Then sane comments that call out the nonsense are downvoted:

Voat is overrun with shills, and white supremacists who can't tell they're surrounded by shills. Voat has a lot of free speech, but very little moral backbone despite all the grandstanding they do. I guess that's what happens when you let white supremecist neo-nazis literally take over your site and run it for their own benefit. They'll cheer on murder as long as the people killed have the skin color and religion they don't like.


This is why voat can't be the next reddit. This is why we had to build saidit, to give people a 3rd option, because one didn't really exist. Free information for those who aren't completely lost to extremist ideology. Which is why this site used to be called back in the day

I've read this before I think from you, and I don't really understand what you mean. You are creating a space for non-extreme content, right? So first of all how do you define that? Secondly, with the content being user generated, what are you going to do if you have an extremist user or extremist sub?

Can you please go into more detail about specifically how you plan to make this site different?

So first of all how do you define that?

By the pyramid of debate, check out the site rules:

If something is so extremist it's repeatedly not adding value as per the pyramid of debate, then it'll be removed.

That looks like an excuse to justify removing peoples whose ideologies don't align with yours to me.

It's not ideological in a left/right sense, it's just low on the pyramid of debate.

Any one who starts censoring people will use it to censor those who disagree with them.

A complete lack of any content removal will end up in this site looking like voat, which is against our stated goal
