Reddit is dead. Dying. It will be completely dead one year from now. They still have a large (no pun intended... heh heh) userbase of FAT, greedy, selfish, first-world "oppressed", narcissistic SJW societal embarrassments.

Honestly I hope voat stays a small, closed community. Keep the reddit riff-raff out.

Yeah, shit will go down fast once we start accumulating too many white knights.

It won't always be this way for long sadly. It almost feels like Reddit is deliberately flushing out the shit, knowing that Voat recently opened up signups and they want us to fail. We will not become Reddit.

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.

reddit is dead.

Reddit is doubling down on entertainment instead of information.

you are right. people will say "they banned fatpeoplehate and coontown, so they should also ban this, and this because i am offended by it" eventually all that will be left will be upliftingnews and basketweaving. fuck reddit!
