Yes I actually spent 5 hours today developing a tool to better detect this exact thing, as a matter of fact. I'm going to begin scanning through a lot of users and threads with the new software, beginning tomorrow.

is Saidit doing anything to combat this? Farming post karma on many accounts to sway public opinion, brigading posts against their agenda to make it appear like many different users on aged accounts are negatively responding when it could be only 1 or 2 users.

The inverse could also be true right? "Farming (or Boosting) post karma on many accounts to sway public opinion, brigading posts for their agenda to make it appear like many different users on aged accounts are positively responding" Or it could even be veteran users pushing an agenda, attacking many who are against their agenda?

Either way, I'm the account deletion (issue13) user but my accounts tend not to age long. I also have a tendency to argue against mainstream narratives or attempt to pop some hive bubbles but I wouldn't care enough to sway public opinion on it. Just enough to learn something in the challenge of playing devil's advocate and providing an anti-thesis to popular narratives.

If my numerous account deletions are a nuisance though, feel free to ban me and I won't participate any longer. I'll get the message and won't skirt around the ban, otherwise I may troll or attempt at some posts at leisure. Just wanted to be upfront here! I'll keep this account for like a day or so in case you were to respond.

Yes, that's exactly what I'm talking about.

Saidit doesn't have downvotes so there are no downvote brigades here.

and while they're at it, can saidit remove the kkk, white nationalists, neo-nazi and alt-reicher trash from the site?

No! this ain't reddit! They don't do ban happy around here. You might wanna go back there or raddle instead. All those other guys are welcome as long as they are ok with being challenged on perspectives and don't muscle everyone else out! And can follow the rules.

No! There is already a popular place for them at voat.co or poal.co and they are trashy!

Saidit doesn't support any specific ideology. If you find freedom of speech as Nazism you got that wrong 180°.
