Agreed on all points. We have a legitimate opportunity to build something amazing here. Let's not cave!

I agree. I said before that I'll wait out the weekend to see if I'll go back, but the longer I'm on voat, the less I want to. I'll think about it come Monday, but things are so fresh here. I know I could go back, but merely firing Pao isn't enough.

This is what I was going to do too. Then randomly I just felt like I had to block reddit on my computer. So I did. Now there is no going back. Voat is here to stay and so am I.

this post got bigger than I expected. feels really great that this message resonated with friends here, I wrote it because people were missing the forest for a tree when Pao left. KiA could be the school for a group that in the future will stand for truth and fairness in media more broadly, and be able to go toe to toe with the elite and their tactics of division and censorship.

it will probably take heroes in the future willing to be blacklisted before the idea that it is wrong to force your preferences and thoughts on other people sinks in to a part of the broader culture, and we get consensus that SJW objectives and tactics are not okay.

key is the idea that legal free speech on your private time cannot result in economic blacklisting.

There's only a couple communities over there that I visited with any regularity these days anyways (they don't have a presence here as of now unfortunately, and they were relatively untouched by the typical Reddit drama, so I don't see them jumping to Voat anytime soon).

Plus, I think maintaining a presence at KIA there is important still. Need to keep it about and on topic so that new comers who find it can learn.

But otherwise, man, Voat feels a lot better, IMO.

Yea it does and KIA still needs it presence there like you said. As it's one of the few sub that can fight back against the SJW cancer there.

I agree so much with you. We still need to maintain a presence there. People are posting on there all the time about how KiA threads make it to the front page(which they probably get deleted off there) and how we always end up in undelete. but I am staying on voat.

I know there are tons of posts about Pao being fired - understandable, that is big news in this whole thing - but who's been saying "let's go back to reddit?"

Straw men, probably. ;)

It's not easy to ignore propaganda. Even when you're fighting it. Especially when you're fighting it. Since mid day we've been seeing how misogynists pushed Pao off Reddit. At least they're crediting is with something, for once. And they're mad. That's at least one victory. It's easy to sort of buy all that a little. Then, a reflexive concern of the community. "Oh man, I hope people don't suddenly think it's all good."

You sort of hit the nail on the head, though. We DON'T think everything is okay just because she's gone.

After being on Reddit for close to five years and then coming here about a year ago I don't think I can go back. When I visit Reddit it feels foreign to me, Voat is my home now.

it just seems like one big ad site and otherwise bad content. Most evenings it seems that a picture of Oreo cookies is front page worthy or a McDonalds logo and those are mixed in with some dank maymay's.

I agree with you, but I'm encountering a lot of what I call the Google+ problem. Many of the communities have been created here, but not many people have come over from those communities, so they're virtual ghost towns. I'm currently going to keep using both, but unless there's a large growth in certain communities that I frequent, I don't know if I'll be able to stay.

So do I! That's why I call it the Google+ problem. A clearly superior service doesn't have the same number of people so, even though it's better, It isn't as good an experience.

Use SubWeave (available for Chrome, and soon for Firefox) to use reddit and Voat at the same time, but preferably wait until the end of No Reddit Weekend to do so.

Well that's the thing, she may not be CEO anymore but she's stil part of the board as an advisor from what I've heard.

Edit: Yep, so she's not completely out, I'm going to be pessimist here and still believe she'll try to push her shit. http://time.com/3953655/reddit-ellen-pao/

"I've trashed your website and riled up a large portion of the userbase and everyone is very angry about it"

"Can you stick around and advise us"

wtf....

Probably: "Yeah... the userbase is really hating us right now. I think you should leave.

-Over my cold dead hands.

-At this rate there won't have a user base by the end of the year.

Fine I'll leave but I'll sue.

-How about an advisor position?

-Deal."

They probably wanna avoid a lawsuit if they can... I don't see why considering how weak of a case it'd be.
