    It seems like the right-wingers are going to voat, and the left-wingers are going to Snapzu and to a lesser extent Hubski. Reddit really did feel a bit like being in a prison-gang war sometimes.

      On the bright side I think most the people from Fat People Hate went over to Voat. So we may have dodged that bullet!

        Don't forget /r/conspiracy and most of the Free Speech Warriors. Since they already have an established community on voat, the people moving to other Reddit alternatives are the ones who are the opposite of those people.

          Ya I tried to avoid Voat because that is where it looks like all the people I hated from Reddit were headed. Plus I didn't really want to get involved in the community that the jailbait subreddit moved to.

            I was under the impression that they closed down the jailbait subs on Voat. And I've never encountered any of the fat people haters or right wing people. That being said, this place seems nice and I also don't want to just go to a Reddit clone. It's just going to go downhill faster that way. Hopefully we can 10 years out of this site before it becomes too corrupt to want to be on.

              They did indeed close down the jailbait subs, which resulted in a lot of community members criticizing that decision. During my time there, however, I did see a lot of FPH posts reaching the front page before they excluded themselves from /v/all, and the right wing seems to be really prevalent there. I have become invested in Voat before the whole FPH drama, I have donated to it, and I will go there when the servers are back up, but I am also going around places like Snapzu and Hubski to see what I like the most.

            I agree. I just hope there isn't any drama in Snapzu because it eventually became overwhelming on Reddit both these past few days and for the past few years now.

              I think eventually there is drama everywhere. It's a symptom of people.

              Drama is inevitable. The question is, can we move on from those events?

              @PrismDragon -

              More importantly, can we derive constructive lessons from those moments?

          You could literally give most of the folks over at r/conspiracy a megaphone and a crowd of 10,000,000 people and tell them they can say whatever they want, they would still tell you that the government has programmed the megaphone to alter what they are saying. There is no speech free enough for them.

          So, as a new member here from reddit, you're trying to tell me that Snapzu can be reddit without the assholes? I like it!

        Yeahh. I could not stand that community. Was kind of glad they were gone honestly.

          Except they aren't. There are still plenty of people spewing anti-fat hatred on reddit. The only difference is there isn't a dedicated place for it any more.

      Well, damn, right-winger here-- more like middle-winger but that's beside the fact-- and I love Snapzu so far. However, I have not had a look at Voat yet.

        I'm an independent who was told in one of those online political quizzes that I didn't agree with ANY major candidates. I like Snapzu better because it isn't just a Reddit clone. I like the experience system so far.

          It's similar enough that you can figure it out pretty easily though. Now if only it had an RES equivalent.

      I feel like Voat is a bit 'doomed', per se, and I find it sad. I must admit, the mods seem to care much more about the community, but it is just too similar to reddit. The cycle is just going to continue again if you're only going to keep making clones. Snapzu gets my bias because of how original it is, compared to every other social media platform.

      I'm just signing up for everything and seeing what one wins

      To me, it seems like voat is less right-wingers and more people who are there simply to hate, sadly -- mostly because it became popular at the same time that FPH and similar subs were banned on Reddit.
