Seems like a good place here. It's like voat without the bullshit so far.
We definitely need more free speech platforms. Reddit went full SJW. Voat became some weird ass place for many haters rather than facts and logics, also a potential honeypot with weird ass developers and admins thinking they are gods and ignores to communicate with the peasants.
I read this isn't even .Net? So you are using the frontend from voats or reddits open source. Had no idea Microshit took a license fee of thousands of dollars a month for using their Azure .Net which seems to be the case for voat.
Keeping costs down for popular social platforms seems to be tricky. P2P might be answer.
