Apparently it was the board who was pushing for censorship, and she was the one defending free speech

Up to about 6 hours and then you should see a doctor. Can't wait to find out what the deal is with invite only.

there is probably some issue with the registration system that allows botnets to spam the servers for information in it.

bot nets creating tons of accounts to bog down servers, and create tons of extra storage requirements, thus increasing server costs to voat. They should be able to purge these accounts based on activity on each, presuming that the accounts are each idle.

I wonder if it has anything to do with that "Voat's New Censorship" shitposter who had like a hundred or so alts. Stop him from making new alts, ban the known ones, wait for him to move on somewhere else.

Yo dawg, I heard you liked memes that have been recycled so much that practically make you shiver in fear at this point because they've been drilled into your brain so hard.

No I'm good thanks.

Really hoping @Atko and @PuttItOut would somehow dedicate a few hours in their understandably busy schedule to organize an AMA to share their vision and future plans for Voat with the community and also to get direct feedback from the community about their experiences here at Voat.

Rumor has it that there is a really good AMA organizer that may be looking for work, too. I bet she could help out! /s

I'm sure they will do something like that, don't underestimate how much shit they've likely been doing for the past several weeks, if not months.

I'm not underestimating anything. I'm just hoping. Or to use the exact wording, I'm "really hoping." :)

Sure, more exposure for this is always appreciated. Although I think your choice of words in the description is out of place because you make it sound like an accusation rather than a request (which is certainly not what I am aiming for in my comment).

I do wonder if the invite-only thing is only temporary allowing the system to scale up in a more controlled manner. Sort of like they do with beta testing software applications which will be used in large healthcare organizations. Well, how they do it everywhere except where I work. :(

Hopefully. Another speculation is the registration page is an attack vector for those trying to kill voat

Level 7 attacks will leverage a portion of the page that is expensive for the server to process. It wouldn't shock me of some botnet was creating thousands of accounts a minute and chewing up resources.

Remember CloudFlare is helping but not perfect.

Huh sooo thanks for announcing there might be an announcement? Lol

Honestly though since they just added the "load more replies" without opening another page I'll be happy if the announcement just says they will stay up and operating.

It also tells you how many replies are left at the bottom of the page now, and when it has loaded them all it disappears. Good stuff.

You know though it does occur to me that you just publicly released a PM. I doubt it's anything Atko wouldn't say publicly, but it's a bit rude.

It seems like Atko is trying to get as many engaged users as possible. It's an interesting strategy. Lets see if it pays off.

Atko in my opinion is off to a great start to life. He's open to idea's, and seems like a genuine hardworking guy.
