The 100 point downvoat thing is what discouages me from participating on voat, no one likes to be told they are not leet enough to participate snd this includes downvoating obvious spam. You want my content and participation, don't insult me by forcing me into the kiddy pool.

Ya me too. If upvoats are for Agreements downvoats MUST be for Disagreements or else the system is really fucked up. Which it is. I personally think this "no downvoating disagreements" thing was part of the SJW strategy that killed reddit.

Upvoating is not for agreement, it's for interesting content or a well-argued comment.

Reddiquette was dead long before the SJW movement, and I don't think they had anything to do with it. It isn't surprising it's a new concept to a lot of you.

"Obvious spam" should be REPORTED not downvoated.

I'll be honest, I've never gotten the report button to work correctly. It just sits there on "reporting..." or whatever it says instead of completing correctly.

Wait, you're being forced? Please explain.

Down voats aren't "participation" - commenting and contributing are. Down voats exist only to identify posts that don't contribute to the discussion at hand. Maybe the poster didn't read the article, maybe they didn't understand the comment they are replying to and are being negative. Regardless, if being able to tag those posts is more important to you than being able to discuss things with others, it's probably a good thing that you'll never be able to do it.
