I think about this often. People are driven by a need for acceptance. They sometimes forget what certain forms of acceptance cost them.

Also no porn, which probably cuts into their numbers. I get the reasoning behind the no porn rule, but I would think that after moving their servers this wouldn't be worth worrying about.

To me the worst examples aren't political, but are found in the health-related articles. Some weird college conducts a study that "proves" carrots are the key to eternal life. World proceeds to flip the fuck out. Next month another study "proves" that carrots give you scabies. Carrot market crashes. Riots in the streets. A lot of people are easily led.

A lot of people have a great faith in statistics. This is often ironic because many of these same people don't have the fullest understanding of how statistics work. Look! Here's a chart! Look! Here are numbers, lined up in a row! Look! Here are some percentages! All of which means that I'm 100% correct!

This, and wading into the weaknesses of their pet study usually isn't worth the effort. They just keep returning to the items above, like a snake eating its own tail.

Praise Satan. I was worried this was an internet-wide thing and I hadn't noticed. Funny thing is I'm not sure how my comments were "right-leaning" even now. Some guy (had to be a guy) made a comment on how only white guys masturbate to/view porn, and my contradictory point of view triggered the downvote contingent.

After it happened I wondered if the whole thing was a joke.

The Admin of Voat breaks down the problems he sees with Voat, and how they're going to change the site to "by providing a way the community itself can 'vote' on policy (rules, mods, anything actually)" by magnora7 in MeanwhileOnVoat

[–]TimesThreeTheHighest 3 insightful - 4 fun3 insightful - 3 fun4 insightful - 4 fun -  (0 children)

I came here straight from Voat. Two ongoing arguments with other Voat users: 1) Whether a 14 year old who slept with 12 men or so in a year qualifies as a "whore" or was sexually abused, and 2) Whether all women are evil sexual tricksters or not.

That's pretty much the level of most Voat discussion. It seems like Voat's creator understands the problem, but they're stuck in a kind of feedback loop with Reddit now, wherein those purged from Reddit seek out that site.

I feel like the only way to make a site like that an authentic alternative to Reddit is to engage with it, so I do. I have to limit these engagements to a few minutes a day, but hey, it's something to do. Why not troll the trolls? It's not like I give much of a fuck about people with obviously retarded opinions!

Not all that much actually, mostly because my birth dad ran off when I was six. No need to cry on my account, I got a much better dad soon after.

My father is/was Mexican. I don't even know if he's still alive.

My mom is mostly Irish with some Scandinavian thrown in. My mom's side of the family migrated from Ireland to Vancouver Island and the Yukon Territory, then some of them moved to Illinois, then my grandma moved to Montana where she raised my mom. That's about the extent of my knowledge.

I was led here by a post on r/RedditAlternatives. I've been playing around with various Reddit options for a couple weeks now. I'm on Raddle. I'm on Voat. I'm on Tildes. It's not all that dissatisfied with Reddit, but I was curious as to what else was out there.

By the way, how does a brand-new user like me go about creating a new sub? I've been using Saidit for approximately five minutes and can't figure out how to do it.
