Downvoating = censoring

Upvoating == freeze peach

Downvoating == freeze peach

By trying to police how the voating buttons are used, some people on this site (and others unnamed) create a safe space where dissent and disagreement cannot be expressed by arrows. Sure a comment explaining the difference of opinion would be nice to have instead of simply clicking an arrow, but telling people "the downvoat button is not a disagree button" is limiting free speech just as much as deleting comments would be. Just let people do what they're going to do and keep doing what you're doing and we'll all be fine. Anyone who can't take it can go to those other safe space sites and only vote things up because down is hurtful and wrong.

Voting on what people can and cannot see on the front page, is not a form of free speech. You do have a platform to say what you want to say, to about ten people.

If those 10 people like it, then you can be seen by 10 more, and so on.

Free-speech has nothing to do with popularity. There is some spam on this website, but not that much. I guard the gates of v/new occasionally, but I will never have a ratio like the one I posted
