There is always two ways to say the same thing: respectably or with vulgarity. One way is meant for discussion and education, the other is an act of aggression. People respond to these in kind. If our purpose is to educate the unknowing (aka red pill the masses), then vulgarity turns them off, and the message is never heard. Vulgarity destroys Voat's purpose because it turns away the very people that need the enlightment while doing nothing for those already enlightened.
Voat has a lot of vulgarity and most of it is planted and intended to turn people away. And it works and it's why they do it. [Source]
I'll be the first to admit that when I first joined Voat I wrote "nigger" all the time...well the novelty wears off after the first 30 days and what's left? An embarassing array of posts and comments that make you look like a fool. Awhile back before I deleted my Facebook, I went back through my posts and cringed....legitimately cringed at all the stupid shit I posted.
A Rule that Old-time Goats should have:
If I would be embarrassed of seeing my comment on a Billboard, then I shouldn't write it on Voat.
Edit: ib4 'Muh Free Speech" this isn't about Free Speech. It's about waking up normies and helping them see our side of things. Now I understand that there is a tipping point, too many normies ruin everything. The difference between Reddit and Voat is that we have Putt's and Atko by default who are dedicated to free speech, so we know that we can't be stripped of our platform like what is happening on Reddit, Twitter and Facebook.
