No one knows why voats are made up or down. Could be trolling, spamming, brigading. Positive/negative comments may not add up to the voats on a post, but they should correlate to what a post is liked or disliked for which reasons. If you want to voat on a post, you should be required to make a comment. Otherwise your voat is meaningless since no one knows why you voated.
Alternatively post logs of who upvoated or downvoated should be public.
We believe in free speach, but not mob violence. People should stand behind their views, including voats.
