If irony held physical weight, you could bundle this up and bludgeon someone to death with it.

Indeed, they always raise and modify it after an exodus because the user base is dying out.

Voat always gives me that "old internet" feel. Back in the 2000s when everyone was ecstatic with the idea of anonymity and the infiniteness in creativity through this digital landscape. Also the mysteriousness of never knowing what someone might say or what you'll find next. I think any of your friends who browsed the internet frequently during that time can appreciate it, if they don't like the, shall we say, "harder" communities, more focused on questionable topics, there's always the generic courteous ones like /v/funny etc etc.

At least on voat you can post without getting banned for not being subscribed to a sub. How stupid is that?

The numbers multiplied by about 10x for some subs practically over night about a month ago, its been claimed that its part of an algorithm to protect against bots and spamming. If you have been watching reddit closely for many years you will have noticed several times where they changed how a posts scoring was affected, the first time i noticed was right after the fattening.. Old reddit used to give you the full upvote / downvote totals, it wasn't long after they started hiding that that the fuckery started happening.

No chance. Those upvote numbers have been inflated since "the last bastion of free speech" clause was redacted from their mission statement

Actually I don't think it is. Everyone attributes it to him but it didn't appear in print until a couple decades ago. Still good though, the truth need not be said by a famous hero to be validated, the truth stands alone.

Is this real?

If so redditors are retarded.

That said I can see the same happening here one day. Anything that resorts to up/down voting tends towards popularity contest = hot bed for group think and herding ~ majority idiocy rules.

Since the retards are usually the most vocal and oppressive they have the loudest voice and subdue everyone else (thankfully not when it comes to voting)

It has become much worse since the inauguration. They just banned /r/altright today and many believe that the ultimate goal is to wedge /r/the_donald into such a corner that it becomes nothing more than an echo chamber for his supporters. It has already been censored from reaching the frontpage unless a post "organically" gets upvoted there - even then, the mods usually remove it for being "offensive" or CTR comes in and downvotes it to hell.

Very sad state of affairs. I've never seen anything like it in my life.

Yeah I'm not a fan of the up and downvoting.

I'm a huge fan of 4chan-style and anonymity. Every post based on merit. It only got fucked over after admins started dicking with shit. When it's not anonymous you need to watch what you say because users come back and destroy your argument with past things youve said. It's a sin to change your mind in this case which is really fucked up.

[–] MissHoneyPot 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

Yep, I don't need others to infer the merit in a view or opinion on my behalf.

At best it's just another tool for SJWs to exploit to subdue what they don't approve of. At worst its used for censorship and seems juxtaposed to a 'free speech' board.

The least we should expect is that to up or down vote anything you need to add a reasonable post saying why (say 150 characters)

They would at least mean up or down votes are supported by rational reasoning, and if not it'll stand out clearly and can be addressed!

Do it voat. Otherwise this is just Reddit 2. And I didn't even use Reddit. But just seeing what it's like and how voting are manipulated makes it clear!
