Reddit user suggests migrating to Voat and down-voting "racist, shitty content" with their "knights" over redesign. submitted by kwibjo to MeanwhileOnReddit

Keeping a community's integrity intact is actually a pretty interesting problem. The most common solutions I see to this are gatekeeping methods, such as you suggested, or giving more power to the power users. I think Digg had something like the latter.

Well, let's run the numbers for a second. Reddit is the #6 site in the US, while Voat is somewhere in the thousands. Voat gets maybe 200 upvoats for front page posts, while Reddit gets tens of thousands. It's pretty safe to say there are more Redditors than Voat users. The deciding factor as to which group would win a battle for Voat is how strongly the current inhabitants resist.

You make good points, and now that I think about it it seems obvious that Reddit would want their population to stay on the site. But I don't know what you mean by

Federal law forbids Reddit (a public site) from deleting /r/the_donald

Do you mean in a metaphorical sense? Because Reddit has deleted subs before, such as fatpeoplehate and coontown (a racism sub) and physicalremoval (a conservative sub that advocated violence against liberals) as well as generally gross subs like incels.

Dude what the fuck. Those aren't facts at all. Do you have any meta studies backing up those claims? Immigrants, especially illegal ones, are too afraid to get government aid.

Thanks for providing statistics. However, this is an extrapolation of a more general case.

Poor people are more likely to commit crimes, and because of America's past (slavery and institutionalized racism) the average black person is still in a bad spot economically when compared to whites. There's definitely some element of culture in there, but I don't think there's any inherent different between races, as all credible studies to that effect have found nothing.
