Inb4 the DV storm. Just because we champion freedom of speech doesn't mean we should also try to be as offensive as possible all the time. Freedom of speech means say what you want, it doesn't mean everyone has to be cool with it. I don't have a problem with using kike or nigger if you want, but being offensive for the sake of being offensive isn't they way to grow voat.

I've given it more thought and you need to have both good and bad options. There needs to be a tiered pricing structure that starts at $1 and goes to something absurd like $1000 for pointlessly extravagant goat memes just to encourage wealthy people to donate more. Members with a paid subscription get their monthly contribution in credit for putting their money where their mouth is. Top ups can be purchased with bulk discounts applicable to encourage larger donations. The forced click through has to be a funny voat mascot cartoon (upset jew putting a shekel in a voat goat money box with server funds written on the side perhaps?) that lets the user know their comment has helped keep voat afloat and once clicked through the person who forced it on them should have the option of being notified that their message has been seen if they want it. As fucked as it is we should also encourage brigading by having special click throughs that only apply once a certain number of credits of the same kind have been reached for the post. It'd suck getting hit with ten pages of being called a faggot only to then have a goat wave a giant cock around telling you that you like what you see don't ya faggot? but deep down you'd kind of be happy that you triggered enough people to raise $10 for voat which would get you over it pretty quickly. Oh and give every newb a few freebies once they've got enough user points because once they've given a couple out they'll want to keep doing it. Just make it a part of a sample for the paid product and wish them well with their forever free account that they can always buy credits for later if they want to.

That was absolutely hilarious.

Ya we need to have some respect for "freedom of speech"'s counterpart, "freedom of listening" (or not)
