I get the issue you're raising and would only add that it may be the case in some instances that a user had decided to lurkmoar prior to posting. That's definitely the case with me. That, and I am a lazy fuck.

Yeah, I can see that. But some of these people are lurking 2-3 years. It's just suspicious to me and to others. If you haven't noticed there are people attacking voat any chance they get. We get ddosed and we get spammers and anti-voaters. It's a good idea to keep an eye out.

What I've seen in the past on forums is that users will use their membership date as a way of saying "hey I'm trustworthy let me be a mod" and then they bring in their friends and takeover a sub. Not all these users are doing it but it's nice to have a place to go and see if someone was actually active in the community or if they were just building up the membership date to then spring into some devious shit.

Yup let's make a list of people we don't like! Maybe then we can then actively start banning them from subs!

This is the shite I wanted away from in Reddit and is SRS territory. Read the words for what they are and then decide.

This isn't a list of people we don't like. It's a list of suspicious users who were dormant and then started posting. It's not for banning users from subs. I do read their words and that is when I hover over their name and see they are one of those suspicious dormant users. There's been a lot of them lately.

Huh, seems like a terrible idea. Take the words at face value, with a pinch of salt. That's what I say.

I question why looking at account age is such a big deal. If you don't like what someone's saying, downvoat & move on.

Does it really matter who is saying it? Or how old their account is? Or their reputation?

Many people here think account age is directly tied to credibility. Hence the old "I've been here longer, you should go back to reddit" schtick.

Many gullible users trust account age at face value, hence the resurgence of old accounts that have either been sold or the redditor that made if has come back to use it.. Best method to check credibility is to see how many pages of comments the account has and whether the account is always been active or I there are long breaks between postings.

When someone has not been active for 2 years and then pops up suddenly it's suspicious. On other sites users do this to gain the trust of people and then take over. Like you yourself have been here for almost 3 years and have that low ccp. Did you just start posting yourself? And you joined on: 6/14/2015... was this the reddit influx?

Okay, fair enough, but IMO it's just a little strange to form an opinion on ideas, based on your opinion of the person saying it.

For example, if if a homeless man and a mathematician both tell me that 2+2 = 4, who's word should I take? It should certainly be the scientist, right?? Not me, I personally would do my own research and find myself an answer, or use someone else's research based on logic and the validity of their research.

Obviously, this is an extreme example, but I still think it applies to "who is saying what, who should I believe, and why?"

Also, yes, I joined during the FPH exodus. And yes, I have been inactive for several months at a time, but have recently begun posting & commenting. Do I go on the list now?

I'm with you on that. People were downvoated for being reddit tier retards before. I still joke around on threads but I try to be original and not use reddit circle twerks.

There's some fishy stuff going on. They thought banning people from reddit would win them the election the way it helped them when they banned Ron Paul and kept him from getting to the frontpage. That's where the "it's happening" meme came from. Ron Paul was frontpage everyday on Reddit before they shut it down. Then they went full china censorship. Now they want to not only censor people on twatter, joogle, nosebook, ghewtube and reddit but they want to destroy any sites people migrate to.

It's funny how they claim to be for immigrants and migrants fleeing a dictatorial regime when they are the dictatorial regime and we are the migrants who flee from them and they come to our new home and attack us even more. Says a lot about their ideology.

I think I'll leave my tin foil hat off for this one. Going around adding users to a database will honestly only push people away. If you are just a lurker and hardly post and now you have some faggot calling you a shill adding you to some list so he can feel like he's doing justice. Maybe that's why some of these people hardly post. Most of the time I avoid it because people like you seem fuckin nuts.

Funny all the people against this are the people who would be considered suspicious. Seems like you guys are plotting something and this is going ruin your plans.
