Inspired by looking through old posts:
I felt like voat was supposed to be the chosen one to save us from reddit. Which is why I felt so let down when it got so taken-over. Which is why we had to make saidit.
I ended up here because I don't like reddit seeming to be so "far left," for lack of a better way to say it, though "left vs. right" doesn't really seem the best way to describe things. It generally seems pretty hostile to whites, and to people who think "sexual orientation" isn't a real thing. And the site admins don't seem to do anything to obvious abuse of their site (camping /r/againstgaymarriage, failing to protect the participation of non-leftists in /r/exchristian, were a few of my experiences). I like some non-political reddit subs but in general I don't really feel like I can speak my mind honestly, or like other people can, and I don't think that's a great environment. So I'm finding myself checking out alternatives. I saw someone on /r/debatealtright say "we should move to saidit!" so I ended up here.
It seems like there are other people from different backgrounds who found themselves here, though. I'm curious to know how other people ended up here, and what problems other groups have had while using reddit that lead them here.
