Fair but that's legal, for now, in the states. Spied on, but legal.

They have a citation, that's what the [16] is.

I just checked the site, that phrase is no longer there, though they do say:

Voat's Germany-based web hosting service, Host Europe (a precursor to Webfusion), shut down the service in June 2015 and alleged Voat "was publicizing incitement of people, as well as abusive, insulting and youth-endangering content" as well as "illegal right-wing extremist content".

This is their citation

The Voat page is also

Part of a series on:
Antisemitism


I checked the history of the page, the phrase in OP's image was removed yesterday with this note:
"The source on "it is known for illegally sharing material" only talks about how sites with free speech will eventually have to deal with copyright restrictions, and mentions a single example (that time when celebrity nudes got leaked), which could be applied to any similar site, like reddit."

This is the citation they used:

They probably had seen a picture with a white guy and a white woman and a white kid forming a family and got triggered hard.

Good information. Maybe I'm just old and slow but I don't understand how to look at their edits page. Seems like a bunch of randomness.

They have updated the page now, what they had is gone. Weird coincidence that I just noticed it right before it went down.

(((Copyright))) lost any legitimacy when you you can't use works from almost 100 years ago, long after the creators have been dead.

That shit was meant to end after 20 years after which it became public domain. Copyright was fair in that sense but what we have now is a perversion of protection laws to encourage greed by people who should have no right to the shekels they collect. (((Disney))) is the worst offender.

Disney is what caused it. They lobbied for copyright protections to last an extra 20 years. Mickey Mouse makes them a lot of fucking money -- a lot of money that Walt Disney never wanted them to get their grubby little hands on. To me, Walt Disney was the greatest American artist ever. And they took his magic and the happiest place on earth and spit on it.

I can respect 20 years of copyright, just like i can respect the length of a patent. But at a certain point art doesn't just belong to those who created it, it becomes part of the cultural heritage of a nation. It is the commercialization of what was once a proud tradition. Imagine of the works of Shakespeare were copyrighted for hundreds of years, ridiculous.
