This goes beyond religion. Submissions that go against the circlejerks on Voat usually get more downvotes. This has a negative effect on small communities since it hurts their ability to grow.

In general I try to upvote any submission I see that looks like a good fit for the subverse it's posted in even if I disagree with it.

Yes. For example I haven't been downvoting atheist posts as a religious person. That's only going to make different communites hate eachother.

For that same reason I've stopped downvoting /v/meanwhile and /v/protectvoat even though I find both sides retarded (especially meanwhile). I realize that a downvote from me will just look like one of the other camps and egg the battle on further.

Downvotes are for spam and misinformation, and drama when a downvote won't cause more.

So while we are on /v/religion don't feel bad downvoting those videos in chinese. It's not like any of us will understand it and it is spam. But please on the other hand look to see if it happens to be halarious. They had a play posted earlier. It was like 3 hours of epic adam and eve stuff and crap out of revelations all done with singing and cheap Chinese special effects. I wish it hadn't gotten downvoted because voat would have loved it.
