Oh, you're limited to a certain number of posts per day until you've participated in the community a bit to prevent spammers from overrunning us? Must be hard. Harder than being banned from facebook for 30 days for pointing out that 1/3 of Muslim countries execute atheists, 1/4 of Muslim countries execute gays, and 21 of the 25 least gender equal countries are Muslim majority while none of the 50 most gender equal countries are Muslim majority. I can't even imagine how it must feel.

New users aren't even limited until they participate. They are only limited to ten posts if they are strictly downvoted or downvoted more than upvoted, which only happens to spammers and people who post nothing but political content contrary to Voat's general hivemind. The system wasn't designed to limit unpopular opinions and Putt even tried to propose changes to the restrictions to better reflect the sole intention of curtailing spam, but no viable solution could be developed, when the entire community put their heads together, that didn't centralize the power that is currently decentralized.

So the whiners can cry us a river.

honestly if a leftist presented themselves well I doubt they would get downvoated just for going against the grain, but the only ones that seem to turn up here are cringy spergs who are bothered by the fact that people think differently than them

As a skinchanger myself (username-wise) I can assure everyone that getting 100 upvoats in one day is totally feasible. In fact I believe I did that with my current account. The initial restrictions are easily met for people that are here trying to be part of the community.

Remember when one of these trolls forgot to change alts before posting? Some of these users post things that are intentionally going to attract downvoats so that they can farm upvoats on other accounts. Their other accounts would reply to the mass downvoated comment with a comment that the community appreciates, and receive upvoats for it.

The 10 post per day limits the ability to upvoat farm like this, which is spamming the website & looks just like some of these infamous accounts that always attract downvoats and complain about the 10 posts per day limit posting restriction. Unfortunately, we have nothing to detect the pattern of accounts that are run by the same person/group to receive upvoats. And I do not want there to be anything that will make real privacy concerns worse.

For example, I do not think that we want to add an IP address hash to each post. But there is another idea that does not affect privacy: If someone's CPP mostly came from comments that were replies to a downvoated comment, then that would be a red flag on their account. I suspect that if the community simply stopped rewarding replies to trolls with upvoats, then this problem will be less of an issue (although they might spam more to make up for the difference if they need to meet their quota of new accounts that can downvoat).

Well to be fair, if you lack the testicular fortitude to listen to something you disagree with, or to tolerate being called a word, and you get sucked into replying to the trolls/faggots who call you a faggot, you will burn through all of your 20 replies in a few minutes and then won't be able to reply to a discussion you may actually be able to contribute to. But that only happens to faggots though. It happened to me once. Again only faggots though.

remember, folks: @crensch participates in SJW activities against free speakers on voat. manufacturing drama, infiltrating communities, harassing good mods and users off the site, downvoat brigades on free speakers and upvoat brigades for shills. @puttitout lies to the community, has banned hundreds of users without question, let voat deteriorate to a point that it no longer has chat, search, subverse transfer, in-site ads, donations, transparency... but some off-handed quip is what you cum over? get a hold of yourselves. your comments will be deleted here. with soft censorship. you wouldn't even know it if they did it to you. they do it all the time here, now. a year ago? never. they had to fight dozens of outspoken users. now? ha! they own and operate this corporation, the site it operates, they are the mods and the majority of (((content))) creators.

sincerely, sanegoat.

p.s. rotteuxx is a criminal SJW shill, for those of you that don't know. downvoat and move one.

i'm not on sanegoatiswear because it's been severely soft-censored, as now has this account.

so i'll be moving to another. one that isn't censored.

you're not going to like this @puttitout. new voat is coming. we're going to replace your shitty site - with one that has no censorship, doesn't ban users for doing things like upvoting, doesn't support criminal shills like fuzzywords the autist tranny kevdude the queer loving faggot adhdferret the crossdressing inbred retard derkatalog the inbred pooinloo - - ALL sjws here to infiltrate manipulate and destroy.

voat is dying because SJW SHILLS killed it. now comes the final death blow. when your site is replaced by a better one with better management.

When you put the statistics like that, Muslims don't sound so bad. Still, they gotta go back to where they came from, they don't belong here.


[–] freshmeat 4 points -2 points (+2|-4) ago  (edited ago)

i completely agree but preventing users from talking works both ways, it's not just lefties that get censored by downvoates


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

You don't get censored by downvotes dumbass.

Downvotes instead of being censored is nice when you don't conform to the majority of voat. :D
