Thank you. I for one appreciate the fact you've clarified the pedo issue. Especially the last sentence of that paragraph. There is a tendency lately to claim any depictions of degeneracy are permissable "because free speech".

Child abuse is not speech.

Dude. I wish more people would realize this. I'd go so far as to say, "Public displays of mischief" are never free speech.

[–] PMYB2 [OP] 1 point (+1|-0)

Eh, I could see an argument that trolling is free speech but only to an extent, if you are using your speech to silence others speech thats not right.

Is a profile picture with no evidence of who it actually belongs to doxx? Or can anyone claim any picture is them to have it removed?

Like what if a dude pretended to be a girl and sent out dirty pics that weren't actually him but then someone shared those pics. That wouldn't be real doxx.

But that account could claim that with no evidence. This behavior forced a decision by voat admin but there is no evidence it was real doxx.

Also no real name was ever involved. So an original naked picture that can't be confirmed to be anyone real given the nature of anonymity could always be a LARP you feel me?

I know this is old and I'm new ... but if it were a pic of you, you could send a pic to one of the admins to prove it was you.

I'm glad about it, tbh. It was a real thorn in voat's reputation, until PizzaGate effectively dispelled the myth. But for a while, it was pretty fucked. Am forever grateful that those guys almost single-handedly put a stop to all that crap.

@PMYB2 bestiality is legal in the US... just saying. Does chet wark?

Simple and to the point, I like that. No weird pedo shit, I like that even moar. Thanks for having us.

[–] PMYB2 [OP] 7 points (+7|-0)

No problem, I love poal.co I'm happy to have all you new guys.

Why do I keep seeing 'more' spelled as 'moar'? Honest question. I've never had 'more' auto corrected to 'moar'. Genuinely curious.

"Lurk moar" has been a meme 'forever'. Don't know how it started, but it was a thing on 4chan back in the early oughts.

I’m clearly out of the loop, lol, which, being an older poalr, I’m fine with. But thank you to all who replied! Now I know.

@Aged is not welcome here

I got banned by downvoating the bastard and those like him. Apparently, being a Pedo is A-OK and that's just the cost of 'free speech' @Voat.

[–] PMYB2 [OP] 8 points (+8|-0)

Sure they are, they are just not welcome to abuse children here.

Well that would really cramp their style. 100% support from me on the "no lolicon" policy.

[–] PMYB2 [OP] 4 points (+4|-0)

Thank you I thought it was a pretty good idea, I crafted that one very early on I believe I had some help.

I LOVE THIS PART:

Such a simple thing to express and enforce. No drama, no bullshit about it being "legal"... Man, you're making me like it here!

yea except what you don't know apparently is that bestiality isnt illegal in the US

NO beastiality, thanks dude. Now I have to replan my entire posting scheduled. On the pedo stuff can I post stuff of a child forcefully molesting me, just asking for a friend. ;)

[–] PMYB2 [OP] 3 points (+3|-0)

No sir you may not.

you're supposed to respond as sarcastically as my post like Owlcherry did. :D

[–] PMYB2 [OP] 3 points (+3|-0)

Oh okay here goes

Well what you should have done is plan to post gay midget tranny porn instead, I can't be making everyone's plans for them I'm a busy many after all I've got that faggot convention to attend.

There are more intelligent ppl on poal than I ever met on reddit or voat.. they know this be true

Hopefully the BO isnt as bipolar as some....consistency offers stability...glad to be here...

This reminded me to bring special attention to that rule on /s/ElderScrolls

Unfortunately, that stuff is prevalent in the modding community.

[–] PMYB2 [OP] 2 points (+2|-0)

Thank you for respecting the rule.

Well, when we were smaller, I didn't really think it'd be a problem. But now that we're getting attention, that brings (((attention))). I don't mind porn being posted, as it is a huge part of the modding community. People share their characters, and that will probably mean porn. Unfortunately, loli and beast is prevalent in the modding community as well, so not explicitly addressing it, leaves the sub open to bullshit. So, I was thinking about addressing it throughout the migration, but this post made me decide to explicitly address it before it even became a problem.

Question. What about Argonians and Khajiit? Personally, to me, they're scalie/furry, not beast. While I don't like it and consider them borderline, I'd allow them. Just want to get your input, just in case. Get the matter settled before it becomes a problem.

[–] PMYB2 [OP] 3 points (+3|-0)

I'd allow that because its fantasy not actual bestiality so probably legal. I'd probably say use your best judgment? If something gets posted and its a problem I'll make sure to come talk to you about it before any further action is taken.
