politically motivated censorship

Precisely this. While I do not miss it, the deletion of /v/thefappening can have little other explanation.

Voat needs to be a place resolved against corporate or political influence, much less censorship. While the letter of the law must be observed, the very purpose of Voat is to establish a free community.

Then go make your own site with your name attached to it and post all the pics there. Go on, I'll wait.

There is an argument that (at least some of) the images from /v/thefappening are on questionable legal ground. If Voat decides that links to illegal content should be banned, then I can sympathize and understand the ban.

Legal and Financial, not political.

There have been and are lawsuits on going (the latest is Hulk Hogan, I think) by celebrities whose private images have been leaked. Celebrities who are, by and large, a bunch of stupidly rich fucks who can afford enough lawyers to crush any normal citizen like bugs.

The whole hulk thing is a giant pile of hypocrisy. The site refusing to take it down, is also a site that was crying rape over the fappenning, because it was women being literally raped on the internet with their pictures.

What happens if you just ignore them and claim that you never got their letters or whatever.

Apparently you kids have no idea how court systems work.

Someone with money has power and some one without money has no power.

All the have to do is hit these guys with a law suit and then they are shit deep in legal fees and court bull shit.

Yall mother fuckers need to wake up and look around.

Money runs shit. Not speech.
