Lol, its not breaking the law, they violate the law. Away with the lies and excuses to sugarcoat censorship. Nobody's done anything wrong, they shouldn't be abused and banned.

its not breaking the law, they violate the law.

That's what we thought for a while, which is why we allowed it in the first place. But it turns out that's not true. Just like if illegal porn is on the site, we the admins are held responsible from a legal perspective.

It sucks, but it's why we have to make this change. It's either that or saidit gets put at serious risk as the future approaches.

No, it is true. Just like porn, its not illegal unless there's underage junk in it. How can they call porn illegal? There's porno sites all over the web lol. These days, the Word is just a meaningless label for mudducks to abuse. Just like racism, fake news. Things are just labeled cause they don't want you to do something.

I agree 100%. But I still don't want saidit to be shut down and taken away.

same, but that doesnt mean you should bend over to blue isis, lol

If it were just a potential risk that'd be one thing, but the more I research it it seems like an inevitability we'd get shut down, especially if that's the site's core userbase.

saidit is still young yet, who's to say GM will still be the core userbase as the site grows and expands.

That was increasingly the direction things were moving given the numbers, but you're right.

mmm, not rly, your counting over a small period of time. this ban will be essentially the death of saidit, right now, the ban is the equivalent of chopping your head, legs, and arms off, lol.

rethink the ban, or atleast delay it

We rethought the ban for the last 2 weeks. I don't think you realize how much thought has been put in to this decision and how hard it was to make.

You realize all these greymarket people are here only because their previous website domesticrcs.com got raided by the FBI, right? And that that's now the top search term leading to saidit? I'm not just spinning yarns here, there are serious reasons we had to make this change.

Are you talking about FOSTA? A law that hasn’t been signed yet? The real question is why not a single website on the internet isn’t opposed to this law and is already adhering to it even though the president has yet to sign it.

No the rules holding admins responsible for illegal porn (and other content on what should be a black-box service) have been around for 5+ years at least.
