I believe s/ironleft is made up of a separate group of people. I even know some of the ironleft people and they—the ones I know—wouldn't take part in this racial nonsense. I could be wrong of course and will message you if I notice anything more on this.

Yes, the signature approaches of these trolls are very much like 8chan trolls who were on Voat, and I think are on Gab, Parlor, and Ruqqus.

/u/magnora7 previously considered that the trolls were potentially from Reddit, to fuck with smaller alternative sites like Saidit. But the trend - at least more recently (contrasted with 3 years ago) - is much more like the activities of trolls on 8chan, Voat, Gab, Parlor, and Ruqqus. They have long memories of these sites and thus try to speak to the specific demographics of the sites. They were also previously on Reddit, before the banning of The_Donald and other subs.

Are they paid by special interest groups to do this? Perhaps, but I'm not sure if they have to be paid if their main interest is to push people away from certain sites to that they move to Gab, Parlor, and Ruqqus (Dio went to Ruqqus), or they avoid the extremist views on some of these sites, which thereby become hiveminds for the altright - impressively constructed by these trolls and like-minded altright SJWs.

In short, I think you're right, and that the trolls are from extreme right-wing sites (and previous right-wing sites) that are trying to consolidate influence (of disinformation and misinformation).

Here is my speculation on this recent phenomena. Remember the Cher episode of a month or so ago? The style of the person who did that is a guy I recognize from Voat in the past. His style is unique. OK, when Voat went belly up, he started organizing his old friends from a sub called Soapbox BanHammer who were not loved and admired even on voat, and now they have come to saidit with their VPNs and evil intent but mostly just to piss everyone off. I'm talking about you Gabara. Anyone else recognize his style from voat? Can you technical people figure out how to get these folk outta here?

Insightful comment, thank you.

I can't speak about the other drama, whether it's one or more, or different factions, or different factions under some organization - all I can do is speak for myself, and I'm not in league with any of them in any way. I can't even speak for all of DioJr's actions because the goof deleted his history - a cover up and/or a childish tantrum.

I make no demands. I'm asking for M7 to restore DioJr and employ a better system. I'm trying to protest as effectively (and thus as respectfully) as I can. I know no other way and am open to suggestions.

As for "disrupting the place", I would argue that I'm hardly that among so much inconsistency, hostile debates, psyops, and incendiary post on current events.

" I think it says a lot about M7 that we can have open discourse about how things are handled here and even harsh criticism is tolerated. "

I can wholeheartedly applaud and second that. I've never called for him to step down or any such infantile thing.

" I have't heard anything so far that I think needs to be implemented "

I'd value your feedback on this idea for fairness on SaidIt, and easing of magnora7's burdens.

Ok. I've been kicking back eating some popcorn over the past week or two while I watch how this plays out. I'll throw out my opinion. I don't comment on the obvious troll/shill posts because as some have said, it only reinforces the bad behavior. This person or group needs the noise provided by those who react to them. It doesn't matter if it's a shill, troll, or someone with a vendetta (or group of these types). I suspect, as M7 said, that there are older, normal seeming sleeper accounts used to herd users in a way to create chaos or in-fighting. I personally haven't ruled out anyone, but there are a few I suspect to be sleeper accounts and a few I am fairly sure aren't. It only benefits the trolls to have these unproven accusations against each other within these kinds of discussions. I also suspect the troll is accusing his own accounts of being complicit to add even more confusion. I have noticed certain "patterns" with certain users, but without more than suspicion, I will continue to respectfully interact with others as long as they show the same respect.

With that said, I do think that because this is a privately run site open to the public, the owner/head admin has the final say and authority to do as they want and anyone disrupting the place with demands and stunts should be banned. Most of us are guests here, even if some here have gone above to enriched this site with their contributions and building skills. I think it says a lot about M7 that we can have open discourse about how things are handled here and even harsh criticism is tolerated. Discussion like this is good for the site while it is still relatively small, but the fighting and mudslinging can only help the one(s) trying to disrupt the conversation and cohesiveness even amongst differing points of view. I don't have the skill set or desire for moderating a website and I have't heard anything so far that I think needs to be implemented, but I like that people here are willing to discuss these things.

You know, Pyramid of Debate and all that stuff.

We must relearn respect, humility, civility, virtue, if we are to survive to rebuild civilization after the present crisis. Free speech, the unfettered exchange of ideas, is essential.

This will only be possible if the present crisis is actually solved, which will make it necessary to rebuild civilization. None of that can happen while our society is overrun by our enemies.

8kun=imageboard. Ancient pastas (referring to TEAM BRO'ERHOOD I assume)=old copied/pasted shit from there. Is he indicating that we're being attacked by 8kun? If that's the case, this whole thing can be resolved by responding with brigades of lower-case one word racial slur responses?It looks too overly thought out to be from there, overly Reddit-y.

You are sounding strange now, lets go away

How very peculiar that you used that "go away" phrase.

Here's the PM correspondence from /u/bald-janitor:

Also, /u/bald-janitor PMed me yesterday and again today with complete nonsense, like they're bots or something. First times.

I can quote them if anyone cares. Because it's nonsense I don't feel like I'll break anyone's confidence.

I'm not demanding. I'm asking. Nagging at best. The IronLeft have demands. There is a difference.

You're trolling. That's worse.

I said it's okay to list the times and locations, but not the actual addresses. They may belong to me, someone I know, or someone innocent - or not. Let's start there.

If there's an IP from Russia or whatever then we need to figure out why. The IP doesn't really matter at that point. Security does. We/I'll need to narrow down why.

I don't know enough about IP security, ddos, and all that shit. So I don't want random addresses attacked or whatever by whatever kind of association they allegedly have with me.

If /u/d3rr says it's okay then I'll say release all the IP's that are not in Windsor Ontario Canada for almost full disclosure.

Also, feel free to use the SaidIt and SaidIt-chat server records.

I put myself out there.

I don't want my computer jammed up or hacked and obviously I won't share financial info.

I said it's okay to list the times and locations, but not the actual addresses. They may belong to me, someone I know, or someone innocent - or not.

If they do not all list Windsor Ontario then we have a problem.

Yes, until yesterday /u/Airbus320 was on my /s/friends for being insightful.

IMO, keep the playing field even - but give the players different colour shirts they earn.

Keep in mind, age and/or high points do not necessarily mean high quality, so M7 and/or the community can determine who is worthy of the top-tier/advisor status, or whatever we call it. AND because it's all open, people can fade, make mistakes, etc etc etc and lose that status. For more on the tiers see the chart.

No extra powers, just earned visible respect.

It could go the other way too. People who troll accumulate downward minor infractions (with expiration) until they strike out. Major strikes are another thing. IMO strike out should literally mean strike out and not be censored/removed unless it's illegal content.

Oh, once more regarding /u/Airbus320. Turns out I was just confusing him for /u/AirSeddit88. The latter's an actual contributor, the former just spams and has been here for only 3 months.

The difference is that members gradually get more voting power as they establish themselves (both for post and comment voting). This makes infiltration more difficult, but still allows everyone to participate.

Exactly.

IMO, new accounts should need to earn their commenting, voting, and posting rights from the existing user base.

How are users going to earn their rights if they can't comment or post? I think barriers to entry are a bad idea, because its bars the contributors as well. I, for one, wouldn't be here if such a system were used. Contributing means giving – I can't stand needing to earn that. I think the system used on Hacker News is a step up. They have downvotes like on Reddit, which I think is a good thing by itself. The difference is that members gradually get more voting power as they establish themselves (both for post and comment voting). This makes infiltration more difficult, but still allows everyone to participate.

Regarding /u/Airbus320: I've seen him post insightful comments, but now that I'm looking at his account overview, I do get the impression he's a troll or paid shill. No idea why else he'd start spamming like that.

That was legitimately insightful. It's why you can't be friends with your subordinates, and it sucks.

Dammit, 8 months! I could have had a baby in that time (if I was actually allowed to get within 2m of other human beings irl).
