Usually there is no need to compare Voat and Reddit, but as Voat claims to save free speech a lot of users from Reddit now use Voat and have reestablished their user base there. The Verge has a most comprehensive article about the happenings, about Voat in general and its rise by users coming from Reddit. It is at the same time a lecture about free speech at the internet today: Welcome to Voat: Reddit killer, troll haven, and the strange face of internet free speech.
