Fuck the advertisers. If you want to nuke reddit from orbit you do this same thing but you send it to Amazon AWS (Their web host) instead:

http://aws.amazon.com/aup/

Fight fire with fire.

Offensive Content. Content that is defamatory, obscene, abusive, invasive of privacy, or otherwise objectionable, including content that constitutes child pornography, relates to bestiality, or depicts non-consensual sex acts.

Their quarantine policy explicitly admits that they knowingly host offensive content.

Could we please just let reddit live so the SJW's etc STAY there and don't come here, its bad enough that members from every banned sub are 'knocking on the door' of Voat, but at least they tend to stay in their own subs .......

That's the thing, the SJW see this as a war and they won't ever be content to stay there. They will attempt to advance here anyway.

They won't stay there. Keep in mind, their goal is not what they state. They aren't out to create 'safe places' or ensure 'gentle speech' or whatever the fuck they're saying now. They're out to feed their outrage addiction, pure and simple. They get off on the triggering and the screeching and they'll soon look around reddit and realize that they've driven away everyone that outraged them. THEN they're coming here.

I doubt Amazon will ever do anything to reddit.

No. Even if their image is well-known, it just means that more ammunition exists. Reddit's advertisers will pull if enough repeated pressure is put on them. A similar tactic was used against Gawker during GamerGate, and it started to output results.

The problem isn't that Reddit is too big to hypothetically fall because of brand recognition, it's that there's too many people still visiting the site and giving it clicks and attention, thus an incentive for advertisers. If you want to damage reddit, hurt their advertisers and userbase.

Reddit pays amazon over $30k a month in hosting so you're probably right, but that's all the more reason to try to make all the SJW claims stick to Amazon in addition to reddit and burn the whole motherfucker down.

One of my favorite things about reddit is the fact that it is infested with SJWs. It is so easy to expose thousands of them to opinions that make them rage. One of the best trolling sites on the internet.

99% of us are here from Reddit.

Our best voice is to have as many people view and participate as possible.

This post alone is giving users an option to email current reddit advertisers/webhosters to help destroy reddit. The smaller the community the smaller the impact.

Voat is really in a catch-22. Staying small and having intelligent conversations is great. Becoming large and having a greater reach is great.

I doubt Reddit will die. It will become more sanitized surely, but it will live. How can it not when countless "news" sites exist spewing half-truths and they still live on?

What will die is the respect one has for it. We know now the source is not quality (Reddit admin) and instead focused on viewership numbers and therefore has an agenda...which is not an open dialogue like we enjoy.

It will be there - it will just be a joke of its former self.

Appreciation for freedom of speech correlates closely with intelligence.

There might be smart people who disagree with what Coontown had to say (though I don't know how that's possible. It is 2015, after all) but they will still understand what this banning means, and they will know it's time to leave.

Reddit can lumber on without the smart people, for a while. But stupid people are boring. And the particular brand of stupid that's taking over reddit (mewling and jawless omega males who thirst for the "power" to shut down debate) happen to be unpleasant in other ways, too.

Before long, the userbase will look around and see nothing but stupid and disgusting reflections of themselves. With no evil thinkers to rally against, and no bright users to entertain them, they'll flee in droves.

It happened to digg, it happened to somethingawful, it will happen to reddit.

It's a subreddit that violates both reddit's own policies and most advertisers' advertising policies.

I proposed informing the advertisers politely of this fact.

It's just as legitimate as the content in the OP.

In fact, it's essentially the same content, just from a different angle.

Why was my comment deleted?

[–] PorchMonkey [S] 0 points 7 points (+7|-0) ago 

Because coontown broke no rules. It was clear to me that this was the reason when Spez himself said the reason the brigading subs like SRS/SRD wasn't banned or quarantined was because they were working on technology to limit that from happening. If coontown was brigading, the same would apply to us.

Yesterday HuffingtonPost published this article: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/casey-stevens/why-im-asking-advertisers-to-dumpreddit_b_7932736.html and it was specifically referring to requesting advertisers to dump reddit.

So, it appears to have worked for them. It can work for us.

That was quite the read. Kinda funny at first, reading stories like the guy who almost got himself fired because he was such a racist or the woman who hates all white men, except for her fiance of course. But then it settles in that there actually are people this stupid who are actively trying to change the world I live in and the whole thing is pretty scary.

The fun part about this is that the SJWs have already taken over Reddit and they still keep fucking up the site. It's hilarious. They're basically stabbing themselves in the back here. If you want freedom, this is the place to be. I don't agree with racists, but I still believe they should be allowed to speak up. I hope you find a good home here Coontowners.

The thing is, Reddit IS now a reflection of their views. It has "quarantined" subs, it has "safe spaces", it has super-duper fascist mods that crack down on any dissenters. And yet, that's not enough. It has to be better, it has to be even more tolerant. It has to be even more authoritarian. In my opinion, SJWs are modern day fascists. They want to create a police state where nobody has any freedoms, all for the "greater good". I got curious writing this and checked out the classic definitions of fascism... they seem to apply :P
