It's obvious that it's been astroturfed to the front page though. It's a knockoff chinese sunglasses company.

What part of that would appeal to the average member of Voat enough to upvote it a hundred and fifty times?


[–] dv1155 2 points 13 points (+15|-2) ago 

I upvoted it because I really like small business stories. I really doubt it's being inflated as 150 votes isn't even that hard to achieve, and voat doesn't seem like the sort of place that does underhanded deals like that.

It's not a small business you tool. It's a Chiang Kai-shek distributor that paid a marketing company to create a narrative and spam this site. And you fell for it.

Who know, man. People can be bought. I don't have much faith in any form of authority, or the mods.

Everyone in the know, knows that Reddit is dying.

It would simply make sense that they'd want to infiltrate this place next.

If it's really the actual person who started their business - I'd be happy to give them some internet space to promote it. Is IAmA so clogged that legit AMAs are getting pushed out (hint: no)?

OP is answering questions thoughtfully.

Foxconn is based in China - that doesn't automatically render their products crap.

You're asserting their lenses and frames are cheap - are they? Have you tried them or seen reviews (actual question - not cynical or rhetorical)?


[–] Grifter42 [S] 4 points -4 points (+0|-4) ago 

I don't believe in Foxconn either.

More products should be made in America. Even if it is an American owned company, which I doubt it is... Probably a shell corporation for the chinese, I don't want companies selling Chinese manufactured products in America, when we could be making our own sunglasses.

It really depends. One day I too hope to open a business that perhaps sources from china so production costs could be lowered. It wouldn't be cheap knockoffs, but an original product. Still to have first hand information on how I can contact those companies and what specifics I have to go through could be helpful to me at that time.

I'm not sure how you imagine the average voater is though. But I don't want to be a person who works for a shitty company for my living. I rather own the company.

> dealing with the chinese

Good luck with that


[–] Grifter42 [S] 3 points -3 points (+0|-3) ago 

Well, good luck with that. But if and when you do, don't advertise it on Voat. This isn't an advertising platform.
