Reading this comment chain, I felt obligated to say this. As someone who doesn't always agree with the extremity of everything that is posted here, but at the same time understands it as a reaction to the current state of the world, I just want to say thank for all the risk and personal sacrifice you've taken upon yourself to keep Voat operational. There are many uncomfortable debates and conversations that need to be had that are becoming more and more impossible to have, not just in real life, but also across the web, and the fact that Voat still exists, even if it is imperfect, gives me solace that there are still places where those conversations can take place.

Those in power will always try to stop speech they don't like because it threatens their control; that there are uncensored places where people are still allowed to challenge the dominant narrative is absolutely essential to maintaining balance and correcting course.
