Before I begin I will say that I love freedom of thought and freedom of speech. /v/funny used to be a place that could have also been /v/irony. The top posts were only links that dealt with current events and you would nod your head and think "Yep" after reading the captions. There are still some that do that to me but it feels like a corner has been turned lately and garbage is reaching near the top of /v/all. /r/funny and /r/pics ruined the original free speech bastion across the road and I don't want that to happen to voat. I want the front page to be things that open my mind and make me see a different side.
Anyone who comes in saying, "just subscribe to the subvoats you are interested in and go to that front" is a shill.
