I just remembered another argument: Cake days encourage shitposting. So let's just stop this shit now and never mention it again.

I can't even remember all the times where people's cakeday post is just them talking about how they don't know what to post for their cakeday. I tried to downvote everyone of those I saw on Reddit, but the post always went up like a fucking Christmas tree.

Yeah, it's like reddit gold. A shiny icon next to your name == karma

Not to mention you get shadowbanned for downvoting too much on reddit, what a shithole.

Hey guys. It's Wednesday and I don't know what to post today. So.. yeah, that's about it.

You need balance. There can be no good posts without bad posts to contrast and define them. If every post is special and good then no post is special nor good since they all would be at the same level. One person's garbage is another person's gold but I do agree that reddit cake days encourage shit posting for fake internet points. At least on voat those points matter... you cant spam upvoats without getting ccp in return.

I'd argue that it's entirely possibly to have a thread without bad posts. Also, having shitposts in a thread doesn't make the non-shitposts automatically "good." The quality of a post stands on it's own. Adding shitposts just lowers the overall quality of the thread.

How do these points matter? I'm ten minutes old.

That's simply not true. If every post is good, all posts don't magically become less good.
That's like saying that the generation of men who fought in WW2 weren't heroes because all of them did it. Absurd.

Let's let reddit be the place of bad posts and expect voat to be the place of good.

Personally been on reddit for 8 years, never did that cakeday bullshit.

Why anyone would care about a website sign up date anniversary is beyond me.

I was on reddit for years but never had the same account for more than 6-7 months. Cake day? What's that?

Never understood cake day and didn't bother to post my last 3. No point whatsoever in the proverbial circle jerk of things. Quality posts for a Quality Voat!
