Agreed. People have intentions that go unfulfilled all the time, especially after nobody complains the first 10 months. ~"Oops I forgot about those GOAT updates I said I was going to do. Oh well, doesn't seem like anyone missed 'em anyway."

The silence around the recent outage is certainly more interesting but even then the simplest explanation is that Putt has his payout and can hardly be bothered to pay attention to the site any longer. What are you gonna do? Sue WhoisGuard in a Panamanian court over your Bitcoin donation? The site is still technically running 90% of the year.

EDIT: Putt apparently doesn't draw a well earned salary from voat. That's a pretty explanatory factor for why he might feel drained by voat rather than energized. In retrospect, this comment comes off as less appreciative than it should, although, I was cognizant of my own set of under-completed projects and meant pretty much the same thing as being burnt out.

I really love it when I run into people who still have basic competence. Thank you, 1HepCat, thank you for that.

Any number of explanations could be applied to this. All we can do is speculate, and speculating and asking questions is all fine. It's when people decide to come to conclusions and make knowledge claims that things get messy. You see userbases divided and myths accepted as facts. All we can do is wait and see, and if we have to wait too long, individuals can choose to leave.
