Beats me. I noticed that the servers were alive again, so I undid the redirect.

Thanks for all you do D3.

Where is M7? If these servers are his responsibility and he maintains ultimate control over whether saidit lives or dies, we need to understand better what's going on. There are some productive conversations on here (amid the usual 99% crap of any site), but the instability of not knowing if this is a durable platform does create a lot of stress.

As the others have said, thank you D3 for being the most stabilizing force on here.

this is one of the main problems with a sole proprietorship.. if the owner dies, the entire business crumbles.

this website should be setup to have multiple directors or some other similar structure.

rest in peace, m7

[–]StillLessons 7 insightful - 2 fun7 insightful - 1 fun8 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

Particularly when the purpose of the venue is the group interaction, I agree that sole proprietorship is a weird model. That said, it's also hard to see how to maintain relatively consistent guidelines without a single guiding mind maintaining a unified philosophy. I can see it both ways.

But from a practical point of view, it may be more pressure than any individual could handle.

If you read this, M7, I do deeply appreciate the effort you have put in here and hope you are well. If the stresses of the position are overwhelming you, I recommend letting it go. Other speech venues will appear one way or another. It's not worth destroying yourself over.

Just let us know what to expect moving forward.

M7 is waiting for a buyout offer for saidit.. if saidit were to become a noticeable nuisance for the other major social media outlets, it would be reasonable to think that he could receive a twenty five million dollar buyout offer.

M7 is waiting for the money, nothing else.

Thank you /u/d3rr!!

Btw, a new modest mouse song just came out!

💜💜💜

oh shit thanks man!

[–]Enza 5 insightful - 4 fun5 insightful - 3 fun6 insightful - 4 fun -  (2 children)

Great song imho, didn’t expect a new release at all!

Hope you dig it. Thx for the being the homie and making everything right, nearly always as of late.

[–]d3rr 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

I dig it! Another one dropped today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Snskn7A3ZY0

This all feels way less personal than older MM albums but I'll hang in there.

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

This sounds almost like an 80’s new wave song lol! I dig this too, but it isn’t something you’d expect from MM at all, I could see a fan not liking this one for sure.

It seems like the album is gonna feature some kinda story telling about life/death/the in-between as well as have a “the nature of nature” theme going on. I like it so far, although it’s different for MM for sure.

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

I almost saw them live in Austin in 2001, I think. Sold out.

[–]Enza 5 insightful - 4 fun5 insightful - 3 fun6 insightful - 4 fun -  (2 children)

You fuck!! I didn’t even know of them In 2001 lol, I was in elementary school.

By the time I hit highschool I found out about them because of MySpace during its final years. I would have killed for a concert. They broke up maybe two years or a year after me finding them?

Early bird gets the worm, that’s what isaac (the lead singer) would say lol.

[–]JasonCarswell 3 insightful - 4 fun3 insightful - 3 fun4 insightful - 4 fun -  (1 child)

I heard them from outside the fence if that counts for anything.

[–]Enza 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

It definitely does, I’ve been there 😂 A local popular theater for bands is literally an open stadium floating on the beach. You can hear everything while sitting on the beach there!

Sometimes it’s more fun to hang out in the parking lot and listen to the artist live with a few friends and a blunt or two. Especially if it’s an open stadium.

Why does it keep linking back to that perverted spam bot shithole reddit?

[–]johnnybravo 6 insightful - 3 fun6 insightful - 2 fun7 insightful - 3 fun -  (1 child)

Where would you rather it redirected you to?

Massive attack by trans Bolsheviks using space lasers

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

I did see the space lasers.

[–]TheAmeliaMay 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

"Space lasers" is a reference to the "IMA FIRIN MAH LAZAH" meme. There's some DDoS software used by script kiddies that plays that audio when you turn it on.

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

They were mounted on the foreheads of space sharks.

when this site was redirecting to reddit, the /r/saiditnet sub was showing about 400 users online.

[–]Enza 6 insightful - 3 fun6 insightful - 2 fun7 insightful - 3 fun -  (4 children)

I noticed this too. It was above the subs subscribed users I remember by double.

[–]fred_red_beans 9 insightful - 3 fun9 insightful - 2 fun10 insightful - 3 fun -  (3 children)

The spam et al that was coming to saidit followed us to reddit.

[–]Enza 5 insightful - 3 fun5 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 3 fun -  (2 children)

I noticed that too, especially in the final couple of days. A lot of pharma posts.

Take your flu shot bigot

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

The flu doesn’t exist anymore. It’s Covid inoculation(s), you bigot!

[–]TheAmeliaMay 5 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

Yeah... there's a lot of bot traffic. Most of it's behind the scenes, like making dozens of alt accounts to manipulate votes on posts (which is how the iron left troll got his posts on the front page every time).

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

when i was in the seventh grade, i worked in the school library, fyi.. these forums remind me of walking into a library and hundreds of people are throwing random books at me and screaming at me.

there is no real communications between people, only throwing videos and commenting..

these forums are complete bullshit.

I have yet to hear from m7

[–]Dinosaurysus 5 insightful - 3 fun5 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

Do you and Tam have no way to contact him?

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

Hopefully he’s ok and we’ll hear from him soon. Honestly, this behavior is not like the m7 I knew so something must be going on and I hope he’s doing okay.

[–]Chipit 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (18 children)

Always with the demoralizing comments. Almost like you're being paid to post them.

[–]Node 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (9 children)

...said the account that posts random links all day long. Almost like it's your job to post and attack site users.

[–]Chipit 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (8 children)

I'm not the one injecting negativity every time the site comes up. I like to participate and have a barrel of fun. You're the one shitting on the site. It's pretty cut and dried.

[–]Node 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (7 children)

Focus on barrels of fun if you like. I prefer reality. The reality is, a site that keeps going offline is typically having issues. More has been said about what's really going on, but I don't want to overwhelm you with too much negativity at one time.

[–]Chipit 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (6 children)

Another negative comment. Whatta surprise. Yeah I bet you and your company have been piling the dirt up.

[–]Node 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (5 children)

You're the weirdest spammer on saidit who actually comments.

[–]Chipit 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (4 children)

LOL your comments don't even make sense. I don't post ads for dry cleaners in New Delhi. Begone, paid social media influencer. Get a real job.

[–]Node 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (3 children)

I'm at peace with someone from your demographic failing to understand my comments.

[–]Chipit 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

You don't even understand what a spammer is. U R Dum. Try making arguments that refute the central point next time.

Confession through projection.

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

I'm not the one trying to get the site shut down and drive off the users. I participate and post stuff all the time. Saidit is cool.

[–]JasonCarswell 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

I'm not either, though we could argue all day about how you present content and whether it's alienating.

The drama a couple months ago was to expose some of the flaws in M7's social management. The target was never SaidIt nor the community. Because of that it we had motivation and momentum to build alternatives to decentralize. I'd love to tell you everything is fine on that front but I have no clue what's going on and I don't have the technical skills to do it myself. Most SaidIt folks are lazy. The group who wants to help is like a herd of cats. At least I now have a wiki and eventually I'll be able to share it when presentable and perhaps folks will understand some of the decentralization goals and pitch in.

Its jasons alt

[–]Node 4 insightful - 3 fun4 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

Actually, I would be the primary account if there were alts involved, as I was one of the first few users on the site. It was antiextremes back then, and it was often just a handful of us.

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

I don't need an alt to demoralize - I just point to people, systems, and actions that are unfair, secretive, unaccountable, inconsistent, and deceptive, intentionally or not.

[–]Node 4 insightful - 3 fun4 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 3 fun -  (1 child)

I just point to people,

If you have any standards at all, looking too closely at this first point will be hugely demoralizing.

[–]JasonCarswell 2 insightful - 4 fun2 insightful - 3 fun3 insightful - 4 fun -  (0 children)

I should have said "people, systems, and actions of authority". All structures of power are fair game.

The image that you posted explains well enough what probably happened.
