Great point. Unless you want to spin off different versions of Voat for different countries, Voat has to adhere to the strictest standard or risk being banned.

Actaully that's the oposite of a good idea. I guess we should comply with NK, China, Australia, UK, and India that have porn bans or something just short of it. We should also censor everything to comply with Japan.

The beauty of the internet is you comply with one areas rules and tell everyone else to suck it. To do otherwise would be madness. It's not how the internet works. Single country compliance is how the internet works so why would Voat of all places censor more than what the rest of the internet does? That would be antithetical to what voat is. Apply the minimum of the law or anything else you are complicit with censorship.

Find a locality where Voat exists and follow only those rules. International compliance is bullshit.

By the way /v/niggers wouldn't be internationally compliant.
