That was how I saw it too. Voat might be a different place if it wasn't seeded from forums like FPH and other similar communities. It kind of set the tone for the whole place. I realize they mostly think they are just doing the whole racial epithet thing as a canary in a coal mine, but being the exact opposite of PC short circuits intelligent discussion every bit as effectively as being PC does.

Let's not call the lack of basic manners the opposite of PC.

By exact opposite, I kind of meant it in a mirror image sort of way. Generally just behaving as if an insult of a person or group is good enough to "win" a discussion or make a point, but with the opposite groups that PC generally attacks.
