wow, i dont want them to be banned, but it would be insane if they moved to saidit

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

Exactly, just what I was thinking.

Then trump supporters would literally be hailed as nazis

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

Assuming this place is for Nazis.

Uhh...no. Voat. Saidit is little safer, sadly.

I’m confident that Reddit could sway [US] elections. We wouldn’t do it, of course. And I don’t know how many times we could get away with it. But, if we really wanted to, I’m sure Reddit could have swayed at least this [2016] election, this once.

Meanwhile:

-Reddit's head of policy has written articles suggesting that Trump and his supports are the equivalent of a Caliphate and must be stopped (while working for the Atlantic Council).

-Reddit's director of communications started her career working for Diane Feinstein and Progressive think tanks.

-Reddit censors what it describes as the biggest community of Trump supporters on the internet.

-Reddit's CEO has admitted to surreptitiously editing comments in this same community due to its criticism of him

-Reddit now censors meme focused communities dedicated to r/Mr_Trump

-Reddit tells the media it will not censor the name of the alleged Trump whistleblower while it censors multiple posts in this community for doing so (a fact which will later be held against it to maintain the censorship of the community via quarantine)

-Reddit suspends project veritas

-Reddit shutters legal communities dedicated to homemade firearms while Spez signs public letters calling for more gun control

Reddit's head of policy says:

The purpose of quarantining a community is to prevent its content from being accidentally viewed by those who do not knowingly wish to do so

How is it at all reasonable to apply this standard to supporting the incumbent of an election in a democratic republic?

You also can't post "4chan.org", your post or message will instantly disappear. Not sure about comments.

not sure if posting 'text posts' and hiding links inside would work

Not surprised that sub was created, but sort of surprised it hasn't been removed. It's like an ISP hosting ads on their main site for other ISP's lmao. Don't forget to follow the money.

[–]d3rr 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

It's a pretty small sub, probably not big enough for Reddit to worry about.

Don't forget to follow the money.

Thank you, I keep forgetting, it's bullshit. Someday I'll follow it up to the top and then back in time.

I used to say that was impossible, that reddit could effect the election, tha it is not that big a site, but I have been seeing it mentioned and referenced more and more on fb by my boomer relatives

    Cool, thanks. I've never known about it or tried it. Seems like a way to separate and conquer support.

    There is a lot of political activity on Discord. For the most part it's uncensored. But there are cases, much like all platforms. I suspect all "legit" platforms, including funding sites, must inspire at least a modicum of terror and doubt. To my limited knowledge, I know of very few who have yet to censor, and hold little faith in the holdouts won't fold if necessary.

    And who is this anti-trump gossip spreader?

    Found it: Other posts show the name: Eric Ciaramella

    I'm sure anti-harassment was important to them for Nick Sandman or the guy who made the CNN WWE gif. Why didn't reddit stand up against CNN when they started threatening their user?

    I'm done with reddit.

    No loss.

    God I loathe Reddit. Post after post all trotting out the same shiny happy people banalities. I even preferred Voat to them, despite the odd hurr durrs, at least their was some semblance of original thought there. I wish sites like this had more interaction.
