Snippet -

Voat was designed as a substitute for Reddit: At time when Reddit is getting criticized for scrubbing “problematic” comments and conversations, Voat was supposed to a freer-speech alternative.

But now it may be shutting down because of financial difficulties. The site racked up $6,600 in hosting costs in April. Donations, advertisements and merchandise “only put a dent” in the costs, and the company doesn’t feel comfortable running a donation campaign to help. Voat has been unable to secure outside funding and struggles with accepting donations after PayPal cut it off for hosting “obscene” content.

It is sad to read that Voat is struggling financially. Our alternate site, Gamingfringe, is on Voat and currently has 38 members. I hope it doesn't belly-up.

Maybe this will spur some financial support. Given how Reddit is run, I don't think it will be much more than an SJW echo chamber within a year.

Reddit has hit is plateau. All that is next is for the next social platform to come about.
