The question is, how do we stop this from happening on Voat?

You don't. Subverses may have rules against shilling for when it's really obvious, but it can't and shouldn't be a global rule, because of freedom of speech.

Freedom of speech doesn't mean you can't make rules to fight against those who are disruptive. Trolling, shilling, flame trolls etc are usually banned on forums for a good reason. You can't make a rule and say "we don't ban anyone for anything" because then you will end up with a million bots spamming your forum. It's not freedom of speech at that point. It's just common sense to ban disruptive people and bots.

The only way I see is for the users of voat to practice critical thinking. There are certain users that carry a narrative throughout all of their submissions. I know people have opinions and beliefs so that carries through on what they're interested in and subsequently what they post, I'm not talking about that. There are people here already who post topics to illicit certain responses from us.

From the SJWs to the white supremacists to the whatever these guys are to the military/intelligence complex. You can't stop it. You just have to think about everything that is being inputted into your brain and how it makes you feel. Then who stands to gain from making you feel this way. Fuck I need more coffee.

Well, the invitation only thing that seems to be happening right now may make it more difficult/costly to recruit shills.

"revforcemayan" is that guy. They already said they were full and twelve hours later you said you were interested. Let it go.

They want me to sell my dignity for only $70 a week? That's insulting. I demand at least $150.

I will give you no less than $200 and that's my final offer!
