I think the problem is having "friends" on a web site. Come on, what's the deal? Just post interesting links and write comments. If someone is actually a friend then add them to some kind of chat program.

All of this site drama lately seems to be coming from people who spend waaaay too much time here. :(

Rich coming from you.

I valued DioJr's insights. We were considering collaborating on some things too.

[–]Chipit 3 insightful - 3 fun3 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 3 fun -  (12 children)

Why do you have to collaborate on this website? There are thousands of others. Add him on a messaging client.

[–]JasonCarswell[S] 11 insightful - 3 fun11 insightful - 2 fun12 insightful - 3 fun -  (11 children)

Why does anyone? Why do you?

I'm here for the content and community. These you won't find anywhere else.

[–]Chipit 5 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 2 fun -  (4 children)

Ah. There's your problem. The "community". There's no "community" here, it's just a bunch of random people posting on a website. They post interesting stuff, and leave comments. That's all. Pretending it's something that it's not is the root of the fallacy here.

I agree. As you know, I've been curious about Saidit for the past couple months, and I do see here on a regular basis approximately 10 users who - though they want to support a free speech site - will abuse the fuck out of anyone who does not agree with them. M7 and others know this. Those 10 users, including Chipit and Airbus, should try to listen to other approaches on Saidit (if those users bother to return). As Amelia has previously argued (I vaguely recall), Saidit is at its best when there is diversity (in several senses of that term) and less extremism (at both ends). But the disinformation and misinformation posts are among the favorites on this site, and questioning them will prompt abuses against that user. As noted on Reddit - regarding Saidit - it's a bunch of schizo rejects who like to discuss /r/pol (or something like that). My main point here is that Saidit is indeed a community, even if one might wonder why 10 users have taken over the politics discussions, and sometimes draw down the discussion into idiotic insults because they can't debate. I like discussing alternernative approaches to politics, so I return to Saidit to see what the Alt-right thinks. One of the informative contributors has been /u/diogenesjunior, though I often disagreed with him. At least he could carry on a discussion. I hope more Saiditors will follow the pyramid of debate rules, and thereby engage in debate rather than hurl insults. This would help diversify the community. And it may never happen without 'downvote' buttons, but that's another discussion. I also hope they'll PM M7 in support of /u/diogenesjunior.

Excellently insightful.

I don't agree with DioJr on all things either, and shouldn't need to.

SaidIt is vastly superior without a downvote. This was genius on M7 and/or D3's parts.

[–]Airbus320 4 insightful - 4 fun4 insightful - 3 fun5 insightful - 4 fun -  (0 children)

Yep this, Jason takes this site way too seriously

[–]Akali 4 insightful - 4 fun4 insightful - 3 fun5 insightful - 4 fun -  (5 children)

I think I kind of agree with you there. This site is like a small community 4chan.

I like stumbling on a banter between Sock and airbus. It's always entertaining. They are like Sasuke and Naruto pretending to hate each others.

[–]Comatoast 4 insightful - 4 fun4 insightful - 3 fun5 insightful - 4 fun -  (3 children)

Your first mistake was thinking Jason might understand an anime reference.

If you compared it maybe to the old generals in /vg/ where it's the same people that visit, I could kinda see similarities.

[–]JasonCarswell[S] 4 insightful - 4 fun4 insightful - 3 fun5 insightful - 4 fun -  (2 children)

Ironically professional animator is my lifelong career. I've just never gotten into anime (nor video games) and for the last 20 years I've had little interest in the animation world. I do love to see the big glossy animated movies on occasion though, even if some of them have incomprehensibly repulsive character designs.

[–]Comatoast 3 insightful - 3 fun3 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 3 fun -  (1 child)

Western cartoons have gotten... uglier in the last 20 years. Obviously there's outliers, but the reliance on cg has made everything just.. gross, and lack the personality that older cartoons had.

[–]JasonCarswell[S] 2 insightful - 3 fun2 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

Can't argue with that too much even though it's a broad generalization. Some of it is a lack of talent, a lack of leadership, a lack of aesthetics, and/or a lack of style.

[–]JasonCarswell[S] 1 insightful - 4 fun1 insightful - 3 fun2 insightful - 4 fun -  (0 children)

Sasuke and Naruto

I didn't know if those were 4chan folks or what so I had to look that up.

[–]JasonCarswell[S] 7 insightful - 3 fun7 insightful - 2 fun8 insightful - 3 fun -  (3 children)

FYI, /u/diogenesjunior PMed me.



If so I'd like your feedback on how you'd prefer I proceed.

I don't know if it is worth it at this point. The "save saidit" guys are twisting what everyone is saying to fit their own weird agenda, and i feel magnora7 will ban whoever at this point.

IMO, Sunday night and/or Monday morning I think I should AskSaidIt and ALSO PM and cc my /s/friends.

If that doesn't work, don't take any further action. Don't want to risk you getting banned too.

(Skipped a longer verbose response from me, yesterday.)


May I quote your words?


Tell me you're not affiliated with IronLeft/LXXX and I'll believe you.

they keep PMing me, so wierd. anything i tell them gets twisted out of proportion, lol.

I responded:

In this case, yes/no, would have been much clearer and definitive.

He responded:



Why am I sharing this?

Because this is NOT just "Us vs M7" though he keeps portraying it like that. I am separate from DioJr who seems very separate from IronLeft. This is NOT an organized attack. This is TWO separate events, and an ongoing accumulating SaidIt problem that M7 fails to do anything about. This kind of thing will NOT go away because he hopes it will. New solutions must be added. I do not need them to be mine. I just want SaidIt better.

[–][deleted] 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

As mentioned before, I support your efforts and the unbanning of /u/diogenesjunior, and have recommended that others send PMs to M7 (as we've done) politely asking for him to be unbanned, noting the reasons for the potential benefit to Saidit.

[–]JasonCarswell[S] 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

One one hand I generally liked Dio's contributions but on the other, he'd occasionally make posts leading to people's bans. I mean, isn't that exactly where this whole thing going on started.

I've noticed that about Saidit in general though, every so often someone has to dredge up some drama. I used to have an almost weekly one on me in one reddit sub. It was not a pleasant experience.

[–]JasonCarswell[S] 5 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 2 fun -  (47 children)

First I'm hearing about this.

How do you mean leading to their bans? I don't know how it started. It takes two to tango. You say "people" meaning more than one. Were they trolls or people with bad tempers or suckers baited by some manipulation?

Drama and conflict is inevitable. It's how you manage it. Making it secret helps no one.

What do you mean "on you"? Airbus320 is stalking me trying to stir up some shit. You mean like that? Sadly, it may be effective against those in a weak state or vulnerable moment.

I'm tired of this whole mess alfuckingready and want to move on. But today is my first "protest" day (I should have waited until Tuesday or Wednesday but I'd rather see DioJr return last week) and I've been procrastinating PMing folks to updoot this post. I don't feel great about PMing folks. Maybe next week. I dunno.

I wrote about it yesterday in my post. No one said anything about it, including you. It's not sock puppetry, but it is notifying my friends via private message and THEY get to decide for themselves or even tell me to fuck off if they wish to.

However, I haven't even bothered to yet today, because I'm tired of this and your shit. I expect everyone else is too. Still, I intend to do it next week.

Today's "vote boost" wouldn't make much diff at this point in the day anyway, but I could invite them to repost it aaaaaaaall week - but with different images.

    What is your job? To get me banned? To be divisive? To harm SaidIt?

    [–][deleted] 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

    He's not known for thoughts that go deeper than the intial knee-jerk. He reads all of Saidit each day and reacts to occasional posts with the same depth of thought as a gnat in heat. If he's trying to be divisive, he's not given it much thought. Also - he should try to be less divisive. He should run a sub called 'TheStateOfSaidit' with (knee-jerk) notes on what he read that day.

    Bonus: Despite being in the top 17 (in my window) earlier in the day and fading out, these comments have actually boosted it organically back up to be #13 anyway.

    Thanks for your participation. I don't even need to private message notify anyone.

    [–][deleted] 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (37 children)

    Two of my comments regarding this. I'm sure there's a third somewhere. It'd be easier to find if Dio's content wasn't scrubbed.

    What do you mean "on you"?

    I had a near weekly hate thread about me in a reddit sub I was the top contributor for. Just slander and lies, but eventually people started to believe it.

    It's made me dislike seeing people called out.

    Reminds me of you and u/socks fighting.

    Cheers, Muskrat.

    Have you seen baseball movies like 'The Bad News Bears' or variations on that kind of movie? Sometimes I think the various characters on Saidit - and their consistent idiosyncrasies would form a funny baseball team in a movie. Some of the approaches by some of the users are almost predictable. I see that the posts from the fake accounts take advantage of this. Not that I have anything to contribute at the moment.

    Sorry about Reddit. I've thought for many years that it's active users are primarily pubescent.

    [–][deleted] 4 insightful - 3 fun4 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 3 fun -  (3 children)

    Heya Socks!

    Bad News Bears was big in my childhood. Surprised people still remember it. Optimistic you think we're all a bunch of likeable misfits. I like it though. I like to believe nearly everyone is essentially a decent human being, or tries to be.

    Not that I have anything to contribute at the moment.

    I don't blame you for not wanting to get into this weird shit.

    Sorry about Reddit. I've thought for many years that it's active users are primarily pubescent.

    It wasn't a majority of people. It was just a small, vocal, group with an agenda. Originally anyways. Other people got caught up, not really realizing why it had started in the first place. I guess that's another reason I was thinking of it.

    [–]JasonCarswell[S] 6 insightful - 6 fun6 insightful - 5 fun7 insightful - 6 fun -  (2 children)

    Do NOT lump me in with those other clowns. I was protesting the few fixable flaws of SaidIt years before they even showed up.

    [–][deleted] 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

    I wasn't lumping you in with them, but they are inexorably connected to the current censorship debate. Which is unfortunate because who the fuck wants to be associated with neo nazi incel pedophiles.

    [–]JasonCarswell[S] 2 insightful - 3 fun2 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

    I was hoping not, but I wanted it to be extra clear for readers. I won't deny we have issues in common and others opposed.

    I don't know enough about them to label them as such. From what I glean they pretend to be progressives while pushing communism propaganda and divisive chaos, including Alt-Right memetics. To be honest, I don't think they really stand for anything but 8chan type chaos.

    [–]JasonCarswell[S] 3 insightful - 3 fun3 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

    That's pretty funny actually. "There's no lying in baseball!"

    [–]JasonCarswell[S] 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (30 children)

    Thanks for digging those up, though they don't really explain too much.

    For what it's worth, I've also pointed out people who use pejorative insults and M7 has dealt with them. If that's part of what you were referring to. (I'll read those posts over in full soon.)

    " No matter what m7 does he's going to make people unhappy here. "

    That's why I proposed the fairness on SaidIt idea to distribute the "blame" to a jury of peers - AND relieve some of the burden and target off M7. 12 jurors, a judge, and the wider system (guards, warden, executioner) makes for a wider targets in the court system for a reason. The difference here is that instead of a corrupt system we have a proven benevolent admin who seems intent on suffering under his current limited system. If there's a better alternative or even some small improvements MANY of us would be much happier. I won't drag people's names into it because I don't think I need to or ever should.

    At least socks never stalked me.

    I know it's not much, my comments are more a jumping off point. Trying to dig through a lot of posts on a phone is cumbersome, I just vagely remembered these were popular (for me I mean) comments so I could sort them and only search through three pages.

    One of Dio's posts that my comment references it is when he brought up u/fschmidt's friend. That wasn't the first but that's as good as my memory is.

    At least socks never stalked me

    Yeah but you two really got into it, and now y'all don't fight like that anymore. Airbus doesn't seem like a bad person to me. I don't agree with everything they say, but well, who does agree on everything here.

    That's why I proposed the fairness on SaidIt idea to distribute the "blame" to a jury of peers

    I believe a benevolent dictator is the best way, direct democracy doesn't work. Maybe a Serf's Bill of Rights, cause I think some minor things like letting people know who and why is banned, because to do otherwise riles up the serfs. Like someone wrote earlier, it's a small place, it's people you know disappearing.

    [–]JasonCarswell[S] 4 insightful - 5 fun4 insightful - 4 fun5 insightful - 5 fun -  (28 children)

    " y'all don't fight like that anymore "

    Socks is actually quite insightful some of the time, but he's a believer and supporter of the tyrannical corporatocracy, often with the behaviour of shills. I figured he was intelligent enough to see the errors of his ways and tried to help him see things better (obviously from my limited biased perspective), but he's set in his ways. I have no more time nor drama for him on that front, try to pick my battles carefully, and won't much need to debate him in depth, especially when others do just as well bashing their heads against his brick wall. More important than Socks is that all the readers, lurkers, viewers, etc. have a chance to weigh things and make up their own minds on those matters.

    Airbus has been stalking/harrassing me across SaidIt far and wide for the last 2 days. Until yesterday I valued many of his insights so I had him in my /s/friends but this behaviour is unseemly. If M7 bans him, that may be why. Debating with Socks is one thing. Airbus is actively shit disturbing.

    Having a "dictator" makes him the only target. It also makes his burdens heavy. Lighten that load and he could focus more effectively on defenses, analysis, strategy, security, alternatives, solutions, as well as build a sense of community (that Chipit says doesn't exist) and layout some goals and a future. You know, leadership stuff.

    I'll never ask for SaidIt to be under a direct democracy, tyranny of the many. People like Socks, Chipit, and others might get elected. I wouldn't even suggest that M7 might be foolish enough to select them as part of his team. I'm guessing he knows them better than most of us do.

    " Serf's Bill of Rights "

    LOL! Not a bad idea, though I can't really see how it's much different than my call for improvements. Ultimately it's still in his hands if he even were to even acknowledge our Magna Carta. We have no collective strength.

    I don't see people disappearing. It ebbs and flows. is now a thing again. Other alternatives are bound to pop up as censorship grows. has some outdated info on where we've been. Last year took a downturn though I think that was majorly artificial because I recorded Alexa numbers on IG and later found completely different numbers on Alexa. They altered their history. - How is Alexa only reporting the USA and India omitting the rest of the world, including me in Canada and others in Europe and beyond? Anyone speak Hindi or Punjabi here? - This seems much more legit to me. The downturn after the Summer Of Lovkdown is completely understandable. Note that USA, Australia, UK, Canada, Ireland are all represented.

    I think ChipIt's viewpoint is reasonable, although I have met a lot of great friends online I can say I also have met some real deranged fuckers. I can see opting out of that experience completely.

    You say dictator, well I mean I said dictator, but I could have easily of said Leader. Someone has to Captain the ship.

    People like Socks, Chipit, and others might get elected.

    I'm not sure I'd be any better. Re: nuke from orbit (that is a great movie). I totally get why M7 is doing this, for the good of the many. Heavy is the head that wears a crown and that hullabub. Not to romanticize it, but I empathize with how it's fucking work bringing you no entertainment that you invest significant resources in. Cause what needs to be done is not always appreciated. You can't be everyone's friend, not every one is going to get what they want. You pick and direction and that's on you. Some people are gonna get fucked in this. You wanna have a court of appeals for PedoGuy? Jesus, there's only so much of that I can take in a lifetime.

    And nobody ever sticks around to help....

    though I can't really see how it's much different than my call for improvements.

    We're coming at the same idea from different angles. Yours is more far reaching and idealistic, but it requires significant effort and bureaucracy (I even hate spelling that word). Lots and lots of bureaucracy. My brain cells will be expended towards bureaucracy. Bureaucracy.....

    Mine is just like yo, M7, throw us a bone here. It's much more reasonable and readily achievable.

    We have no collective strength.

    We ARE the means of production here, comrade. Without content, this is an empty website. It's not a very strong position on reddit because there's so many of us. And I don't think either side should be heavy handed about that, but rather realize there's benefit to reasonable compromise.

    Have you tried telling [Airbus] to calm their tits?

    Multiple times. I think they're in love with me. Either that or they want me to lose my shit and get banned.

    Even dictators and captains and leaders share the load over their minions, crew, and flock. I don't want to dethrone M7 at all. I'm trying to legitimately help him the best way I know how, obviously not in a concern-troll way some accuse me of.

    I empathize with how it's fucking work bringing you no entertainment that you invest significant resources in.

    Me too. We've all invested countless hours into helping build this site and community. SaidIt and we are all an important part of the resistance to the global corporatocracy tyranny. All this time I could have been doing some other job making money, etc etc etc. Soon I aim to sort of do both.

    And nobody ever sticks around to help....

    I don't think that's at all true or I don't know what you mean.

    I also despise bureaucracy, yet I realize it's often necessary to maximize cooperative efficiency. I would love anarchy to be the default of the land, but realistically I know that some free people would just collaborate into an exploitative mob and start the whole mafia government up again - so ultimately I'm a more practical minarchist, including some bureaucracy. Either way, both anarchism and minarchism mean less power to the ruling class and their rigged systems.

    We ARE the means of production here, comrade. Without content, this is an empty website.

    Yes and no. I'm currently sticking my neck out a bit. You are among the few who are speaking up in support. If I were axed I wonder how many if any would protest or quit or whatever. If we and a handful or a big bunch were banned, what then? This site would just have a different character and evolve without us. M7 might even be demoralized and pack it in. I certainly do NOT want any of that, nor for M7 to ever quit. I just want improvements and progress - even slowly if need be.

    There's benefit to reasonable compromise.

    IIRC, the SaidIt costs have been covered by donations for some time. It's certainly easy enough to put "donate" in the header or sidebox.

    Indeed, we need programmers.

    And we need public relations, media, and original content. I'm working on these AND the bureaucracy / infrastructure to manage them. /s/GlossedAndProfound and /s/BittersweetSeeds will be dusted off and improved along with the new /s/LeverMind. All will be revealed in time for feedback and improvements. I'm starting these SaidIt-based interactive projects with hopes we may all participate and consider them ours and worth supporting and growing. My focus will narrow on these, away from current event distractions.

    I wish more Canadians were more like me, but better lookin.

    Yes, people do notice. We are a community, regardless what Chipit thinks.

    I replied in parts earlier through edits, I think there were 3 major revisions. You covered a lot. I don't know how if you've seen the whole reply. Sorry, it's awkward, but I do everything from my phone.

    especially when others do just as well bashing their heads against his brick wall.

    I think people are mean to Socks. He gets called a lot of names and I don't know if you noticed, but he doesn't start off calling people names himself. I mean, sure, once he gets worked up, but fuck, we all do that here. Oh well, he's a big boy. It's just an idle observation. He does remind me a lot of myself when I was younger.

    Fuck, I gotta reply in parts again. Family needs me.

    what offense has been committed?

    I still don't know.

    DioJr showed me some screenshots of M7 being upset in his fashion but I didn't see the start and there seems to certainly be nothing wrong with what I saw.

    That doesn't make him innocent either.

    By the time you start taking screenshots the worst may have already been erased. Alternatively, by selective editing the incriminating evidence may be omitted.

    We may never know.

    Are the real parties at interest willing to forgive?

    Are the real parties at interest willing to forgive?

    Excellent question!!!

    I even had this thought myself when drafting or polishing up yesterday's post, but I forgot to include it.

    I can only speak for myself, for whatever that matters as I'm not the banned person. I would be more than happy to put this behind us. I don't buy into "forgiveness" or "forgetting", but I can certainly move past and not dwell on it. I would hope that /u/diogenesjunior and /u/magnora7 might feel the same, and I'll PM DioJr a link to here to find out what he thinks.

    Ideally, M7 will adopt a better system because this is bound to happen all over again with someone else.

    Also, it would be wonderful if all of DioJr's content were restored. IMO it was juvenile to delete it, even if pissed off.

    Why the drama?

    What's stopping him from making another account?

    [–][deleted] 4 insightful - 4 fun4 insightful - 3 fun5 insightful - 4 fun -  (2 children)

    He did that once.

    Did he try Flyogenes_III?

    Get it. The 3rd.

    Good questions.

    IP address? The principle of the thing? I don't know. Ask DioJr in a PM. He made DioJr2 but apparently it was also banned.

    I've already expressed why I'm doing this. I want a more fair system so we can see why IMO good folks get banned like /u/useless_aether and /u/diogenesjunior.

    Are they the same person?

    [–]JasonCarswell[S] 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

    Anything's possible. From my experience they have very different styles.

    As a new account that's about 10 minutes old.

    You're creating suspicious behavior. Go put your time into something meaningful.

    So how long do we have to wait until some "saidit detective" starts accusing you of being the same user? lol

    Some have tried over the last ~2.5 years and even recently in jest, maybe seriousness. If they're that determined I say go for it, I'm all about truth-seeking, but it's their time they'll waste. I'd have to be super talented and busy to do all of my shit AND other aliases - and keep them all straight. I'm not that good nor organized. Honesty is always easier, though sometimes more difficult in the short term.
