I can't agree with you more. I love discussing politics, but being fairly conservative found myself constantly insulted for having views differing from those of the /r/politics drones. I think if this "subverse" can be truly political discussion, especially in a fairly civil manner, I will be sold enough to believe that it is likely the rest of voat is less "agree or be trolled" than reddit.

Wonderful point of view. I very much disliked the: "Agree...or else!" Mindset of reddit. I'm glad to see some dissenting and diverse conversation in /v/politics. If, however, it turns into more of the same, I'll try to find a different subverse. Until then...happy browsing!

Happy browsing to you as well. I love having political debates, as long as they are calm, civil and rational. Unfortunately reddit seemed to have a nasty habit of not being any of those things and seemed to love terms such as "conservitard" and "libtard."

I'm glad for discussion, but if you want to keep it civil, it would be best to not call people drones, on either side of the isle. Even if it's subtle or unintended that sort of talk from anyone is likely to lead to a little resentment and possible retaliatory comments which most likely wouldn't be in good taste.

:D

You're right, that comment was in bad taste and I am not helping the situation by doing so.
