How about a button so we can ignore these ignorant racists and their submissions ?

Anti semitic, how so. Point to posts that are what you say they are. Would you be refering to my post about the jesuits?

I think for just about any given situation, potential problems wait. If there are those who want to cause issues, then they usually have a decent chance, short of just getting bored.

As far as posting, and quality of posts, that's a possible issue right there. For example, I like reading current events, sometimes I hunt down really off the wall weird stuff, and why, I don't know. I like sharing what I read, and post it here, or on Facebook. I usually try to write out a decent comment, but where I fail, is in further discussion. It's not so a real mystery to me, but just falls into the line of not really that talkative. So, in a given day, I can post up usually between 5, and 8 topics.

If we're worried about a front page, and what people see, it may need for that page to have tighter controls; perhaps even manually elevated topics for discussion.

I'm not really sure, but I do know, the enemy usually uses rules against others, and if they're aren't any rules, then they give reason to.

Well obviously Mr "Me+7" is someone trolling me - as for me - it was a choice of name meant to ingratiate me with some people I was trying to investigate and let's leave it at that lol.

I agree. Nader is the man, and he still got fucked over.

However, from Bernie's position he could see that fighting this would ruin his name for all of MSM history. He's just like everyone else.

No. Nader was legit progressive.

Bernie is Democrat-lite.

Interesting idea, I'll consider it.

I don't know, though; this is a really, really tricky problem.

It honestly is. I think it's the problem of the decade, as far as the internet is concerned. I bet books had a similar problem when the printing press was invented. So much propaganda masquerading as real information, and so hard to tell what is what.

What if Trump was still elected.
He'd be shunned like Nader. That's worse than death.

So you're saying all the racism spam will still show up to new users, so only racist spammers will sign up for an account?

That might be true... It's a hypothetical though, and this problem goes a little further. Voat is a good example of what happens. I would say it's been one of the most successful attacks I've seen. What happens now if you get an account and say something that goes against the narrative, or even just say something that's normal and unrelated, you won't find a receptive audience. So there's NOTHING BUT racism and hate there.

I don't mind racism and hate. In fact I think those kinds of discussions are necessary. But what I do mind is when there's NOTHING BUT racism and hate.

Keep in mind the people who talk like that are probably less than 10% of people (and I think that's being generous). Most people who come here will be normal. Not Reddit normal (which has the same problem at the opposite end of the spectrum), but normal.

The sell out should have bowed out or not misrepresented himself or been the hero he could have been. He didn't push nothing left.

And maybe they wouldn't have assassinated him.

We'll never fucking know.

So do you really think he should run again - and sheep dog us again - and loose again to corruption? FUCK THAT!

The Republicans tell you what they are. The Democrats are worse because they lie about what they are.

Nuke Washington from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

Do you really think it's reasonable to ask someone to willingly be assassinated? The DNC is corrupt as hell. If he want murdered, then they'd set him up with something else. I think that his property fiasco is a setup for not being as supportive.
I too, was disappointed when he quit and then "supported" Hillary. He wasn't enthusiastic. Everyone knew better. I'd he hadn't, then Trump may have still won and he'd be eternally blamed for that.

He was in a lose-lose situation. He kept his committee chair, and pushed the party to the left. That was his stated goal.

WTF? Bernie ain't no victim and deserves all the blaming for being a coward! Fuck im!

How about all the victims of the evil corrupt system getting even more evil and corrupt when it could have been "less" evil? If only there was someone who... oh yeah, Bernie.

The trouble with that, however, is that new readers will still be biased in that way and we'll gain more undesirable new users than the other end of undesirable and the entire site will slowly shift its culture in one direction anyway.

The consensus seems to be to do so, so this action won't be "dictatorial admins manipulating Saidit" if it happens.

It's not fake news. The whole point is to prevent that sort of thing, without having to resort to authoriarianism and the pushing of narratives. If Saidit dies, we've lost something special.

Could you add a kind of "trash" (functionally downvote) button, hidden away in the "report" section? One that had transparency of use. That way, the community can delete it, and if people are misusing this then the policy can be reviewed.

I don't know, though; this is a really, really tricky problem.

That's probably not quite the best way; the best way would be to call them out on it. But whatever keeps you from accidentally upvoting it.
