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.

Reddit censorship started with jailbait. Even then, people called out the slippery slope.

Not what the global ban list says.... The slippery slope isn't just Aged, it's the mere accusation of vote manipulation. If Putt were to cuck, (hopefully that's not what the "angel" was all about) all he'd have to do is label someone a manipulator and POOF they're gone without any verification that was actually the case. If he came clean on Aged, why not Hecho? He was more a notorious spammer of cp shit than aged ever was.

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.

Trolls have been here since the beginning. The community was always good at curtailing it via downvotes, until farming became an issue. So the farmers/brigaders were banned. This is strikingly similar to reddit's "child porn is free speech" debate which initiated the first round of bans. Then it spreads to other controversial subjects like cancer. That's ultimately why Voat was created, back in the fappening days.

So far we've come...

My gods, I should make a joke account and do this. It would be funnier than "Noseberg Shekelman"
