Also, if you're posting a screen shot of something - provide an archived link to the source to prove you're not lying.

Typically when a post title or the underlying article is disinformation is a flat-out lie, the top comment will dispel it with factual information. Coming to Voat is like a handful of little redpills this way, and I like this naturally emerging format. Don't get your panties in a bunch.

Even after it’s been debunked, it’ll have many more upvotes than downvoats.

Many, it seems, vote solely on the title alone.

A lot of people only read headlines and not the whole article. People are busy, propagandists exploit this by writing misleading headlines, too. Shills on voat are just carrying that tactic forward another step.

I'm wondering if maybe it's a good idea to create separate posts to call out such fake news posts and encourage people to down vote them into oblivion in the same way we do for people begging for upvotes

Yeah, but having a falsehood as the #1 post on voat for half a day makes us all look like foolish chumps. It's embarrassing.

If the top comment proves the post wrong, down oat the whole post on your way out.

Last time I was here, this was the fake one, regarding the location of the (((duckduckgo.com))): https://voat.co/v/whatever/2892364. I queried a large number of DNS around the world, and could not find anything connected to isreal as claimed in that screenshot.

As you can see, that fake shit got over 2k views, 140uv and only 32dv!
