Oh, yay. More posts about Reddit. I'd downvote, but my opinions aren't popular enough to warrant one.

This was more a commentary on the recent /v/jailbait banning here. Thought it was relevant and funny. Sorry it rubbed you the wrong way. Peace.

I'm not going to hold it against atko to fear jail time for inadvertently hosting a link to an illegal image. It's not his fault the laws are written the stupid way they are.

Lord forbid we discuss current events.

Lord forbid you have to build a reputation on a site before your opinions matter.

You sure do have some strange expectations of this community, I think its great.

I've always toyed around w/ the idea of building my own reddit clone, and it has always been based around the idea of making Karma actually matter. Voat makes this a reality and restricts your abilities as a user based on your "voat count"/Karma. I'm not convinced this is a bad thing, and only acts as a hindrance to the laziest of lurkers (or trolliest of trolls), who's lack of true investment in the community entirely warrants their gimped voating abilities.

I'd say the way the voat limiting is done works well. It seems to be very fair, especially after the recent increase in upvoats at 20ccp.

Don't like it? Don't participate.

That should be the unofficial motto here, I see so many people complaining about the content, yet none of them stop participating.

If you want to have your opinion lauded with empty praise, go to facebook. If you want to have your opinion shit on, goto reddit. If you want to share your opinion and have it discussed, create the space here by participating in the discussion.
The value the discussion has is the value you put in, no one else is responsible for giving you value.

There is nothing forcing you to participate in sharing content you don't like.

Many of us left reddit because we were sick and tired of it.

Here have an upvote.

I love voat already, It doesn't feel creepy or sadistic, and it isn't stained with the blood of it's creator.

It will become like that if it grows, there is always a percentage of human beings that are like that. But if it doesnt take the dangerous turn Reddit took (i.e. Political and corporate censorship) then things will be OK since the good people will stay here.

Yep. Once it's big it will go the same way as Reddit. I'm looking forward to being around as every single inside joke is made from the beginning though.About the first inside joke I was actually there for at Reddit was Jenny.

It's a lot like the closing lines of The Rainmaker where he talks about how right now it's about what's right but down the line he's just going to become just another lawyer chasing money.

And that's what it boils down to with everything really you love it until it becomes the thing you love least. You either live long enough to become the next digg or reddit or die trying to be voat.

I used to tell my coworkers when they left at the end of their shifts to keep it classy but in this case let's just keep it honest and clear about anything... best case scenario we go down trying and at worst we become the next big thing and it gets ruined behind a wall of cat pics, redundencies, and shills.

What do you mean by "rated" ?

[–] jackofdiamonds 1 points -1 points (+0|-1) ago  (edited ago)

Exactly. I have never heard of any subs getting rated in some internal five star system, certainly not in the last couple of years since I have had an account. The only thing I can think this could mean is that it had the most subscribers out of any sub, which is absolutely batshit preposterous.

I remember when it was voted worst subreddit.

Yup, and the pedophiles whined about it being banned (only after bad press of course) and the same thing happened here a couple days ago.

Remember when looking of pictures at underage girls/boys without any sexualisation aspect was just fine? I remember!

Just do what this OP did -- post a crappy meme about something controversial on reddit and say reddit sucks. Then your opinion matters enough to give you downvotes!

I think voat might be worse than reddit. It's basically just /r/circlejerk and /r/conspiracy merged together on a site.
