I've been avoiding Voat as well. It just seems like it's just a place for people to whine about Reddit on a place where literally everyone hates it, even though they get back on it and go on about how they're "so done with Reddit and totally going to Voat and never coming back". On top of that, it's largely made up of /r/conspiracy nuts and /r/fatpeoplehate supporters, which are two groups I've been trying to distance myself from.
This place seems really nice, though. Sure, there's a lot of discussion about Reddit, but I think it's because everything's still fresh. It's like a normal break-up: you talk about it a lot at first, but then you move on.
