I PM'd him a few weeks ago. He said that any mention of him resulted in massive DV's and that any new content would probably get buried. @lockeProposal come back please, I miss your things greatly.

yeah this. why talk here when every comment eventually gets like 16 downvoats each? v/protectvoat v/soapboxbanhammer is the sjw cabal that goes around right-thinking voat with the blessing of the sjw admins. they need to get gone before great ops like locke come back- if ever.

edit: here come the cabal downvoats.

sbbh? Or sdbh? I think you must mean sdbh.

As far as Locke... I think he was more upset about so-called "far-righters" shitting up his sub.

They (locke) actually left because they disagreed with some of the stronger "racism" and probably imbecile like responces they would get in response to their posts. Locke made a a rather heated post to say that felt so and didn't want those kinds of responses. Afterwards locke was downvoted pretty mercilessly. Must have felt like shit to locke because locke did contribute quite heavily and in a positive way only to get a backlash when they made their personal stance known. I also enjoyed lockes posts and would respond sometimes with obscure bits of history and they would embellish on it. It's too bad politics got in the way. It's probably like oil and vinegar because voat is for full freedom of speech but locke didn't want unrestrained racism or sort of imbecile responses to their insightful posts.

I don't know about any sjw reddit cabal but it wouldn't suprise me either.

@LockeProposal posted lots of awesome things. It was always nice to take a break from the turmoil of voat and enjoy his quiet, educational anecdotes.

I concur!!!! I hate it when good people leave as @LockeProposal did ... he/she always posted great stuff and we need so much more of it! If you're still out there, come back!

I'm glad to see I'm not alone here.

@OwlChemy and @SomeGuyFromCanada, you two do a good job with fascinating historical posts, (I myself have been lacking lately), but nothing compares the quality OC @LockEProposal provided.

Edit: and @ArticDweller

Definitely agree. I recall the post where Locke said he/she couldn't take the crap anymore and decided to hang it up. It was sad ... many tried to encourage Locke to stay. Was definitely an assets to Voat and a real shame it went down as I guess it did.

The worst thing is that you can still find him. He'd rather play to a nearly empty room than the voat audience. That says a lot about voat's audience.

I'd say every reason posted here is correct for his departure. It was a constellation of factors, but you could sum it up as "shitty user base".

You know how the anti-immigration crowd is always making that analogy about 90% chocolate cake, 10% shit: would you like a piece? Online communities are like that, too. Congratulations, Aryan embarrassments. You're the muslim beaners of the net. Reddit's censorship is Trump's fucking wall.

This is why we can't have nice things.

It's funny though, I've discovered some parallels between the refugee situation and the influx of reddit migrants.

They really don't like it when you point it out. As I've learned in the past.

But honestly, those users red pilled me on the subject because I've now seen what a bunch of angry, uneducated assholes are capable of when they choose to not even attempt to integrate with the community.

Nope, they just showed up and immediately started shitting all over everything.

Reddit won their battle and Voat lost its burgeoning struggle for identity.

We need to call people out when theyre being shitty to be shitty. We also need to combat the stupid with encouragement to our fellow voaters. I hate how its getting to become 4chan level at times.

Vote is infested with negativity and racism. It's hard to get people to respond with reason and light, especially when their answers get downvoted to hell and often enough hidden.

(banning trolls) is something we need on voat

I disagree. We need a lot of things, but banning trolls is not one of them. As soon as we do that we set off on the journey toward Redditization. I think the first step we should take is to stop hiding downvoted posts and to promote heavily up and downvoted posts. Obvious spam and flooding should be deleted, but that's all.

@LockeProposal was Voater I held in high regard and I miss her dearly. Her post were among the ones I valued the most. Voat lost part of its soul.

You are right. I don't know why I was so sure it is a woman.
