Every time a group downvotes you they're censoring your opinion. This place is not "censorship free". More like "direct censorship is discouraged".

Down voting is not censorship.

Not really, I can see your point with the downvotes hiding content, but it doesn't remove it or stop others from viewing it so I don't count it as censorship. If your posts were being removed then definitely.

If someone deletes your content on voat it doesn't stop you from posting it somewhere else, or getting up on a soap box and letting everyone passing by know your opinion, or writing large signs and sticking them to the side of your house.

Making your content virtually invisible or harder to find is still a form of censoring it.
