I'm done with Voat because I can't stand having to make a new account everytime I want to comment. One single downvote is enough to drive a new account into account restrictions and once an account has been driven into account restrictions the account can never post or comment again.
So if people don't like what you're saying they can literally shut down your account with one single downvote. This isn't free speech.
How is it free speech when speaking freely gets my account shut down?
I'm not going to keep making new accounts everytime I want to say something. This is bullshit. If the userbase is going to sit around and tolerate this kind of censorship than you're not people I want to hear my words anyways.
This site has declined too much for me and now I'm done. The traffic has dipped so low that it's not even worth forcing my presence either. There aren't enough people here to make it worth the effort anymore.
So go ahead. Enjoy the brigades and peer censorship. I'm fucking done. It's not worth the effort for me anymore, especially not to reach a only few hundred people.
If this community doesn't see a problem with downvotes locking out accounts than I'm fucking gone.
Seriously, I'm officially retiring and this is my last submission. I don't enjoy having a presence on here anymore. The site is all largely shills and brigaders.
Downvotes shutdown accounts. That's called peer censorship and I'm gone.
Fuck you all.
