The idea that you can't post there without being logged in should be the first dead give away.

I didn't expect to be completely anonymous from the website's owners. With all of the anti-spam and DDOS protections, logging in to post anonymously is understandable, even if it's not a perfect solution. The owners giving that same access to their friends and cohorts without being open about it, is what's concerning. If there was a list of users with these admin privileges, we could at least hold the group accountable. As it stands it looks like putt himself is making these comments, because we don't know who else could. At the very least he is responsible for the violations of anonymity because he allowed it to happen.

Now do you fuckers see why I find it alarming that Putt appears to be friendly with SBBH? He lets them run rampant.

Was going to ask if you had an idea who was making the comments. You think it was Putt? What was so egregious for your comments that folks had to call you out?

If you were able to post there without being logged in, there would be no way to protect voat against massive spam attacks, etc. There still should be one, and only one username to a person.

Sounds self defeating then, either it's anonymous and requires no login but moderation, or it's not and is merely a deliberate facade as OP notes.

I agree with one username.

Right? I never considered them anon if they're linked to your account.

Yeah, OP is dumb to get caught up in this. 93% of anon posts are shitposts. I'd be happier if the feature just went away.
Voat is cool. It has it's ups and downs but it's not an imageboard.

It would be good to require a login to reduce spam. There is however no good reason they are documenting the user for the post. Other than either maliciousness or pure laziness.
