Hoping? Just do it.
Don't be a fucking loser.
Voat doesn't need or want a hive mind. = People who don't want have their ideas/positions challenged.
Contribute worthy content.

No censorship comes with sacrifices but, well worth the effort.

Make the effort and Welcome to the show.

Well Put. This is what I usually end up telling people when they ask.

Freedom of speech is not conditional. You are welcome to say anything you would like, anywhere you would like. However, You are also welcome to the possible repercussions of that speech.

Depending on where you live/work you may be fired or shunned by the community for this speech.. That is the risk you take.

I think this is where all of the safe-space bullshit came from. You do not have the right to not be offended. You also do not have the right to stop someone else's speech with your fist.

That is not freedom of speech. That is Fascism.

I've read this screed a thousand times, and I don't agree with it. We should be encouraged to speak our minds freely, and we should never, under any circumstances, lose our jobs for it. The only consequences for freedom of speech should be the verbal disagreement of others -- which is their freedom of speech. It's outrageous that anyone should be fired from their job for saying they voted for Trump, but that has happened countless times.

There's just some particular niche geek subs that require a level of activity to work and thats what snags me back onto Reddit, like the Vita hacking scene. Thanks for the encouragement though.

And yet that is all we see here. I wonder why.

Hopefully the voat of the future. All good stuff, but you're not there yet. @level_101

Disclaimer: If we’re conversing, I will soon fall silent. I may want to continue, but because many users are unpopular here and have less than 100 CCP, we are temporarily banned as soon as we make 10 comments in a day. Voat does not respect free speech, but I'm grateful for recent comments stating an intention to improve things.
