Thanks for the thoughtful comment. I agree that most outsiders landing on Voat would be horrified. One thing I would say is that when this all happened (mid-2016) I believe that Voat was much less anti-Jew and anti-Black than it is now. If I still worked at the University I wouldn't wear a Voat shirt there now.

However I do still wear the shirt in public, and your comment has reminded me that some people who see it will instantly think I am an antisemitic racist POS. My own justification is that I believe free expression of ideas is more valuable than any specific idea. That's why I continue to support and promote Voat.
