If they've been on Eddit this long, I fear there is no hope. They've gone full faggot.

just tell them they're niggerfaggotkikes that deserve to burn in the eternal oven god made for them. Similar sentiments have had me banned from a subverse a while back.

I've been on reddit pretty much since its inception, and my wake-up call was when I was automatically banned from a women's advice sub in which I was a regular Dear Abby for having commented on a post in /r/tumblrinaction (a marvelous - for reddit - sub made for mocking tumblr and SJW garbage). I only discovered voat a couple years ago, but I immediately made the switch almost entirely for all those types of general lurking/browsing needs.

That doesn't mean you have to like everyone here. There are many who seem to come across as either edgy fourteen year olds LARPing that they are hardcore revolutionary commandos or that they really are unable to comprehend that while there certainly are moral and ideological absolutes, it's okay that not every thing and not every person are entirely black and white. There are people here who are upvoted and praised for their philosophy that an honorable, reasonable, productive, and neighborly person who committed the cardinal sin of being born not-white is irredeemably subhuman, while all white men = god until proven leftist. There are people here who talk openly about how every person with the same gender as me or my daughters is not even a person, is retarded/evil/worthless, and is good for nothing but being raped. There are people here who freely mock my family and our beliefs in the exact same ways as the most godless subs on reddit, but with the exception of also adding that being Christians makes us bad white people. ...And with all that, I still like this better than reddit. That should say something.

I still frequent reddit, posting general red-pill material and getting banned, discussing things in some of the decent political/social subs still remaining, and participating in a few niche interest communities that are hard to find as developed elsewhere. At some point when I have a little more time, I'd like to take a more active role in helping some of those niche subs grow here.

Freedom of speech allows people who disagree to communicate and debate. Removal of free speech creates a hive mind since anyone who doesn't conform to the group think is removed. As an atheist, I'd rather go to a forum where a bunch of Christians and Muslims spend all day trying to convert me and I can tell them to fuck off than a forum of atheists were you aren't allowed to question atheism.
