come with inherent responsibilities.

[–] OriginalRealityCheck 1 points 1 points (+2|-1) ago 

That's true for all rights and freedoms.

[–] W45P__ 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

what right are porn posters actually infringing upon tho?

[–] PacaGoat 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago  (edited ago)

If you have to ask then you are ignorant of reality.

Vulgarity and assualting people with filth is not protected speech. Slapping people in the face with perversion is not a right.

thanks for explaining all this. I came here to get the real news (after Reddit started censoring) I have been following Q since Oct 2017. Much of the subject matter discussed is all very familiar to me as my long history, 30+ years, is confirmed by many of you.

What's unfamiliar is the board culture. I have done my best to navigate this online format. I am grateful for my past online IT coursework for my degree as much of the requirements were conducted in discussion boards monitored by the professor.

As an older adult, attempting to get my peers here, and turn off THEIR TELEVISIONS, yet they complain that the atmosphere here is "uncomfortable".

I have ignored derogatory comments about Boomers and have explained in these discussions numerous times that there are many conservative Boomers that are woke, they are Trump supporters, and it's important that these boards do not alienate them. They stick with their televisions and newspapers because it's something they're used to and if they're scared of these boards then they're not going to really learn the total truth that's going on here.

I was harassed by somebody yesterday and I gave up after a little bit I'll have to go back and find the name of the person. They eventually gave up. But their comments I felt were ridiculous, telling me to get out of here and trying to shame me and insult me. ( I'm old and nothing scares me anymore ha ha)

Also and finally... I do not know how to contact the mods privately to let them know that something's going on. Some instruction on that would be helpful. Thank you and happy Sunday😃

PS he said he was going to report me for spam (comments that I made in somebody else's post.)

NOTE: have found contact info for MODS on full page on my laptop. Do not see it on my mobile phone App which is what I usual use to follow on here.
