First the mod stated the site couldn't handle the bandwidth of a front page post, then that changed too we simply don't allow it. How many time have we seen this from mods/admins at Reddit. I actually would have more respect for them if they just stated we don't support sl.img because of its association to Voat or FPH or whatever, instead of just making up rules. The whole thing is just so childish.

It certainly isn't the way to gain respectability in the tech world.

Because any site not in the top 250 or so can? Seriously, at peak times 1 link out of 3 on the frontpage that isn't imgur or a major news site is down.

Stop thinking it's all about money as well. They can't have dissident. People like us are those who break from the mainstream, we are the revolutionaries. The gub'ment doesn't want us to have a voice for any reason.

The site is down half the time just from the views on this site. Don't image it would be any better on Reddit. Fuck'em.

Slimg is just a superior site. I wish we could make Slimg blow up and a viable company like Reddit did for imgur. That would be bitter sweet.

Yep, the closing of /r/reddit.com was the biggest single nail in the coffin of reddit IMO.

None of the defaults got super strict until it went away because the mods couldn't effectively control messaging as long as a catchall existed that allowed anything within the global rules.

I hate imgur too, but that'd make us worse than them.

I like to think voat is a place of less censorship (as there are a lot of things that need to be censored, e.g. hecho's subs) than reddit, and even if some people have different views that I don't agree with, or use hosting websites that I don't like, they should be allowed anyway; they, their views and hosting websites.

Exactly. What sites people use and what sites people click on is up to them. The website shouldn't demand certain ones simply due to a bias - recommendations and avoiding spam sites not being included.

I don't like the idea of a ban, but downvoating imgur posts or commenting with a "please use slimgr instead" line is perfectly in line with Voat. They can use imgur, we can tell them what we think of them using imgur.
