A tough decision, but one that had to be made. We are all behind you.

agreed Atko has my full support

I supported the idea of Voat. Now the man understands that he cannot support an entirely free platform, and no longer embodies what I support.
However, this is not his fault. Poor Atko...

Why? He is ignoring the entire reason his site got a popularity boost. If it is illegal, take it down, no one will argue with it. If it is not illegal, but just offensive, leave it alone.

Fuck Atko. He makes you upvote more than you downvote because he's a "safe space" bitch.

I can understand your disappointment with this decision, but that's not how donations work. Look at the Republican US POTUS candidates that gave white supremacist donated money to support the victims of the recent South Carolina church shooting. I'm sure he isn't happy his white money is helping minority Americans, but he is in no way entitled to a return on his donation, and neither are you.

Three of those subverses were areas where it was very likely that illegal content would be posted and the fourth was one that voat was very likely to be sued over. They're reasonable bans, even if you (or I) don't like it.

I'm definitely not behind this move whatsoever.
