no it isnt, not exactly, voat has a much different source code.

what he's saying is saidit is a legit clone, using reddit's old open source code, lol.

the word clone is kindly used broadly to describe a type of platform or game that is similar

voat literally was a reddit clone for a long time though before they re-wrote their source code in .NET, just throwing that out there

Yeah I think they got scared off by the codebase, plus were ignorant (or scared of) copyright law.

Then they re-wrote themselves right in to $6k/mo Azure licensing fees lol

They're stumbling around blindly like Mr. Magoo. :P
