They can train to be soft cunts at reddit if they like. This is at best a naive idea that would reset voat back to the when we had mods here on defaults who thought they owned those subs by virtue of time spent modding them. If you are concerned about frilly nickers getting upset then like kevdude said they have a block button to protect them from nasties already. I'm not opposed to having stricter filters that can be applied on a person by person basis to complement the block button but not like this.

I can understand flagging porn due to work constrictions, and by flagging I mean exactly that, not hiding it. As far as Wrongthink? Wrong site.

I am strongly against safe space or the idea of creating a "safe space" on Voat. They already have that shit on the cancerous reddit. If new users have problem of been offended, they don't need to read or visit the offending subverses. Besides, they can create their own fucking Sets to exclude the "offending" subverses.

But another view of the subverse, say /s/pics for instance could have the same basic content, but with a different (super?) set of moderators that attempt to moderate for content quality and "mainstream" appeal.

Wow, I feel like wannabe mods are slowly trying to turn us gay with faggot suggestions like this.

You really think someone that made something like that would really want to trample or purpose something that was censorship.

He used the term "safe space" and he is suggesting moderated defaults, so yes. I think he has long term goals.

Can't you just subscribe to the subs you want to see and view your own front page? How is that not already built in?

Check his post. He is talking about putting safe space mods back into the defaults. Sure he is suggesting a 2-tiered approach, but we all know that would just be the first step

Oh, fuck that. Let people be free to subscribe to what they feel is "safe" for them if they want. That is plenty.

Only if you don't trust @puttitout. I do.

If you don't trust puttitout nothing else matters here, and the place is doomed to fail just like reddit did.

I respect (and agree with) what you're trying to do here at Voat; but I've been there. If puttitout ever does become a censorious scumbag you will quickly realize just how utterly powerless you and everyone else here are to do anything effectual about the matters you care about.

To the extent that content here is centralized it is very vulnerable to being shut down at the whim of outsiders that Voat is necessarily dependent on.

Need I remind you that Voat relies on cloudflare as well?

If this place remains easily dismissed as only the haven of Coontown and FatPeopleHate it will be easily shuttered whenever controversy strikes.

Adoption by the masses does not just bring with it cat memes and pun threads, it brings a level of security against outside intervention by "legitimizing" the site in the eyes of those who would otherwise attempt to (and easily succeed) at rallying outside censors.

Strong censorship resistance is not going to survive on the shoulders of unenforced social policy on a centralized website.

It will be achieved through making the bits physically impossible to suppress.

I want a safe space from pedophile bullshit. I propose we make that happen by doxxing them and tossing them in the Arctic sea.

Anyone who uses the words "safe space" is a nigger-faggot and needs to be shot in the head. It's really that simple. The reasons don't matter; "safe space" is a code phrase, and if you don't understand just how fucking dangerous it is you need to take your fat basement-dwelling mangina ass back to reddit, where it belongs....
