Good morning fellow pilgrims, please hear me out.
Voat is vastly different from Reddit in a number of ways.
There is absolute and abundant free speech, get over hearing "nigger" or "faggot" everywhere.
That being said, only legitimate content is wanted, not shitposting. You're free to shitpost and so is everyone else, but the natives here don't deserve it. Shitposting is primarily used for trolling, why troll voaters? Go shitpost in Reddit.
There are safe guards in place to prevent mods from abusing power and to prevent people from mass upvoating or downvoating. This may be annoying but it's an amazing thing that protects free speech by eliminating censorship.
Voat is much smaller than Reddit and has a different community. It doesn't make money off its users the way Reddit does. If you like this product, pay for it like a regular human being and donate. I would like better services here, that costs money.
YOU ARE NO LONGER THE MINORITY, STOP WHINING LIKE BITCHES. THIS IS NOT FUCKING REDDIT.
Not everyone will integrate here properly... but let's try not to ruin it for those who were smarter than we were and left Reddit years ago.
