Yes! I'm so glad he got the hammer.

But don't you see the pattern. "I think it's good he got the hammer based on what kind of person he is." is the very premise of reddit censorship.

Isn't this exactly the same way censorship started on reddit?

First it was the loli, then hating fat people, then it was "violent extremism" then it was anything to do with right-wing views, now it's even the slightest stepping out of line gets a ban.

Reddit, Digg, Twitter every single site that gives a inch to censorship eventually becomes fully controlled.

Exactly what I was thinking.

All my this. I don't care if a spammer is banned for spamming. I deeply care if the real reason is that the spammed material itself was objectionable.

Have to disagree on this one. I fear a familiar pattern. First Voat "finds an angel" then the bans start rolling in. Is this the price of admission? Reddit did the same shit with "child porn is free speech" to trigger a mass support of bans, and now look at it. R Pongyang was just the preview.

"Rolling"?

Putt banned one person, came clean about it, explained what's been done and why, and from outward appearances was genuinely conflicted about it. We should be so lucky if all our leaders behaved this way.

Bans didn't start rolling in. Trolls started rolling in. You can't allow people to take over your website/forum. Freedom of speech is not without rules. If it was this site would be nothing but bots spamming BUY A THIS PENIS ENLARGER, SUPER HOT ANAL CHICKS WITH DICKS and dead in two days.

Got the down votes from the reddit pedo marxist crowd. For anyone who thinks it's not true go start your own free speech forum with no rules and see what happens when it gets popular enough to attract the spammers and trolls. I think you morons know it will destroy a site by having no rules and you're trying to destroy voat so that's why you agree with no rules.

I doubt you've ever even helped voat by reporting spammers once. /v/reportspammers trust me there's a lot of them out there.

It's sounds vile and not relevant to gaming. It sounds like a deplatforming effort. Sometimes they attempt to agitate crazies, sometimes they try to post certain content. If it were just unpopular speech that's one thing, this sounds like something else.

Just someone trying to push the limit. I mean, cartoon girls? I am not even going to click the link. No thx!

I can't think of one person who earned it more. Fuck him. :)

[–] Empress 11 points 2 points (+13|-11) ago 

Absolutely right. He was vile and frequently crossed into areas that aren't legally protected speech. This ban was totally warranted.
