I think, best tactic for Atko and Putitout would be to not even acknowledge of Wu's existence. Never respond to her attempts/provocations.

It's quite simple, but I guess really hard to do, unfortunately.

Yes just totally ignore him. They have no power if people take no notice of them.

Hard? They have so many messages to deal with anyway. If you don't bother looking into Gamergate, is Brianna Wu a big name? Hell, is she even a big name if you do? I don't think she's going to have anything to say that's going to stand out in their inboxes above bug reports, abusive subverse reports, potential investors, and all the other crap they must get.

I doubt Atko or Puttitout will give her the time of day. They're busy revamping voat's net code, talking to venture capitalists, etc. and LWu's angry email will be completely indistinguishable from the hundreds of pieces of hatemail SRS sends every day.

talking to venture capitalists

Hopefully they won't be getting VC money any time soon. Once they accept it, the end of voat will not be far behind.

Ten years. Exactly like with Reddit. There is abolutely no reason to think that Voat will stay like this forever but at least we have some good years ahead of us until we have to begin looking for alternatives.

I've posted this somebody else already, but I'm still wondering if it is really so expensive to run a site like Voat.

If it’s a true free speech site, you they don’t need all those 'Community Outreach Officers' ie shadowbanning twats and other administrative overhead.

Instead Voat only needs to keep maybe five guys supplied with booze, some servers and a lawyer on speed-dial. So if the admins guzzle Cointreau XO daily, maybe a million max per year in running costs? So show some unobtrusive ads? (but I'm really talking out of my ass here).

Brianna Wu, keep in mind if you ever DID come here, you have zero pull, you could not brigade, you could not dominate things, and you could be thrown out even more easily than you were on Reddit. r/GamerGhazi tossed you out for reasons I really can't fault them for, so bear in mind if you ever came here, we have even less tolerance for the crap you pulled there.

In short, if you want to say your two cents, fine, Voat accepts all opinions, but you can't force us to listen nor silence what you don't want to see.

That's why he's bypassing everything and going straight to what could potentially be the achilles heel. If he can influence just a few people who run this site he doesn't have to bother with brigading or anything else.

Based on what I can gather, Wu turned Ghazi into a propaganda mill for whatever her opinions were and silenced all dissent with bans, and when Wu sided with Ellen Pao even after Ghazi took a stand with the rest of Reddit against her, the straw finally broke the camel's back and they deposed Wu.

Ghazi doesn't tolerate dissent from anyone.

You must have people running this site who won't be influenced by the SJW's because they'll try their utmost to weasel their way in and manipulate things. This is why hierarchical set-ups can be so fragile, as soon as one individual at the top succumbs to SJW influence everything will be destroyed very rapidly and there's no way back.

Fuck yeah, I'd be down for a revival of usenet. That's basically why Reddit was appealing to me in the first place, it's a giant forum that covers every topic in one place.

As a side note, I have no idea why nobody has done anything with the concept, there is so much potential with what you can do with it. It's like everybody just forgot about it.

I think it's only a matter of time before they are infiltrated and compromised by SJWs.

I see alot of people saying "just ignore wu" This is absolutely the wrong thing to do. These narcissistic sociopaths have built an empire on the backs of the weak and the passive. There is a reason PETA goes after rich ladies in fur instead of bikers in leather, it's because it's easy. They know there is no contest, no danger for them. Same damn thing here. Ignoring them will not make them go away, they will follow you, they will stalk you, they will take whatever they can and then shit all over what is left. All the while they will demonize you, setting up their fake little attacks against themselves, claiming the moral high ground and playing the victim. There has got to be a push back at some point or they will go forever. Also, don't just assume Atko and Co. will always conform to whatever ideals you have projected upon them, they are human and we have already had one prime example of people starting out with great ideals that turned into the all singing, all dancing crap of the world.

It's the same with SJWs. They go for the gaming community because they are already tolerant and welcome everybody. Imagine what would happen if they went to bikers and told them: "Your movement is so sexist! Why are there almost no girls here? And why do they have to ride on the back of the bike?! YOU WHITE CIS SCUM!!!" Boy, it would be a sight to watch :).

But you can't fight a war on Twitter. It's their ground, and they'll draw you out into a position of weakness and then beat you there, on their turf.

In the real world these people can't exist, and would easily be beaten. That's the power of shit like Twitter, which also gives a voice to cowards and pussies.

The tough part is that we actually like stuff and want to spend our time enjoying it and talking about it. Games for example. These people crave power and want to subvert communities and build power cliques. They are willing to spend all of their time on this dumb shit.

I love how the gaming media never ever mentions that Wu is a transsexual, because the readership would know how insane it is that some mentally ill guy is now the poster child for "women" in the gaming industry. Despite the fact that

A. He's not a woman.

B. He's never done anything of note or substance in the gaming industry at all.

HA! I've never really been to this subverse and it doesn't really align with some of the things I'm passionate about. That said, the title struck me as funny and I had to laugh when I read about this. I have a bias, an at times unfair bias, about this younger generation. So, initially I just cracked up that this person's approach to trying to figure out how to contact Voat is to post something on Twitter...not execute a search or solve the problem themselves...instead, put it on other people to do the work for you. So, I found that classic but then also the naivety in the question: Does anyone know someone who works at Voat? It's two guys working way far too hard to be bothered.

Why have you guys not complained to the FTC about wu?

WU spent kickstarter money on a bike, and made a shitty game. The FTC is investigating kickstarter fraud, and suing the crap out of people. Whether they have money or not.

Seriously, an allegation that wu is exploiting the system to milk donation money is spot on. Wu spends more time on social media, then on developing shit games. They are not a dev, just a trouble maker who rants on twitter.
