Okay I'm not trying to personally attack you, your just an example because you own a high amount of subs without any intent to stop.

DM = Direct Message

And all I'm saying is that there should be a hard limit of subs per user of ~50 or something so no one person can mod to much of the subs and in turn not have to much control over the narratives.

I will attest that at least one of the subs jason has is modded by me and I invited him and he has been helpful. He wasn't pushy or anything to come over and be a mod. We are just a very small site right now so a lot of the new power users just look very busy with forming lots of subs.

I understand and u/JasonCarswell (I pinged because I want you to know) if your willing to once the right users come along and this site grows give those subs to other users, then your doing nothing wrong.

I'd only used you as an example due to your high Sub count I understand your not Hoarding for personal gain.

Edit: Improved content and Format

Even if I kept them all and more I'd still be doing nothing wrong.

When I do something wrong, only then will I have done something wrong.

We do not need pre-crime police here.

That's fair.

The Autobahn became famous for not having any speed limits.

Q: If you add a speed limit to the Autobahn, what do you get?

A: You turn a free-way into just another shitty highway.

It may be riskier in some ways. In other ways not. Between Toronto and Windsor is 4 hours of the boring-est highway and LOTS of people die every year from falling asleep driving it.

Fast or slow, if someone fucks up, survives, and is responsible, then they must be held accountable. Not before. Not preemptively.

Sagely advice

Deal with evil when evil comes. In one sub or a thousand.

Otherwise stop using me as an example and fuck off. I'm not evil and resent being compared to it.

If I fuck 50 girls don't put a limit on me because there's a rapist around town.

d3rr has 58 and I'm not envious of his prowess nor hold it against him.

magnora7 has 90 subs.

All my subs, in order of conception, maker first:

That means only 8 are mine exclusively plus my 4 projects with my aliases.

And somewhere in there I made /s/WatchPeopleDie, un-modded, and gifted that away to someone who wanted it badly before their 2 weeks were up.

/s/altrightwebm I joined to help with their CSS. I've had a shitty 2 weeks in pain and haven't yet. When I'm done I'm gonna jump off it. I'm anarcho-Marxist anyway.

From the beginning and since then I have always invited magnora7 and d3rr. magnora7 has never accepted but I have not recinded. d3rr stopped accepting after a while as he said it might not look good collecting a bunch. Nonetheless he's still there, for when I'm not, and if/when I eject. There are no other complicated reasons why that I'm aware of.

Get off my dick. You crazy.

Thanks for the support. I haven't forgotten you. You are still in my messages. I've had a shitty 2 weeks.

Meanwhile, bust my balls when I do something wrong. Not before. Don't let your imaginations go wild over numbers of subs, empty, full, busy, or trickling.

[–]send_nasty_stuff 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

I wasn't the one ball busting. I just agreed with the sub limit rule idea. I think it's natural for people in our truther/dissident community to be hyper skeptical of people so it doesn't normally bother me when people challenge me or question my motives. In fact I expect it. We've been gaslit for years by the media/corporate/military machine and we are all a bit on edge. I think a lot of the men in the movement are also trying to find their masculinity again so it's a space with people that like to challenge and be a bit aggressive.

I know you weren't. I still want people to call me on my shit so I can learn from it.

But I don't want limits put on me or anyone out of fear of crimes they haven't committed.

If this was my own site would anyone tell me how many articles I could write?

Are there limits on YouTube about how many videos you can make? (Actually I think four a day - but that could go on accumulating for years, like Pewdypie.)

I already have the 1 sub/week limit and will abide by that. I don't agree with it but I will respect it.

I have asked people what subs they are going to make and most people don't even think about it. I could count on one hand how many have asked about my future plans. I find that shocking. No one here has any foresight or ambition to plan things out or to find ways to cultivate this community and culture. Maybe it won't matter. Maybe it will bite us in the ass fatally.

I embrace skepticism. But fear and limits aren't that.

Lastly with all this energy wasted, someone could have learned to code and build metatags or categories for SaidIt and I would no longer want any subs, kinda like Steemit.

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

DUDE, I already fucking said I filled up all the pressing subs and am going to focus on my own projects.

Read my tedious rant:

As long as people continue to make shitty subs I'm gonna make my subs with intent to serve the greater good of SaidIt as best as I know how.

If you think /s/fashwave (EDM for fascists), /s/traaaaaaannnnnnnnnns (Happy gay sounds), /s/watchpeoplesurvive, /s/MildlyInteresting, and /s/RestrictedSubTest are more worthy than most of mine, then I'm open to hearing how.

Yet you are attacking me and using me as an example and poisoning people against me for NOTHING. I haven't even bothered to learn how to use moderation tools because I don't need to. MOST people on here are not asstrolls.

Now you're moving the goal post about limiting the control over the narratives.

Okay please read my comment in which I pinged/mentioned you before you continue to be hostile please.
