What about direct messages?


[–] SpottyMatt 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

Direct messages are 1:1 communication and literally an order of magnitude more difficult to abuse.

You might have bad actors doing nefarious things with each other over direct messages but it's much more difficult for locii of bad actors to grow when there is no mechanism to broadcast a message only to the in-group.

I can't invite you into my direct message conversation with another Voat user, I have to have a separate conversation with you and perhaps relay messages by hand.

All right.

Anyone can make a free discord and link to these things. IRC, Poal, Phucks, etc. Basically the same thing - why not have the convenient feature for others here, so those of us shoahed to this website from leftist strongholds have an easier time of congregating?

I think there is a use for private directly messages. The two can be implemented or used separately from eachother.

Private direct messages already exist.
