If I don't pay my internet bill and get cut-off then I can't post on Voat or any other site. Is that censorship? If I forget my password and can't login to Voat to post, is that censorship? I can't go on TV and say whatever is on my mind because I don't have a broadcaster license and the TV networks won't have me on their shows as a guest. Is that censorship? I can't go over to your house and sit in your living room ranting about censorship because you won't let me inside your house. Is that censorship? Rules that dictate the mechanics surrounding a free speech platform (such as temporary voting/commenting limits) are not censorship. We wouldn't need these rules/mechanics if trolls like you were not abusing the platform in the first place. You (and others like you) caused this by being manipulative and deceitful. If all you bring to the conversation is inflammatory words that others find objectionable then you will be downvoated. You know the rules of the site and purposefully say things that will get you downvoats instead of simply working to get your 100 CCP that will enable you to downvoat. You do this, just like every other concern troll on Voat, to play the victim and whine about how you are being censored and oppressed. If that's all you have then you're free speech is not worth listening to anyway since it's garbage speech. You are allowed to say anything but we don't have an obligation to give you an audience or agree with you.

Do you know what censorship is? A better analogy is: I think Trump is a pile of shit, and don't pay my internet bill, and get cut off. You enjoy telling everyone that you want to suck Trump's dick, and don't pay your internet bill, but you don't get cut off. You are treated differently to me because of your ideology... My words are no more inflammatory or offensive than anyone else around there.. I just disagree with most of you. If you're going to make a safe-space by gagging those who disagree with you - be honest about. Don't embarrass yourselves by pretending you care about free speech when the hypocrisy is plain to see.

And this dishonest bullshit right here is why you're downvoated. You're not being censored but you are being told to fuck off because only shit spews from your mouth hole. If you were being censored then we wouldn't have to see your shit posts and cries for safe space protection. You seem to miss that important distinction. And yes your hypocrisy is plain to see.

Telling you to shut the fuck up is free speech. Down voting is free speech. You are allowed to say anything you like, and other users are free to respond as they choose. That is exactly free speech. Don't be such a pussy.

You missed the point buddy. Me being denied downvotes while you can use them is not free speech. I'm allowed to say anything I like only 10 times a day - after that I can't say anything, I'm banned. You on the other hand can say anything you like as many times as you like. That is censorship. Have a think about it.

I have thought about it. You're just too stupid or lazy to participate is a positive manner. Freedom of speech includes the freedom off association. We are entitled to create groups with rules, then associate and converse with like minded individuals. You can try to make valued submissions, and comments and behave like a productive member of this society, or you an continue to be a weak little faggot and complain that it isn't fair that you are disliked.
