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

kannibal was leftist for a while, maybe he still is, no one downvoated him into oblivion. He also wasn't a massive fucking faggot.

isn't that exactly why they get downvoted ? those who downvote them are also bothered by the fact that people think differently than them (cringy is relative to what stance you've got)

I think karma shouldn't affect how you use the site at all, or it'll quickly turn into a reddit-like echo chamber with a different flavor

People don't care about having their convictions challenged. The majority of users here got banned for trying to challenge the convictions of others. People here are very confident in their arguments; they want to be challenged so they can potentially wake people up to their cause, or at least to the Truth.

What people don't like is feral or childish behaviour. Ive seen many people with aginst-the-grain ideas get thoroughly upvoted, just because they were civil when presenting their case. Great discussions usually follow.

People who come over here whose only "arguments" against our points consist of "you're an evil nazi racist" are going to get downvoted. And no, the downvotes must remain as they are because they are the only means Voat has of controlling spam in a decentralized way.
