Yep, Discord was created for exactly this kind of gay shit. And it's become an internet faggotry and gay op breeding ground.

The platform dictates the behavior. See also Twitter. Leave Voat as it is, or it will become Voat + Secret Gay Clubhouse Voat.

It will split the userbase into regular users who read and post for fun and a slew of "drama/srs-like" subs that coordinate brigading, harassment and other gay shit.

And then we move to the next site without those features just like last time.

Not gonna lie: if this happened, I would have a long, hard conversation with myself about permanently leaving. Not saying that as a threat or anything: I know no one would give a fuck either way. But it is one of the early red-flags of any online community's downfall: once the shit-disturbers gain a quiet foothold, to organize and grow.

The lack of private subs unironically may just very well be the reason spammers and shills have such a hard time subverting us, as a whole. I ignored it when it happened to reddit, at the time. This time, I still have red-pills working their way through my digestive tract. Enough to see the problem with it.
