In 1962 a strange spring was found in northern Texas. Despite being 500 miles from any coast, it was home to marine species such as crabs, barnacles and seaweed, all isolated thousands of years prior when the sea levels rose and fell. Sadly, all this was wiped out after a dike was built. (en.wikipedia.org)

did you get the idea for /s/whatever from Voat? Don't remember that being a subreddit over at Reddit. I suppose the downvote equivalent here is a no vote because not all things you disagree with are funny.

For sure, but so far magnora and derr who I think are the only owners here have been proving to be outstanding. I don't know what way to make sure or monitor that it stays that way. But I think that's the only structure we need to worry about.

I just hope the leadership here can resist the situation or temptation that the leaders of Digg, Reddit, and Voat all seemed to have fell for as time went on. Human nature is hard to overcome.

9/11 Truth is quarantined at Reddit. Pizzagate is banned. QAnon is banned. BostonBombing is banned. SandersForPresident was banned.
Here I think porn is banned. Is gore and death/snuff films banned here? Any other limitations?
Supposedly Voat is a glory hole or honey pot whatever you call it. Compromised. Is this place as well or could it be. What are the tests to make sure it isn't.
So far so good.

These criminally inflated prices amount to overcharging of 5,000 percent, 21,000 percent, even 177,000 percent.
Thanks Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Northrup Grumman, General Dynamics, SAIC, Booz Allen Hamilton, and the rest of the criminal "Defense" Mega Corporations that are robbing Americans blind.

Could've been. They direct and try to control the flow of internet traffic. /r/SandersForPresident was broken up and directed to /r/Political_Revolution and effectively splintered and disempowered. Hard to predict what will transpire with all of this.
Donald J. Trump: "So it was indeed (just proven in court papers) “last in his class” (Annapolis) John McCain that sent the Fake Dossier to the FBI and Media hoping to have it printed BEFORE the Election.
