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.

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'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.

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

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.

[–] inaminit 6 points

Saying moar means more than more, by how much I do not know.

"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.

@Aged is not welcome here

[–] inaminit 17 points

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.

I caught the warning. But I did go to the comment history of the loli posters and DV everything I could. A one man brigade I guess.

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

I LOVE THIS PART:

All images, videos or depictions of any kind that show sexually explicit or suggestive content involving children (whether virtual or real) is strictly prohibited.

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

[–] PMYB2 9 points

I get one right every once in a while.

[–] binaca 0 point

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

[–] shawnh 6 points

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. ;)

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

Good to know this platform has good standards.

No idea what all the commotion is all about with regard to platforms like Voat etc., but understand why people are leaving social platforms lacking in free speech in droves.

Just arrived here looking for an alternative to dissenter (always good to have backups to platforms). Not really like dissenter, but I like what I see. A good alternative to libtard overreaching on Reddit.
