I am here firstly advocating for free speech, but also view voat as a dangerous safespace that creates hateful/violent racists out of weak-minded people. Donating towards that is a non-starter right now: if voat ever decided to adopt free-speech as a serious priority in future that could change.

Where would we be now if voat had adopted policies consistent with free speech a long time ago, and avoided becoming such a toxic circlejerk? Perhaps the site would have a larger userbase with healthy ideological debates, and also be more financially viable: similar to my thoughts above, there aren't many advertisers who would risk tarnishing their brand by putting it on voat's front page.

Edit: I doubt I have enough money to buy principles of free speech that you should already be upholding.

Are you trying to be the internet's thought police? Have fun with that one until you end up in the asylum.

Voat is in general a polite, nice, safe space to discuss the evil shit in the world. If you don't have paper thin skin you will have some great debates.

Voat has policies consistent with free speech, can you outline the policies you think aren't?

Can you name another website where users can see all moderated content if they desire?

Your language usage doesn't exactly lend you any favor in the community. Toxic, circlejerk, etc. All have been used to try and attack certain groups within Voat as we left the decaying corpse of Reddit, so in turn we know that people that use these terms unironically are generally terrible human beings, trying to gain power and restrict speech. Reddit is Digg 2.0 now and everyone knows it.

Edit: I doubt I have enough money to buy principles of free speech that you should already be upholding.

The fuck are you talking about? You've been here for a few months and trying to tell the rest of us what to do? Does that not strike you as fucking stupid way to integrate into a community?

Voat is the anti-thesis of a safe space, discussion on all taboo topics is encouraged.

You know why we don't really need advertisers? Because most of us are employed and can support the site without needing to take a massive load of Unilever or Coca-Cola's cock up the arse to support free speech, which they wouldn't support anyway as evidenced by Reddit and FatPeopleHate being first to go.

Guess who make the best $$$ all round for advertisers?

Why do you think Reddit banned FPH before coontown?

I'm just pointing out the obvious consequences of your severe racist circlejerk.

Voat is in general a polite, nice, safe space to discuss the evil shit in the world.

Bullshit. While regularly calling for various races to be considered subhuman and exterminated - some of the most evil shit in the world is here on voat typing away.

Voat has policies consistent with free speech, can you outline the policies you think aren't?

Slowly, carefully read the disclaimer. What hole have you been living in?

Can you name another website where users can see all moderated content if they desire?

I can - you don't get my invite.

Toxic, circlejerk, safespace, crawling with stupid dangerous racists. Sorry if my mean words hurt your feelings, but I'd rather be truthful. I'm not here to integrate (seriously, how pathetic are you) - I'm running around pointing out your glaring hypocrisy. Doesn't it strike you as fucking stupid that you think the age of my account has any relevance to what I'm saying?

Voat is the anti-thesis of a safe space, discussion on all taboo topics is encouraged.

Moron. The forbidden thoughts around here are supporting hillary, welcoming refugees, affirming the humanity of dark skinned people, thinking that Trump is a lying sack of shit, being a SJW (whatever that's supposed to be).... Focus on those topics and you'll be perpetually censored via CCP restrictions.

Oh, you don't need advertisers... those slaving away trying to save money migrating the code due to the site's severe financial troubles will be so pleased. Advertisers are not binary, they lie on a some sort of spectrum: you wouldn't get the support of Coke or Unilever but you'd get more support from more organisations.

Disclaimer: If we’re conversing, I will soon fall silent. I may want to continue, but because my views are unpopular here I have less than 100 CCP, and am temporarily banned as soon as I make 10 comments in a day. Voat does not respect free speech. Don’t be a hypocrite and pretend that it does.
