Reddit has become such a shit hole. Let them keep shutting down subs they don't agree with and let them keep migrating here.
Reddit will be an echo chamber for regressive snowflakes discussing their feels in their safe space and Voat will be where intelligent adults actually discuss real issues without fear of censorship.

They don't realise that people who post in t_d also post and comment in other subs, sometimes under other usernames. When those users are pushed over here they also no longer post in those other subs, or they post in both until our one gets enough users.

By banning subs they will be reducing the amount of content over the entire site.

What content?

You mean those shill ad posts allover the frontpage.

I've been banned from t_d for months because I didn't bend the knee as a libertarian. No hard feelings here, but clearly I'm not biased towards them. I am also the mod of a number of nonpolitical subs and have been an active poster on Reddit for about a decade. Because of this bullshit, I'm done there. I'm going to scrub my account today sometime. My point being: even people not linked to t_d will be leaving over this. Fuck this.

Except from getting shitposts from some existing Voat users, apparently. I also wonder how censorship-proof Voat really is. Are there some examples of how Voat protects against censorship or are we just relying on the people moderating and the admins to be perfect?

What I've found in my time lurking here is that, on average, voat users seem to be better at recognizing shitposters, shills, and slideposts, and hence mods take a more passive role than on eddit.

Public mod logs. People get outraged and then person is forced to resign from being a mod. Happened before. It's easy to cut the hydras head when they can't hide.

/u/she tried to censor /v/askvoat. The community downvoated her into oblivion, and when she whined to /u/Atko about not being able to make /v/askvoat a safespace, he told her "calm your tits" and not to try to suppress free speech.
