Gotta love it: No replies, no discussion, just downvotes. "Guns baaad!!. . . ."

I cropped the image. The first reply inferred that taking out the shooter would be bad because there are people in the street. lol

wouldn't want them to get shot! seriously though cops actually shoot civilians all of the time but that's because of their training and also because they're mostly not that clever.

I've consistently talked against that on voat. We are pretty good but I'd like to see it at zero. Any opinion that you disagree with so bad that it needs a down vote needs a logical rebuttal. The only reason to not comment is if there is already one there.

Downvotes are for people that can't deal with ideas they are uncomfortable with. Like reddit with the idea that people should take some responsibility for their own safety. They are uncomfortable with thinking so they downvote.

Nope. I have rebutted a huge number of logical comments.

But I just downvoat comments that are low effort racism. I see it is prevalent enough that the positive reinforcement in the discussion will cancel any good I could do. But I don't like seeing it so I downvoat it.

Bring any level of logic and you get a discussion from me. If the best you can muster is "nigs gunna nig, " or "but we are all the same" you just get the down button.

The power to downvote is earned. You might feel that every stupid thing said deserves a response explaining why it is stupid, but others like myself may not agree.

I DV comments, and don't respond to their comment or response, if it is so fucking dumb and illogical, that there is NO WAY you will have a productive conversation. They are easy to spot. EG "ALL NIGGERS AND MUSLIMS SHOULD BE KILLED IN THE STREET." There is nothing logical to say to someone who deals in absolutes like this. Any normal response that says something like "while we should be vigilant of specific cultures and the people from those cultures, there are many people who are not criminals or radicals, they have nothing to do with the people you hate" would just be met with, "fucking nigger lover." It's basically the other side of SJW's shutting down conversations by saying "racist!"

You're not wrong, but it happens way less often here.

You know, I really don't think most downvoters are doing so to deliberately try to silence someone. They see the downvote buytton as a "I dislike you/your post, and here's an official way to disagree" button. OFC, there are shills who use the downvote button as a deliberate silencing tactic, but I'm pretty sure most users are innocent of that intent.

People downvote here all the time without commenting, it's not a reddit thing. Happens a bit less here because its more of an echo chamber than reddit

Seeing news you're not able to see on other platforms like reddit is great, echoing ideas that are censored elsewhere isn't that bad. But I guess it's a perspective thing.

REDDIT HAS ARRIVED

It does give me the idea of mounting a cameras on guns. The cops are using body cams, why not gun cams? And a great critique on your shooting technique.

That's a really good idea. I've heard stories of the cops "unintentionally" covering their body cams right before something goes down. I don't remember if they were beating someones head in with a night stick or shooting someone though.

That is legit scarier than a person gunning down 50 people. This is a person that is admitting he has no right to life, he has no personal responsibility, and am willing to let people suffer before the state steps in. Not his comment but literally everyone that downvoated him. I mean wtf.

It's crazy that people have been so brainwashed that they abhor the very tool that could save their sorry asses.

That's the point, he isn't allowed to own a gun so he reached for his phone. Which would you rather in this situation?

Would have been great if a gun toting camera man saved the day. Would it be different if he were throwing knives? LMAO. Reddit SUCKS.
