Where reddit's code is an ancient fossilized mess written in a scripting language, Voat's code is new and flexible, designed with multiple communities and powerful tools in mind from the start, and written in a much more powerful language. This means Voat will be easier to change than reddit, and able to implement more nuanced features.

I take offence in the way you refer to these matters. Bash is a scripting language, Python is not and while the problems you mention may be true their cause is poor management, lack of resources / manpower, different priorities such as scaling up in traffic and lack of discipline and policies when growing the codebase, all those could happen in any project regardless of the programming language used, C# is not going to prevent these or even make them any easier to handle, specially on 10+ year old systems.
